    Yeah but it's got rice in it too, and they put sauce on it and stuff.

    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.
    OHAI

    You suck, making me feel so hungry. Here, I shall counter with my best friend, Google Images.

    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.
    I pretty much suck at names, Chinese or otherwise, so I googled it up. I've seen it before, but I can't say I've tried it. (Again, I might have, but I'm way too forgetful)

    Drat. I was so close to getting a perfect score

    Do you know where you can get them in England?
    What's your survey for?
    I don't know.
    Maybe you can go to Chinatown to find.

    I want to know the view after foreigner ate these food.

    I assume I've had everything in the list since I'm from Taiwan and always get forced to try new things. I know that stinky tofu is sold outside my nan's house at around 7am.
    Thanks your reply.

    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.
    Thanks your reply.

    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...

    Yes, I agree with you about stinky tofu.
    Thanks your reply.

    I have eaten Stinky tofu and Pig Blood tofu. Pig Blood cake I haven't. Stinky tofu smells strange and salty, but it is delicious.If you live in a small room, don't eat it.
