TW Tour: B&B Dinner, Alishan

If our precious afternoon tea were not enough, our B&B also cooked up a delicious dinner for us. It was great to stay at our place of residence for dinner as after a long day of planes, trains, and automobiles, we really could not be bothered to navigate the mountain roads in search of a restaurant. We had a choice of lions head (meatballs) or fish as the main entree. But as you can see here it's quite the spread. It included a fishball soup (light and clean tasting), the entrees (the lions head was not too dense or sweet and the fish was silken).

We also got a trip of vegetables as a side. From left to right they were - bamboo with sha cha sauce, mountain san su with mayo, and pickled daikon. The vegetables were really the hit of the meal with the kind of freshness and preparation with the lightest touch that is so often lacking in the US.

The style of cooking here can only be best described as Taiwanese, mountain spa food. Nothing was heavy and everything spoke of the fresh and healthy mountain air.

We also got a mini creme brulee type dessert with the set. The funny part of all this is that all this food was only NT300 per person (~$10).
