We made our annual pilgrimage to eating Taipei. This was on
Of the food we had, and pictured here was:
- Teppanyaki. It was OK. Most of the dishes tasted similar, however, Thai basil elevated them.
- We had lunch from a Myanmar café. That was interesting. A totally different combination of flavours, most of which I didn’t recognise. Peanuts were a major component.
- The old fish market. This was out of this world. I’ve never seen shrimps or crab legs this large. If I did it again, I would get more vegetables, some sweetcorn maybe.
- Family wedding. An assortment of Chinese dishes trooped out over a couple of hours. Overall, not bad. Shrimps weren’t quite as big but still juicy. Lamb chops (not something I’d associate with Taiwan) and eel (more Japanese, I’d guess).
- Tibetan. A certain style of Indian food executed competently. The garlic naan was amazing and the chicken tikka good.
- Even the final meal at the airport food court wasn’t bad. Despite my being in a wheelchair (another story) at this point! You can’t go wrong with fried chicken in Taipei!
All I can say is: if you ever get the chance to go to Taiwan: GO! Great place, great food, lovely people. Yes, English, well, American is widely spoken and there’s a 7-11 on every street corner.
