I realized that I still have a ton of pictures from Taiwan to share, so today I’ll do another trip recap post. This is pretty much a pictures dump post… you’ve been forewarned.
To start, my favorite meal of the day (when I’m in Taiwan)… breakfast.
This popular Cantonese dim sum is also a popular Taiwanese breakfast dish! The turnip cakes are heated on a griddle, so that the outside gets a browned and crispy.
Another classic Taiwanese breakfast item, “dan bing” – it tastes similar to the savory scallion pancake, and often served rolled up with a fried egg and some type of filling. My favorite filling is pork floss, or 肉鬆, but this one pictured above just has the egg.
Apparently, having chow mein for breakfast is a Taichung “thing”. We didn’t know this until shortly before our trip, even though S has lived in Taichung almost his entire life, hehe.
We also had a couple of meals of “traditional” Chinese/Taiwanese breakfast, with shao bing, you tiao, etc. Unfortunately, I forgot to document those…
Some other miscellaneous meals that we had…
Corn & Ham Sandwiches
I’m glad that the Taiwanese agree with my assessment that corn makes (almost) everything better. These little sandwiches made with mantou (Chinese steamed buns), ham, and corn were delicious.
