[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Kee Lung and local nice food 基隆市,基隆美食

We were rewarded handsomely with a wonderful experience during our trip at Keelung after we decided to spend about a day there to reduce the intensity of our schedule. Keelung is a port city, bordering new Taipei and Taipei city. Not all tourists will regard Keelung as a destination, and most tourists would make it as a stopover from Jiu Fen to Taipei.

为了让行程没那么冲忙,我们决定在基隆城待一晚。基隆是个港口都市,接壤着新台北市和台北市。不是每个旅客会把基隆列入其中一个旅游景点,最多把基隆当成九份去台北停留的地方。

Keelung night view
Keelung was nicknamed Rainy Port for its frequent and maritime role, thus Keelung people was rumoured to always carry an umbrella with them. It is an open secret that Keelung people are often associated with food such as liverwurst, potside sticker soup, seafood or sandwiches.

基隆的气候多雨阴湿,又是被台湾首要航运枢纽,所以称为雨港。听说基隆人都终会带着雨伞。提到基隆,人们都会联想到肝肠,顶边銼,海鲜,营养三文治。


We stopped at Keelung by taking bus numbered 788 from Jiu Fei. If you are coming from Taipei, you can either take a cab or a train.

我们是搭788号巴士从九份来到基隆。如果你是从台北的出发,可以使用德士或者火车。

Why we said we had a wonderful experience in Keelung? This is because the trip to Keelung allowed us to explore this less touristy area. Although lacking of any iconic landmarks except Keelung port itself or tourist spots such as Miao Kou night market or Bisha Fishing port, wandering across the streets at Keelung unveiled some of the local nice food, and let us have a glimpse at locals shop and how they carry out their daily chores.

为何我们觉得呆在基隆玩的一天之旅很美好呢?因为基隆让我们体验及探索这个还没有被旅客覆盖的城市。我们因这次来台北时间不长,所以没把基隆的观光地给去完。至少我们去了庙口夜市和碧沙渔港,然后随便走在基隆的街上,拍拍照,吃些倒地食物,看看倒地基隆人生活。

There is a spacious wooden platform called Marine Plaza located at the heart of Keelung city. Over there, a nice view on Keelung's highest tower - Hua Guan Tower or "Chinese Crown Tower" is available.

基隆城的中心,有个木建的平台叫做海洋广场,从这里可以看到基隆最高大厦-华冠大楼

Marine Plaza is always occupied people regardless day or night. It seems like a popular spot for gathering, or some parents bring their children here for outdoor activities. We hanged here for a while, trying to snap some decent pictures but ended up we being asked to help a group of people to take picture.

这海洋广场的人潮不管白天和黑夜都很多。它好像是个聚会地点,或者是父母带孩子来这里进行户外活动。我们在这儿待会儿,拍拍照,还帮一群人拍照。

There are some coast guards warships parked along the port and Keelung hill is visible from the platform.

从平台上还可以看到停泊沿港的一些海岸警卫队的军舰,还有基隆山

We came here again at night time to take some pictures as our stop at Keelung serves as a gateway during our trip, recharging us before we continue our most challenging trip to Hualien. If you wanna know why it is challenging, check out our post on Hualien.

晚上,我们又到回来这海洋广场来捕抓一些基隆夜景。对我们来说,基隆这一站好像是我们的歇息站,为我们接下来挑战性高的花莲之旅准备的。为何挑战性呢?看看我们的花莲文章吧。

Well, enough of scenes or views at Keelung as would not satiate our hunger. Keelung is a place full of nice seafood due to its location as a seaport. Actually we came over to Keelung only having idea to go to Miao Kou night market but asking the locals around unveiled some of the surprises.

基隆的美景是填不饱我们的肚子啦。基隆因为是港口的关系,有很多好吃海鲜。本来的计划只是来基隆庙口夜市,但问问倒地人却发现还有更多惊喜耶。

Located at Xiaosan Road and not far from Keelung train station, Jian Jia Osyter Pancake is a shop with more than 60 years history. It seems to a popular destination of locals as during our time there, we can see locals flocking into the restaurant.

孝三路,丽基隆火车站附近,简家蚵仔煎有最少六十年历史。看着倒地人陆陆续续的进出他们店,可见在当地蛮出名的嘛。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Kee Lung and local nice food 基隆市,基隆美食

Their business started from a pushcart and soon evolved into a shoplot after it received great responses from the people who has tried them. Success come after hard work and persistent as well.

他们是从路边摊起家,大家试过后的好评,加上他们苦心经营,现在已拥有自己的店面。成就是靠努力和坚持得来的。

As the shop name suggested, we ordered their signature osyter and prawn pancake (70 NTD). The pancake was prepared by mixing the starch and egg, with prawns, oysters and lettuce enclosed within.

我们点了招牌综合煎,就是蚵仔加虾仁煎(70新台币)。看着师傅煎,他是把淀粉和蛋,让虾仁,蚵仔和生菜给结合一块。

There comes the masterpiece of the pancake. It was finished by dousing with chili sauce and soy sauce, which heighten the flavour of the dish. The sticky soft egg and starch batter was exceedingly pleasant for mouth feeling, and the portion was just nice without causing disgust. Both the prawns and oysters were fresh.

