Taipei’s Shilin Night Market.

February 14, 2009

It was a night for some food adventure. Calin and I were on a mission to try whatever our bellies can contain for the night.

The Taiwanese call this the “coffin bread” (棺材板 guān cái bǎn), which is bread stuffed with savoury filling, served toasted on the outside. I probably picked the wrong flavour (prawn & cheese) as I heard the black pepper beef filling was much better. Next time for sure! 

Amazing oyster omelet that’s very unlike those you find in Singapore. It has an amazing sauce on top of a pancake-like fried egg and fresh juicy oysters. Underneath, you will find stir fried vegetables. A must try when you visit the Shilin Night Market. 

DO NOT underestimate or be put off by these chicken backsides. 5 chickens had to give up their lives for me to stuff one stick down with glee. If you’ve never eaten this, you’ve never been to Taiwan. 
 

Lovely dessert.

What’s even better than lovely dessert? When Calin smiles till her cheeks cramp up with her cute dessert boy. 
 

When we could not eat anymore…we went to buy local goodies.
Freshly fried almonds infused with honey and other sweet fatty gooey stuff. Cooled and then packed and then purchased. 
 

Does this make you want to go to Taipei? 🙂
