    Seaweed Jelly

    Seaweed jelly is made with agar, a water plant unique to the Northeast Coast. February to April in the lunar calendar is its harvest months. Agar must be cooked so that it can turn into jelly for the gelatin it contains. In fact, agar is so rich in water soluble dietary fiber, gelatin and polysaccharide that it can be used for food therapy. Of course, fruits and other flavorings can be added to the jelly. Seaweed jelly is al-dente and smooth - a perfect, cooling dessert for a hot summer day!

    Green Onion Pastry

    The round green onion pastry of Yilan not only smells great but is also crispy and puffy. To make it, first, make plant oil-based doughs and fill in locally produced green onions. Sprinkle some five-seasoning powder and just a little salt on them. Then, flatten the doughs without squeezing the onions out. All these must be done manually. Finally, bake the pastry until it creates a golden crust. See how crispy and puffy it is, not greasy at all! This is a delicious must-buy for locals and visitors alike.
