Stir Fried Chestnuts (TaiChung, Taiwan)


There are not many places left where one can eat chestnuts that are stir fried manually. If you like to eat stir fried chestnuts, you must check out this stall managed by an old couple. Other delicacies they sell include roasted sweet potatoes, and vegetarian smelly tofu. I will try those on my next visit.

Stir frying chestnuts in the cold wintery air continuously, his stamina can beat that of many younger men! The lines on his weathered face betrayed his age.
Men look the best when they are concentrating on their work!
The fruits of his labor!

Although I waited more than 30 minutes on my first visit, it’s worth it! The boss is a very gracious host and I will definitely patronize the stall again! The stall is located at the junction of FuXing Road and MeiChun Road. You can’t miss the stall’s signboard. Please visit the stall if you are in TaiChung!
