Eat Your Way Through the Unique Taipei 吃遍台北

Taipei is a city that does things its own way.  Drawing on Japanese, Chinese and American influences, the capital of Taiwan is an eclectic city which has developed an identity distinctly its own.  Sprawling night markets, fantastic shopping and quirky youth culture are underpinned by an exceedingly friendly people, eager to share with you their city. Be prepared to eat your way through its narrow streets and discover a city built with care and passion.

台北是一个以自己的方式行事的城市。受到中日美文化的影响,台湾的首都是一个不拘一格的城市,有它独特的个性。广阔的夜市,梦幻般的购物和古怪的青年文化都得到了友好人民的支持,他们渴望与您分享他们的城市。立刻准备好在狭窄的街道上吃东西,去发现一个充满关怀和激情的城市。

Eat and Drink 吃喝

Taipei is known for its night markets.  In particular, the expansive Shilin night market is a perfect place to eat a range of local food whilst picking up some gifts for back home.  Make your way through the web of narrow lanes that play host to hundreds of stalls, selling everything from deep-fried taro balls to the infamous ‘stinky tofu’.

台北以夜市而闻名。尤其是,广阔的士林夜市是一个完美的美食天地,可以吃到一些当地的食物,同时还可以打包带回家。穿过狭窄小巷,畅游数百个摊位,从油炸芋头球到臭名昭着的臭豆腐‘,你能买到所有东西。

To soak up Taipei’s youth culture be sure to head to Ximen in the Wanhua district.  Walking out from the station you almost feel like you’ve stepped into Shibuya, Tokyo; you’ll be assaulted by bright lights, countless shops and a frenzy of young people.  There’s also plenty to eat and drink here to.  Stroll past the bars on Chengdu St, pull up a chair at one of the many street side tables and watch the people float by.  For eating, it’s hard to walk further than five metres without passing a street stall serving up something delicious, and cheap.

要沉浸在台北的青春文化中,一定要前往万华区的西门子。走出车站,你几乎感觉自己已踏入东京的涩谷;你会感受到明亮的灯光,无数的商店和一群年轻人的疯狂气势。这里还能吃到很多东西。漫步成都街的酒吧,在许多街边的桌子上拉起椅子,看着来来往往的人。对于吃而言,每5米就能找到一个美食摊,想找不到吃的都难。

If it’s a taste of Taipei’s quirky side you’re after, Modern Toilet Restaurant is worth a look.  Believe or not the name is not misleading, as all the dishes are served in…toilets. It’s something that has to be seen to believed, and with multiple locations around Taipei it’s easy to fit into your schedule.

如果是品尝台北古怪的一面,现代马桶餐厅值得一看。相信与否,名称不会误导,因为所有的菜都在洗手间。这是必须被看到的信仰,并且在台北周围的多个位置,很容易适应你的行程。

Culture 文化

Food is something inherently tied to the culture of Taiwan. As mentioned before, its hard to move far through Taipei without running into a packed restaurant or street-food stall.  If this is a little overwhelming, a food tour is a great way to see the best of what’s on offer. Taipei Eats is our pick of the tours on offer, which takes you on a leisurely four hour journey to all the gastronomical delights of Taipei.  You’ll be able to sample a range of foods, learn a bit of the history behind it all and gain a unique insight into what is undoubtedly a crucial part of Taiwanese life.

食物是与台湾文化固有联系。如前所述,5米就能找到一个美食摊,想找不到吃的都难。如果这有点太过了,美食旅游是一个很好的方式。台北美食是我们提供的旅游选择,让您悠闲地四小时,享受台北的美食。你可以品尝一系列食物,了解一切背后的历史,并获得对台湾生活无疑至关重要的独特见解。

For a quieter day of exploring, Fujin St is a great place to explore the hipster side of the city. This quiet and leafy street is a stark contrast to the bustling Ximen area, but is no less enjoyable.  Wander through its impressive cafes, record shops and clothing stores to get a look into the cool culture of Taiwan.

对于探索一个安静的一天,富锦街是探索城市时髦一面的好地方。这个宁静而绿树成荫的街道与熙熙攘攘的西门地区形成鲜明对比,但同样令人愉快。通过其令人印象深刻的咖啡馆,唱片店和服装店漫步,了解台湾的酷文化。

Eaten more than your fill? Feeling like a workout? Elephant Mountain is an achievable hike right near the heart of Taipei, offering amazing aerial views of the city and a chance to wake up from your holiday food coma.  It’s not far from Taipei 101, and will take about 15-20 minutes to climb the stairs to the top.  It is recommended that if you’re looking to catch a decent sunset, Elephant Mountain is the place to go.

Worthy day trips 值得的一日游

Looking to escape briefly from Taiwan’s hustle and bustle? Take the bus to the mountainous town of Jiufen.  It’s winding alleyways and markets are what inspired Hayao Miyazaki’s famous film ‘Spirited Away’.  Try getting a little lost off the main tourist walk to explore some of the back streets.  You’ll find magnificent views of the town nestled into the surrounding mountains, as well as glimpses of the ocean in the distance.

想从台湾的喧嚣中匆匆逃脱?乘公车到九份山区。这是曲折的小巷,市场激发了宫崎骏的著名电影“千与千寻”。尝试让自己迷路一下,探索一些后街。你会发现坐落在周围群山中的小镇景色壮丽,还有远处海洋的瞥见。

Happy travels!

旅行快乐!
