Taipei 17-21 Apr 2010 (Part 4 – Jiufen & Wufenpu)

Jiufen’s an old mining town with lots of shops selling local specialties & tea houses.



To get to Jiufen, we took the MRT to Taipei Main Station, then changed to an express train to Ruifang.



Here’s a pic of the train station at Ruifang.

As well as shops selling curios!



This looked so yummy while it was steamed…



It turned out to be not so yummy vegetarian I don’t know what you call it.  Thankfully, we only ordered 1 bowl!

Climbing stairs is a must.

A really old movie billboard & a 100-year old wheel.



A teahouse



Lemon w/ kumquat & lime and tea jelly



There’s this really good “zi char” place called Chang Wang near Wufenpu.  Food was CHEAP & good!



Kangkong cost only SGD3.60 (and it was good!)



The beancurd wasn’t too bad either.


Sweet & sour pork was normal tasting but cheap.  Costs around SGD5.



This “3-Cup chicken” was the best of the best!  *Slurp*





My shopping in Taipei!  😀
