Taiwan bound...

hello -

May be in Taipei and HsinChu in a few weeks. What is going ont here food wise? I lived there 20+ years ago and recall it fondly.

Looking for some great dinners in either taipei or HsinChu.

Last time we were there, People's was the best around.

  1. This blogger's tastes don't align with mine, but it's well-organized and should give you some ideas:

    Did you enjoy People's? How long ago was that? Do you want something like that again?

    Hsinchu is famous for their mifen (rice vermicelli) and I think they have some festival that celebrates that (but I seem to recall that that is in the summer). I'd look for places that do dishes with mifen.

    Good luck on your trip and please post back!
