If you ever feel like wading through the droves of tourists littering the streets of DanShui/Tamsui then this is a very traditional Taiwanese snack to get your chops around.
Tofu skin enveloping bean ‘glass’ noodles = A Gei.
What is it?
Traditional flavours aren’t for everyone. But, this is definitely more of an ‘entry level’ snack as far as Taiwanese snacks go. I mean, stinky tofu, century egg, pig blood cake, gelatinous this and thats, and crunchy this and thats. They can be a somewhat overwhelming.
Simply put, this is a thin tofu skin filled with glass noodles (starch and water made noodles) and topped with a chilli sauce. Now, I say it’s a chilli sauce, and it looks pretty potent. But, it’s not as spicy as you may think. It does make your tongue tingle a little, but nothing offensive.
