We start with one of our favourite noodles soups in the world TAIWANESE BEEF NOODLE SOUP at Liu Shandong which received Bub Gourmand recognition from Michelin this year. The eatery is really popular with the locals and we can see why! The noodles are bouncy and thick and the beef is melt in your mouth. The beef broth is clean tasting and has a rich beef flavour. An array of condiments are on the tables in which to adjust your noodle soup to your own taste. We add fermented black beans, pickled mustard greens and some chilli oil to ramp up the flavours and spice. Highly recommended!

We move on to our next snacks- GUA BAO and BUBBLE MILK TEA. Both stalls are extremely popular and are within a couple of metres of each other. The gua bao is a steamed pork belly bun- at Lan Jia it is made up of half fatty pork and half lean pork. Stuffed into a fluffy steamed bun together with crushed peanuts, sugar and pickled mustard greens, this is one of the best gua bao we’ve ever eaten. Chen Sang Ding’s bubble milk tea is the best thing to wash down the gua bao. Contrary to its name, this stall’s version doesn’t contain tea but is made up of fresh milk and warm tapioca boba that are cooked in thick, sweet brown sugar syrup. It’s sweet, fun to eat/drink and very rich. Both stalls are well worth a visit!

Our next snack is one of our favourite to eat when in Taiwan- stinky tofu! It gets a bad reputation what with its stink but its smell is far worse than its taste! We eat deep fried stinky tofu stuffed with chilli and soy sauce with pickled cabbage on the side. It’s an amazing snack and the stinky tofu has a beautiful flavour.

We finish with one of Taiwan’s most beloved dishes- lu rou fan. Available at almost every eatery, braised pork on rice is addictive! Jin Feng is a lu rou fan powerhouse- white rice topped with a ladle of braised pork bits and fatty soy sauce. This is one delicious bowl you have got to eat when in Taipei!
