Take a Shot of Snake Blood in Snake Alley
The Huaxi Night Market ((華西街觀光夜市), also known as 'Snake Alley' is famous in the country for selling various snake-based goods such as medicine, soup, and wine. It's best known, however, for the shots of snake blood that one can take. Pictured, from left to right, are snake blood (mixed with liquor), snake bile, and snake venom 'antidote'. Of course, there are plenty of other traditional Taiwanese dishes available for the less adventurous. If you'd like to see somebody actually drink the snake blood shot, you need not visit Taipei. Just check out the video that Kevin Wu (who provided the photo) posted on his blog.
