Taiwanese Hamburger (Gua Bao 割包) STREET FOOD IN TAIPEI, TAIWAN!!

Welcome back to our second channel! Today we are taking you out for lunch in TAIPEI, TAIWAN for some traditional Taiwanese Street Food.

We are exploring the beautiful Songshan District in Taipei, and checking out a famous street food/restaurant that serves Gua Bao, also known as the Taiwanese Hamburger. Gua bao is a steamed bun stuffed with tender braised pork, pickled greens, peanut powder and cilantro. We also ordered another traditional item – sweet corn and ribs soup. The combination of the gua bao and soup was AMAZING!

Gua bao: 55 NTD each (USD $1.84)
Corn soup: 65 NTD each (USD $2.17)

Next up, we check out the nearby Wufenpu Shopping District which sells wholesale fashion. It’s MASSIVE and CHEAP! We were looking for a duffle bag and found one on the outskirts of the shopping market.

Also nearby is the Raohe Night Market, which we decided to visit to find a Taiwanese dessert known as Dou Hua, or tofu pudding. There are many varieties of dou hua and we ordered peanut tofu pudding. It was served in a sweet syrup water with soft peanuts and served very cold. Although it wasn’t the best version we’ve tried, it was very refreshing on a hot and humid day in Taipei.

Dou hua: 35 NTD each (USD $1.17)

    ?… This vlog is so amateurish. Please learn from the Food Ranger (30 year old vlogger) or Sonny in the Best Ever Food Review or Mark Wiens. You have no passion that comes through…more journalistic than inspirational. Sabrina looks too conservative and is more uninspiring. Use this Covid time to address your branding, your styles and format. Most food vlogs with couples never make it…just being honest here so apologies for hurting your egos. Sheena and Thomas have tried for over a decade and never quite made it. Only ONE star. Also…learn to speak the local language…it helps your branding. Watched many of your videos and you both come off like tourists vlogging rather than knowledgeable food vloggers. The experienced ones do their research, know the place by visiting and trying it before hand, yet making it seem like it was their first time. Because they have millions viewers, it is quite a responsibility. The Food Ranger and Mark Wiens are fluent in many languages and endears the audience to their vlogs.
