It is convenient to store and eat canned food. Therefore, many Taiwanese would like to keep some canned food at home and eat it as a side dish with porridge.
Black dragon had a taste of sweet potato porridge with all kinds of canned food. First of all, he tried “pickled cucumber (脆瓜)” and he could not stop eating it because it is appetizing. Later on, Black dragon tried “braised eel (紅燒鰻魚)” and “fermented bean curd (豆腐乳)”. However, the flavors of these two do not suit his taste because they are too sweet and salty to him.
Among all the canned food he had tried, “mackerel in tomato sauce (茄汁鯖魚)” is his top choice, and this is observable through his exaggerated expressions. Lastly, he tried “Ba Bao Zhou (八寶粥)”, a sweet & sticky soup made of several beans and grains, as well as “milk with peanuts (牛奶花生)”.
