Taipei, Taiwan // Day 1 (Part 2): Searching For Authentic Taiwanese Food

After not being able to sleep at the airport, I was just running on coffee and some weird tasting soup I got from the 24-hour store. It was really bad. Too much broth and flavoring. Ew. Finally the bus came and drove us to the hotel but the hotel wasn’t ready for us yet so we just left our stuff there and started our Taiwan adventure already.

So what to do in Taiwan, huh? Of course, food trip! Like we always do when traveling. These one-sided fried bread with stuffing called Qian Pao (i think?) are everywhere! So might as well try the one around our hotel block.

Food after food after food…

So many noodle restaurants to choose from but none of them served chicken noodle soup! Even just chicken wonton.. :( Because I don’t eat pork. That Tea Egg in the soup was enough anyway!

If you’re not eating at the little restaurants around Taipei, then you’re obviously missing out! Those are even better than the big name establishments here! And eating a little bit of everything is okay! Just walk it off after.

Walked the whole afternoon going to Sun Yat Sen Memorial hall. That place is huge, it’s so tiring to even walk from the gate to the hall itself! Haha! Caught the changing of guards but there were too many people pushing just to see them march. Didn’t miss much.

Then walked to Taipei 101!! So many free taste of their famous Pineapple Cake, I got so full so fast haha! Yeah, that’s the only thing we bought at Taipei 101 - food. The shops there are not really my style and I was saving up for the night market (next post)! So we ended up having semi-light dinner. Sushi on conveyor belt!! Yay!

And then crashed instantly when we got to the hotel room at 4:30PM. 

*sleep*
