Food from the Sea

When we were in Kaohsiung, our taxi driver recommended that we must at least have a seafood meal in Qi Jin (旗津) as that's the place to get the freshest seafood around Kaohsiung, so we followed his advice and chose one of the restaurants lining the street to have our lunch.

Qi Jin (旗津) is an island off the west shore of Kaohsiung. Taking a ferry from Kaohsiung is the most common way of visiting this island, but we hired a taxi and took the underwater tunnel which was a longer trip.


We ordered nothing but seafood! The asparagus was not spared from having been flavoured by seafood. Everything was so delicious but I only know two of them, oyster and squid! All the seafood here is so fresh that no strong flavouring is needed in preparing the dishes.







Before the meal, the taxi driver took us to the Qi Hou Market (旗後觀光市場) to buy some local produce. As the main produce is from the sea, the snacks sold here are all made from seafood as well. All of us bought some for the family members as well as friends and colleagues. They make nice souvenirs and not that expensive, and delicious too!
