Gotta try the ice cream popiah for those who havent eaten it before

As usual price increase over the past 2 yrs *sigh*

Can eat the one at jiufen
Or xmd(push cart type, so u might not see it if the police are ard)
raohe or ningxia nm have also, cant remember which liao

For those who like to eat some tw traditional food.. Can find those small eateries(like at the sides of nightmarkets)..
麻油面线/鸡 can try
药炖排骨 also not bad

Fried chicken dun eat the hotstar one le.. The chicken so thin, batter so much, just eat once can liao
Other types of fried chicken like the 艋甲 fried chicken(the guy artist nono is a partner boss) is nice
There's also another one nightmarkets will have one is 恶魔鸡排, also quite nice
Then got another franchise(usually is shop and not nightmarket stall) also quite nice.
The chicken meat is thick and juicy, batter flavour is nice and not dry like hotstar one..

Wat else......

Deep fried milk can try, its interesting

The grill mua chee at xmd also can try, choose the flavour u like, it'll be nice. Personally i recommend sesame, or condense milk if u got a sweet tooth
For the 艋甲(Manga?) Fried chicken, please don't queue for it when you're really hungry or in bad weather. Okay to be more precise, avoid the outlet at xmd. They're pretty much using the 饥饿营销(hunger marketing?) Method.

Went there 2 mths ago, I was 2nd in queue and ordered as per normal. There wasn't anyone else queuing or waiting around at that moment. So I thought it'll be pretty quick(shilin NM and Raohe was pretty speedy).

So I stood outside and waited. Then I started seeing 2 other different groups of customers ordering right after me. After waiting for slightly more than 5 mins, I saw that they're packing the Fried items into the paper bags but they're not calling for our queue number. They kinda packed it and kept it one side, while all these is happening about 1 or 2 more new customers head up for ordering.

After 10 to 15mins, u can see that the "crowd" is building up outside. Then that's when they start to call out ALL THE FIRST FEW GROUPS OF CUSTOMERS AT THE SAME TIME.

The chicken cutlet is really thick and juicy. But perhaps try to get it from other places other than xmd...

It's white bitter gourd mix with a little honey, taste a little bitter only.
Ya sorry its honey, which I mistakenly stated as syrup. But the honey helps a lot with the taste. I went to Keelung NM and bought the white bittergourd juice there and ask for no honey... regret max.

Maybe the chicken was too hot to hold or eat, and hence they placed it at one side to let it cool down first? If not it may be dangerous for customers who may just pick it up and dig in unknowingly.

I employed this driver called Bao Ge
After touring jiufen and shifen, he brought us to a local seafood market to buy some seafood, then drove us to a restaurant to cook the seafood.
Restaurant gave us free rice and vegies, and charged minimally for the cooking.

Lost his contact, but if this rings a bell in anyone, do sound out! Been trying to find his contact for quite some time already

Oh, those who never try before, should eat 1 time 台铁便当...
Can buy the original(the one in octagon box) or the more expensive ones. Not bad actually
Tried once but didn't eat much. If going for long journey, i think can buy and try. But if like 1hr journey, i rather save my stomach space for other food (i was going to ruifang station to go jiufen)

Last trip I went to 老宋記真善美牛肉麵 for beef noodle. so far the best i've eaten in taipei. The meat is very tender, and they also serve pig intestines, etc. it is a bit out of place though.

Another good food is 鄭記豬腳飯 between TMS and XMD. serves good braised pork, also got 东波肉 and milkfish too.

One more I like to frequent is 趙記菜肉餛飩大王 near ximen stn. If you like big wantons, this one is very big and nice. The soup base is the light type which is good for breakfast.

ruifang stn is located at a T-traffic junction. There is a market at the end of the road. Got lots of nice food inside the market. At night there will also be stalls lining up the side of the road. I like the 龙风腿 sold in one of these stalls, cheap and good.
