Taiwan - Where to Eat! Part II

January 08, 2019

Hello loves!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I was back in my favourite country this past December'18 and so excited to share with you all the foods I've been eating during the 10 days I was there. I'm still shocked at how much food my stomach could handle in one day! I'm so proud of myself haha 😆

Let's check out all the yummy foods I've been indulging in Taiwan:

PS. Read my Taiwan food part 1 HERE.

Note that some places are open for both lunch and dinner but I just split it up according to the times I went since the menu items could be different.

Breakfast

Not any special shop but Taiwanese breakfast places are my favourite!

No. 434號, Yuanshan Road, Zhonghe District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 235


Lunch

No. 36號, Section 1, Zhongxiao West Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100
(Taipei Main Station)


100, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, Section 1, Zhongxiao West Road, 49號B1
(Taipei Main Station)



Gustoso $$$
No. 331, Section 1, Dunhua South Road, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106
(Daan Station, Madison Hotel)

This is a half buffet half a-la-carte style lunch. You order your main dish and there is a salad and dessert bar as well as soup/charcuterie/cheese stations for all you can eat! It's a nice a quiet place to get together and chat with friends.




Cash City Shabu Shabu $$ (Chain restaurant)
No. 803, Zhongzheng Road, Zhonghe District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 235

There are multiple locations in Taipei and this place is not so much for the quality but great to enjoy a Japanese shabu shabu style hot pot at an affordable price!



Long Sushi $$$$
No. 60, Section 3, Zhongshan Road, Zhonghe District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 235

They have different price sets starting at NT$2000 up until NT$4500 (I believe). I got the NT$2000 set because I didn't know if it was worth it or not since it was quite pricey.

While I was there, I wish he just kept the sushi coming and felt that it wasn't enough, but looking back at all the dishes, I feel that for the price of NT$2000 (around CAD$80) it's quite impressive. The quality is definitely there.










Dinner

No. 47號, Lane 308, Guangfu South Road, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106

Creative Korean restaurant



No. 6-1號, Lane 137, Yanji Street, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106

We both got the non spicy version.


No. 15-6, Nanyang Street, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100
(Taipei Main Station)



No. 6, Minyou Street, Zhonghe District, New Taipei City, Taiwan 235



110, Taiwan, Taipei City, Xinyi District, Lane 50, Yixian Road, 20號

Pairing with your hotpot, you can choose congee (they make it using the soup afterward), udon and something else (can't remember haha).




Bubble tea & beverages

50 Lan $ (Chain)

You can find this in probably every corner in Taipei. It's a must drink when I'm in Taiwan. My favourite classic bubble tea!

Bars

"Speakeasy" style bar at the back of a tailor. You need to find the passcode to get in! Solve the mystery and the door will open to the back. Hint: you gotta use the telephone! Make sure to get a reservation, especially if you're going to be there on a weekend.



Closet $$
No. 15號, Lane 101, Section 4, Zhongxiao East Road, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106

Another "Speakeasy" style bar. You gotta pick the right answer and use the key to open the door!

Make sure to get a reservation beforehand or go straight when they open at 5:30pm.

Drinks are pretty mediocre but the concept is nice.




No. 3號, Lane 160, Yanji Street, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106

Another "speakeasy" (yes I've been obsessed with Speakeasys in taiwan). This is at the back of the Donburi restaurant. The owner is a very nice New-Yorker! They specialist in Gin & Tonics which is pretty cool.
