|Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall (中正紀念堂)|
Over the next few weeks, I'll be writing about my trip back to my birth country of Taiwan. Even though the trip occurred last fall, Taiwan is a place I'd visit at least once or twice a year, easily making it my second home. I love the culture, people, shopping, and of course, the food there. Although this recent trip was more for a family matter, thus a lack of pictures than usual, I hope to add more to this section on my upcoming Asia trip this fall.
|Taiwanese Breakfast (臺式早餐)|
After landing at CKS International Airport at 6AM in the morning, the only thing that was on my mind was getting some food in my stomach. After being picked up at the airport by my friends Roxy and her husband Dennis, we stopped by their house in Linkou (林口區), which is in the Taipei district. Along the way, picked up some Taiwanese breakfast. Since I had a meal with my relatives in a few hours, I had to make it light.

|Chinese Donut wrapped with Egg Pancake - you tiao bao dan bing (油條包蛋餅)|
Nothing says welcome to Taiwan to me than some Chinese donut, egg pancake and soymilk. This is a total #winning in my book. Now, those that knows me probably knows I dislike fried dough, well, I usually make an exception with Chinese donuts (油條). Bias yes, but I grew up with this stuff when I lived in Taiwan. Coming up will be a series of posts about one of my favorite things to eat, Beef Noodle Soup (牛肉麵), aka NRM. I look forward to writing about those places.
