snapshot/taiwanese: home sweet home


When I fly into LAX and arrive late into the night, my ritual now includes picking up some rolled tacos aka taquitos, smothered in guacamole, before I head home.

When I fly in TPE and arrive early in the morning, the perfect place to head is to Yong He Dou Jiang (or your favorite local Taiwanese breakfast joint) for some freshly fried you tiao and cold, sweet soy milk, all for the ridiculous price of some pocket change. In this case with the dan bing or egg pancake, it was a grand total of NT$55 or under NT$2.

Home sweet home, Taipei!

Moved to a new place recently (near Shida) so don't know any Yonghe Doujiang here, but but at my last place there was one just on the corner, boy it was nice to hit it sometimes, either late at night or early in the morning...
