Red Bean Cake at the Square

DSCF1691_1200x800

There are certain childhood memories that come up for me whenever I am in Taipei. Lately, the warmer, humid, semitropical weather has really been giving me that feeling of Taiwan when I was really young, and the nostalgia reminds me of someone I was a long time ago. Another one of these lovely memories is eating Red Bean Cake. It’s kind of like Japanese dorayaki with the filling and the pancake-like batter, but it’s crispier and made “on the streets” here, and the aroma always catches you just a few footsteps away (totally manipulative marketing techniques 😉 ). The guy who runs this particular red bean cake place remembers me from when I was seven years old! That’s a good 16 years! I shared this cake with Pietro and enjoyed every bite hanging around this space I grew up in with my loving partner 🙂
