Wherever I travel, I always prefer to find a local rice shop to enjoy a delicious meal. The first is to eat well, but also to know how the local family’s daily meals are like. Taipei is no exception, no matter how attractive the street snacks are, let’s have a meal at Lu Sang Yi Lan to complete the trip to Taipei.

The restaurant processes extremely diverse dishes, braised pork rice or stir-fried vegetable dishes will always be called during meals. Oyster stir-fried with oyster sauce is equally attractive, I see that diners quite favor boiled chicken and boiled pork liver, both of these dishes when served with white rice, the result is excellent, there’s nothing better. I think you should spend some time to try a family meal at Lu Sang Yi Lan, so that besides experiencing street food, we also understand more about Taiwanese culture.

Taipei must try restaurants: Shaved ice at Taro King
At first glance the list of what to eat in Taipei above, there is no dessert yet. But never mind, in a snack paradise like Taipei, it will surely has this. After eating greasy food, you should try super cool shaved ice with extremely rich topping to help you purify and stop tired of salty food. Similar to the Bingsu we usually eat but the shaved ice at Taro King has its own way of processing. Black sesame mochi or soybean pudding is only served during winter time. So if you have the opportunity to visit, remember to try these 2 dishes.
One portion of shaved ice will be enough for 2 people, note that if you eat it quickly, the ice cream with shaved ice will not melt. If you order too much, you will not eat it in time. My personal experience is call enough, when you finish your portion, continue order. Therefore, you will not afraid of wasting but worth the money.

Dango steamed buns and combo meals at Rilakkuma Cha-Ya
The cuteness from the interior to the presentation of dishes has helped Rilakkuma Cha-Ya restaurant stand in the hearts of the devotees who “love the color pink and hate the deception”. This is a joke, but if you have the opportunity to try the 3-color Dango steamed bun and a standard serving here, you will understand more about Japan’s cultural influence on Taiwanese. Although the flavor is improved to suit the taste of the locals but still retains the “Japanese spirit” in each dish. It will not be hard for you to realize this.
