I started my day 2 in taipei with a simple and ‘typical’ breakfast near my friend, Patty’s house.
Patty suggested that i take a photo during all my meals so i can remember what I have eaten through out my stay. I followed her to her working place to wait for another friend, Chloe to take me out today.
The pearls are boiled with brown sugar. It gives the pearl a very interesting gula melaka kind of taste. The tea tasted really milky (** something that i really like). The texture of the pearls are so “Q”.. I couldnt stop after taking the first sip. If you think KOI is nice, wait till you try this :p
Hua Xi night market was the first we have decided to conquer on Day 2. Just as you have seen on TV for those Taiwan food programmes, there are rows and rows of foods stalls along the street. They are like our pasa malam. Only operating from evening till pass midnight. The habit for Taiwanese when they visit night market, is to walk, stop , eat… followed by walk, stop, eat… at different stores till the end of the street. This can add up to many dishes by the time you walk from one end to the other.
Comments: The night market is a very interesting place for me. Each and every night market has their store mix. I always think that this is an interesting place to explore the typical local food culture. Prices are quite cheap and you can really try many types of dishes. My suggestion is to always share the portion with your friends no matter how tasty the food .. this is so that there is no cause for over-eating and you can try as many dishes as possible..
