Food in Taiwan (part 2)
Ru-yuan (meat balls) - meat marinated with hong-zhao and then covered with a dough. Cooked by immersing into hot oil. It's seen floating in hot oil when you order. Served in a paper bowl, with sauce and coriander. I dun really like this as i find the hong-zhao taste is too strong. Ru-rou fan (braised meat with rice), drunken chicken cooked in shaoxing wine, and briased bamboo shoots) - a nice meal. portions of the rice is really small.One of the shops along the streets selling plums. The name of the shop captured my attention. very cute pun. This is a snack which there's 2 scoops of ice-cream (different flavours to choose from), wrapped in a fresh popiah skin that is sprinkled with ground peanuts and chopped coriander). Nothing to shout abt taste-wise.
Yu-yuan - chewy balls of doughs flavoured with yam, sweet potatos and wad-nots. Can choose to have red beans soup as a base, top with ice (for cold orders) or just red bean soup (for hot orders). Not too bad taste wise.
Maltose candies sticks - very cute with all kinds of cartoons faces... somefin sweet to end the day in Jiu-Fen.
