Join us for an INSANE street food tour in Taiwan's capital city and street food HEAVEN: Taipei!!! We are going to take you away from the tourist crowds to show you the BEST Taiwanese foods and restaurants you've never seen before! Today, we are going to eat what the LOCALS love to eat! Let's go! 加油 !
We start our epic day of eating and exploring at an UNKNOWN restaurant for the most incredible bowl of braised pork rice 滷肉饭 and tofu for breakfast. Come early, this place gets PACKED! Next, we check out a beautiful temple, Xingtian Temple 行天宫 to see Taiwanese culture in action. This temple banned the use of burning incense to combat air pollution. Awesome! Then, we take you to a spot where old concepts meet new design: Addiction Aquatic Development. Here you can have get an incredibly CHEAP deal on sushi, sashimi, grilled seafood and MORE! We also checked out the live seafood area while we were there to have TUNA. Now that we're SUPER full, we take a rest at Lin An Tai Ancestral Home, a peaceful museum and garden where you can observe one of the best preseved Chinese homes in all of Taiwan! For dessert (of course) we head to a shop that specializes in Wheel Cakes 红豆餅, one with red bean and one with custard. And how could you resist?! They are so CHEAP and FRESH! To end our CRAZY day of eating, we head to a Michelin recommended (bib gourmand) street food stall that fries meat 烤肉! We ordered beef & clams, Taiwan-style! As a tip, wash it all down with a Taiwan beer! Taipei is a food-lovers DREAM come true!
