Why not try eating breakfast like a Taiwanese for a day at Ximending? Instead of just eating at the hotel’s buffet, let’s get up a little earlier. You can dress up and go outside to enjoy Taipei’s morning air. You’ll notice how people queue up to get their turn, then happily accept the soy milk cup in their hands. A glass of soy milk with egg rolls, buns with various filling flavors, or a hot bowl of steamed dumpling soup is a simple breakfast.

Ay-Chung rice noodles

Everyone wants to try the chewy rice noodles with rich and savory soup as soon as possible, despite the long lines. The noodle here is the regular chewy rice noodle we used to eat at home, but the special thing about it is that it blends really well with the bone marrow broth despite being so crispy and tough. It is spectacular when served with coriander and pork intestine, especially when served with the noodles on a cool day. There is nothing better.

If you are having the noodles for the first time, we recommend that you try a small size paper cup for 55 TWD. Although it appears to be small, it can certainly fill your stomach. If the second round does not satisfy you, go for a large paper cup at 70 TWD. Let’s go to the spice bar after you’ve held the noodles in your hand. We have three options here: chili oil (satay), garlic, and vinegar. Remember that chilies are quite spicy, so if you don’t like spicy food, you can skip this section.

Hot-Star “gigantic” deep-fried chicken in Ximending

Ximending Food Taipei

If you are visiting Taipei, you should make time in your schedule to visit Hot-star Large Fried Chicken. The first store is located at Shilin Night Market (for more information on night markets, click here), but there are now two stores in the heart of Ximending, Taipei. The large crispy deep-fried chicken dish is popular among Taiwanese and is located in a small space beneath KFC. Above all, this is the favorite dish of the majority of young people. It was difficult to resist the allure of a huge hot piece of chicken.
