Upon returning to Taiwan, I went to dinner with some of my former students.
I had the most wonderful pumpkin "火鍋" (aka: "hot pot"--a kind of boil and eat and boil and eat some more dish). The base of the soup can come in many flavors. And, by far, my favorite is pumpkin--which is not common.
At this same resturant, we had drinks. Now, if you are not familar with Taiwan, you don't know that Taiwan has a HUGE selection of GREAT drinks of all sorts and kinds. I think I could possibly try a new drink each day of the year and still not exhaust the drink menu of just one drink shop! There really is that much variety!
Anywho, I had a green milk tea with a green tea jello-ish pudding. Yes, you actually use a giant straw to slurp the green tea jello-ish pudding into your mouth.
It may look gross, but let me tell you this drink has now made my list of top ten Taiwanese drinks!!! It was so wonderful, I guess they must serve this drink in heaven. ;)
Take a look inside my glass at this wondeful drink:
I know, I know, it looks gross. But, really, trust me, it is GREAT!!!
