How are you spending your SundayFunday?
There are so many wonderful hole in the wall places and alleyways to explore in Tainan, that we’ve spent the past month biking around without leaving the city. It’s amazing how long you can stay in one place and never even scrape the surface of its true culture! I love the luxury of taking my time to get a feel for a city and, if I could, I’d visit every city this way.
Even so, we happily welcomed the change of pace in going to visit Eric’s dad last weekend in Kaohsiung (Eric’s dad does work in Taiwan and the US). We hopped on the TRA slow train from Tainan to Kaohsiung and enjoyed the little things along the way…

Biking around Tainan City last week, we happily stumbled upon the colorful, historical Chihkan Tower. Also known as Fort Provintia, Chihkan Tower was once a Dutch outpost. Then, it was destroyed by an earthquake, leaving behind a ghostly glimpse of a staircase in a hidden underground room. This cultural monument has intruiging remnants of aboriginal times and is a worthy short afternoon stop (it’s also supposedly gorgeous at night).

Being vegetarian in Taiwan proves to have its difficulties if you don’t speak Mandarin and can’t ask for other options. If you’re experiencing the language barrier and shopping with your eyes, you may find the majority of street vendors are focused around meat. Sure, there are plenty of egg dishes and stinky tofu, but if you like variety like we do, these options get old pretty fast.

Unluckily, I still don’t like eating something that’s looking at me (like shrimp with the head still on), so I’ve been having trouble finding protein-filled eats in a country that doesn’t serve cheese, beans, or much soy. That is, until we stumbled upon Vonny’s Garden Vegetarian Restaurant. All is saved and beyond delicious!
