    An old saying once said that “Hunger breeds discontentment”, which indicates nothing is more important than food. Walking on the streets in a small town of Beigang, besides of visiting hundred-year-old temples and historic sites, a wide variety of traditional and distinctive snacks is the charm that lures so many tourists to this place.

    In the early morning, it is hard to believe that some of the stores have already begun to work. Hot and mouth-watering steamed bun is just like a blissful morning call to wake up the early birds. If you are seeking to savour a wide variety of delicacies such as duck rice, thin noodle paste, pan-fried rice cake, glutinous oil rice and stewed pig intestine, the streets near Chaotian Temple are where you should head to. Regardless of desserts or dishes, as long as the stores are selling food, they are usually called as “snack shop”.

    If you think that Beigang people are really fond of delicacies, you are totally right about it. Starting from the early morning, people’s mouth has never stopped moving. Snack shops also have three different operating hours. From 4 am to 11am, it is Beigang people’s breakfast time. Beigang people usually would like to have thin noodle paste, rice soup coupled with stewed intestine, glutinous oil rice and zongzi as breakfast. From noon until 7pm, it is considered as lunch time; sometimes people would like to have famous duck rice, thin noodle with duck and noodle in thick soup. From 7 pm until past midnight, it is supper time for ham knuckle rice, pork chop rice, pork intestine in soup of four herbs. Beigang delicacies take turns to tempt your taste buds in 24 hours a day!

    Glutinous rice food is a very important staple of Beigang people’s diet. Workers require a considerable physical strength for heavy works, so they usually would like to have glutinous rice and zongzi with a strong taste to make them feel satiated.

    Such as thin noodle paste is one of the best known breakfasts in Beigang. White thin noodle served with egg yolk and topped with meat sauce tastes better than you can imagine! Duck rice is a really popular breakfast choice as well. Next time if you have a chance visiting Beigang, don’t forget to savour its traditional snacks!

    【美食】玩樂北港 24小時傳統美食輪番上陣

    區瑜容/雲林縣

    古人說民以食為天,在地的飲食文化,道出當地人早年生活經驗背景。在台灣純樸的北港小鎮中,特色小吃美食多不勝數,除了欣賞百年古蹟廟宇之外,走一趟北港小吃尋飽之旅將會獲得不一樣的體驗。

      騎樓下三、四張桌椅,冒著熱騰騰蒸氣的肉粽飄香撲鼻而來、肩上披戴著白毛巾的老闆,汗流浹背的忙進忙出,鴨肉飯、麵線糊、煎盤粿、米糕、滷大腸……以朝天宮為中心的圓環兩側,正是美食的集散地。在北港,不論甜點類還是鹹食類,只要店內是做吃的,就稱做「點心鋪」。

      說北港人嗜食可不為過,從清晨時分開始,北港人的嘴巴就是沒停過,點心鋪可說是各司其職,早、午、晚三餐店鋪的營業時段各有不同。凌晨四點到中午十一點,是北港人的早餐時間。北港人習慣吃麵線糊、米漿配上滷大腸、油飯、肉粽;中午十二點到晚上七點午餐時間,北港著名的鴨肉飯、鴨骨麵線、肉羹麵飄香街坊;晚餐七點半到凌晨三四點消夜時段,豬腳飯、小排飯、四神湯就亮起了招牌燈,一天24小時美食當前、輪番上陣!

      糯米類食物是北港人飲食習慣中不可或缺的一項。由於早期生活物質缺乏、經濟拮据,粗重工作需要相當大的體力,因此,糯米類的早餐像是滷大腸、油飯、肉粽等重鹹口味、容易感到飽足的飲食,成為一天中最營養豐富的一餐。

      像是麵線糊即是北港特有的在地早餐小吃,在白色的手工麵線上放入蛋黃拌成稠稠的麵線糊,加上肥瘦參半的特製滷肉汁,簡單卻富有營養。另外,由於受到地理位置的影響,北港溪中游的水林、口湖一帶早年有許多養鴨人家,鴨肉飯即成為北港的特色小吃之一。除此之外,北港為花生、芝麻的主要產區不但品質優良且特別香醇,在朝天宮圓環間的大街小巷內花生酥、蔭油、傳統嫁娶大餅等伴手禮店林立。

      現今,傳統小吃已經成為我們垂手可得的幸福,經過好幾十年大環境的轉換過程,北港小吃那勤儉樸實的一味始終令人難以忘懷。北港真材實料、俗擱大碗的美味小吃、濃厚的人情味,始終傳遞著純樸美味的故事,為台灣美食增添一頁風采。﹝攝影/區瑜容﹞
