Exploring the Miracles of Neiwan

YAM (Taro)

This is a picture of the boss and his wife. They used to live in Sanyi but later moved to Neiwan to set up this stall because they wanted to let the younger generation learn about this hakka delicacy.

They sell both fried taro meatcakes and non-fried ones. I tried the fried meat cake. It is made of flour, taro, and shrimp, and it tasted quite good. I think it will taste better with more taro and shrimp, and less of the flour in it. but well this is already quite good for 25 yuan.

This is peeled taro flown in from Natou which they use to make their taro meatcake.

Nutritional factsheet of taro, think it said something about being good for diabetics patients and for lowering high blood pressure.

they also sell homemade shrimp paste which is used for cooking

The lady boss invited us to join them for lunch. They made noodles with garlic sauce and it one of the best noodles I’ve ever tasted. I think it’s because of the sauce.
