Large Snails Are A Dinner Specialty
Northern Taiwan is known for it’s heavy rainfall which produces a fertile ground for land snails. Land snails can be larger than the other common snails and are often gathered up after a heavy rain and sauteed. Then they are commonly served with basil and black beans. The dark brown snails are larger, and delicious cooked with various seasoning and served with a typical soup made of dried cuttlefish and succulent bamboo shoots. Sometimes a side dish of sauteed crab claws sauteed in garlic, basil, and bamboo shoots is served on the side.
Any one of the above can also be served alone in the small stalls and night markets. In this setting they become one of the “little eats” that makes Taiwan famous. This is much more common for the Taiwanese, as they prefer to graze their way through the day, rather than sit down to three meals a day.
