Hakka breakfast

This noon I introduced Yuki to the Hakka stall at the traditional market near XInSheng. It's the same Hakka stall that my father introduced to me last month. I tried to remember what me and my father ordered last time, but I'm not too sure if it was correct. We ordered Hakka rice noodles (米粉麵一碗), 豬心? and 油豆腐. It's definitely a unique flavor and you have to really appreciate Hakka cuisine in order to stand the dirty market environment and lines. I loved it. Definitely a hole-in-the-wall, local-only type of thing. No tourists in sight. This traditional market is on the corner of Section 1, XinYi Rd. and Section 1, JinShan South Rd. Afterwards we met up with Lucy and her roommate Grace from Hsingchu. We immediately headed out to Keelung. Once we arrived we explored around before heading into the MiaoKou (廟口夜市) night market. We ate a few small snacks that we can't find in Taipei. Like giant squid arm and fresh Uni right out of the body. The uni was awesome, but expensive. I LOVE Uni and I've never ate it straight out of the shell. Afterwards, we decided to head back to Taipei early for some further dinner and drinks. First a drop off to Macho Tacos, because Lucy and friends haven't had decent Fresh-Mex since California. Afterwards, back to the bars behind Ximen Red House. It was Grace's birthday. So Happy Birthday and bottoms-up!
