Taipei Must Try

The Taipei Must try food that must not be missed when you visit! We happened to have a Pre-wedding Photoshoot and visited Taipei just a few days, I can only say Taipei I miss you!! It should be my 6th time to Taiwan and never get tired of the Taiwan spirit, love how friendly Taiwanese are.

This might be my 4th time staying CityInn Hotels, I can say they always achieve top-notch service and they even remember my name. I was greeted everytime when I am back to the hotel from outside after a long time of exploring and shopping. Not only that, this Cityinn Hotel Plus Ximending Branch location is super convenient and nearby there are also some good eats.

So convenient when you stay at Ximending, just few mins across to the Ximending street from the hotel.

While looking around Taiwan's beautiful fruits don't forget to get super cute special edition "EASY CARD" for travelling with their public transport. This time we got the Rilakkuma edition from the EasyCard machine, you can also get at convenient stores but may be other designs.

Just nearby our Hotel, our first meal was the Giant King of Wanton "Dumplings" filled with vegetables and meat at Chao ji 趙記菜肉餛飩大王. Do not order the 中碗 8個 "means Medium Bowl comes with 8 pieces of dumplings", because the size of the dumpling is huge!! That is why I called it Giant... The staff there actually warned me to cancel 1 bowl of noodles as the portion was too huge and she was afraid just the 2 of us might not be able to finish it. It is so true, I would suggest if you were to try get 1 bowl to share and order their delicious noodles.

This was their 肉燥面 "Minced Pork Noodle", simply delicious.

Next, nearby the Taiwanese famous beef noodle 桃源街老王記牛肉麵店, they have the spicy and non spicy version. If you like more rich go for the spicy " and if you are like me loves lighter soup go for the non spicy it was superb. I will definitely go back again for the lighter soup and matches so well with the beef.

After a good walk at Taipei 101, we head back to Ximending for the best Bubble Tea, Xing Fu Tang 幸福堂. The Boba pearls are hand-made chewing sensationally addictive. To be honest, I am not a bubble tea person but this was so good! Xing Fu Tang is located just at the Ximending central most district and outstanding that everyone can see. Long queues occur non stop even on weekdays. Never not to miss the Taiwan most popular must try Ay Chung Rice Noodles 阿宗麵線, enjoyed everytime when I visit Taipei.

Yong He Soy Milk 永和豆漿, is the place you have your breakfast Soy Milk and maybe their rice wrap with so many ingredients. Not forgetting to recommend you the not so appealing "Three Generations of Rou Lu Meat Rice" 三代肉羹卤肉饭, it is just beside our hotel and the rice bowl was simply delicious fill with fat happiness. Sometimes consuming a bit of fattiness can provide you a moment of happy tummy satisfaction.

We also tried Ximen Yung Ho Soya Milk, not a bad choice for quick bites and I personally prefer the food more than the Long famous Yong He Soy Milk which were too oily. Overall for recommendations to try, get their Mango Shaved Ice. The shop is merged so it was actually called Ximen Mango Shaved Ice 西門町芒菓冰.
