Tamsui old street and fisherman's wharf is a popular spot for local and tourists. There are numerous shops along the pedestrian's walking area, offering visitors a wide selection of food, entertainment and handicrafts purchase. To get there, take MRT red line to tamsui station, which is located at the end of the line. Sit down and relax for the trip (Remarks: you may be required to change train in the mid to Tamsui)

淡水老街和渔人码头是个当地还有旅客爱逛的地方。一路经过老街,两边都是吃的,伴手礼和好玩的店铺,弄得我们都想一一的逛。要到淡水,非常的容易,乘坐红线捷运到淡水站,也就是红线北部的最后一站。小贴士:你可是要在中途换站,别担心因为捷运里会报告的。

Walk for about 10 minutes following the signboard upon arrival at Tamsui MRT station and we arrived at Tamsui old street. Actually Tamsui old street was alike a night market with exclusion of street vendors and it operated since morning.

下了淡水站,跟着路牌指示,走个10分钟就会来到淡水老街。我们个人认为淡水其实有点像夜市,只是比较整齐,没有路边摊,而且是全日营业。

There was a shop named Yeh's Wonton Restaurant and they offered a speciality dish called Jay Chou's set. It was hearsay that Jay Chou used to come here to savour their wonton and chicken thighs, thus the seat meal was named after him.

喜欢周杰伦的粉丝,应该懂百业温州大馄饨吧?听说周杰伦非常喜欢这里的云吞和鸡腿,所以就有了周杰伦套餐。

It was unusual to try such a big wonton with paper alike thin skin and the soup has a natural sweetness. The chicken meat was tender and nice skin, though we enjoyed the side dishes cucumber more.

纸薄般的云吞皮,加上饱满的肉馅,还有那清甜的汤,难怪杰伦爱吃。鸡腿的肉则腌制得非常嫩,外皮有点脆脆的。没想到的是,我们很喜欢那鸡腿附加的青瓜。哈哈!

Randomly spotted this glutinous rice sausage (60 NTD) and it appeared to be like a local popular dishes due. Although it was chewy but it was not really our cup of tea. Interestingly the shop only operate within a tiny space. On top of that, we felt the immense pressure dining here as there were only 4 chairs provided and other patrons were waiting for you to get up for a seat!

随便走走,看到这半坪屋糯米腸,觉得这么小空间也可以弄成店铺,蛮特别。加上我们的好奇心想试试看糯米肠,就在那仅有的四张椅子坐了下来。糯米肠是蛮Q,可是我们依然不太会欣赏。也许辣椒酱太淡了吗?吃了几片糯米肠就觉得肚子蛮涨的,但还是很努力的吃完它。

The sour plum drink (30 NTD) is available on the same row with the glutinous rice sausage. A good choice to quench our thirst as the sour plum drink was totally different from the usual we had.

阿妈的酸梅汤 (30 新台币)的店铺就在糯米肠同一排,是个很好的止渴饮料。拿进来马来西亚会大卖吧?

Finally we get to taste Taiwan's mochi and we really loved it. There were 2 variety of mochi - hot and cold and we were allowed to pick different ingredients for it. We went for coconut and red bean in cold version (120 NTD) , and the lady boss patiently demonstrated to us the correct way to cut the mochi upon serving.

终于终于尝到台湾的麻糬了!乐翻!麻糬有热和冷的,而且可以选择不同配料。我们选了椰子红豆鲜奶冷麻糬 (120新台币)。老板娘可是很细心的教我们正确地吃法呢~

The mochi was really good as it was soft and with a slight cold sensation. Although it appeared sticky but it taste like pudding instead, and there will not be any residues left in between the teeth.

麻糬真的很特别,软软的并带了冷爽的口感。虽然它看起来粘粘的像布丁,可是一点都不粘牙。一吃就爱上了。

The weather here was scorching hot thus we went for Taiwan signature milk tea with honey (40 NTD) and a cup of passion fruit (40 NTD). The milk tea was good but the passion fruit seemed to be overloaded with sucrose.

夏天就是要来杯清心福全的蜂蜜奶茶(40新台币)和百香果(40新台币),我们比较喜欢奶茶过百香果,可能是太甜的关系。

We got to know that iron egg is a popular dish in Tamsui. Iron eggs which are eggs that have been repeatedly stewed in a mix of spices and air dried. The resulting eggs are dark brown, chewy and about half their original size. The famous outlet selling iron egg would be Granny iron eggs but unfortunately they sell at big packets, which we deemed too much for just two of us.

阿婆铁蛋也是台湾的特征之一。它其实是鸡蛋,被香料重复的腌制和弄干。最后,变成了黑黑,像铁那样的蛋,也变小科了。可是找来找去,铁蛋都是大包大包的买。我们两个人肯定吃不完。

Tamsui old street and The "Lover's Bridge"  淡水老街,情人桥

Fortunately we managed to find a small stall by the roadside which sold them by pieces. We sampled one iron egg (10 NTD) and without doubt this was the hardest egg we ever had!

