Streetfood in Cijin Island 旗津, Kaohsiung Taiwan

Cijin Island is a 5-minute ferry ride from Kaohsiung harbor. There are a number of sightseeing activities here that include a stretchy sandbank with beautiful beaches, lighthouses, and forts.

However, our focus on Sunday was the streetfood on the island although it’s famous for its seafood. Here we’re queuing for the lady boss to prepare kimchi rice cakes for us.

You could choose your kimchi to be spicy or not. We took the non-spicy ones and sprinkled more of the crispy vegetarian meat floss on our rice cakes.

These mini eggs were so cute and I was fascinated by the assorted flavored condiments – plum, soy sauce, ketchup, pepper that went with the snack. Curious, I ordered a packet to try.

Beaming as I held my “mini island eggs” with spicy pepper and sweet soy sauce. Make sure to eat them while steaming hot – nom!

It was okay, not as fermented but the chili made up for it.

We also stopped by this cozy home turned vegetarian eatery hidden in a lane beside the famous Mazu temple for some food.

Steamed vegetable dumplings was delicious, I was soaking them in black vinegar sauce and ate most of it.

The soup noodles was very tasty and could tell they added a lot of barbeque sauce to flavor the dish.

Cindy spotted the “very spicy” chilli but warned me to eat with caution. Spicy good!

The food stall is located outside while we watched TV as if in someone’s home inside. A good stopover to rest our weary legs and enjoy some “homecooked” food. Totally enjoyed and worth our short trip to Cijin Island in Kaohsiung.
