This is their menu where you place your order by putting the quantity you want next to the item you like, then you bring it to the counter, pay and wait for your meal to be sent to your table.

    • Thanks for dropping in my blog. Yup, love the coffin bread in Anping Street and the rest of the other food and snacks there.

      Yup I did enjoy my visit to Tainan. It was more of a eating trip. haha!!! Each 50m was a stop-buy kind of thing. Had to literally skip my lunch and dinner with all the stops. lol!!!

      • Lol all my visits to Taiwan are pretty much eating trips, and I’m not too familiar with Tainan, but the last time I went was pretty much a food fest too and all my parents have to say about Tainan is its abundance of little things to eat lol. What’s your next stop?

        • Yup. Totally agree with you. Taiwan is more like a Food Fiesta Stop. It’s all about eating and more eating. LOL!! My next stop will be Japan; Osaka,Kyoto later end of this year. Cant wait for this trip. Still ironing out my itinerary. Any ideas?

          • Haha, I have friends who grew up here and have never seen the major sights, but have been to every night market within their neighborhood and know all the good spots to eat. The last time I was in Japan, I was 6 and was more interested in going to Disneyland than anything else! I hear those are beautiful cities to visit and more nature-esque than Tokyo.

          • Yup. Guess once you are a local in yr own country/town, you will only visit places nearby but once you are outside in another country, you will explore more and everywhere if possivle.
            All kids love Disneyland and maybe too young to enjoys sight seeing. When one grows older, the focus shifts from child fun to enjoyment of surrounding, history and not forgetting the most important thing, FOOD!!! haha.
