Taiwan Beer and Autumn Crabs

By Shu Min Xu

What do Taiwan and Manhattan both have in common? Both are islands, and both have Taiwan Beer available in bars around the island. Thanks to Paleewong Trading, New York now has access to one of Taiwan’s beer of choice. After spending summers in Taiwan, one gets nostalgic for the frosty taste Taiwan Beer and seafood. With fall rolling in, it is time for autumn crabs, and what better to go with those crabs than Taiwan beer.

Taiwan Beer, yes, that is its official name, is a crisp golden lager brewed since 1919 with barley malt, hops, and local ponlai rice. A slightly maltier version is the Gold Medal label. I remember having grilled squid by the seaside and enjoying a glass of Gold Medal Taiwan Beer. The malty sweetness of the beer complimenting the saltiness of the sea you would taste in every bite.

Crabs were once a poor man’s delicacy. Now, everyone can enjoy the flaky sweetness of crabs. Growing up in Virginia, I had the opportunity of going crabbing on the Chesapeake Bay at the end of summer. Every autumn, there would be a crab festival to celebrate the eminent close of the crabbing season. Lemons, butter, and Old Bay seasoning would perfume the air. The crunching of shells, the cracking of claws, and all of the work that goes into enjoying crab in the fall is always more fun friends. Try out these restaurants Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse or East Harbor Seafood Palace in Brooklyn, Fatty Crab in the West Village, Joe’s Shanghai in Manhattan Chinatown, or Imperial Palace in Flushing.

If you don’t feel like putting that much work into your food, Taiwan Beer goes well with a variety of typical Taiwanese street foods like anything on a stick, soup dumplings, or even fried stinky tofu. If you are ever in Taiwan, stop by the Taiwan Beer Festival held every summer or try the Taiwan Beer Bar and Beer Garden brewpub year round.

  73. Today, considering the fast way of living that everyone is having, credit cards have a big demand throughout the market. Persons throughout every discipline are using credit card and people who are not using the credit card have made up their minds to apply for one. Thanks for revealing your ideas in credit cards./wp-login.php?action=registerIn these days of austerity and also relative panic about taking on debt, many individuals balk resistant to the idea of utilizing a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or pay for any occasion, preferring, instead to rely on the particular tried and also trusted method of making repayment – hard cash. However, if you have the cash there to make the purchase in whole, then, paradoxically, that is the best time to be able to use the credit card for several reasons./wp-login.php?action=registerOne thing is one of the most common incentives for making use of your cards is a cash-back or rebate offer. Generally, you will get 1-5% back in various expenditures. Depending on the cards, you may get 1% returning on most expenditures, and 5% back again on purchases made from convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’. /wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for the strategies presented. One thing I additionally believe is credit cards providing a 0% rate of interest often entice consumers with zero monthly interest, instant approval and easy internet balance transfers, however beware of the real factor that will certainly void your 0% easy streets annual percentage rate and throw one out into the very poor house rapid./wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for your concepts. One thing we have noticed is the fact banks and financial institutions know the dimensions and spending routines of consumers as well as understand that plenty of people max out and about their own credit cards around the trips. They prudently take advantage of this kind of fact and begin flooding your current inbox along with snail-mail box having hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers soon after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that should you be like 98% of all American open public, you’ll rush at the opportunity to consolidate credit debt and shift balances to 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.
