Taiwan drinks business overseas

Seems Taiwan drink ideas such as bubble tea become USA bubble drink soda. Maybe a new drink variation for a store. USA fast food chain’s version of it.

Too bad it’s del taco. I think del taco might be the worst fast food chain in existence

These are popping boba, not related to the one they use in tea (tapioca).

Popping Boba consist of water, sugar, fruit juice, calcium lactate, seaweed extract, malic acid, potassium sorbate, coloring, and fruit flavorings

The photo makes it look like Salmon eggs. And the “bubbles” I think are a Taiwan idea (from Taichung maybe?)

Exactly, they use the same procedure to make fake salmon eggs/roe, but filled with salt, sugar, fish flavor, fish oil, colorant … the cheap stuff in ‘sushi’ restaurants is not the real thing.

Actually I’d love to. Maybe when I retire. I’ll bring northern Taiwan the Mexican food it deserves :joy:

But it’s mostly just a day dream

Nice photos, yes sometimes I wonder it’s real. Good reason check what you order at a cheap sushi place. Even in Japan as I grew up, some places are not good (most are good).

Save the fish ! Eat Taiwan sushi !

Well with the all people here in different places we can start an international chain/brand. You never know. My family in Hawaii when I visited when I was young said no one outside of Hawaii would be eat “Poke” now I’ve seen it all over Mainland USA, Japan (which is not surprise) and AU/NZ and I saw a place in Berlin (which was a surprise). Mexican-Taiwan fusion maybe less popular in Taipei but maybe will work in EU/AU-NA and the States.

It’s a good point. I think Mexican food can be adapted to taiwanese ingredients actually, but I just need to learn more about the ingredients here

You can go try IKEA Vegan fish eggs I got at KHH IKEA not sure all IKEA’ s have it. Was excited to try but not so after (did not finish the bottle).

OK! I Taiwan Taco better than Del Taco (which I think is better than Taco Bell). I tried Taco Bell in Japan, its bit different and also saw some in Shanghai. (I also like Taco Bell Ice Cream in Japan)

No way - it’s at least better than taco bell. And the nachos are downright delicious. ;D
