Some Kind of Tainan Fish Stew and Rice Cake
This little shop right outside the Shilin MRT station in Taipei was specializing in some really small bowls of gooey stuff from Tainan. We stopped in and asked for one of each. The first was a thick clear stew with mashed fish balls in it. Actually, "stew" is not the right word to describe it, since I think the thickness comes from corn starch, but a good squeeze of hot sauce dumped into this made for a quick and easy snack (especially if you're a cilantro lover like me).
The other item was some kind of rice mashed up and shoved into a bowl (and steamed, I think?). It turned it into some kind of a cake-like stuff upon which some sauce got dumped onto, almost tasting a bit like carrot cake (especially with some of that hot sauce too). Anyway, these were just a couple quick and easy pre-dinner snacks for us, conveniently priced at just NT$35 (US$1.05) each.
