Great Things To Eat At A Taiwanese 7-Eleven Convenience Store
I swear! The Taiwanese 7-Eleven is the most visited convenience store on the island. When we visited Taiwan, we stayed at Just Sleep Hotel in downtown Ximending Taipei. We choose this hotel as there’s a Taiwanese 7-11 on the ground floor. Seriously, I love it!
There are so many great things I love to eat here.
Some Malaysians like me are like that. We like to stay where comfort equals food is! What’s the difference between the local 7-Eleven and Taiwanese 7-Eleven? Well, they sell goods from Taiwan or Japan or Korea!
For someone who doesn’t really shop, I could spend few hours in the 7-Eleven! Someone, please drag me out of there. LOL.
7-ELEVEN ARE EVERYWHERE IN TAIWAN
Facts: 7-Eleven has 56,600 stores in 18 countries worldwide. Taiwan has a whopping 5,161 stores at end of October 2017. Taiwan is ranked as having one of the highest densities of 7-Elevens in the world. It feels like there’s a 7-Eleven around the corner when we went sight-seeing.
I kid you not.
We got to hang out and browse happily in the little convenience store. How Many Times? Every time we trooped back to the hotel and every time before we headed out. Plus a few times in the night after all the shops and street food stalls were closed. Surprisingly we felt famished for some snacks all the time in Taiwan.
It must be the cool weather. Or the magic draw of the 7-Eleven.
Then there’s all the kwaii stuff. All the glorious food like hard boiled duck eggs and all sorts of meatballs.
My favorites are the braised turnips which I will eat one every night for supper.
In tropical Malaysia, the highest selling items are Slurpees, Cigarettes, Beers, and Condoms. In Taiwan, I fancy it must be tea eggs! Step into a 7-Eleven and the scent of Assam black tea perfumes the air. The sight of a pot of hot tea eggs on the rolling boil is very comforting. I had one every night for supper.
Well, the tea egg and a large piece of soy braised turnip “burger”. See why I like it so much that I repeat that like a chant.
You can always recreate the good taste of Taiwanese Herbal Tea Egg Spices at home.
