Yuanxiao vs. Tangyuan

posted in: food, taipei 0

Check out these *fried* yuanxiao! Apparently yuanxiao (元宵) are made by rolling in glutinous rice flour with large, flat woven baskets – instead of merely wrapping the filling with a dough, as tangyuan (湯圓) are.

But tell me, would you be able to taste the difference? 🤔 #元宵節

They were literally distributing pallets of bokchoy (白菜) at Taipei City Hall today. Is this the hot new thing people are group-buying now?

With the weather cooling down, I wonder if this is my last shaved ice of the season. My fav this year has been the Very Berry at Snow Bro. Not very traditional, but sooo tasty – love how creamy their milk-based ice is! #shavedice #雪花冰 #taipeifood #Taipei

Quite like this chili sauce by 蘭芳, featuring lots of sichuan pepper! 200 NTD per jar. #麻辣 #花椒 #sichuanpepper #numbnessandtingling

Oh, and here are the noodles I had at the restaurant:

Not bad, but we really came to try the 涼皮, but they were all out. 🙁
