Tainan Street Food 台南小吃

Would I revisit Tainan? Certainly. (1) For the Street Food and (2) Take the Tainan-Taitung scenic train ride.

At the railway station pick up a map (free) produced by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, and all the recommendations including locations are mentioned.

My personal favourites:
1. Mushroom Seafood rice 70NT
Where: 国华街
image

I was caught by the look of professionalism of this elderly gentleman hard at work. He told us that he doesn’t use any short-cut methods or ingredients, ie ajinomoto.

This shop is not mentioned in any guide but discovered by accident as I noticed the locals placing orders for takeover. I first tried his oyster omelette.

2. 蚵仔煎:(Oyster omelette) 60 NT
image

Big succulent oysters, fresh eggs and vegetables. Himself wanted to stay an extra day just to eat this again.

3. Mr Chou Prawn fritters
周氏虾卷
台南市中山路125之57號 (南方公園)
週一至周日 10:00-22:00

We had the braised pork over rice here and didn’t see the need to go elsewhere.

4. 洪祖師擔仔麵:台南市東區崇德路508巷12號,06- 0023 4001
Tainan noodles

Himself wasn’t impressed. I liked it but be warned that it’s now a franchise.

5. Beancurd:

修安

My favourite. How different is bean curd? Not just the multi variationsof topping such as yam and yam balls. But the black sugar treacle caramel. Just can’t find this anywhere else in Taipei. My Taipei friends have nor tried it either. Maybe it’s a recent invention as my query on 黑糖 drew puzzled looks. A 60 year old man told me to go go Okinawa which is famous for black sugar.

7) 啊堂鹹粥 Ah Tang porridge

No. 728, Section 1, Ximen Rd, 中西區台南市 Taiwan 700

Simply the best. We missed it on our first morning and only discovered it on second day thanks to Google map and taxi. It’s closed by 11am. On the day of departure before going to the train station we came at 8am. The porridge is grainy rice like not the mushy HK style. This is what I like with 黑目鱼or grey mullet.

8. 碗粿:Savory rice pudding (Wa gui)
富盛號:台南市中西區西門路2段333巷8號,06-2274101

    • It’s on 国华街3段, opposite of the 修安bean curd at #135. Sorry. I’ve thrown away all maps. You can get it from the Taiwan Tourism when you land at the Taoyuan airport
