There’s a Taiwanese specialty called lu rou fan (or braised pork rice) that consists of ultra-tender pork belly and mushroom on top of rice.
I don’t think there’s any universe in which that wouldn’t be delicious, and certainly, the version they sell at Jin Feng is extremely delicious.
Gua Bao (a.k.a. pork belly buns) are pretty huge in Taiwan, and having just eaten one, it’s very easy to see why.
The Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei is one of those places you pretty much have to see if you’re a tourist. I guess you could skip it, but why? It’s seriously impressive, it’s right in the middle of the city, and it’s free to visit.
Like the noodle soup I mentioned earlier, this is another restaurant I stumbled on completely at random. It’s pretty obvious that Taipei is a great food city if it’s this easy to find amazing food.
Further proof that if you see a line-up for food, you should immediately get in it: this delicious noodle soup that was in heavy demand at 8:30 in the morning.
Pancakes shancakes. Cereal? Get out of here with that. Noodle soup for breakfast is clearly where it’s at.

Well, the trip is drawing to a close, which means that this is my last taste of international McDonald’s weirdness.
Line-ups for food are a traveler’s best friend. Have I mentioned this before? I have? A million times? Well, it’s true.
The latest line-based discovery: a street food stand called Uncle Bean, which serves up some seriously delicious tofu-based desserts.
Well, that’s that for Thailand. So here comes the usual assortment of photos.
