Some coworkers just gave me some corn chips with locally made salsa, which I would normally consider a waste of good corn chips. But I was surprised that this salsa wasn’t bad – not bad at all. It came from a chili pepper store/museum close to the Wuta train station in Nan’ao, Yilan County. It might be worth dropping by if you’re in the neighborhood.
The Web site (Mandarin only) is surprisingly large.
