“Traditionally Baked Cake” is made with fresh milk. The rich egg pancake aroma wafts from the oven when taken out. It may look plain in appearance, but the silky texture is unforgettable. It is a local souvenir not to be missed and an extremely popular cuisine in Tamsui with a long waiting line.
The must try local snack “A-Gei” is transliterated partly from the Japanese word of “Oiled Tofu”. Prepared by emptying the center of the Tofu, adding fried clear noodles and soaking in marinade, then sealed off with fish mince and steamed. Sweet sour sauce or secret recipe of the store is poured on top before serving.

Pingxi Station is located at Lingjiao Village of Pingxi District and was known as "Shidi Station" in its early days. When heading towards Jingtong Station, the train will pass a steel bridge that crosses Sankeng River. Looking downwards, you can see Pingxi and Shidi Settlement. You arrive at Zhonghua Street once you leave the station. Walk along the gentle slope downwards and you can reach the old street and the intersection of Zhonghua Street and Pingxi Street. The location of the train station is between Pingxi and Lingjiao. It occupies the high ground and you can look downwards to the Keeling River. The branches of the old trees by the gate of the train station are filled with birds seeking food. If you are lucky enough, you might witness their agile flight of soaring down from the sky to hunt.
