Taipei Food Guide: 10 Dishes You Need To Try

‘Have you eaten?’ The words are used as a greeting here, and the answer is always ‘yes’, as there’s just too much eating that can be done. Taiwan offers the range of Chinese cuisines, some of the best Japanese outside Japan and a full house of local specialties from Tainan milkfish and Taipei beef noodles down to indigenous barbecued wild boar.

Night markets around the island serve endless chaotic feasts of snacks including their famous stinky tofu, steamed dumplings, oyster omelettes, wagyu cubes, shrimp rolls and shaved ice. And when you’re thirsty, you can look forward to the juice from the freshest local fruits, local craft beer, aromatic teas and, in a surprising twist, Asia’s best gourmet coffee.
