When in Taipei, eat your way through Shih-Lin Night Market!
We started off with these super yummy beef brisket noodles
Then tracked down the legendary Ah Zong Mian Xian
Had a handful of super good Sheng Jian Bao (pan-fried pork buns)
And of course, BUBBLE TEA!!
This ginormous wild (farmhouse) mountain chicken totally caught our attention. It’s SO BIG, it almost looked crude.
Truth is, there’s just so much to eat and see, and everything is cheap enough you wouldn’t feel the pinch eating thrice your normal portion of dinner. Supper was pre-packed almond beancurd and Hello-Kitty brand Passionfruit Tea. Brought home a whole lot of junk food, munchies, Taiwanese produce and 2 new pairs of shoes.
And this is the real reason why I love getting in touch with my Taiwanese heritage. The serenity, the mountains, and the cool summer breeze.
"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
