#AGGYINTAIWAN : TOP 10 MUST-EAT STREET FOOD IN TAIPEI, TAIWAN


HUHU Never expected such a post to come from me right right right?!? 😝

But being in TAIPEI for 5 days, I must say.... the food there left the deepest impression on me throughout this trip.

And before I go down to the nitty gritty details of my trip/itinerary, here are the TOP 10 FOOD THAT ARE IN MY MUST-EAT LIST for those of you especially planning ahead for your Taiwan trip!

NUMBER 10 :

AH ZONG MEE SUA


Funnily enough, this dish originated from China actually, but Taiwan made it popular I must say.
For me, I LOOOOOOOOVE IT with extra vinegar!

So good.... as the wheat flour noodles are thin and cut short, it's a promise that no forks or chopsticks are needed.

The most famous stall selling Mee Sua will be AH ZONG MEE SUA.

Nearest MRT Station : Xi Men Ding
Price : NT45

NUMBER 9 :

WANG JI RICE DUMPLING & FISHBALL RADISH SOUP

I swear this was such a gem / good find!
We were high from alcohol/clubbing and needed something to warm our tummies.
Wanted to head to 7-11 for a cup noodle each and ended up stumbling upon this humble-looking eatery at the corner of the street.


The hubby tried the meat rice dumpling while I had the fishball radish soup.
Both dishes has a very homey feel to it, especially the soup.

It's not the saltish kind and you can literally taste the sweetness of radish with every spoonful.
I don't have much to say about the dumpling because I'm not a huge fan of dumplings but the hubby loved it.

Eatery name : WANG JI MEAT RICE DUMPLING 
Nearest MRT Station : Xi Men Ding
Price : NT45 (Rice dumpling), NT60 (Fishball Radish Soup)

NUMBER 8 :

FRIED MUSHROOMS


Okok, to be fair, this photo does not do this dish justice at all.
There are two sizes to choose from, small or big.

The types of mushrooms in this dish consists of :
Enoki Mushrooms
Oyster Mushrooms
French Horn Mushrooms

Every piece is fried on the spot to crispy perfection, especially the enoki mushrooms.

REALLY MUST TRY!!!😍

*This dish can be found at almost any night market in Taiwan.

Price : NT55 (small size), NT100 (big size)

NUMBER 7 :

BUBBLE TEA



Invented in the 1980s in Taichung, this is a must-have everytime when I'm in Taiwan!
Choose from a wide range of teas that are either fruit or milk based or even ice blended drinks and add your favourite toppings, either jellies/chewy tapioca balls or even nata de coco!

*This can be found almost everywhere in Taipei.

Price : NT20 and up

--

NUMBER 6 :

GRILLED QUAIL EGGS


I am a fan of quail eggs so this has to be in my top ten hehe.
Love how the outside is slightly grilled to crispy perfection but inside still taste like how quail eggs should.

There are a few sauces to choose from too!

*This dish can be found at almost any night market in Taiwan.

Price : NT20 (a stick of 3), NT50 (3 sticks of 3)

NUMBER 5 :

FORMOSA BRAISED PORK RICE


Three years ago when we came to Taipei, we googled and found this was a must-try.
We left feeling utterly impressed and happy that we actually made it that far to try it.
(At that point of time there was only one branch (I think) at Wu Fen Pu district.)

Three years later we went back to the branch at Wu Fen Pu again but this time round we were slightly disappointed, though it was still worth the calories.

Another must-try on my list! 😙

Price : NT40 (a bowl of pork braised rice)
Other dishes - prices vary

NUMBER 4 :

OH MY GOSH.

The husband and I bought one to share one rainy night at Xi Men Ding and we regretted the very moment we took the last bite.

"WHY NEVER BUY ONE EACH?!?!"😱😱😱
This was what we thought and it left us sulking throughout the night.

Tried to go back to the same stall the next night but no luck - it was raining so heavily and we simply gave up.

Didn't see this dish at Shi Lin / RaoHe / Shi Da night markets though, but googled and saw it at Ning Xia night market.

Anyone has any idea?😳

Nearest MRT Station : Xi Men Ding (late at night only)
Price : NT40

NUMBER 3 :

MUAH CHEE


If you think this is the same as those sold at Singapore's Pasar Malams.....

YOU ARE SO WRONG!

These ones come with fillings and the muah chee is super muah.... (hahahaha okay I mean super chewy kind!)

There's three kinds, peanut, sesame and red bean filling to choose from.
If you order a takeaway box, the kind lady will give you a packet of grounded peanuts!

MAJOR LOVE!

Nearest MRT Station : Xi Men Ding
Price : NT30 (small plastic packet), NT50 (box packet)

NUMBER 2 :

TAIWAN BEEF CUBES






We had this almost every other night - yes this is how good it actually was.
The beef cubes are cooked lightly and to perfection.
As they are torched, the outer layer is often crispy while inside is thick and chewy.

I highly reccomend you to order a double set as the quantity is more accounted for for it's price.

*This dish can be found at almost any night market in Taiwan.

Price : NT100 (single size), NT200 (double size)

NUMBER 1 :

SMELLY TOFU

THIS DISH STINKS, I SWEAR. 😱😱😱

But it is SO DARN GOOD.
I have no idea what made this dish taste like paradise.
Maybe it's the mix of fermented tofu + pickled vegetables and that red chilli sauce.
😍😍😍

I CAN EAT THIS ANY TIME OF THE DAY LITERALLY 
*This dish can be found at almost any night market in Taiwan.

Price : NT50
