The third edition of the Kaohsiung International Food Festival took place two week-ends ago, so I brought myself there, along with an empty stomach. The venue was, as previous years, located on the premises of the Dream Mall, a judicious choice, conducive to attract a crowd of foreigners and locals alike.
I only passed by the festival last year, and don’t remember why, but didn’t try any of the food. This year, I felt more inspired, and tried a few things which, overall, satisfied my taste buds. I was a little surprised at the number of booze stands, but to balance things, they also had one stand offering entertainment for kids. Live music and contests were also part of the festivities to keep everyone entertained.
In any case, all in all, I enjoyed the opportunity to eat food from different vendors, simply by making a few steps from stall to stall, instead of dragging myself to the four corners of town for it. Now, here’s a glimpse at what I munched on that day:
If it had not been for all the food in my fridge at home, I would have come back the next day to try out the stand serving what looked like some promising pita wraps, sausages from Cory’s Kitchen, and one of those mini savory pies, but well, it’s good to leave some for next year 🙂 .
