sticky rice with meat and mushrooms
This winter I visited Taiwan. I'm not going to lie, a major reason was the food. I am seriously convinced that this is the best food in the world. (I may be biased.) There really is no comparison. Around every corner, there is a stand or a restaurant to be tasted. With so many choices, there are bound to be some really great foods. One of the things I love about Taiwanese food is that much of it is prepared by mom-and-pop shops. There are few chains; small businesses are king. I think there is something very special about a family-owned business that has spent years, maybe generations, perfecting one recipe.
But enough chatter, let's get to the first round of pics:
xiao long bao (soup dumplings)
fried agedashi tofu
