【看CP學英文】台灣身為美食王國,許多外籍遊客到訪一定會嘗試珍奶、雞排等道地小吃,但到底哪一樣最能擄獲老外的心呢?近日,一名老外在美國論壇Reddit詢問網友最愛的台灣美食,引發熱烈討論。

Taiwan is known as Asia’s food kingdom. Many foreign visitors traveling to Taiwan will try local snacks, such as pearl milk tea, chicken cutlet, and the likes.

Which one will capture the hearts of most foreigners though? 

Recently, a social media user posted a photo to Reddit, asking about their favorite Taiwanese food, attracting much attention from other users.   

這名網友於周二貼文,內文問道:「你們最愛哪一樣台灣料理?」原PO附上一張台式蝦仁蛋炒飯,吊起許多人胃口,吸引不少人留言回應。  

The social media user posted a photo of egg fried rice with shrimps on Tuesday, asking, ” What’s your favorite Taiwanese Dish?”

老外網友的答案非常廣泛,各項經典美食都有其擁護者,有人提出蚵仔煎、麵線、鹹水鴨加薑、竹筒飯以及三杯雞。  

The answers from foreign users varied, with supporters of all the classics, including oyster omelet, noodles strings, salted duck with ginger, bamboo rice and three-cup chicken.  

其中一名外國網友列出一連串美食後表示:「根本不可能只選一樣。」而其中,鹹水鴨加薑引起其他網友共鳴分享道,這道料理在國外並沒有受到很多關注,但絕對是台灣最好吃料理之一。  

One of the social media users listed a long list of Taiwanese dishes and said, “Not possible to just name one.”  

Among the various dishes, the salted duck with ginger has been chosen by many users with one saying that the dish has not received much attention from broad, but it’s definitely one of the finest dishes Taiwan has to offer.

除此之外,牛肉麵、牛肉湯也獲得不少外國人支持,其中一名網友大推台南「牛肉火鍋」,更誇張地大讚台南牛肉是「一種藝術形式」。  

Also, many have suggested beef noodles and beef soup. One has strongly recommended Tainan “beef hot pot” and praised beef in Tainan as “an art form.” 

I’d have to say beef hotpot from Tainan, nowhere else do they execute it as well as the folks in Tainan. It is an art form.

每位網友各有所好,每個人都列出不只一樣美食,可見台灣美食國度的封號並非浪得虛名。  

Each of them has their own preferences and has listed more than one cuisine, which shows that Taiwan has been true to its reputation.
