Alishan herb infused rice cake granny 阿里山草粿阿媽
Things always taste better if there's a story behind it. This 草粿 (herb infused rice cake) is made by a 77 year old woman in Alishan. She is the grandmother of the owner of the B&B we stayed at. Every day, she makes these rice cakes, puts them in her Toyota SUV and drives to B&B's in the area to sell them. When we arrived at our B&B, we were treated some. They were freshly steamed and just delicious!
