The family took a short day trip to Kaohsiung during the Lunar New Year holidays. All we did in Kaohsiung was pay our dear Granny a short visit, then left. On our way back, someone suggested that since traffic jam was almost inevitable, we might as well enjoy ourselves by devouring the delicacies along the way back to Taichung. Our first stop was Tainan for their famous 'rice bowl cake'. My parents highly recommended it, but I'd never had it. Seeing that I don't usually eat pork, and that the previous night I was just sent to the hospital for bad tummy, I didn't plan to each much anyway. I got excited about this plan, only because I thought I got a chance to take loads of pictures for articles on the blog.
It was not far off from the freeway. They have their own parking lot. People move fast and eat fast. So basically, you won't have to worry too much about waiting too long for a parking space - that is, if you have to wait at all.
They don't have much variety on their menu, but look at all the people working their a*se off... We had to queue up, too, but not for too long. If you're with company, get someone to find yourselves a table while someone else can wait in the line.
Then, voila! The famous 'rice bowl cake' of Tainan!
This is fish thick soup.
What a beauty this rice bowl cake is!
And all I could have was a nice bowl of fish-ball soup. At this point, I thought it was the wisest thing to do, seeing that there was still more food to go on the way.
I got a bite, without the pork, from my mum, and yeap! It sure was good.
Not quite environmental friendly, but this is indeed a very convenient and sanitary way of dispersing the sauce.
Of course, with that kind of packaging, scissors are a must.
Then, seeing all these bowls, I started to wonder... were they really capable of eating more after this meal!?!?
I mean, afterall, these bowl cakes were pertty filling!
After the meal, we got back on the car, and not unexpectedly!!!
After each having had two rice bowl cakes and a bowl of soup.... They decided to call it a day!!!
What a disappointment!
