Any Taiwanese Food Fanatic Out There??

Postby interzonist » 28 Sep 2006, 21:48

I'm looking for foreigners in Kaohsiung who are crazy about Taiwanese food for Lonely Planet interviews. If you are daring enough to try out those funny-looking, funky-smelling Taiwanese dishes, and even LOVE them, you're my guy/girl! Give me a buzz at: 0958-914-345 (Max). Looking forward to chatting with you!

Really? And what LP project are you working on?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Actually, there's once chance he is legit. But we'll see.

Yeah, except the LP TV show is aimed squarely at fat-arsed mall-grazers. Even tacos are exotic to those kinds of people.

Smails are daily food in France and ... horse steak is the best thing there is, low colesterol and not injected with any hormones to give more yield ... used to eat all the time in Belgium ... substitute for fucked up beef

Really, what have you tried? Reviews?

Postby Taiwan_Student » 24 Nov 2006, 19:35

Really, what have you tried? How did you like or dislike it?

Chicken Feet- My wife's family makes it quite often. I kept refusing to try it. After about four year I thought I was finally getting off this rock! I figured, I might as well try it.

It's Good! Better than good they're great! I decided to stay..

Stinky Tofu -This was also my fairwell dish. .. It really smells bad. But it tastes quite good, especially with the pickled "coleslaw" like vegegables. It creates too much gas for me, but once in a while it's ok.

Sesame Chicken Soup with lots and lots of rice wine!. When my mother in law gave it to me, I really liked it. I really could not explain why. Was it those big biting strips of ginger, the loads of speacial dark sesame oil or the strange pieces of chicken (sometime the head) floating in it? My wife said it was the rice wine. She was right!

Goat meat with Tsa Chia! This is really good. I have to be careful though. I have a fish allergy. Tsa Chai is usually a fish based sauce but there is a vegetarian version that is not bad.

There is some great dishes that are unique to Kaohsiung that are featured in this months issue a Kaohsiung Government's Bilingual magazine. They look pretty good. Please share them here...
