As the title suggests, Tainan is truly The City of Gold, especially for photographers and food lovers. I was in photographic bliss this morning, eagerly checking my camera and making sure I had taken the photo that I had hoped I had taken.
Like most places, once you get away from the hussle and bustle, people tend to be a bit more relaxed and in turn, have lots more time for you. I met some great people this morning, and all happy with the transformation that is happening in Tainan.
I found a beautiful noodle shop that sells one of the specialities of Taiwan, mifen ( 米粉）. The owner has been working there for 45 years and he’s still doing it with a smile too! I ordered the fish ball noodle soup and it was amazing!
It’s not on Google maps, so here’s a rough location. (700, Tainan City, West Central District, 海安路二段455巷14號). It’s located in a cool little market place. The photograph of the guy cooking is the front of the shop.
The alleys around here are rich in curiosities and I get such a buzz winding through them.
My fascination with windows in Tainan grows and grows too. So many designs and often something interesting hanging from them. I just love peering through them and seeing the oddities that appear.
If you ever come to visit or live in Tainan, please do yourself a favour and explore this wonderful ‘City of Gold’ !
