Day 3 in Taiwan

day 3...
we took a bus ride and went to a beautiful place an hr away from Tapei
it's called Kyufun
it's on the hillside with small shops (mostly food) haha!!
and it has red lanterns all hang along the path

i was starving because i didn't get to have breakfast!! so...i had some fish balls!!

and 'thousand years egg'...haha!! i think that's how the chinese supermarket in Canada translated it into.
well, it's duck eggs...but fermented one...haha!!sound gross but taste GREAT!

this!!! i remember eating it with mon chan 4 years ago in Taiwan night market!!
it's rice paper (like crepe) with peanut sugar and icecream

and grilled HUGE mushroom!! so juicy!!!
this is the FAMOUS dish in Kyufun...
it's sweet potatos made into's very chewy!! mixed with different kind of beans and peas..
one word: DELICIOUS!!
we walked around Kyufun and visited many other shops...
it was a beautiful place...i was mistakened as japanese for more than 5 times though..haha!!

anyways, we took the bus back to Taipei...
and our stomachs were asking for more food..haha
so..we went to the famous soup meat buns place...xiao lon bao

and we ate steam dumplings with vege..YUMMY!

and then...something sweet!! black sesame bun!!! GOSH!! i love black sesame!! can i forget cakes?!?! haha!!

before we realized, it's time for supper!!!
i love how eating took such a big part of my taiwan trip...haha!
we had the soup meat buns....tofu stir fried with vege
and soya milk soup....NICE AND HOT! camera went out of battery....><
well, i had couple more dishes...haha!!

we ate a lot but we also walked a lot!!!!!!!

My favourite picture from this post is the sad puppy staring at the funny Japanese lady with the camera.
