Chilis' menu: Some pretty expensive appetizers. . .those prices are in New Taiwanese dollars, but it can be shocking when you first look the menu and see $320 for cheese fries

    I know I shouldn’t be surprised having grown up Taiwanese-American, but I just threw up in my mouth when I saw the picure of the asparagus juice.

    What great pictures and sites of Taiwan! Looks like you guys are enjoying every minute. I’m not as brave when it comes to new foods, so Chili’s would look good no matter what the cost, thankfully it’s only about $9US. And I agree with Judy, the asparagus juice wasn’t looking too good for me either. LOL
    Have a Great time – can’t wait to hear more of your adventures!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing so much with us 🙂 I can’t wait to go back and get my Jeremiah 🙂

    I can’t imagine asparagus juice being a good thing. I’d try the green bean cake. Shopping at a grocery and trying new things is such an adventure.

    Rebekah says that she’s glad you don’t have to use the squatty potty!
