Never leave Taiwan without eating some famous Taiwanese dishes. It may be a cliché, but I just had to line up for Taiwan’s famous Din Tai Fung. Internationally known for its xiaolongbao, the line is definitely worth the wait. Named as one of the top 10 restaurants in the world by the New York Times in 1993, its Hong Kong branch was awarded with a Michelin star. Taiwan was recently voted by CNN as the best food destination in the world, having a culinary philosphy of “eat often and eat well”. Beef noodles, bubble tea, pan fried buns, fried chicken, stinky tofu, fish ball soup, and hot pot dishes are among the specialties one can’t leave Taiwan without eating.
This year, you should definitely do your share of “Taiwandering.”*
