Split Pot Hot-Pot: You get 2 different broths to cook things in!
Desserts

My favorite: snowflake shaved ice! (The shaved ice is extra fine and super fluffy!)

Gigantic regular shaved ice w/ fruit topping.

This place is famous for giant bowls of shaved ice, as you can see.

That's all! Hope you enjoyed this food tour. Have a great Memorial Day weekend! What are you up to this weekend? Have I wetted your appetite?



P.S. Sophia and I will be trying very hard to figure out technology this weekend so we can give you a vlog when you all come back! We're still open to questions!

I really didn't like the adaptation from Ella Enchanted. (As an adaptation) I was so excited for the movie because I loved the book so much and it really disappointed me. But as a movie by itself it was okay lol.

And this post made me so hungry!!! Bubble tea!! And that oyster omelette looked really good. I want some Taiwanese food now! ;)
