Recommended Posts

just got back from taipei... shopping - eh, not much, but the nightlife... all good!

i think taipei just moved up to my #1 asian city for a weekend getaway.

taiwan as a country is quite beautiful. taipei as a city is hilariously ugly. but there's so much to love that it's easy to look pass the dilapidation.

You kidding me? Gongguan has tons of good places to eat. On the top of my head, there's a street behind Roosevelt road with a bunch of Thai resturants. Just stroll around the backalleys adjacent to the main streets. Lots of resturants around that area. It would help a lot of you have a local buddy to take you around the good places to eat. Nightmarket food is ehhhh don't eat that stuff to often.

You can also check out the area around Zhongshan (one MRT stop north of Taipei Main station) for more good resturants. Then of course there's the district behind the old Sogo Zhongxiao department store that has all sorts of good resturants.

During my summer internship, I've eaten at a ton of good resturant type places but I haven't been to many authentic mom and pop resturant/ eateries.

It's cuz of the humidity and culture of dirtiness (slowly catching up to Japan standards though)

Gongguan food is just OK.

I live really near it...

Everything else you named is legit though.

I've been here for a month now, a bit more in the know now.

you sure? for me those night market and roadside stalls are KICK ASS. didnt bother to venture into those restaurants when i was there. was too full just from walking down the streets. hahaha. taiwan food is not about the restaurants man. its about the authentic 'xiao chi' or 'small eateries' when translated directly.

ah, that.

I haven't been that that particular place, or even noticed it for that matter, because I completely avoid western styled fast food.

I've had those kind of fries in a street vendor in Taichung though... fucking excellent. I know they're pretty legit!
