台灣小吃 (Taiwanese snacks)

Warning: Post contains mouthwatering pictures that may cause non-stop drooling. Recommended reading after meal. If drooling persists for an extended period, please keep stuffing yourself with food, lots of fooooood!!

Taiwan is undoubtedly a food heaven. If you're a glutton like me, who lives to eat then Taiwan is a must-go destination. There are tonnes of funny named, interesting looking finger licking food that would make you forget all about your shopping spree I tell you. SERIOUS!

Here is just a handful to whet your appetite.....


Tofu stuffed with Vermicelli


"Iron Egg" - basically five spices marinated hardened egg


Barbecued fermented tofu


Deep fried fermented tofu



Ice-cream with Peanut flakes roll


Squid sausage


Seaweed flavoured spiral potato chips


"Big roti wraps small roti" - curry flavoured breadcrumbs wrap


The famous "Ah Zong thin rice noodles"


And now....here comes my favourite, the most delicious among all (for me anyway)



Yes, it is fried bread with stuffing of your choice. I so love it, and now still missing it. 讚! 讚! 讚! 超讚!

Mind you, it is 官財板 NOT 棺材板 (coffin) ok though they sound the same. Taiwanese very superstitious one. I think no one would ever want to eat it if it is called 棺材板. Hehehehe

Hi Doreen, wow, the food all look real delicious.
You sure a real food lover.
As for me, I eat to live, not live to eat...not the type to go around just to find a certain stall.
Love the songs you have now.
Have a nice day, Doreen, Lee.
