Any traveler privileged enough to visit the vibrant island nation of Taiwan always walks away talking about one thing: the street food. When a traveler and a Taiwanese local start talking, it’s pretty much a guarantee that food will be brought up by either party within the first conversation. Taiwanese love their street food. It’s an art, it’s their passion, it’s their culture.
You can try everything from Chinese cuisine with Japanese influences to truly wacky Western fusions to unique Taiwanese foods that can only be found here. We focus on the small, family-owned food stands in Taipei that keep me coming back year after year. When friends and family visit, or just when the craving becomes too much to resist, I make my way to these places to satisfy the hungry beast within.
