Any recommendations for a nice birthday dinner (or lunch). We will be in the vicinity of Zhong Shan N. Rd. and Nanjing Rd. that day. Any cuisine is ok. Thanks.

    The Celestial Restaurant is right there - maybe not wahoo birthday snazzy, but very good Northern food. Excellent Northern dian xin on Sundays...has been there since forever, we went last April - had been a staple of our 18 months in Taipei in the 80's. Trust you are enjoying your stay - it's a great city to eat in!

        Excellent, I'm all jazzed up myself at the moment because going to China next week (Shanghai and Suzhou). Taipei is an amazing place to live.
