5 Places I Ate at in Taipei


No. 57, Tacheng Street, Datong District, Taiwan 103

A cozy little sandwich shop that the locals frequent for breakfast. They have a menu (with English) with a variety of sandwiches to choose from. I ordered the pork chop, egg, tomato, and lettuce sandwich. It looks a little unassuming at first glance, but don’t let looks fool you because this sandwich was packed with a lot of flavor.


No. 121之1號, Hanzhong Street, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan 108

We were walking around Ximending, stopping by the arcade machines and doing some souvenir shopping when we smelled the delicious aroma of fried chicken and we heard someone singing over a speaker. We followed the line and found this fried chicken stall. Apparently, one of the employees was singing a jingle about fried chicken in different languages to lure in customers 😅

The chicken was well-seasoned without being too salty and it wasn’t overly greasy either. The meat inside was juicy and piping hot since the shop makes this fresh! Sometimes the line stalls because they’re cooking up a fresh batch.

This shop has multiple locations and we saw another location when we were walking around Taipei 101.


No. 292, Chang’an West Road, Datong District, Taipei City, Taiwan 103

Here’s another breakfast spot we stopped by in Taipei! We got turnip cake, fresh soy milk, and a scallion pancake with egg. There are other fillings you can choose from (my sister got ham), but I decided to keep it light with the egg.

The portion looks small, but I wasn’t able to finish my pancake because of how dense everything was. I love carbs and this was a great way to fuel up for the day. Did I mention that I also love fresh soy milk 😍?

東一排骨總店 (Dong Yi Pork Chop Main Store)

100, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, Yanping South Road, 61號

One of the dishes that Taiwan is known for is fried pork chop! We stopped by this restaurant since it was nearby where we were staying and it was delicious 🤤

An order came with a bowl of rice with some pickles and braised pork, a big piece of fatty, juicy, fried pork chop, and a bowl of soup. This was probably the first time I didn’t have enough rice to go with the protein because the pork chop portion was so big.

CUISINE 明吉餐飲美食

No. 34號, Ningxia Road, Datong District, Taipei City, Taiwan 103
Google Maps

We stopped by here on a whim because the Ningxia night market was super crowded and we wanted a place to sit down to eat. This place did not disappoint! The broth was not too rich but still flavorful and had the a good amount of acidity. The noodles were fresh, chewy, and absorbed the flavor from the broth. To be honest, I’m drooling from just thinking of the noodles from Taipei because they were so good 🤤

  10. Taiwan has the best food!!! Whenever I visit with family, I always try to convince everyone to eat at night markets every night :3 Not the healthiest option, but I’m only in Taiwan once a year!!! Ugh I miss Taiwanese food so much. I live on carbs. Bubble tea and popcorn chicken every day are necessities. I also love oyster pancake :3 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  • Happy Mother’s Day to the most badass woman in my life. No amount of words can fully portray how much love and respect I have for my mom. My mom has sacrificed so much and worked so hard to raise me into who I am today. When I was a kid, my uncles told me to grow up and marry someone rich. My mom, on the other hand, told me to become rich myself. Don’t worry mom, I’m still working on it.
  • Forever a wallflower 🌼
  • We went to Ashikaga because it’s always been my mom’s dream to see the wisteria gardens in Japan. We went to Kawachi Fuji Garden last week but we were a bit too early since they weren’t in full bloom yet. Fortunately, we got a second chance today at Ashikaga! This park was gorgeous, so be prepared to be spammed with a ton of photos from there *_*
  • Feeling like royalty at the Osaka Castle
  • Celebrating six years of friendship 🤗! It’s amazing to see how much each of us have grown since we first met. We might be getting old, but we’re still young at heart. (The picture on the right is us from six years ago 😂🙈)
  • My external hard drive glitched and it deleted all of my photos from Vietnam that were taken on my Sony 😭. Fortunately, I still have some photos I took on my phone, including this one of me looking smug a f in Nình Bình. Btw, I immediately ordered a Samsung SSD external hard drive to make sure this doesn’t happen again with other data in the future. (If anyone else has any recommendations for a SSD hard drive, let me know!)
