From classy and minimalist to cosy and chic, these hotels won’t break the bank!

– ライブが終わったのは23時過ぎ。今夜はもう食べないぞ!と決めたものの、やっぱりお腹が空いて夜中にホステル近くをうろうろしていたところ、滷味屋台 #四姨婆滷味 を発見。夜遊び帰りっぽい若者やスーツのサラリーマンが並んでたので、あ、おいしい店だ、と期待して買い込み。 さすがにこの時間の肉はまずいと思い、豆干や甜不辣、ブロッコリー、エノキ茸、マコモ筍(そして麺ナシ!)などなど、私にしてはいささか控えめラインアップ。辣度はいつもの「一點點」。 味はわりとあっさりしていて、漢方系風味は抑えめ、そしてピリ辛だから夜中にビールに合わせて食べるにはピッタリ。並んでいる屋台で買うのが吉。この法則はやっぱり正しい。 #2019GW #過去写真 #過去pic #台湾🇹🇼#Taiwan #台北 #taipei #台湾旅行 #台湾夜市 #台湾美食 #台湾グルメ #台湾ひとり旅 #ひとりっぷ #taipeifoodie #taiwanfood #ilovetaiwan #travelgram #discovertaiwan #meetcolorstaiwan #台湾公認インスタグラマー
