    I've not tried stinky tofu or pig blood cake, but my girlfriend has. I'm in China right now, by the way. Stinky tofu puts me off with its smell, but I'd like to try it someday. I can smell that tofu at least 20m away from the street vendors who sell it, seriously.

    All the others I have tried, and I like all of them - the only thing I don't really like are the pearls in milk tea. I love milk tea in general though, so I just ask for the tea without the pearls.

    Mini soup dumplings, braised pork rice and Taiwanese meatballs are all GORGEOUS. Especially the meatballs - the last time I tried those was in Shenzhen, and even though I live a stone's throw away from Taiwan, I haven't had them since. Thanks for the reminder, I'm going looking for some now.

    Mango shaved ice is my favourite summer craving. It's the best dessert I've tried short of chocolate fudge cake. It's extremely refreshing and great when there's a bit of milk or cream added too.

    A popular Taiwanese snack I also enjoy is Taiwanese pancake. Made from eggs and pancake mix, fried until solid, then whatever ingredients added inside - vegetables, chicken, etc. Great when I've missed lunch.

    Thank your reply and enjoy your food.

    I like Dong-Gua tea with milk...
    I don't know the name is right or wrong.
    It's really good to drink and you can't imagine how can dong-gua tea and milk match so well...

    The name is White Gourd Milk.
    This drink is famous in Taiwan.
    Thank your reply.

    None, but pig blood cake sounds, erm, lovely.

    Pork blood steamed with glutinous rice, known as pig blood cake.
    You can try it.

    Stinky tofu - No.
    Pig Blood cake - Yes.
    Oyster omelet - Yes.
    Mini soup dumplings - Yes.
    Braised pork rice - Yes.
    Taiwanese meatballs - Yes.
    Pearl milk tea - OHMYGOD Yes.
    Mango shaved ice - Yes.

    I think a huge component of Taiwanese food is the texture. They use a lot of textures that aren't really commonplace in Western food (i.e: tapioca balls in pearl milk tea), which some may not take to, and others love from first bite. Out of that list, pearl milk tea and mango shaved ice are my favorites. Other favorite Taiwan foods include spicy hot pot, beef noodle soup Taiwanese style and ba-wan.

    How do you feel these food when you eat?:confused:
    What do you mean by how do I feel? Well I like the taste of all of them, was worried about trying stinky tofu as it really does smell awful, but it taste sooooo good! And with pearl milk tea, I always have it when eating out around China Town...

    HAI YOU. I'm on Azn time. And not so much cushions as little gummy pillows. They're addictive though. Like gummy pillows of cocaine rainbows with sparkles on top and all served in a long, tall and ice cold glass of ecstasy.

    It just so happens that I am studying in Taiwan, and I think I've tried all those things, except for the Taiwanese meatballs (actually, I'm not entirely sure what they are....what's the Chinese for them?). I have bubble tea (pearl milk tea) practically every day, and there's an oyster omelette place literally just opposite where I live. "Pig blood cake" sounds disgusting but is actually pretty nice...I mean, it's basically just black pudding with rice in it. I've had stinky tofu a grand total of once -- it's not THAT bad, but certainly not pleasant to eat. It's quite hard to get over the smell.

    As for my favourite, it would definitely have to be bubble tea. YUM!

    They're really just called "pig blood cakes" I think...zhu xie gao. I'm sure there's gotta be a tastier sounding English translation.
