One of the most memorable street food we had in Taiwan was grilled Taiwanese sausage served with fresh garlic. Yes, you heard me, the fatty pork sausages were eaten straight up with raw spicy garlic. The sausages were sweet and salty and they were a good match with the spicy and pungent pieces of garlic. The wild boar loved it to bits. You usually get them with cloves of garlic in the night markets, while in restaurants, you get them with thin slices of garlic. I prefer the latter as eating one whole clove of raw garlic with each piece of sausage is just too potent for me.
And of course, I prefer fried garlic.
