Taipei Trip 10 Sept 06 til 15 Sept 06: Day 2
The next day, we woke up feeling fresh and ready to explore the city. The breakfast provided by the hotel is very basic, therefore we chose to head out straight for local breakfast, which is the famous YongHe soyabean 永和豆浆。
Me and my sis at LRT station
The shop is quite close to the LRT station. After we arrived at Dingxi station 顶溪站，we proceeded to looking for the shop. After walking for merely 10mins, we managed to locate the shop. Maybe because its a Monday morning, there isn't many customers in the shop. We ordered a mixture of food there, but most importantly, one shouldn't miss its famous soya bean and yau char kuai.
The soya bean is very thick, those that full of yellow beans smell...i love it but my sister don't really fancy it :P
The yau char kuai is really thin n crispy, it is indeed a very nice combination to have for your breakfast. Miss that!!!
Some other food on offer there..i like the one with vege inside..!
After a full and fulfilling breakfast, we proceed to Jiufen九份, a fairly famous tourist spot. It is a town on a mountain. It has very nice scenery.
Jiufen is also very famous for its narrow street selling various local foods.
Famous pineapple and sun 太阳biscuits..love it!
Cute Jelly and Squid sausage...
Nice and Super big fishball
Overall, i personally think its worth going to JiuFen, at least i enjoyed myself there. However the whole journey from Taipei to JiuFen takes about 1.5 hours by bus one way..
After JiuFen, we went to Shi Lin Market 士林夜市 although we weren't really hungry yet! :P Shi Lin Market is also another tourist spot, a MUST GO to taste all the famous local food!
Shi Lin Market
Famous chicken chop, look at the Q..
One of the many stalls selling fried oyster with egg, O Jian!
Mango Ice...highly recommended, it will melt immediately you put in your mouth! Saliva dropping again!
At first i thought that Shi Lin Market only sells food, but who knows there's so many shop around the market selling clothes, accessories etc.
One of the very nicely decorated shoe shop we went to. Nice right!
Hello Kitty organizers!
After walking around the market, we felt exhausted and went back to the hotel...
