Squid (Chinese New Year Market, Taipei, Taiwan)
Squid is a delicacy in many parts of the world, including the Mediterranean. Across the water in Asia, it’s also equally loved. A must-visit spot is the Chinese New Year Market in Taipei, Taiwan. For two weeks leading up to the holiday, Dihua Street is filled with vendors selling all sorts of gorgeous food.
Dried or fried squid is one of the most popular things offered. People buy it by the pound, gorging on its deep-fried deliciousness. Squid is popular in all of its various forms, from fresh to shredded. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
