Taiwan Trip 1
Taipei 101: Was the tallest building in the world up til a few months ago until Dubai took over
I'm finally back in L.A. where I can recap my past week of travels and it was definitely filled with some intense eating! Let's start! This was Day 1 of our Taiwan travels. Day 1 was spent entirely in the city of Taipei. Loads of fun. I haven't been in Taiwan for years.
But wait! The party didn't start in Taipei. The pre-party was in the VIP Lounge we got to stay in before our flight there even started! Check our the fish ball noodle soup and chicken with red rice on the right!
Everyone knows that when you go to Taiwan, you must visit the orginal Ding Tai Fung. I went last time I went to Taiwan and I just can't justify waiting in 2 1/2 hour lines. I present to you the amazing and better alternative:
Left is their melt in your mouth xiao long bao and right is their crispy sesame shallot bread. So good!! Especially that bread! Wow!
Left was our Pork gravy noodles. I seriously licked my bowl because it was so good. I think Right is their veggie dumplings. yum, yum, yum!
And for dessert- red dates stuffed with sticky rice! It was delicious! I'm drooling right now just thinking about it.
But as you should know by now... meals don't end just with dessert! There's always more! This was
