Xiao Zhan Du Sticky Rice Pudding's post, small eats are big things in Taiwan. Ba Wan is one of the Taiwanese foods that we can't live without. It is no doubt my top 5 Taiwanese food. [caption id="attachment_432" align="aligncenter" width="705"] Ba Wan[/caption] Ba Wan can be found everywhere, from small booth on the street to food stall in the traditional market. The taste of it varies too. Just like every family knows how to make fried rice, but they all taste differently. The "skin" or the outer layer of Ba Wan is made with rice flour, corn starch, and sweet potato starch, and stuffed with pork and bamboo shoots. The sauce is poured on top upon serving.

Seaweed & Dried tofu[/caption] As I've mentioned, most of the Taiwanese restaurants have these appetizers, and it varies from restaurant to restaurant. The dried tofu is my favorite. They are braised in soy sauce, sugar, spices, and probably some of their secret ingredients. This dried tofu are sweet, and kind of hard outside but soft inside.
