Besides appreciating scenery and experiencing culture, travel is also a trip for food. In Xiamen, one of the most famous cuisines is seafood. But because of the time limited, we chose one of the famous Xiamen food streets – Taiwan Snack Street which was near the ferry port.
This food is a special sausage. It has an interesting name called large sausage wrapped small sausage. The large sausage is made of glutinous rice, while the small one is the traditional sausage. Unit-price 15 yuan.
Tu Sun Dong (in Chinese means frozen bamboo shoots), crispy, spicy and sour, unit-price 5 yuan

Barbecue, without spicy taste, fresh for me

It is said that during 1661, a war between Holland army and Zheng Chenggong (a famous militarist) army was caused in Taiwan. Holland army attacked warehouse of food. Zheng used his intelligence to make out this Taiwan style pancake by applying the local materials in Taiwan. At first, this food just made for soldiers.
