I've been to Hong Kong/Southern China about 14 times, but never to Taipei. I'll be there 3 nights next week, but only one late afternoon/night where I can explore a bit before heading on to Hong Kong.
Can anyone recommend a cool area that has night markets and places to eat. Those are my favorite areas in Hong Kong. Not looking for fancy, but rather small, hole in the wall places in the middle of busy markets where I can really get a flavor for the area.
Specific dish recommendations would also be appreciated.
