snack/snapshot: i strongly recommend 7-11
Anyone who has wandered into a 7-11 in Taipei was probably immediately dazzled by the array of drinks, snacks, bentos, tea eggs and buns.
Not to mention the coffee and Icee machines.
Milk, juices, teas, jelly drinks, coffees, yogurt drinks. This doesn't even include the sodas and waters...
7-11 should just be called snack heaven.
Strawberry flavored items collected for your perusal....
Crispy, salty, crunchy Asian snacks...
Or Western chips like Lays or Doritos with Asian flavors like bbq seafood or seaweed....
I have yet to try their thousand year old egg with congee or braised pork bentos, but their rice triangles are pretty decent in a pinch. The way they wrap it separates the seaweed from the rice and keeps it crispy until you wrap it yourself.
Instant noodles that come in their own styrofoam bowls- a starving student's dream selection.
Sometimes they have sticker promotions where you get a sticker for spending a certain amount (usually around NT$70) by a certain time and then if you collect enough stickers you can get a prize or coupon for free Coldstones or something like that.
If I ever run out of restaurants to eat at, I'll start a 7-11 Taipei Snack Heaven blog and feature an item a day. That would be hilarious.
