For some reason, Taiwanese fried chicken is really popular in Shanghai. On my way back from campus, I usually see 5 of them. But the most well known Taiwanese fried chicken is Hi-Star. It’s located in Shilin Night Market in Taiwan and the lines are ALWAYS crazy long. It was no different at Raffles City (take the 2 and get off at People’s Park). People were lined up for this fried chicken mostly because it’s famous for being so huge. Here is my friend Laura’s hand for comparison, if that doesn’t impress you, I can hide my whole face behind this chicken.
My first traditional Czech meal: beef in a gravy-esque sauce with dumplings that look like Quaker rice cakes

Must-go-again restaurant: Osteria Santo Spirito. Cheap, amazing food! Order the Gnocchi Gratinati ai Formaggi Morbidi al Profumo di Tartufo! It’s baked gnocchi and cheese, creme sauce, and truffle oil. Perfetto… and with wine and fizzy water it came to a total of 9 euro each. Not too shabby at all.
Our amazing dinner last night at a Beijing Duck restaurant. Duck is a really fatty and oily meat so it was hard to eat too much of it. We also ate pork fried with leeks, fried pork with little crispy things on it (sorry for the poor explanation), and this taro dish that looked more like tofu (but it was delicious).
