  • hey there everyone today i'm going to share with you some top eats for Taipei.

  • As an international food capital Taipei is a dynamic city of modernity, Street food

  • and fusion foods. Virtually any diet will be able to find a Taiwanese dish to

  • tempt your taste buds.

  • Now what better way to see the city then through the food

  • so today i am going to take a food tour

  • or I'm going to see the city sights and its food

  • through Taipei Eats. What's the flavor of Taiwan? Are there many flavors or popular flavors..

  • So we get this question a lot ...like it's really difficult to have

  • like a main dish in Taiwan, because we have so many different variation of foods and

  • when you get a lot of that

  • a little bit of sweet profile in our savoury foods. And we also like to mash in

  • a mixture of flavours, which the contrast boosts the other flavours.

  • Like my grandma would use like pear or Apple and they would put salt on it.

  • So the saltiness

  • boosts the sweetness of the Apple and the pear.

  • Oh.

  • So that's how you get sweet things to taste sweeter. One of my favorite Street

  • snacks is called scallion bread.

  • The Taiwanese however know it is the thousand layer bread due to its many

  • layers

  • You'll often find the Taiwanese are queued up for it . Lightly salted. ...Scallions in it.

  • Crunchy but spongey. Glutinous rice... with the inside having sesame powder and peanut powder on the outside..

  • It's one of our most favorite desserts so you're find stands like this, everywhere

  • around the city. Next up is stinky tofu and it's a favorite of Taiwanese.

  • Why do they call it stinky tofu? Well...

  • It's exactly... what you smell is what you get in your mouth.

  • yeah.

  • That's it very distinct taste.

  • I wanted to say that it smells like stinky socks. I'm gonna go in for a second bite.

  • And see if I can't get used to it.

  • That second bite was better. I think it's like one of those things where you keep trying it..

  • you start to like it. So people in Taiwan, a lot of people complain that

  • is not as stinky and had a strong flavour as before

  • Like myself.

  • I would like it to have

  • a stronger flavour. A lot of them use the...brine. So they ferment it for a really short time.

  • that's right right

  • So they ferment it for a really short time, so it doesn't have that strong

  • flavor that you used to have like 10 years ago!

  • We like it stinkier. They want it stinkier! than that

  • The smell is pleasant for us.

  • So we wouldn't say it's stinky.

  • I need a breath mint, I'm still I'm... really smelling that stinky tofu.

  • Guan Bao or the Taiwanese sandwich is typically made of a bao bun with braised pork and

  • And we also get the cilantro, peanut powder combination, which is really

  • Taiwanese.

  • They made my life with vegetables

  • There's this very sweet flavor to it.

  • And it's complimented with the peanut powder and combined with cilantro , ... omigosh.

  • It's like a knock out. I'm going to try this sauce.

  • Give it a little punch! That clump of chili will either do me good or do me

  • wrong.... but it's really good.

  • Actually, I think I'll put more sauce.

  • So these are cold noodles with some sesame dressing and some bits of garlic

  • And this is a popular Taiwanese hangover dish. The noodles

  • have been cooked in very hot water and then immediately

  • cooled off so. that they separate and produce a spongey feel

  • This cheesy blinkin sign is to let people know that the store sells betel nut, a

  • mild intoxicant similar to having a can of beer.

  • It gives you a bit of a buzz it doesn't have any tobacco it in. But you bite it...

  • at the top

  • spit it in the cup.

  • You chew it for a while.

  • It doesn't taste...it doesn't taste very good.

  • Bitter... bitter.

  • It tastes like a bitter plant.

  • Taxi drivers and bus drivers, who are really into this. And you'll find it in

  • like India or Burma...

  • You see these red stains everywhere. Eventually, if you eat enough if it

  • It can stain your teeth. And give you oral cancer.

  • It's supposed to give you this..

  • feeling that's equivalent to a can of beer.

  • Yeah I think I'm starting to feel a little heady.

  • A little light-headed.

  • It's...

  • ... a little short of breath.

  • Very relaxied. I'm starting to feel relaxed.

  • I've always been kind of curious but afraid

  • of trying it.

  • On a food tour though...

  • You know you're at least under guided wing, trying this!

  • Here I am at Bei Min Fong Lin Bin. I really had to go slowly there. Bin is ice and this place is known

  • for their sorbet. They make their sorbet daily, fresh. It's made through water and sugar and

  • it's churned and churned and churned until they get the texture and flavor

  • just right and if they don't have the texture right or the flavor

  • right and they toss it out and they start all over again.

  • She's just packing it in. Packing it. So i ordered the salted plum sorbet with the pineapple.

