Taipei Shopping: 64 reviews and 76 photos
The story began with a poor old granny who can hardly sold her soy-sause-marinated-egg. Therefore, she kept boilt her eggs, until one day her products was as hard as stone. However, it attracted a lot of gluttens, and the fame and the legend and the tourism began.
There are many places selling "Iron Egg" in Danshui. A-Po is one of the most famous and the best shops there. Whenever I go Danshui, I buy some of their products home. By the way, there is nothing special with this shop, but the munchies they produce.
What to buy: Iron Egg is a preserved egg. It's boiled by speical sause and then dry up; the same process repeat three times, and your egg is as hard as a stone. It's a little bit salty but delicious, a little bit hard but chewy. I think you would like it. What's more, it's like trademark of Danshui.
Yu-Su is another trademark of Danshui. It's like dried tempura really savoury; I don't like it due to high cholstero and tallow that makes mey fingers oily.
What to pay: A package of Iron Egg is NT100;
a package of Yu-Su is NT50.
Exchange rate is about US1=NT31~33
Directions: At a corner; right opposite to Red Castle Cafe.
Theme: Food and Drink
