Ben brought me to this place selling vegetarian food. I never knew vegetarian food could be that varied in taste and I'm glad to have sampled so many dishes.
I then decided it would be difficult if I insisted on eating only vegetarian food so for the rest of the trip I ate meat. It was really to also be able to truly experience Taipei and also be able to spend quality time with friends. Food brings people together and you get a better sense of a city through tasting it's food.
The first meat dish I had with Alan was at this quaint little duck place in Ximending area. We stumbled upon it was we were walking around the many lanes and figured it must be a good place to eat given the number of locals streaming into the place. It was quite interesting to savour the texture of delicious Taipei style duck meat.