还好找到了一档有一粒一粒的卖。我们就选择了鸟蛋,果然我们是不会欣赏,因为蛋太硬了!

Things did not turn out really well and it started to drizzle thus we sheltered ourselves at 83 coffee, and enjoying a cup of their signature coffee (70 NTD).

天不作美,突然下起了毛毛雨。我们就随便躲进一家咖啡屋 - 83号咖啡屋并享用一杯招牌咖啡(70新台币)。

There was a cute and sleepy golden retriever on the corridor, with its fur shaved to resemble number "83", which was the shop's name.  It was hearsay that most of the fur kids here will have their furs shaved during summer to prevent them from getting heatstroke.

但我们更觉得他们家的黄金猎犬是他们的招牌。主人帮那只可爱狗狗背部的毛剪成83的形状,超可爱的。听说呀,台湾人都会在夏天时,贴心的帮他们的狗狗剪短毛发,怕他们中暑呢。

A-Gei is another popular food which originated from Tamsui as well. There are many shops selling A-Gei nowadays and the original shop was located at Zhenli street. We were really unfortunately as the shop was closed during our visit, thus we simply headed to another shop for A-Gei (located same row with the shop selling glutinous rice sausage)

阿给听起来像是一个人的名字,但各位别误会啦。其实阿给是一种来自淡水的食物。淡水有好多好多店卖阿给,但最原始的是真理街。可惜我们去的时候,他们家休息呀。我们就只好随便选了这家满座全席的阿给老店,就在我们吃糯米肠半坪屋隔壁而已。

A-Gei is a piece of deep fried tofu which the tofu fillings have been harvested and stuffed with flavoured crystal noodles and sealed with fish paste (surimi). Then it is served with a spicy sauce.

食物从食物电梯送来后,我们发现阿给是炸豆腐,里面塞了冬粉,浸泡過滷汁,然后以魚漿封口,加以蒸熟,还可以淋上甜辣醬。

We had A-Gei and the fishball. The condiments gave A-gei a nice taste and the fishball with meat filling was satisfying.

除了阿给,我们多点了鱼丸,最喜欢的是里面还有美味的肉馅。

Tamsui old streets and fisherman's wharf are full of food and entertainment stalls. Sometimes, we slightly regretted for not enjoying ourselves thoroughly there by indulging ourselves with the childhood games there, which would be a great chance for reminiscence.

淡水老街不止有很多美食,还有很多娱乐档口。现在回想起来,还蛮遗憾没好好享受那些童年玩意儿。

There is a Turkey ice cream stall there, which is renowned of performing various tricks when selling the ice creams. There was a really a kid cried because he cannot get the ice cream!

在老街这里有一档土耳其冰淇淋,老板专玩弄一些技巧来逗那些前来购买冰淇淋的小孩。有些小孩真的被那老板弄哭了!

On top of that, cycling is permitted at the pathway along the waterfront. If weather was good and have an extra time to spare, why not try to cycle and enjoy here?

老街沿海一带都有脚车道,喜欢踩脚踏车的你们可以考虑租 U Bike。

From Fisherman's wharf, we took the ferry across to the renowned lover's bridge. The ferry was payable using EasyCard, though we were confused why the charges to lover's bridge was 50 NTD while coming back to fisherman's wharf was 60 NTD.

来到了淡水,就要顺便去情人桥看看。我们在渔人码头的台北航运售票中心买票乘船去,可以用悠游卡付呢,非常方便。我们觉得奇怪的是,为何去时付50新台币,而回来却要60新台币呢?

Queue up nicely for the boat and stay inside the boat throughout the journey as the waves could be extreme.

海浪还蛮猛的,所以我们都乖乖在船上坐着,不敢乱乱走。

Over that side at Lover's bridge, there are plenty of restaurants. We witnessed there was live singing and some great performance by a cat impersonator, whom managed to attract a large crowd.

除了餐厅,我们还见识了台湾街头艺人的厉害。特别是那个猫的模仿艺人,把猫的细微动作模仿得唯妙唯俏,引来了很多人围观。他,简直是猫的化身呀!

An exodus of crowd will be always on the lover's bridge. The bridge is illuminated by different color light at night, making it a nice place just to sit down and relax.

情人桥上终是人山人海。我们比较喜欢晚上的情人桥,因为会有五彩兵分的灯往桥照射,非常漂亮。

Across the bridge there is this iconic LOVE sign. It was almost an automatic response that everyone will snap a picture of the LOVE sign, included us!

走过了桥,就会看到招牌的LOVE,很多人争着照相,还有标准的自拍活动。当然我们也不列外啦!

It appeared that this is one of the favourite relaxation place for local Taiwan people. People were seen jogging with their dogs and relaxing themselves there.

看来这里可是附近当地人爱休闲的地方,都来这儿跑跑步,溜溜狗。
