Both places have much better food options imo and is the main reason I look forward to visiting those places. Even the lunch boxes from family mart and 7-11 there taste pretty good.

They usually are spot on, and food is indeed excellent. How they find them, I don't know. Best places I've ever eaten in Taipei and New Taipei were shown to me by Japanese, not locals.
