Exploring Food All Over Taiwan!


This week, I spent time traveling with friends around Taipei. Taipei is a huge city and has so many great places to visit. This also means there are so many food options here! In Taipei, a traditional dish is beef noodle soup, which you can find in many restaurants and markets. Taiwanese fried chicken is also very popular! I think it's a little bit different from American fried chicken because it is usually crunchier and has more flavor. There are many more famous dishes as well, which I will talk about more below.

The most famous dish in Taiwan is called "stinky tofu". It's called that because it really is stinky! I can smell it on the street from over a block away. The smell is very strong and I don't know how to describe it well. Some people say it smells like smelly feet. A lot of people here really like to eat it! Yes, I've tried it, and I'll tell you all about it... keep reading!

In Taipei, you can also find food from all over the world! I've found Japanese food (like sushi!), Indian food and even Italian food! There are also a lot of American restaurants here. Taiwan has a lot of McDonald's and KFC restaurants here! I've also seen Subway, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut a few times. I usually don't eat these fast food places when I'm here, but I think it's interesting to see them here!
