I got a bit depressed reading the thread about the most disgusting food in Taiwan. I must admit that I haven’t been too impressed with the quick foods. Much of that has to do with the fact I can’t speak Chinese yet and don’t know what to ask for. My Chinese co-teachers took me out for lunch one day and I was pleased to finally choose from a selection of soups, dumplings, pickled salads, and even the spicy duck’s blood (which had more of a bad psychological affect rather than a bad taste).
On my own, I tend to wander into Shabu-Shabu and other places that have pictures. But all this stuff tends to have a bland sameness to it. I sure wish I had a kitchen, because I know I’d have a great time making something of the good fish selection at my local supermarket.
Somebody please start a poll about the food you DO like in Taiwan.
