Taiwan Trip Continued... Back to Taipei from Taichung
(Old School grinder and door)
So at this point we were back in Taipei meaning that Grandma could finally have her "real" Taiwanese food. Whatever that actually means. SO we pull up to eat her favorite Chi Chia Chuang. Our car door opens and literally the people inside run out and yell/greet my Grandma by name. Seriously... I guess Grandma left them with a really good impression or something cause the last time she was there was over 10 years ago.
Left is sweet potato porridge and right is the 3 different types of chicken. You can't see the black chicken from this angle. Darn.
Left is another order of veggies with those little fish thingys. You should all know by now how Grandma take her veggies seriously. Right is my favorite fried pork intestine. yay
Left is what sweet and sour pork is actually supposed to look like. Take note Panda Express! And right is our yummy order of eggplant. Delicious!
And of course Grandma needed more veggies. Left is digua ye & right is some pork leg.
And to end off our meal... ta da!!!! Flan. The mother was raving about how this place had amazing flan. Yeah... it was good flan for a Taiwanese place but has she never had bomb Vietnamese/French Flan? Orange County or Vietnam will also do the trick.
So after this delicious meal... we had an amazing dinner at a very expensive and authentic Japanese restaurant that is very close to Taipei 101 called Peony aka
