For longtime readers of this blog, you are aware that I don't often mention specific food dishes, nor do I include lavish pictures of food that I have eaten. However for once I'm departing from this format with a 15 part pictorial write-up of the food that we ate on the trip we took late last year to Taiwan. The reason for this departure is the wonderful tour put on by Supera Tours (www.superatours.com), the English language arm of the Signet Tour Company in the San Gabriel Valley and the array of extraordinary meals we had on the trip.
For those who have taken a tour packaged in the Chinese communities of California or Canada, tour food wasn't anything to talk about, unless the talk was grousing about how boring and repetitive the food was. That's because for many tour companies, food is a cost to be minimized in order to keep the tour price economical. But in the end after hearing a number of people say that it seemed like they ate the same food every day on these tours (a description with which I concur) I wondered if it had to be this way. Fortunately we came across Supera Tours, which while not operating a high priced gourmet, foodie tour, provided food highlight after food highlight, which made me completely rethink the concept of the culinary end of Chinese tours.
The first segment of What We Ate In Taiwan, which covered the food we ate before the tour began, was previously posted here.
The next fourteen segments, generally discussed in chronological order on a venue by venue basis, can be found after this posting, except that the last segment does not appear here on the main blog page, but has to be linked directly due to a website glitch at http://chandavkl.blogspot.com/2020/02/what-we-ate-in-taiwan-part-14-farewell.html
