We went back to the first soy milk place because it was so yummy. This time we got a cold unsweetened soy milk, hot savory soy milk with egg, pancake with egg, and xiao long bao. The xiao long bao is also delicious - good flavors and broth, not greasy.
Auntie Pang took us on a U-bike tour all around Taipei. We hit so many sights. It was fun seeing the city on a bike. The weather was awesome too - we were lucky (it was raining the day before and the day after).
Starting at DaAn Park on Xinyi Road
World Trade Center
Shopping district in Xinyi district
Sun yat sen memorial hall
Songshan Cultural and Creative Park
We had wonton soup, bbq pork and chicken noodle soup, and steamed spareribs rice for lunch.
Continued on with the bike tour after finding another bike station since the first kiosk didn't work.
Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall
Taipei main station
National Taiwan University
By now the sun was starting to set. We were biking along the coast in the riverside park.
Pap Ma Ding park
Bopiliao historical street
We had squid soup, fish soup, rice vermicelli, braised pork over rice, tempura, and blanched veggies. Very typical Taiwanese street food.
We walked through the Wan Hua night market and Hua Xi street. We saw many shops with snakes.
Auntie introduced us to try a juice made with a plant. 青草茶. It was made with mint and grass jelly. We bought some to bring home.
All the restaurants that auntie took us to were founded since 1920 or 1921. We got the "8 treasure" (八寶) shaved ice. Yum.
