There is always something to do in Taipei. It is a city that never sleeps. On weekends, take a walk around any suburb and there is bound to be something happening at a park or on the sidewalk or in a parking lot.
On a Saturday morning, we walked down the road to our little village near the Beitou Hot Springs and in the park nearby was a few covered stalls with a lot of noise coming from them. Of course, we had to go have a look.
Among stalls of fresh fruit and vegetables, handicrafts and information on various things in Taipei, there was a stall making traditional mochi.
We first had mochi in Penang but never found out exactly what it was made of or how. Here in Taipei, we found out! Check out our video below...
