Memories of Taipei

blogging friends all seem to be making tea eggs which got me all nostalgic so it wasn't long before I had to make a batch too. You see, tea eggs reminds me of Taipei. In another lifetime, I used to go there a lot for work - try every other week for 3 years. So I know that city very well. These tea eggs just remind me so much of my days spent in Taipei. Every where you turn in the city, there is a whiff of these eggs. All the 7-11s have a pot of them stewing in a corner.

I eat them the way the Taiwanese do - with a dipping of pepper salt. Like the Dutchess, I made 10 of them & thankfully The Girl likes them too else I would have had to eat them all by myself & trust me, I could.

Hah! You love tea eggs, too? The pattern came up nicely defined on your eggs. Nice!

Tea eggs also remind me Tauyu Bak. Now I'm itching to braise a pot of the stuff.

I wonder if it's too soon to make another batch. Darn these are addictive.
