淡水- AMAZING Taiwanese Home Cooking at Large Footprint Restaurant (大腳印). The restaurant 大腳印 is this large, hidden and homey restaurant near the 淡水 MRT station. We went to it because my parents had heard it was pretty good from some people who lived in the area but had warned all of us of a long line and boy, were they right. The space is humongous and packed to the brim with every wooden stall, table and chair with someone and something on or in it. The Jann Clan were all starving and everything smelled and looked beyond amazing so we were really lucky because just as we walked in a table of 4 had just vacated! Lucky us. Large Footprint Restaurant (大腳印) served classic Taiwanese home cooking dishes that came out hot and fresh right before our eyes. Check out some of my other EatwithJess posts in Taipei, Taichung and more!!!
This sizzling prawn dish was to die for. The sauce was sizzling and oh so flavorful. I drenched the fresh prawn meat into that killer sauce and made sure I slurped up all the juicy sauce. The garlic was not spared in preparing this dish which made it taste even better.
Next up were these not so average looking clams.Which let me just say- do not judge a book by it’s cover because this book (clams) was
sodkfdslakfheliukfhad DELICIOUS. OMG. I can’t even type. The clams were plump, juicy and fresh. That sauce…..I have no idea what they put in it…but it was soooooo freaking good. The most addictive sauce, ever. I poured a giant helping of that amazing sauce into my bowl so I could slowly enjoy it in all it’s glory. Crack. Only thing is when you do what I did- it becomes really salty.
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! <3 Definitely left a large footprint on my stomach.
So fresh!! Even the vegetable stir fry was so bomb. The mix of red chili peppers, garlic and their special seasoning….was just all on point!
White Pork with Garlic sauce. 蒜泥白肉. The tender slices of white pork meat were drenched in a delicious garlic sauce that had a great spicy kick to it.
Vegetable stir fry with lots and lots of bacon! This veggie dish was extremely tasty but was a tad too salty (and spicy!)
This whole steamed fish in lemon sauce was DIVINE! The fish meat was beyond fresh, ridiculously tender, and super fragrant. I loved everything about it. Again, I practically slurped up the entire plate of the flavorful lemon sauce.
Such an epic meal in Tam Shui!! Seriously, do yourselves a favor and go try out this place if you are ever visiting the Tam Shui area. <3
