I’ve been blogging on and off for a year now, I’ve tried my hand at steemit and a couple other WordPress blogs but never stuck with it. I love food but felt overwhelmed by the amount of work food blogging takes. However, for the new year (my resolutions start late) I want to start properly documenting the many food experiences I have and had in Taiwan so that I can share and re-live them.
I personally think Taiwan is a great place to start a food/travel blog.
1) There’s a huge amount of food here, focused mostly on local ingredients and styles, which means you likely won’t find it in other countries. (I’m thinking of my favorite: stinky tofu and duck blood) I want to show people how great food culture is in Taiwan.
And 2) There is a huge lack of information on websites here. There’s been countless times where I want to find the menu, prices, or general information of a restaurant, only to find it links to an empty Facebook page. It’s frustrating to see, especially when it turns people off what could have been a delicious meal.
So here’s to many more blog posts ahead. (I’ll be working backwards for the first few posts, I’ve got around 7 months off food to catch up on.) Hopefully this will be helpful for others trying to find the next good eat in Taiwan.
I moved to Taiwan in the summer of 2017 (seems like decades already). I used to visit this beautiful island every year, and have grown to love it even more since moving here. I love watching it change and become a more popular travel destination for foodies and explorers. There’s so much to eat and do in Taiwan it’s a shame to not share!
I try to put as much information as I can on my Instagram, but I’ll be using this blog to supplement with more pics of food, location, and more.
