These pics are from a bakery, believe it or not! Nigiri cakes and beer mug jello, well I can (kind of) understand that… But on what occasion is it appropriate to serve a fish head cake?

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.

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
