Weird Combo, only in Taiwan – Squid Rice Vermicelli Plus Citrus Soufflé for Dessert

Met an old friend yesterday for lunch near the Zhong Xiao Fu Xing MRT station, 忠孝復興捷運站。 We happened upon this little eight-seat food stand that serves the freshest squid 小管 with rice vermicelli 米粉 in seafood broth.  This is a very well-known dish in Taiwan and the long line at lunch validated its popularity.  We were lucky enough to be seated.  This lunch took place at the

Afterwards we visited the Sogo department store nearby and shared a citrus soufflé at Afternoon Tea, a Japanese store and food establishment. Too bad the soufflé tasted eggy- more like the Japanese steamed egg than a French dessert.  Yes, we dug into the soufflé before taking the picture!  You can find the menu and the uneaten dessert pictured here.