这就是我们期待已久的综合煎啦,披上一层辣椒衣和酱油,为综合煎加很多分。那黏滑的蛋与淀粉口感很棒,份量又刚刚好,重要是虾仁和蚵仔很新鲜。

Unlike Siu Mai at other places which is mainly made of pork, the Siu Mai here is made of both pork and shark meat. Again, due to the close proximity of Keelung which offers them abundance of seafood.

他们家的烧卖不像我们普通吃的,只有猪肉馅料,简家烧卖可加了鲨鱼肉进猪肉馅料。这也是因为基隆靠近港口,不缺海鲜。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Kee Lung and local nice food 基隆市,基隆美食

3 pieces of Siu Mai cost 30 NTD, which was fairly reasonable justified by its large size. Dipping the siu mai with sauce gave a better taste actually.

三粒烧卖要价30新台币,价钱平民又大颗。把烧卖粘点辣椒酱,会更好吃。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Kee Lung and local nice food 基隆市,基隆美食

Of course there are many nice food being offered but we opted out to reserve our stomach capacity for other food.

当然,简家还有卖很多食物,但我们必须给肚子让点空间给其他食物。

The liverwurst stall 肝肠档
Xiaosan road housed a lot of popular local eatery at Keelung and we were introduced this famous liverwurst by a local. However, as we arrived there we were told the shop was closed for certain time and only will reoepen on August 2015 (our visit was July). The lady boss mistakenly us as locals and asked us to come next time. How sad to miss this out..

孝三路可是卧虎长龙,基隆人还介绍我们这肝肠档。可惜是他们的肝肠要等到2015年8月才有(我们当时是7月去的)。老板娘还误以为我们是台湾人,叫我们下次再来。错过了好伤心哦。。。

We spotted a cat which was rarely seen in chain and a cute hachiko who appeared to be guilty. Okay, pat pat hachiko, do not feel that bad.

意外发现怎么这只猫那么乖,让主人用链绑着呢?还有一只柴犬怎么一直低着头,好像做错事的样子。好吧,拍拍柴犬,别伤心哦~

We actually walked into another side of Keelung city, namely the Zhongzheng district which is separated by a river from Ren'ai district.

我们还走到基隆市的另一区,叫做中正区,被一条河和仁爱区隔开。

We spotted this modest stall with the name "old branded curry noodles". Thus we thought, old brand shop with a significant amount of crowd inside the shop, there ought to be something special here. Furthermore our confidence level rose after seeing some newspaper cuttings on this curry noodles.

走着走着,被这正老牌咖喱面的招牌给吸引了。又看到那么多顾客在店里,肯定有好吃。看到剪报更是让我们信心和好奇心顿时提高。



We ordered a bowl of curry noodles and waited for some time before the bowl of yellowish curry noodles (70 NTD) were served with rich dishes such as prawns, liver, fishballs and vegetables. It was not spicy, and the chef must have used a lot of curry powders as the curry powder was vividly tasted. A normal dish to us perhaps we were used to have a different variant of curry noodles in our hometown.

我们点了一盘咖喱面。等了一会儿,一碗黄色咖喱面(70新台币)上桌。里头有虾,猪肝,鱼丸还有蔬菜,很丰富。其实咖喱面一点都不辣,相信师傅是用咖喱粉来调味的。马来西亚有太多好吃的咖喱面了,所以这盘对我们来说还好而已。

The curry mee really blew our stomach to the maximum and we had to rest for a while before continuing our food journey to Miao Kou market.

这盘咖喱面可把我们的肚子给弄涨了,我们得休息一会儿才继续我们的庙口夜市找吃计划。

We stayed at Yung Feng Hotel for the night at Keelung. It was a satisfactory hotel for 980 NTD per night, inclusive of 5% of VAT and 10% service charge.  Green arrow on the above picture show where the hotel is located.

我们在基隆的永丰旅栈待一晚。简单的旅栈一晚只要价980新台币,还包括消费税和服务费。青色箭头指着我们住的旅栈。

Computer was provided at the lobby area and we leveraged on this opportunity to transfer our photos from SD card to our pendrive while enjoying a cup of coffee, blended fresh from the coffee machine provided. As the consequences, cannot sleep throughout the night!

旅栈前厅设有两架电脑给顾客使用。我们就运用这个措施来把我们的照片从SD卡搬去记忆棒,还一边享受从咖啡机泡的咖啡。那杯咖啡让我们整晚眼睛亮亮,无法入眠。啊!

The bed was decent in size and comfort. Clean water was provided too.

Both washing and drying machines were provided on the top floor. However due to popular demand, we waited till 3am before we could make the laundry! Perhaps it was really destined for us to stay up that late after that cup of coffee.

最顶楼还有洗衣机烘干机。可是因为需求量太高,我们等到早上三点才洗好。也许喝了那杯咖啡,注定要熬夜咯。
