You’ll be given plenty of yummy options to choose from.Perhaps you want to get your chops around some fried yam balls to start, or maybe you’d like to try somekarasumi, or mullet roe, which is made from the eggs of mullet fish, baked until rosy red and considered a delicacy inTaiwan. If you’re into some more traditional meat, try some tender pork leg served with rice and shrimp soup, or a chicken roll with rice and barbeque sauce, packed with flavour. If you have more of a vegetarian persuasion, never fear! There’s so much at Ningxia Market for you, too. There is a vegetarian stall that sells all kinds of things - a popular choice is sticky rice with mushrooms, or perhaps you’d like to hit up someTaiwanesetofu dishes. You can also pick up some taro balls with egg, served from one of the most popular stands in the market, or maybe just some simple yet scrumptious rice balls, boiled in sugar soup and served up with peanut or red bean soup to balance out the sweet flavours. If you feel like even more soup after that, why not a bit of a mix of everything together and order yourself some herb soup, which is especially good after you’ve eaten a lot and want to give your digestive system a bit of relief. Yam or taro balls are added to this herb soup to create a traditionalTaiwanesedessert (it might sound weird for dessert, but you should definitely try it!).
