Mom, I apologize in advance for the double negative because in Taipei you cannot not go to a night market. We opted for the less touristy Tong Hua Jie rather than Shihlin. Special thanks to Nicholas of My Inner Fatty for giving me a heads up on this - a pork sausage sitting in a small rice canoe. How they fashioned a bun from rice, I can't figure out, I just know the combo works.
As you might expect, they grill em up fresh for you, the rice buns at the ready. The girlfriend was doubtful and ordered one for me only to wolf half of it once she got a taste. The first bite was a bit strange, the bun dense but better at handling the sausage juice. As I progressed I became a believer - at least in the half of the dog I managed to get. The toppings made a lot of difference - onions and some kind of greens perhaps with a bit of garlic, but I'm not sure.
