If you’re wanting some unalduterated Taiwanese snack-like food, then you’re looking at the right spot. If you can cope with the crowds of XiMen or just want a short walk from Taipei Main Station then this ticks the boxes. Expect to be a bit cramped inside, but expect to eat for 2 under $200, easily.

Tourist Hot Spot – CiSheng Temple, DaDaoCheng, DiHua Street, WenChang Temple.
Type of food – Taiwanese generational food
Booking required – Not needed.
Price – $100-$400 per main dish.

Recently moved out to Taiwan and don't know how to order at restaurants? I got you sorted. Can read some characters but still don't quite know what you're ordering? I got you sorted. This site has been developed to help people who can't speak or read Mandarin. I use pinyin, characters and English to talk about food ordering, and how you can do it at specific restaurants. If you like it, then give me a shout! Ash.
