Shilin Night Market: Lemon Jelly Drinks




I was walking around the food area of the Shilin Night Market when I saw this drink stand. I was quite intrigued on how she presents her drinks with big fruits floating on the side. 

To kill the curiosity  I bought one, I took a sip but still I couldn't identify what was it, so I just asked the lady what is she selling. She explained that it was a lemon flavored jelly drink and those big green things floating on the side are lemon fruits!

They are much like Gulaman drinks that you can find any where here in Manila. But the only difference is that it's flavored with real lemon which we don't usually get to taste here in city.  

I suggest buy a big cup and then go around the market! It would be a great refreshing match for all of Shilin's street food

  4. Idol!!! Mucus ka jan. :p Anyway, have you turned your travel blog into a foodie blog? Parang puro food ang fini-feature mo eh. :)) You know, if we're entrepreneurial, puede natin gayahin yang drink na yan and set up a stall in a mall. Ano tara business tayo!

    Btw, I think I'll remove my link sa comex na to. Pansin ko, ako lang ang may novela na entry, complete with historical background pa. The other entries are super short! Na-shy ako bigla, hahahaha!

  12. I saw this in Taiwan in many night markets but I didn't try coz I'm a bit sensitive with water (got to be the bottled water I recognized or soda esp. sprite only). but i tried the frozen taho and sticky rice!
