*Snacks* Zheng Ji (小南郑记) – The Tainan Famous Delicacies
The Tainan Zheng Ji (小南郑记) has been operated for more than 50 years with few outlets opened across Taipei region due to its popularity.
This restaurant produces the best classic Tainan (台南) dishes such as Tainan Bowl Cake (台南碗粿) and Milkfish Soup (虱目鱼羹).
Most Taiwanese people visit this restaurant frequently for these two delicious treats just like having bubble milk tea every day!
Steamy Delicious Bowl Cake
The Tainan Bowl Cake (台南碗粿) NT$45 serves in a ceramics bowl which has a thick layer of steam soft-starchy flour on the surface.
Once you start digging deeper within the core, mouth-watering “goodies” such as egg yolk, shrimps, pork meat, and scallion will start to reveal themselves.
Taste very awesome while mixing with the brown sauce (on top) and have a texture similar to Yam Cake (芋头糕).
Tainan Famous Fishball Soup
The Milkfish Soup (虱目鱼羹) NT$40 also known as the “Taiwanese Fishball Soup” are made by using Milkfish to ensure the taste and consistency is being well preserved.
Instead of using clear soup, this version is being served by using starchy based soup with a small drizzle of vinegar to enhance the overall flavour.
If you love to have shark fin soup (or the fake variation) with that kind of soup consistency, then the milkfish soup is also one of your favourite things! 😉
*Recommend to try out this delicious classic treat at their main shop (heard to be the best among all) at Long Shan (龙山).
