Oyster Vermicelli (蚵仔麵線)

  • Oyster Vermicelli is a very delicious dish made by oyster and thin noodles, and also the dish which 100% represents Taiwan. 
  • It is a very popular Oyster Vermicelli (蚵仔麵線) restaurant in Taoyuan, founded for almost 30 years. Locals love it a lot. 
  • Not only Oyster Vermicelli, they provide any kinds of Taiwanese dishes, like Hakka Flat Rice Noodles, Soup Noodles, and plenty of Taiwanese side dishes.
  • Most importantly, the price is reasonable

Winter Favorite: Ginger Duck(薑母鴨)

  • Ginger duck(薑母鴨) is another popular and delicious dish in Taiwan. In it, we stew the duck soup with lots of gingers and a little cooking rice wine to make the soup more gingery and  flavorful. We also add vegetable in the soup, which can covered the flavor of wine and make the soup more sweet and smooth. The taste of stewed duck is tender and full of favor. 
  • Because Ginger Duck warm body up soon, people in Taiwan always eat it during the time when autumn turn to winter, in order to lower the probability to catch cough in winter.
  • Personally, it's my super super favorite and highly recommended!!

Desserts in locals' favorite lists

  • Want some souvenir? Don't hesitate to come these shops.
  • There are three old dessert shops, near Taoyuan Train Station, Nakasaki Hompo(中崎本舖), Golden City(金城囍餅), Chia-Le Cake(佳樂蛋糕).

  • Like we locals' childhood memory, on birthday, special festival or the day just missing their fabulous tastes, we will rush into these shops. Especially on the special day, like Moon Festival, we even need to line up and wait.
     
  • Nakasaki Hompo(中崎本舖) is famous for their unique traditional steamed cake, which taste smooth and chewy.
  • Golden City(金城囍餅) is famous for their Pineapple Cake, Yolk Pastry, which smell good and taste mildly sweet and softly crispy, and their sandwich, which looks quit simple but after first bite, you will fall in love in it.
  • Chia-Le Cake(佳樂蛋糕) is famous for their Boston Cream Pie, which taste extremely awesome. It must show up on my family's birthday.

Jing-Fu Temple (景福宮)

  • Jing-Fu Temple (景福宮) is the most important religious sites in Taoyuan. It was built in 1811(Qing Dynasty) in order to pray for the epidemic disease broken up in that time. 
  • It's located in the city center, and also one of the important landmark in Taoyuan. locals always call it "大廟"(Da-Miao), which means Biggest Temple.

  • You can comprehensively understand Taiwan's Temlpe Culture after my introduction and personally conducting the whole cult. 

High School in Taiwan

  • Have you ever seen Taiwanese Movie " Our times"? If you have, try to take a look at High School campus in Taiwan!! 

  • Here is my memories of 3-year high school time. I will share you my high school story, interesting activities of high school students in Taiwan, urban legend between students, and so on.
