I searched the boards and didn't turn up much. Maybe there's some new knowledge on hand. I'm going to be in Taipei for two days in September, and I know absolutely no one there. There are few guidebooks on Taiwan and the ones I've looked at seem to assume (a) you know almost nothing about Chinese food, and (b) you might want to eat just a little of it before getting back to McDonald's.
Well, I want to eat a lot of it but am looking for some guidance on navigating the Taipei restaurant scene. If anyone has any firsthand tips, book or website recommendations, or any words of wisdom at all, please reply.
Naturally, I am trying to track down friends of friends who have been to Taiwan or are Taiwanese, but am turning up little so far.
