This is the first Taiwanese food that I ate when I was in Taipei. It’s a common snack in Taipei and this one has 3 outlets in Taipei alone… maybe more now :). 大肠包小肠 literally means big sausage wrap small sausage… But it’s actually a pork sausage wrapped with a sausage-shaped glutinous rice thingy.
I followed the BBQ aroma from just outside the ground floor of my hotel, and found this little stall in the middle of a small alley. The stall owner boast the sausages are made from wild boars from Wulai (乌来) which is several miles south of Taipei. Claims to be aboriginal food also but I doubt it and ruled it as more of a gimmick than anything else. I’m a fan of Taiwanese sausages so I ordered one with the black pepper topping option.
Taste: The Taiwanese sausages back home in Singapore taste different from the ones in Taiwan. The rice is tasteless but sausage is pretty ok.
Portion: Quite generous with the toppings.
Price: TWD50 for one sausage with the rice roll. Buy 10 get 1 free. Sausage only is TWD35 each, buy 3 for TWD100.
RTE: It’s a snack, so easy to just walk past, grab one and gobble down!
