the colourful taiwan cuisine part 1

Taiwan had been my fave vacation location for the past few years. It's a place with lots of interesting food outlets. From the super value street food to the super good service posh restaurant.

Posh Restaurant
Wang Steak famous for their good service.

Wang Steak, voted the most want-to-join company by the Uni grads in Taiwan for the last 2 years. Their ability to SOP good food and good service, puts them in the top of the F&B industry in Taiwan.

Street Food

Of course when we talk about food in Taiwan, street food always comes to the top of mind.
From the oyster mee sua to huge fried chicken, there are just so many choices. Do look out for new food stalls on the streets too.

The grilled juicy scallops i tried is really good. You may be thinking, "i tried in some similar grilled scallop in Singapore, and it's really CMI." But well it's just taste different in taiwan.

With so much food choice in Taiwan, it's always advisable to travel in a group to share food. Don't really want to K.O. after 2 dishes ya.

While we are still sleeping

Ever wonder what time did the hawker stalls owners starts to prepare their food, in order to be on time for the morning rush.

It's a trade that may fail to exists in the future, due to long hours and low pay.

So I visited BoonKeng market during a cool friday morning before sunrise. 

And as expected many hardworking hawker stalls owners are already busy preparing their food stuff. From sorting the raw vegetables to filling the paste onto the healthy YongTauHu.

I walk past a vegetable stall and start to take some shots with the cat looking at the stall owner working. A few shutter clicks off, and the cat turned and look at me as if posing for me in front of the stall.

I continue to walk to the cooked food market, in search of good food photo. 

Then a lady chef caught my eyes. Her focus and skilfulness in her work tells me that her siewmai is simply great.

Chatted with her for a while, she told me that she would prefer to have a cert so that she can work in the hotels. But somehow i guess she is a lot more skilful than chef in Tim Sum chain of restaurants.

It's contradicting to see lots of people unwilling to pay more for a bowl of good food, but are willing to fork out 10 times more to dine at Tim Sum chain.
