Black Book

Welcome to my little black book. These are my favorite eating holes and cafes in Taipei and beyond, arranged by neighborhood/MRT stop. If you’d rather search by type of restaurant or some other defining characteristic, I’d suggest clicking on an appropriate category or tab. If you have any suggestions of places I MUST TRY, let me know. Cheers!

No. 17, Minsheng W. Rd., Zhongshan District, Taipei
台北市中山區民生西路17號 /     (02) 2523-3132
This is my all-time favorite dumpling shop, located near Shuanglian MRT Station, Exit 2. There are two adjoining storefronts, but usually only one is open at any given time. And believe it or not, they now have a web site!

Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT

台北市大安區敦化南路一段236巷38號2樓  /  (02) 2711-1519   /

Gonguan MRT

Tai Yi Milk King 臺一牛奶大王
No. 82, Hsinsheng South Rd. Sec. 3, Taipei
台北市新生南路三段82號 / (02) 2362-3172
This is the best place to get glutinous rice dumplings (湯圓, or “tangyuan” in Mandarin).
