T2014 Eat before Fly

At TaoYuan airport (Taipei), we bought a set meal from a stall that we have eaten from before in the food court of the department store near our budget inn. You can see the plates having the name of the stall on them in both posts - 小南門.

The set meal consists of a bowl of white bitter gourd soup, a drink, a plate of  water spinach (kangkung) and a plate of rice with minced pork.

A lot of water spinach (kangkung)

The rice is sticky and delicious!

  1. I'd always eat at airports before flying even though food may be served inflight, helps pass the time but can be rather expensive at our airports. I think my favourite here is the all-day breakfast at Coffee Bean at Penang airport - prices reasonable unlike at most food outlets at KLIA.

    3. Hokkien is widely spoken so you are right, you will be ok.

  3. The kangkung so green and without a hint of sambal, I don't think I can ever get used to the looks of it. I will probably avoid kangkung in Taiwan next time...

    1. They can put tauchu (fermented bean paste) for the kangkung if you want.

    1. This is one portion but we shared it of course since we are small eaters.

  6. When I had to wait 2-3 hours before flight, I would dig into any airport food to relax as well. You had a delicious meal in Taiwan before flight.

    1. You can order those sets with super big pieces of meat. We prefer more vegetables.
