Sausage, egg, and cheese is such a winning combo, especially when Lon makes the #breakfastsauage from scratch! Even though I’m the main chef in this house, Lon can hold down the fort! #thankful #blessed . . . . . . #sausage #eggs #cheese #sandwich #breakfastsandwich #brekkie #breakfast #homecooking #homemade #instayum #instafood #eatrealfood #eathealthy

Every winter, I dream of tropical vacations. I’m not even really a beach girl but when I’m freezing, I could totally imagine myself with a Mojito, this dish, and the sound of crashing waves.

The simple little dishes all over the streets of #taiwan sold in tiny shops or street stands… They are equivalent to $1 or $2 a bowl/plate. I love the nicer restaurants here but also the low end and everything in between! I’m leaving tomorrow and the sadness is setting in… . . . . . . . #taiwanesefood #cheapeats #lurofan #tofu #taipei #instayum #instafood #eatrealfood #eattheworld #travelforfood #pork #meifun

The #bao place I posted about earlier always has a long line. It’s location is definitely better being steps from the MRT…but this one is just around the corner on a side street and doesn’t ever have a long line (but does have a steady stream of customers). We investigated and found that it’s just as good and the buns are 1 NT less which is negligible. Lon likes the #pork #buns here more, while I like the pork buns at the other place more but all the other flavors are a toss up. The #chive ones have dried shrimp in the other one and this one has some ground pork but both are delish. Both have a ton of flavors like snow cabbage, #cabbage, #bamboo, #mushroom … . . . . . . . #chinesefood #breakfast #chinesebuns #taipei #taiwan #instayum #instafood #streetfood #travelforfood #eattheworld #eatrealfood #eathealthy

We’re outside of the city today and had a really nice local lunch. The restaurant looks very gimmicky with a toy/candy store in front (they also gave kids small toys for dining) and antiques decorate the whole space. The food is good though, country home-style, and very inexpensive. The fried #oysters and the ground #pork with century egg were the favorites! http://www.eland-chun.com.tw/ . . . . . . #taiwan #taiwanesefood #chinesefood #travelforfood #instayum #instafood #fish #soup #cucumbers #cabbage #squid #basil

The seafood here is SO fresh and cooked perfectly! You pick out what you want by the tanks and ice beds (picture in stories). We don’t have the same #fish in the US! Thanks to Monica for recommending this restaurant to us! . . . . . . #taipei #taiwan #chinesefood #seafood #softshellcrab #abalone #shrimp #instayum #instafood #eatrealfood #eathealthy #travelforfood

Just some of my favorite dishes after 2 visits: The #shrimp and #tofu with #spinach sauce is my absolute favorite (and Caya’s)! I could eat this every day. The thinly sliced #beef and #scallion in the upper left corner was a close second and it was Lon’s favorite. Remi’s is the #beancurd and #woodear in the lower left and the crispy skin #chicken . My mom’s is the cold mung bean #noodles ( #handmade ) with #cucumbers in the lower right. My dad’s is the beef #soup with bean thread and ga da (it’s similar to speatzle but hand made) in the upper right). Everyone loved the fried little #fish and #fried #string beans too. This is my dad’s cousin, Frank’s, restaurant who is now sharing the reins with his son Alan. They have won countless honors and awards and are frequented by celebrities and famous politicians. It’s because many dishes are unique to this restaurant. Thank you to Frank and Betsy, Alan and Angel (plus their kids Melody and Charlene) for hosting us so well and feeding us twice! We are so grateful! . . . . . . #taipei #taiwan #chinesefood #travelforfood #eatrealfood #eathealthy #instayum #instafood #restaurant #foodmayhemfave

Thank you to Uncle Richard (my dad’s lifelong friend) for taking us to have such a nice lunch! The local crab (a type we don’t have in the states) was the star of the meal with so much chili garlic flavor and that texture! The scallion puff was flaky and layered just the way I like it. This restaurant hand makes rice rolls and the bounciness is perfect. The steamed fish was no doubt freshly killed right before hitting the table. Then, they take the seasoned juices from the steamed fish and make scrambled eggs with it! I am now always going to do that at home! . . . . . . . #taipei #taiwan #cantonesefood #seafood #fish #crab #livefish #liveseafood #turnipcake #riceroll #shrimp #snowpealeaves #chicken #scrambledeggs #egg #instayum #instafood #eatrealfood #chinesefood

Thanks to Bill and Kang for taking us to Hunan 1010! Loved the chili #fish head and the cumin #ribs. I even really liked the #stinkytofu and intestines. . . . . . . . #taipei #taiwan #hunanfood #chinesefood

I actually find the service more impressive than the food. Don’t get me wrong. It’s good but it’s hard to live up to the level of hype surrounding this place. It is way better than the two in California though. Watch them make the soup dumplings in stories! (We had the classic pork, chicken, and the shrimp and silk squash.) . . . . . . . #taipei #taipei101 #taiwan #chinesefood #soupdumplings #shumai #dumplings #shrimp #pork #cucumber #friedrice #travel
