Jinshan Duck Meat
Here, you must visit the famous duck meat store 金山鴨肉 at least once. In fact we visited here again another 2 times after hehe... Be it weekday or weekend, we always see a queue at the store, and have some difficulties finding seats
This famous duck store 金山鴨肉 is in front of the Guangan Temple 廣安宮.
At the store, just grab any dishes available that you feel like eating that day (other than duck meat). Then bring the dishes across the path to the seating area for your dining. It's like a self-service zichar store except no horfun no yeemin.
You can also order your beverages with the staff in the seating area. When you have completed your meal, do ask the staff for the bill. The store is usually open from 8.30am to 7pm

Jinshan Old Street Snacks
Instead I tried the purple sweet potato 紅心蕃薯 that is baked and coated with malt candy and sesame seeds. Yummy!! The potatoes are warm and the malt candy gives it a crispy crunch. The vendor told us to keep it in the fridge if we have any leftovers at the end of the day - the cold version is supposedly more 'Q' (chewy). Recommended - we bought this again on our subsequent trips back to Jinshan :)
Shitou Mountain Park 獅頭山公園After downing the calories, we decided to go for a walk at Shitou Mountain Park, which is about 5-10 minutes drive away. What I didn't realized when planning the itinerary... was that mountain meant slopes (opps!)
Despite the steep climb on a very hot day, the scaling was worth it! Not just in burning calories, but for the beautiful scenic view. We also saw some adorable statues along the way
