Taiwanese Food

Anyone know a good website for Taiwanese food recipes? Like the Taiwanese food found @ Bubble Tea shops?

I feel like some Condensed Milk Toast and Meat Sauce on Rice
I know it should be easy, but I'm such a cooking noob :)

Excuse my ignorance but what's considered Taiwanese food? Would a teahouse like Go For Tea (right name?) in Markham be considered Taiwanese?

I've only really had Cantonese and Szechuan (sp?).

Cheers!

Taiwan is kind of popular for their tea and special drinks and whatnot... so maybe, but I'm not sure what that place exactly is.

Metro Square at around Warden/Steeles has quite a few Taiwanese places if you're interested in trying their stuff out.

The condensed milk on toast is so easy to make it's funny. Just butter up bread, toaste it, and pour warmed condensed milk over it. There's no magic. If you find the condensed milk too thick, add water or 2% milk to it to dilute.

As for meat sauce on rice, do you mean [IMG]http://img74.exs.cx/img74/5855/snap18us.jpg[/IMG]??

If so, Chinese supermarkets sell packages of flavouring with which you can add to cubes of pork, boil it until it falls apart (or you can tear it apart yourself), add some marinated veggies and pour over rice. Add a tea leaf boiled egg if you want (flavouring also available in supermarkets) Almost all the packages I've seen include detailed instructions. The steps are a bit tedious but the result is well worth it.

There is a Tawinesse Supermarket located at "Metro Square" (Warden & Steeles) ... basically you can get the ingredients from there ...

butter? really??? hmm...maybe i'm wrong, but i thought it's just bread (toasted or not) with condensed milk on top.

Yes, I like it with butter instead of plain. Adding butter adds a bit of saltiness and oil to the toast and enhances flavour/smell. Adding a bit of Parmisean cheese also adds flavour. Experiment with different things.

By Yonge and Finch, there's a really good place to eat taiwanese food. Don't remember the name, but its the only taiwanese resturant. It has the best meat sauce rice i've ate so far...

and cheap too! $3.99 lunch special with drink

i;ve lived in Markham for 15+ yrs and I have never come across a place that sells TW food, bubble tea ya, but not like da traditional breakfast store selling food or the street vendor selling fried snacks..... it wasn't until I went to Taiwan I found out how diff. TW food is from Chinese...your best bet is to buy the ingredients and just cook it at home,

I think T&T is the best for that, they sell all the ingredients, and can just make it at home. DAM-BI for breakfast or chai bow (vege buns) mmmmmm :D
