Taiwan’s famous street food and yummy desserts have found their way into the hearts (and stomachs!) of Malaysians. Here are some of Malaysians’ favourite Taiwanese eats that you might enjoy:
Braised Pork Rice (or Lurou Fan): A well-known dish amongst all Taiwanese, this humble meal consists of finely chopped fatty pork belly slow cooked in fragrant soy sauce and spices. The meat and the sauce are then spooned onto a hot, bed of fluffy, white rice. The perfect comfort food indeed!
Street food: Taiwan is known for its vibrant night markets and the assortment of amazing street food that comes with them! Crispy chicken, oyster mee sua (or oyster vermicelli), and sweet potato fries with plum powder are some of the common sights found in the night markets of Taiwan and it’s no surprise to see locals and tourists enthusiastically digging into them.
Desserts: When we mention Taiwan, how can we not include its delicious desserts? Arguably the most popular trend from Taiwan right now, the bubble tea craze in Malaysia is thriving as our locals endure long queues just to buy their favourite drinks. Let’s not forget that grass jelly desserts, with their combination of hearty ingredients and varied textures, have a loyal following too!
