Menu? Easy. If you do not read Chinese. Just point at the photos when you order. haha… that’s what I did. =)

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.

and this one, it is one of the famous snacks in Tainan. It is called the coffin bread. Why you may ask? Well.. they will cut an opening in the middle of the thick toasted bread and then put in chicken soup in the middle and then cover it back with the piece that they have cut earlier. So, it does look like a coffin but it is square in shape. You will see a more clearer one in my coming posting.
