hi mates,

My taiwanese gf and I have been riding around Taipei and came across this awesome place offering swiss panini and coffee. Its at 台北市士林區中山北路六段37-1號 Kinfolk cheese & coffee, closeby to Tianmu Sogo and somewhere near Zhishan station. It helps that they speak english, and it certainly captivated me when their boss, offered to share with me about Taiwan and their culture a little (kinda like an exchange). If you guys are keen for a cycling ride with my gf and I, see you there at Kinfolk 1030h for brekkie first on Sundays. We live just around the corner.

Chinese: Ding Tai Feng in Tianmu SOGO. I ate there almost twice a week. The last week I was in Taiwan, I ate there 5 times. Haha.

As for western joints, no comment. I seldom at at any of them.

Hi guys, i will be in Taiwan for two weeks.

Sorry if this has been asked before but is there a website or android app where locals post up reviews?

Like a yelp or urbanspoon.

I can read some Chinese.

The Hungry in Taipei blog is also a good place to start. She is a bit over-focused on 'western' food but has more than 100 reviews of Chinese restaurants including many standards. She's a bit conservative in her tastes in my view. I recommend No. 15 Taoyuan St. for beef noodles (http://hungryintaipei.blogspot.tw/2013/ ... ng-ji.html), Lungmen dumpling shop for dumplings (http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/feat/ar ... 0000179697), and Liu Pin 六品 (No. 8, Alley 3, Lane 199, Jinhua Street, Da’an ).

Also Ya Rou Bian 鸭肉扁 Ximen Station 西门捷运站 > Exit 6 > Rainbow lobby > Walk straight into the alley & walk to the end > Will see the signboard.

Long's Shanghai restaurant. No.1, Lane 101, Yanping South Road, Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan (Near Zhongshan Hall)

MYJ "Pofessionla Lamb Food" http://www.mjy.com.tw/new/english_version/index_en.htm. Several convivial locations. I like the one on Xinhsheng S. Road

Chinese: Tian Wai Tian (天外天) at Min-Quan and Xin-Sheng

Dim Sum: . Mom & Pop shop at Kang-Ning Rd.. Sec.1, 10 meters from Cheng-Gong Rd..

Western: Tasca in Shilin. (Loved it so much, I invested in it over the autumn) Try the Spring Chicken and Seabass, they're phenominal!(Shameless plug :D )

Pizza: Pizza Bueno in Donghu and Alley Cat's

Hot wings: Hooter's, cause it's the only place they have endless rolls of paper towels for when I've eaten so much hot sauce, I can no longer feel my face(around my mouth) :D :oops: :D

Breakfast/Brunch: My own cooking or Diner, but we're working on a weekend brunch menu with some pretty awesome regular and toasted sandwiches for the coming spring that I'm pretty sure will top both of my current favorites.
