Food in Taiwan

First, I have a shameful confession.  I did not go to a Taiwanese night market.  It rained everyday on my short trip to Taiwan and I did not venture out in the evening after being in the rain all day.  The only excuse I have is there was a typhoon while I was there.

That just means I will have to go back and head straight to a night market.

I didn’t get pictures of every milk and bubble tea I drank, just know there were many.

Taiwan is famous for beef noodles, oysters in everything, bubble tea, and a wide variety of Chinese cuisines.  Taiwan was colonized Japan from 1895 to 1945 and I could see the influence.  There were just as many sushi and ramen joints as there were Chinese joints.

A carton of milk tea was 50 cents, but in Korea that would be about 2 bucks.  They love the milk tea in Taiwan!
