Meals featured: Sashimi; Fish Hot Pot
Our friend Michael Turton came up to see us again this weekend, and we decided to take a trip up to the Yong An fishing port! Its a great place to walk around and see all the activity both inside and outside the port.
Once inside, you find the first section: restaurants. There are quite a few restaurants, and more of them feature the typical pushy Taiwanese hard selling person in the front. Annoying and insulting to Westerners, they say the same crap at every restaurant: “The food here is so good!
Everything is fresh!” etc., and then try to draw your attention to the menu. The truth is, I never go into a place with a hard seller because I do not want to reinforce their behavior. I don’t want
them to think that my decision to eat there was based on their “selling” technique! Turns out that Michael feels the same way. On this side, the restaurant people were a lot less aggressive.
Next, we went into the “fresh fish area” as its called in Chinese. This is the actual fish market building.
More fish than you could ever imagine….
We couldn’t have gone all day in a fish market without buying something! We got some sashimi from one of the many vendors, and took it outside to eat. Excellent!
We hope you enjoyed reading about our visit to Yong An Fishing Port as much as we enjoyed going there!
