Lu Dan Chuan Guo in Taipei, Taiwan

Hot Pot

That was kinda cool. This hot pot place (16 North Jianguo Road Section 2, 2506-3622) was fueled by charcoal rather than gas. And while that meant that my hair and clothes came back smelling like smoke, it was in an old building with wooden shutters that just gave it more of that old school charm.

Interestingly though, a colleague of ours from the mainland was in town, and she pointed out that the seasoning here was definitely a Taiwanese adaptation compared to the proper Sichuan grease bombs that she's used to getting in Beijing. Either way, it was cool to try out that "18 day" Taiwan Beer, which did not have the aftertaste that the normal (pasteurized?) version has.
