Chow Down in Taiwan - First Meal (9)

Friday, March 27, 2009 by , under ,

My mom and I stayed in Taipei for a few days to visit my god parents on our way to Malaysia last January. Unfortunately Faye couldn't join us in Taipei due to the "minor incident" we had in Los Angeles, so I promised her I will document all the food I had there so she could enjoy it, visually, at least.

The first meal I had in Taiwan was breakfast. I'm all for local food, mostly because it's authentic and it's usually good. I have no idea what it is call in English, some call it "sesame seed cake and fried bread stick", Google translate it as "deep-fried dough sticks shaobing". For all I care, it's call 烧饼油条 and it is GOOOOOD!

This thing is light, crunchy, flaky, most of all it's delicious! Pair it up with some warm soybean milk...*speechless*... And I thought the fried bread stick and soybean milk in Houston was quite good, man, was I wrong! This is da best 烧饼油条 I have ever tasted, EVER!

Perfect Combination

This 烧饼油条 is very special, two diff items combine in one, never seen before, must be very delicious.

Opppsss...forgot to mention this is actually right before I go back to Malaysia 2 months ago, ha! I'm back in US already.

It's so yummy, I really don't know how to describe it well.

Nancy - I missed it too! Too bad we couldn't get 烧饼油条 here as good as the one I sample in Taiwan.
