Taiwan Tiger--next time you go to this restaurant, I REALLY want to go with you. The comedy alone is worth the price of the food! Sounds like good cheap entertainment to me. And afterward, we can go get some real food somewhere else :)


Hi, I was an expat living in Tainan for a couple of years working construction. At the "east gate" of Tainan, I was driving my scooter wandering around on a sunday, when I saw a sign, tucked in among all the cell phone stores and stuff, "chimichangas". I couldn't believe it! Now at this point, I was reduced to raiding the 7-11's for their packets of yellow mustard, just for a taste of something familiar. I felt like a crack head, sucking on my fix of "yellow mustard". Well, I decided to try these chimi's, they were made of a pastry similar to won ton skins, beans and HUGE chunks of onion! Well, what the heck, it wasn't El Torito's or even remotely mexican but for a small burg at Tainan, it was heaven. I spread the word to all the expats in the area and sooner or later, you'd run across quite a few expats there. I have eaten at Smokey Joe's and considering where it is in the world, its like my high class friend, that looks like Cartman always says, "It'll make a turd", lol, we used to make the trek down to Kaohsiung maybe once a month or so. After a pitcher of Margaritas, anything tastes good.

    This blog stands against the fictitious law passed in March 2005 by the P.R.C. proposing that unification is Taiwan's legal and moral duty, even to the point of the P.R.C. using force to uphold that fiction. TaiwanTiger ascribes to the statement of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council that:

    "The Republic of China is an independent and sovereign nation and its sovereignty rests in the hands of the twenty-three million Taiwanese people. Only the twenty-three million Taiwanese people have the right to make the final decision on any change to the nation's status and future."

Taiwanese Food

  • Ai Yu 愛玉 3
    So, this seems kind of crazy, but hey we all love to eat, right? In Taiwan, it's considered a hobby. When you go on a trip, you need to stop at such and such town for their great ______. Noodles, shrimp rolls, chicken thighs, soup, whatever. Everyplace seems famous for some addition to the Taiwanese culinary tradition. So here I am attempting to document some of the traditions of eating, the places to go, and the food itself. This will be a difficult and slow moving project, because I feel really strange photographing food in the presence of other diners, especially when I have to stand on a chair to get it all in.
