Weekend Food Tour: Lunch @ Taroko Gorge


Hot Sake in a wild pig figurine
Taroko Gorge is located in Hualien County, Eastern Taiwan. We had 10 hours tour departing from Taipei via Airways to Taroko. We experienced having lunch in Leader Village. Here are the details:

This is funny, I thought of having a meal as what the villagers are eating traditionally. After serving the warm sake, here's the salad.


Our meal in a tray, obviously there's salsa, the rest are fine. A mix of fish, sweet potato, mushroom, and soup. There's also a green salad that we most of us couldn't take. It's a little bit slippery.
I enjoyed this fish. It looks hard, actually it's not and it has lots of fish fats at the bottom.

Rice cooked in a bamboo, kind of chewy but I like it. We were served fruits and cakes for desserts.

Another cup of tea and we're ready to go...

The rice must be the glutinous rice. :) I don't like slippery greens too, but the rest looks great!
