Tamsui Old Street is an old street where Allie has been shopping since childhood. He has come here too many times to count. Every holiday is always full of people, and he can see tourists from many countries. Although Tamsui is already familiar to us, we still want to come and go on holidays occasionally. On a sunny afternoon, we take a boat to eat delicious food, and walk along the golden waterfront trail. The mood is very healing! Because of the proximity to the fishing port, there are a lot of fresh catches here, and there are special delicacies such as Danshui Ajie and Tiedan that are rarely eaten in other places. Friends who have not been to Danshui, let's take a look together~

Tamsui Old Street Food｜Sour plum soup
I don't know why, but when I come to Danshui, I especially want to drink the sweet and sour plum soup, which is especially thirst-quenching under the sun! It is recommended to add ice cubes to taste better, with moderate acidity and sweetness. At that time, even Jeffy, who was afraid of sourness, said it was good to drink, which made him completely change his mind about the sour plum soup! There are many famous sour plum soups in Tamsui Old Street, among which Ama's sour plum soup and Hongma's sour plum soup are quite famous.

Tamsui Ajie is already a well-known Tamsui delicacy! There are several in the old street alone, which are cheap and filling delicacies. Hollow out the oily tofu, fill it with winter noodles, and serve it with a slightly sweet and not spicy sauce. According to the local people, the really delicious Ajie is not in the old street, but it is convenient nearby, so we just buy a bowl in the old street to eat it!

This authentic old Danshui store located in Danshui Old Street, because of its good location, is always crowded with people on holidays.

Jeffy remembers eating it when he was with his dad when he was a kid. At that time, he was shocked when he saw this Big Mac ice cream! This time we bought it again and still felt that it was a big one. It really tested the clerk's skill in pulling ice cream! The combined flavors of vanilla and chocolate are not too sweet. Even if the portion is large, it will not be too greasy to eat together with cookies. Otherwise, it will become more and more like a machete like our ice cream~

Immediately after getting the Huazhiwan, go to the seasoning area to add your favorite flavors. The flavors here include black pepper, seaweed, plum powder, and chili.
