Where to eat in Taipei. Taipei food tour feast.
Our last full day in Taiwan and we did and ate as much as we could! After a “nap” that turned into a full night of sleep the day before, we were on a mission. Our mission was to eat everything we wanted, but didn’t get a chance to try yet.
First, we ate at the original location of the famous Din Tai Fung. Then, we ate at a few spots on Yongkang Street before heading to Gongguan.

After all of this eating, we headed to the northern coast. Here, we explored Yehliu Geopark, including Queen’s Head.
We ended our trip with a hike up Elephant Mountain (Xiangshan) to see the amazing views of the city. From here, the Taipei 101 stands out among the skyline.
We are Greg and Jumi, hailing from opposite ends of the globe. Greg is a native New Yorker who was born and raised in Queens NYC and Jumi grew up in the beautiful islands of the Visayas region of the Philippines.
How did we meet? One of us messaged the other on Instagram (before sliding in DM’s was even possible through the app!) and we met just after Hurricane Sandy hit NYC in October 2012. Although we grew up in two very different worlds, we bonded over a love of experiences over material things, delicious food and exploration.
