One of the popular night market of Taiwan And I’m always eager every time go to night market, Because in night market always have many food. Today is also a rainy day Although it rains but the night market also crowdedT his is one of the most oldest night market of Taiwan. The market is the walking street with about 700m length There are many snake food, drink and beverage to traditional food with hundreds years And today I will enjoy all these foods Enter market, you can see the stall which sell the …Pepper dumpling cake Pepper dumpling cake or hujaobing. One of the most popular baked dumpling cake in Taiwan. They use powder to cover inside the meat mix paste and sesame oil and much pepper Because It has much pepper so people call it ” Pepper dumpling cake”After that they will add onion and then seal it There will be many green onion inside And then they will put into baked oven and bake.
I also eat this food at Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall The skin is fairly hard And the inside is hot and fragrance of pepper and green onion This is one of the most popular shop in here And you can see so many people queue hereto buy black pepper dumpling cake (hujaobing)The special thing when you hold the black pepper cake in hand. It is so hot and fragrance of sesame and sesame oil It is so hot so I will wait a moment for cooling Because the inside will be hotter than. So if you eat now, you will lost teeth . My mom always say like that I used to eat many pepper dumpling cakes in Taipei But this shop is one of the most oldest shop And very famous in here and in the weekend there is a long line of people here It takes 15~20 minutes to buy a cake here Because crowded and household business so the service is not so good Just a little I get burned. Dumpling is fairly fragrant pepper smell and taste is fairly sweet The dough is many layer The outer is hard and the side direct contact to baked oven is harder Inside have many green onion The filling is same to the steamed dumpling filling which we eat in Vietnam but the smell of pepper and green onion is stronger Very hot You can see the smoke coming up.
These pepper dumpling cake is not so much pepper like other place And the taste is also easy to eat than. I think one of the reason is that there are many foreigner tourist.
