If you’ve heard anything about Taiwan, it’s probably something or other about it’s food. Let’s admit it… Taipei 101 was soon left in the dust as the world’s tallest building almost as soon as it became known. But, there is a ton of food in this small country. I’m going to start with Hsinchu’s Cheng Huang (City God) Temple Night Market – 城隍廟夜市!

Aiyaiyai – it has been several months since I’ve posted. I apologize. I’m going to blame the usual life-gets-busy excuses: travel, school, work, laziness, etc. But here’s a taste of one of those excuses!
Over the winter holidays, I spent a little over 3 weeks in Taiwan and Korea, mostly Taiwan for family stuff…. and eating.
Huashan Market – home of Fu Hang Dou Jiang 阜杭豆漿. Have you ever heard of this place? Neither have I. Have you ever been to this place? Neither had I until my most recent trip to Taiwan!! Damn, it is delicious.

As with any trip to the Los Angeles area, I always make my friend, Brooke, dine with me. Utah is limited in its culturally diverse dining… So, based on recommendations, I forced Brooke (mostly by guilt) to bear the waitlist at Boiling Point – Gardena location.
Lam Zhou hand-pulled noodles in New York. I love noodles! I love hand-pulled noodles! And I totally want to learn… how to pull noodles. *mimics hand-pulled noodling gesture*
It’s a total hole-in-the-wall that’s sort of become infamous (at least, it seems that way). Verdict – cheap, awesome noodles. The soup and stuff are average but the noodles are great – very “QQ.” Can’t beat that for five bucks in NYC! Awesome lunch in Chinatown.
Anyone that vacations with me knows that I try to pack as many food highlights as possible… New York City was definitely no exception.
After watching Fuerzabruta at the Daryl Roth Theatre near Union Square, we begun Melani’s downward food spiral. She was eating healthy, proportionate meals at regular times of the day until I came to stay with her in NYC. Muwahahaha.

As the weather (seemed) to be improving, many weeks ago I changed out the belt on my scooter on advice from my scooter guy. I also ordered a new gasket that I’d change while I was in there. Here’s a quick guide on the steps – photos taken just for y’all. *Aww*

Brian had found this so-called tapioca heaven long before I visited during my birthday trip. First day in San Francisco, he took me up to the Richmond area to experience this long awaited bubble journey.
