For some simple Taiwanese street food, here’s a plate of dried tofu with chili sauce, garlic, and Chinese sauerkraut. At this joint, you serve yourself and in the end you pay for whatever is on the plate. The bright colours certainly stimulate the appetite, don’t they? 😉

I spent a winter term in Taiwan, which meant that Chinese new year that year was spent in Hsinchu. I think it was the only time I spent Chinese new year in Asia since I immigrated to Canada…wow! Here a feast was undergoing preparation, and it was going to be a huge one!
