This new pizza will be a worry for The Pizza Hut people, less than half price and better tasting.
How does a Turkish hotel manager of a 5-star resort come to live in Taiwan and run a street food stall? Location: nearly opposite Kaohsiung Main Station.
“I met my wife-to-be about nine years ago” says Halit Toprak in his version of the English language.
“I did some trips to Taiwan and she visited me several times in Turkey before we got married over one year ago”.
One food item cooked by Halit is a deep fried dumpling, (San Chow Bow in Chinese). Meat or potato & cheese. NT $40 each.
We met during my last visit to the city a few weeks ago.
It was Halit’s English voice that stood out in the busy crowd as I walked past.
In a city where the number of English words spoken is minimal we both found a common interest, easily
Taiwanese people are helpful and very friendly toward foreigners. Almost every day there is some little high-point that makes life that much better and worthwhile.
In addition, everywhere in the city is something new and interesting happening. if you are able to take time and enjoy. Australians actually live a quiet life.
A regular bit of both cultures would be ideal.
CHINESE HERBAL DRINKS – EASILY OBTAINED
Hot or cold drinks for better health made with Chinese herbs! Some are extracted via an espresso machine, others mixed in a blender. New shop on a prime corner position opposite Kaohsiung Main Station and MRT. Next door to a McDonalds. Will these herbal drink shops increase a higher awareness in looking after ourselves?
Hangover treatment? Flu treatment? Anger, PMT – the list is endless. Now there is a drink to alleviate anything. Nervous re a job interview? -Have a herbal drink.
I’m just guessing that these drinks can be a help in these situations – but it’s a calculated guess based on my limited understandings. It might just be the new thing internationally?
There’s a YouTube video of the crowd outside this shop on opening day and a demo of drinks being made. See below:
