士林夜市 on the morning
Some wastage that haven’t been clear, rubbish still can be seen on the floor after the busy night market on day before.
Our mission for today, cycling around 八里老街 and 淡水老街 for food hunt.
Rent two bicycles from 小麥町腳踩車有限公司, nearby 關渡捷運站.
Taiwan is suitable place to ride.
關渡自然公園自行車道, well build pavement for cycling.
關渡大橋, heading to 八里自行車道.
Hopefully our government can learn from Taiwan, look at their excellent build of cycling path.
Crossed the bridge and reached 八里左岸.
Nice scene, but mind the speed, as number of pedestrian will be around.
Vegetarian biscuit/bread! Love it.
Not bad if stay here for good.
Majority of shops are selling foods here.
Famous 30 years old shop, 姊妹雙胞胎.
Ordered 雙胞胎和芋頭餅, 雙胞胎 is actually 油炸麵條.
Clearer version of map.
Bike Station where you can ask for info, pump tyres and rent bikes.
Eye opener for me, where a person can bring his/her precious bike into the toilet to avoid stolen case. The toilet got an extra space where able to park a bike properly.
Yellow duckling again.
Ferry tickets to cross river.
Instead of traditional ticketing, taiwan version of touch and go available too.
Bikers need to wait for instruction to board.
How the bike parked in Ferry.
Reached 淡水老街, 正宗阿給老店 on the left and 一口口企業有限公司(黑金傳奇) on the right.
My favorite products, brown sugar ginger tea. This is where it originated from, bought few packs back to Malaysia and it is much cheaper here.
Friendly auntie that keep pour ginger tea in our cup and ask us to drink more due to cold weather.
Tested on the new products, 兰香子 (basil seeds).
Full range of 黑金传奇 products.
It was full house, we waited for our turns.
阿妈的酸梅汤, (A-mam’s plum tea), one of the marketing commonly seen in Taiwan is by putting words such grandmother, mother, father and combine with the product.
Sponge cake, looks good but too bad the portion is too big for us.
Look at the size.
sliced in half with ice cream added in between, Ice Cream Puff.
A pic before heading back to 士林.
高麗菜包, my favorite in 士林夜市, the queue is long even though still early for a night market.
Last dinner at 三杯三怪媽媽小廚 in Taiwan before our flight back to Kuala Lumpur.
