Taiwan (Day 9): Taiwan revisited

First stop: Picking up Sun cakes!

Typical day with my uncle’s family: another day consisting of going to different places just to eat yummy food :).

Second Stop: Mao Gao sausages! Taiwanese sausages are one of my favorite things to eat in Taiwan because they are so flavorful. I learned the best way to eat Taiwanese sausage was to take a bite of the sausage then take a bite of raw garlic. I’m converted!

This little sausage stand is famous because they offer a variety of unique Taiwanese sausages, such as cuttlefish sausage, lavender sausage, and one with alcohol in it!

Third stop: Getting our stinky tofu on! Stinky tofu, another authentic Taiwanese dish, can be hit or miss depending on the place that makes it. Many people can’t even stand the smell of it, but people who like it really love it. I used to hate the smell, but now the smell doesn’t bother me at all.