  • One of the popular flavors here are like taro, mung bean, dragon eye,

  • pineapple... these are all the flavors that you do not suspect sorbet to come in.

  • A perfect ending to my day is found in a teaspoon.

  • What do you feel is distinct about Taiwanese food that's different from anywhere else in the world?

  • Probably that we don't have a big dish, like a national dish. We have a lot of small dishes.

  • A lot of street snacks. Do you feel like there's any kind

  • of distinct thing... - Probably just the variety of food.

  • Variety of foods. Okay.

  • And Jean was right, variety it is! Taipei has several night markets which showcase

  • endless varieties of food and street snacks. So I'm at Raohe Night Market . It's New Year's Eve

  • These streets are packed.

  • You see like the tables and chairs set up in the middle of the street

  • It''s a huge food night market . The foods that you'll find here,

  • are kinda what's in vogue in Taipei. Each hawker has their own type of style.. their own

  • sauces as well as, flavors.

  • Sometimes they prepare it just a little differently.

  • There's a general rule of thumb when you eat. When you're in Taiwan, when you see a crowd,..

  • It means that the food there is really good.

  • Taiwan is the home of bubble tea, a drink loved by Taiwanese and travelers alike.

  • This milky tea was originally designed with tapioca balls so that you could

  • chew your drink.

  • It's Xiao Long Bao

  • in China. And it's Tang Bao. She's calling it Tang, which is soup

  • Bao, which is .. you know..

  • a bao, dumping!

  • So there's soup inside here. -Yeah, so a little bit of ginger and then this soup

  • this other sauce in here and now

  • I like the vinegar , soy sauce. See inside there's like that's all soup.

  • ok

  • But it's hot. I always burn myself when I eat it. I want to call these like

  • tako balls.

  • They're like squid

  • in like little balls. Deep fried.

  • Holy cow. These are amazing! Wow you can taste the garlic! Ooh.

  • these are amazing ! Try it Sharon.

  • This is like the snack of the Century for me.

  • Taipei has a handful of night markets for those who want to shop and eat on

  • the streets at night.

  • One of my favorite markets is Shilin night market, a healthy dose of Taiwanese

  • drinks, jellies, ... dessert snacks... and Taiwanese delicacies.

  • It tastes like regular egg. - It's just tinier?

  • The sauce is what makes the flavor.

  • For 30NT dollars I got these candied tomato

  • plums.

  • Tomatoes. I didn't know you could candy them.

  • Wow these are really good! There's a hard candy coating on the outside of

  • that crunches when you bite into it and I can taste plum. It's like a lee hing plum.

  • I want to say. Tomato...

  • acidic...very sweet, ...

  • and plummy taste. I wish we had these at home.

  • Wherever home is when I travel.

  • It's like a deep-fried squid. It's got garlic and cilantro in it.

  • It looks really

  • soft when he was cutting into it.

  • it was really kind of soft right? Do you feel like it's buttery?

  • It's not overcooked that's for sure. He cooked it just right.

  • The cilantro really nails it in.

  • and the garlic chunks, it's kind of raw garlic... i love raw garlic.

  • All that just seals the flavor in.

  • So this is Mien Shen? And it has...

  • Oysters, this is fishcake, and then there's these noodle things, and then chinese parsley.

  • And then they put vinegar in there. Mien is like noodle and Shien

  • is string. This is a favorite dish in Taiwan.

  • So this is really gooey and almost hard to get the noodles on the spoon.

  • I taste fish flakes.

  • Bonito. That's exactly what I tasted.

  • and then you can add more garlic or you can add more vinegar if you want to.

  • So it's an interesting flavor. - It is an interesting flavor and this because of noodles are

  • very gooey and with the broth it's kind of pastey.

  • Yeah I know it's like thick. Yeah it's not a soup, it's not a broth, it's like a thick...

  • (fish face)

  • I like the Chinese parsley..or the cilantro.

  • That's exactly what I like that I taste. I feel like it

  • can really fill you up. - Yeah, that's probably why it's cheap and filling!

  • That's it. So I got some Chi Dan Gao.

  • which is this mini bread cupcake . Kinda tastes like a little bit of an egg sweet bread.

  • The prepares it like fresh. Hot. He just makes it right there in front of your eyes.

  • And heats it up.

  • These can be pretty addictive too.

  • Thanks for joining me. If you enjoyed this video then give me a thumbs up or like.

  • travel safe , smart and fun and may the GRRR be with you .

  • I feel a little buzzed right now actually.

  • That wasn't even five minutes.
