Food and other photos by MJ Klein
It’s been awhile since we had an article featuring food and last weekend had a lot of it! So now we’re going to show you some of the dishes that we enjoyed! You have been warned!
Hui-chen and I met some geocachers in Taichung for an event. We’re Taiwanese so naturally the first thing on the agenda was lunch!
I grabbed a few shots of the dishes before they were all gone!
We (unsuccessfully) hunted a geocache in the pouring rain. After that he headed down to Kaohsiung to meet our family for dinner.
HC and her mom and dad, anxiously awaiting the dishes to come out of the kitchen. I white-balanced the D80 for the environment and did not use flash so I wouldn’t draw attention to my shooting.
Albert and Ping-chen with dad.
Dried tofu, cucumbers and cold noodles where the starters.
I ordered a pink sparkling wine. Although not as good as Moet (and more expensive actually) it went along well with the dishes.
Cold sesame noodles with a touch of wasabi. I’ve had sesame noodles before but not like this! Excellent version!
Enjoying the food!
Oxtail stew. This dish has some excellent beef fat pieces!
Mapo tofu. A hobby of mine is to try this dish everywhere that I can find it. Although not as good as some places, this dish was still very well prepared and tasty.
This is Crispy Duck, Northern Style and it was incredible!
The meat is sliced off and placed in these Chinese buns. This dish was a big hit!
We finished off the meal with Taiwan’s legendary Shark Fin Soup.
I got a few shots of the family after the meal. Here we see Hui-chen’s parents looking good!
Nothing beats good food, and good company!
