Okay, I admit it looks kind of gross in this picture, kind of leg-like and rubbery, but it actually tastes really good! Admittedly, I also think thousand year old egg and stinky tofu taste good, so go with that as your palate base.

You'll spot (or smell) this local snack favorite in night markets and all around Taipei, but this mall version should offer a clean variety for those of you afraid to buy off the street vendors. Just follow your nose towards the bbq roasting smell- one bag goes for about NT$100 and comes in original and spicy flavors.

Palate. Although I suppose a palette of stinky tofu and thousand-year eggs with sprinkled dried squid has a certain charm to it...

I like the ones on sticks the best. They fit nicely with my belief that everything served on a stick is good.
