Taichung Day 5 (Part 2)

After visiting Lavender Cottage our cab driver brought us to this place called Dong Dong Yu Yuan (東東芋圓) which specializes in selling the black ball dessert. It consists of yam, tapioca and sweet potato balls, black pearls and glass jelly on top of shaved ice. The Taiwan version comes with yam paste as well, which I really love!

 They had an amazing exhibit like this and everything was basically made out of cardboard. The tiny cardboard cars were going round and round the structure on their own, I wonder how they did that!

Fengjia Night Market is really hugeeee! Some food are best avoided though, as tourists often end up paying exorbitant prices for them. :( We bought a packet of braised food for more than SGD10, and a packet of fruits for SGD12. Wow.
