This weekend we headed to Tainan for a food tour with a group of Youming’s friends. They planned the trip for us; Tainan is considered a food center of Taiwan, and so we spent the day sampling some of the more famous dishes around the city.
As Youming said at the start of the day as we rode an early morning train, “The purpose of today is eating.”
It was a roasting hot day, so after renting scooters for the day (to the tune of about $4), we picked up some ice cold winter melon tea. Extraordinarily sweet, but exactly what you need to remedy the island heat, it was a good start.
