Taiwan Taichung Food Vegetarian

21 March 2014

Superpowers

My beef noodle soup and chilli overdose from lunch had left me with super powers.
This has happened before. They must put something in this soup. Its probably illegal in Australia. I want more of it.
This meant I didnt have time to take boring photos, I was too busy charging about like a lunatic.
Tomorrow I go to Taipei, I have been there twice before, which obviously means I must like it.
Taichung is not a top tourist destination. The ladder climbing was excellent, and I suspect theres plenty more hills to climb, but getting to them or anywhere is a struggle!
The city itself has no real centres, which is unusual. The photos below show an area which could be the new centre, but it was a ghost town, I am not sure if anyones moved in yet.
They are building a bus rapid transit system, which if it works as advertised should help things. It is unacceptable for it to take over an hour to travel 8km outside of peak hour.
The night market is what most people who come here rave about. The atmosphere is great but most of the food is deep fried, and finding somewhere to safely eat anything would be a challenge. But going just to people watch is fun.
I think the only other westerner I saw stood out even more than me. I saw him this evening in a fur coat, walking 6 matching tiny white dogs, singing loudly, that Katy Perry song where shes naked on the pink cloud and Snoop Dogg appears for no good reason.

My dinner came from a Japanese chain, yes Japanese again, called Ootoya. They have outlets all over the world.
I made an exception to my no more Japanese food on this trip rule because the sign showed this, and its vegetarian and looks great.
It was indeed, excellent. I want to have it again.
