    Enlightened by the eel. Love em myself. About the Lamb. My family is from a lamb based culture. We just salted them up threw them on the spit. What people call gamey is the character of that meat. You can either eat bland all your life or immerse your self in the flavors. Mikey knows what I mean.

    Dan Zai mien is usually not that rich in flavor. The braised minced pork is its main flavor source. It's more like eating a sense of nostalgia more than its taste. It's usually smaller in portion and a bit higher in price.

    A local Taiwanese, and a little late to the party here, but Mike - I recommend you to try turkey on rice in Chiayi. They were originated from there and every single stand/restaurant that serves it in Chiayi is just mind-blowing. I dont wanna say that the turkey rice in Tainan is bad, there are plenty of good ones out there too, but trust me, the ones in Chiayi are way more delicious and they have absolutely different taste than the one you ate. Nice video as always! Thx for the vid and hope you come visit Taiwan again in the near future. There're so many different types of food you can enjoy here!

    Grape ice cream?!?

  30. Dai Young

    Dai Young3 หลายเดือนก่อน

    I would say that they are more like grape sorbets. They dont have that sort of a buttery-vibe in them but instead they have some sort of a refreshing flavour. Try to imagine you put semi-condensed grape juice into borderline-frozen-state. Doesnt melt watery like ice but also not buttery like ice cream, kind of an in-between yet pack a strong-fruity-punch. That's how they taste like!

    Did you by any chance get to eat the Milk Fish skin? It is one of the best tasting parts of the fish...but then again they might have not descaled the fish because it's grilled. But you should definitely try the milk fish descaled and fried with the skin..seasoned with just salt and pepper...and make sure the skin is's like eating thin pieces of crackling heaven.

    Dai Young3 หลายเดือนก่อน

    _-ginger syrup-_ brown sugar syrup. Yup, the whole thing is more like a dessert, and it's cold and refreshing. I dont wanna use the word Tofu here, because even tofu will be too hard when comparing to that dessert. The texture of it is more like a tofu-pudding, and it's really that soft, you can barely feel it when you put it into your mouth, yet it's quite healthy cause they are made from soy beans. One of my fav gourmet in Taiwan!

    Dan zai noodles actually come in dry form, which in my opinion tastes a lot better. The soup tends to wash away the taste. But being from Tainan, I confess that this is not my favorite. My preference is 意麵 and milk fish. Also the brown 碗粿。In my family we serve two milk fish for lunch everyday, and I’ve never grown sick of it, ever.

    Mikey, I'm so glad you came to visit my hometown. You must have done some decent research, or some local citizens must have been your guides to show you all these places where I actually dine regularly. These places are no random food stands or restaurants. Too bad you missed the beaf-soup breakfast. You'll definitely have to sample it next time when you come to visit here again. BTW, please do put Tainan on your wish list of moving to and getting settled in Taiwan.

    milkfish is phillippines(my country) national fish.its a really delicious but super bony fish so when u got a boneless type of that usually the price tends to get much expensive considering the job to remove all of the bones.

    Went to the eel place after seeing this video and I would say the dry one tastes better than the wet one. The wet one is more sweet and peppery but a little too sweet so try the dry one guys! Would rate 8/10. The noodles were too soggy for my liking and it tastes like a better instant ramen but the eel and sauce is amazing. Btw the noodles were 90/120 ntd so it's not $7. It's $3-4 depending on which you get.
