Taiwanese food at Sitou Mountain
This is my favorite restaurant on the trip so far. It was near Sitou Mountain. Went here after hiking for a day. It was dope family style Taiwanese food. If I had to compare it, I would say it is like the Taiwanese Kenka on St. Mark's in terms of style, but more bigger plates to share. A lot of good drinking food but not street food more family style. I'm a dumbass and didn't get the name. I actually don't like taking photos but you gotta when eating in Taiwan.
Sticky rice in bamboo.
Cabbage with garlic bits
Sweet & Sour Carp was the shit! I haven't had a sweet and sour fish this big before. Usually in America you get a small river fish or flounder, etc. This was really dope and the fresh water fish was good. Lots of little bones, but more flavor.
Bai Chia Ji (again, my pinyin sucks, feel free to correct) - white chopped chicken. traditional dish, but done really well. This was a free range chicken, which is normal in Taiwan. It sucks that in America, we get charged an arm and a leg for free range, it should be the damn standard!
