Jiufen The Food Pardise

Apparently re-visited the little village on a mountain, the place that everyone visits in Jiufen is the old  street where all the shops, restaurant and pedestrian food snack is located.
We we're here just to spend our lunch and re visited one of the best chinese restaurant of Jiufen called  戲夢人生.
Jiufen it’s a narrow street with endless choices and lots of peoples from locals Taiwanese peoples to Japanese and lots of tourist.
The reason why we are here is the steamed chicken flavor with none liquor. Seriously though, it was cold but I got used to it after eating this dish for many times and it's good and heavenly delicious.
This is the steamed goose soaked in wine and pineapple. it's alright, but I preferred the steamed chicken. I never did care much for pink coloured of goose or duck, I always go for the steamed chicken  ones.
Steamed shrimps with wine and ginger
The eggs were mild salty, though the radish added a nice crunch to the dish. And if you got here you should try this dish and steamed chicken.
As far as the soupy noodle, another signature dish of Taiwanese is the classic niu rou mian, or beef noodle. There's no chinese influence on this dish is very Taiwanese, the beef is tender and the soup is well-performed. The noodle also absorb the essence of soup flavor.
Chinese fried rice I was totally surprised by its tasted delicious.
 Mixed of mushrooms soup
We walked till the end of the street for the hilltop view before slowly exploring the dozens of tiny shops. As usual the shop that got our attention just before the elementary school is the most famous and where the glutinous yam balls in Taiwan was born.
One of the most famous dessert is the yam balls. They actually have yam balls of different flavors like taro, sweet potato, green tea and so on but I liked the sweet potato balls ones best for me.
I refused my husband not to buy a 4 bowls of this yam balls since i'm not a big fan of yam balls. But after we try and eat this tiny little ones. We attempt for second batch and it's too late for us so many people waiting outside the counter. And you should have to go back on line again and there's a couple of Japanese customers, and this yam store and factory is famous also in Japan. Yam it can be serve in cold or hot and different type of flavor it can be mixed with sweetened beans and condensed milk.
