  • How to describe this?

  • Great.

  • For those of you who don't know, Taiwan does not play when it comes to food.

  • So, I thought it would be fun to invite some of my friends who've never had it before and see what they think of it.

  • I don't think I've ever had Taiwanese food.

  • I've had Chinese food.

  • Probably had it once without knowing it.

  • Heysong Sarsaparilla.

  • Oh.

  • Oh.

  • This is root beer.

  • I want to put ice cream in it.

  • It's like bubble gum.

  • Bubble gum, some apple juice.

  • Bubble gum?

  • Bubble gum soda?

  • Yeah, a little bit like a cream soda?

  • Yeah.

  • A little, like it's very, very sweet.

  • Oooooh.

  • This looks like Korean pancakes.

  • It's very buttery.

  • There's oil in between every layer of this.

  • Yeah.

  • I would dip it in sauce.

  • Yeah, there's like flaky layers.

  • I feel uncomfortable watching you peel it open.

  • Why?

  • I'm diggin' it.

  • It reminds me a lot of latkes.

  • Every culture has something like a tortilla.

  • This definitely tastes Asian as f*ck, so...

  • Is that garlic?

  • Is it just straight up cloves of garlic?

  • It doesn't have, like, the spice taste that a lot of sausages have.

  • Huh?

  • You don't like it?

  • No, no, it's not that I don't like it, I just haven't tasted this before.

  • It's kind of sweet.

  • But it's like a good sweet.

  • I don't get it, because sausage is ground up.

  • But this doesn't look ground up; it looks like it was ham.

  • I love the garlic with it.

  • I'm not mad at this.

  • The garlic is strong.

  • I love garlic, but it's a decision to eat straight garlic.

  • Yeah, I'll eat that.

  • Oh, my God, noodles.

  • It smells so good.

  • This is bok choy?

  • Funny because when I eat that kind of food, I never eat the cabbage.

  • Why don't you eat the cabbage, YB? It's great!

  • I really like this.

  • Refreshing and naturey.

  • This is definitely, like, a lighter dish you would have.

  • It's not too salty and it's not too sweet.

  • It's good, you know, it's beef noodle soup.

  • The thing with pho is that the beef gets overcooked.

  • Yeah, I gotta take you to better places, then.

  • Oh... egg.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • This is like Bulgogi.

  • Yeah, I was about to say, this looks kinda like Bulgogi.

  • Taiwanese food is really similar to Korean food.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • I love dishes that have multiple animals in them.

  • It almost melts in your mouth 'cause it's so... it's just so soft.

  • As a kid, I always ate rice and I always hated eating rice 'cause then I'd always have to like, mix it with the meat and stuff like this, but this is like, drenched in like it's own sauce.

  • Yaaaas, all the way.

  • There weren't like a million ingredients in each thing, there were like three to five ingredients in every dish, but they work very well together.

  • Just like a few ingredients, all happily chillin' together in your mouth.

  • A++!

  • Get you some Taiwanese food or get you someone who knows how to make authentic Taiwanese food.

  • You can't have bland pork, you crazy?

  • Is it just going to be an ad for pork?

  • Yeah!

  • Eat pork!

  • Yeah, yeah, I think that's...

  • Brought to you by pork.

  • Brought to you by pork.
