For those that know me personally, you know I am obsessed with street food culture. Actually my dream one day is to own a food truck, but it’s just a dream at the moment. On a recent trip back home to my birthplace in Taipei my Mom took me on a journey of nostalgic flavors that we both experienced as a child. This was exciting because I had not visited Taiwan in nearly a decade.
We made our way to Keelung, which is just a half an hour’s drive away northeast from the city center of Taipei. My mom told me “Keelung” is phonetically and roughly translated to “chicken cage” because it’s known for being a very crowded part of the city to live in. As crowded as it may still be, it’s very lively at night (like most of Taipei).
Rather than taking photos of the food I ate, I decided to share some food carts we ate around:
I’ll make sure not to wait so long again until my next visit!
