Taiwan Eats: Tamsui Old Street

Whenever I hear a place being referred to as "old street" in Taiwan, I can't help thinking about food. Because there will be a lot of good food found in the midst of the old street. And it's not different here, at Tamsui Old Street. Nom! Eh, I mean Jump!

If we are going by the rule "join the queue"...oh heck, I'm gonna join the queue simply because I'm curious. Hahaha.

Turns out it's gyoza-look-alike stall. Haha. Taste-wise? So-so I suppose. Time to move to next food.

Another long queue spotted, just few metres away from the fried gyoza stall. O_o!

I saw this on TV but they sell the sponge cake in a big box. I gave it a pass cause I live alone but they look really good actually. If you have a lot of mouths to share, you can give it a try. Hehe.

Along the old street, you will see a lot of black eggs. These are called iron eggs (鐵蛋/ tiědàn). The eggs were cooked and recooked in soy sauce broth. When they are eventually air-dried, the eggs become dark and flavorful. These are famous snacks sold in Tamsui (and Taiwan in general I suppose).

Old street really gives out a "fun" vibe especially with a lot of stuff to eat and buy. So happy there are still a lot of old streets in Taiwan. =)
