On our final day in Taichung, we had a private tour around Lukang, one of Taiwan’s oldest towns. My dad scheduled the tour for us and the driver picked us up early in the morning to drive over to Lukang. The area has some touristy spots so tour groups can walk around the area while eating snacks. We went to a tea shop to eat some miancha:


Miancha is a Lukang specialty, which is made of pulverized peanuts, flour, sugar, and water. My mom grew up eating miancha as an after school snack; it’s very thick and can be served either hot or cold. Since it was slightly cold on the day we were walking around Lukang, we ordered two peanut versions (hot) and an almond milk.

After finishing our miancha, we walked to a restaurant for their oyster omelet (“e-ah’jian”):


These oyster omelets are found in night markets all over Taiwan but they’re supposed to be the best in Lukang. They’re made out of fresh oysters, eggs, onions, lettuce and it’s topped with hot sauce and some corn starch-based sauce. I like the oyster omelets more in Taipei, especially since the sauce was overwhelming and on everything we ordered at lunch, including the fried tofu and the fried turnip cakes:


After lunch, we walked around the bakeries in the town and purchased some Lukang treats to bring back to David and Laura. Then, we headed to Kaohsiung to visit my cousin!
