It’s been a while, but I am back and ready to blog about all these food journeys that I’ve gone through in the past 3 months! Â I’ve been working on lots of food pictures so there will be more posts to come (woo hoo!). Â Anyway, in December I went to Taiwan, one of the best places to eat-your-heart-out, and I felt like I was home; all I did was eat, shop, and eat some more. Â You’ll see what I mean with my pictures.
One of the places I must talk about is å¤©ç„¶ç´…è±†è…,Â where I ate one of the best minced pork rice (æ»·è‚‰é£¯) in my life. Â The rice glistened as it was topped with marinated minced pork belly. Â Not only did it have the perfect ratio of meat to fat, but it was perfectly salty and the red bits on the side gave it a slightly sweet flavor. Â I quickly gobbled up my bowl and wished I had some more. Delicious.
They are also known for their pork blood soup (è±¬è¡€æ¹¯). Â Texture-wise it is not like anything you can get in New York; the pig’s blood pieces were soft and tender, paired with a clear soup that was seasoned with scallion made the soup easy to finish.
For those who are thinking about taking a trip to Taiwan, this is definitely a place I would recommend you go to for minced pork rice and pork blood soup. Â You will not be disappointed. Â In fact, you will want to bring friends and spread the joy of minced pork!
