Mume

No. 28, Siwei Road, Da’an District (四維路28號), Taipei, Taiwan

Mume is a modern European style, casual fine dining restaurant with local Taiwanese produce. Created by three chefs with different haute cuisine experience: Richie Lin from Noma in Copenhagen, Kai Wang from Quay in Sydney and Long Xiong from Per Se in New York. Go here for food that is as tasty as it's beautiful. A place not to miss!

Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐)

No. 194, Section 2, Xinyi Road, Da’an District (信義路二段194號), Taipei, Taiwan

Din Tai Fung is actually a chain of dumpling restaurants around the world, but this is the original venue! The queue is several hours long every day, as the place attracts both locals and dumpling fans from far away. Show up early and get your ticket. You can check out the street food in the area (Yong Kang Street) while you wait – e.g. Tian Jin Onion Pancake. Make sure you're back in time for your table, though.

Tian Jin Onion Pancake (天津蔥抓餅)

http://Tian%20Jin%20Onion%20Pancake
No. 1, Lane 6, Yongkang Street, Da’an District (大安區永康街6巷1號), Taipei, Taiwan

Tian Jin Onion Pancake has a constant queue, so the place is easy to spot. Both locals and traveling foodies are waiting patiently for these soft and doughy, yet crunchy and flaky scallion pancakes. They're freshly made and cooked to perfection every day. Get the one with Thai basil inside!

Biteology (咬學問)

http://Biteology
No. 9, Alley 8, Lane 172, Section 2, Dunhua South Road, Da'an District ( 台北市敦化南路二段172巷8弄9號1樓), Taipei, Taiwan

Biteology not only offer natural wines, they even try to push it with a 10% discount! The cuisine is French with starters like foie gras with sweet jam and crispy bread and main courses like slow cooked beef cheeks with truffle potato mash. Rich, hearty, dishes and fermented grape juice to flush it down. Sometimes it's nice with a break from Asian cuisine.

Lan Jia Gua Bao (藍家割包)

http://Lan%20Jia%20Gua%20Bao
No. 3, Alley 8, Lane 316, Section 3, Luosifu Road, Zhongzheng District (大安區羅斯福路三段316巷8弄3號), Taipei, Taiwan

Lan Jia Gua Bao makes the best steam buns in town, and just like other popular street food in Taipei that's reflected in their long queue. Enjoy a mix of lean and fatty pork belly, pickled mustard greens, peanut powder and fresh cilantro in a steaming warm bao bun.

Chen San Ding Boba Milk Tea (陳三鼎黑糖粉圓鮮奶專賣店)

http://Chen%20San%20Ding%20Boba%20Milk%20Tea
No. 2, Alley 8, Lane 316, Section 3, Luosifu Road, Zhongzheng District (羅斯福路三段316巷8弄口), Taipei, Taiwan

Chen San Ding is probably the most famous boba milk tea in Taipei, and yet they don't actually use any tea. It's just ice cold sweetened milk mixed with warm, gooey tapioca bubbles which have a caramelized flavor – almost like molasses.

Shengyuan Shigua Xiao Long Tang Bao (盛園絲瓜小籠湯包)

http://Sheng%20Yuan%20Si%20Gua%20Xiao%20Long%20Tang%20Bao
No.1, Lane 25, Section 2, Hangzhou South Road (106杭州南路2段25巷1號1樓), Taipei, Taiwan

Shengyuan Shigua Xiao Long Tang Bao is a great everyday spot for the famous xiao long bao, XLB, or steamed soup dumpling if you want. Sauces are mixed at a self-service station. In addition to XLB – order the Chinese pancake and the potstickers!

Seven Coffee

http://Seven%20Coffee
No. 10, Lane 59, Section 1, Nanchang Road (台北市中正區南昌路一段59巷10號), Taipei, Taiwan

This "impossible to find anywhere on the Internet"-place is called Seven Coffee or #7 Coffee. As far as I can figure out there's no website, Facebook page, or any other social media profile, but follow my coordinates and you'll find it. The girl running the shop meticulously brews each cup – and it's worth the wait!

Fuzhou Shizu Hujiao Bing (福州世祖胡椒饼)

http://Fuzhou%20Shizu%20Hujiao%20Bing
No. 13, Section 1, Chongqing South Road, Zhongzheng District (重慶南路1段13號), Taipei, Taiwan

Fuzhou Shizu is well-known in Taipei for hujiao bing – that's black pepper buns. All day long a team work continuously to meet the demand for this piping hot food item. They stuff dough with pork meat, dip it in scallions, wrap it together and bake the buns by sticking them to the wall of a preheated clay oven – just like Indian naan bread is made.

Ji Sushi (磯壽司)

http://Ji%20Sushi
No. 12, Xingcheng Street, Datong District (台北市大同區興城街12號), Taipei, Taiwan

Ji Sushi is a hole in the wall eatery hidden away in a dark back alley. The smell in the street is dominated more by oil from car mechanic garages than neighboring restaurants. The clientele is exclusively locals, there is a self-service beer fridge in the corner and the food is simple: sushi, meat skewers, and vegetables.

Fuhang Soy Milk (阜杭豆漿)

http://Fuhang%20Soy%20Milk
Hua Shan Traditional Market, No.108, Section 1, Zhongxiao East Road, Zhongzheng District (忠孝東路1段108號2樓華山市場二樓), Taipei, Taiwan

You'll find this super popular soy milk breakfast store at the second floor of the Hua Shan Market. Don't bother to enter through the main entrance of the market, though, as the queue will always stretch down the stairs and around the corner on the back of the building anyway. Enjoy both hot or cold, and sweet or savory soy milk, Chinese deep-fried dough sticks, sesame buns and egg crêpes.

Kaffa Lovers

http://Kaffa%20Lovers
No. 3, Jinshan North Road, Zhongzheng District (金山北路3號), Taipei, Taiwan

Kaffa Lovers is a small coffee shop on the outskirts of the Zhongzheng District, close to the Huashan 1914 Creative Park. The modern, light wood interior makes it look like a Scandinavian coffee shop or something out of an IKEA catalog. They offer espresso based coffees, but you want to go for the hand brew.

KiOSK (咖啡館)

http://KiOSK
No. 40, Section 1, Xinsheng North Road, Zhongshan District (台北市新生北路一段40號), Taipei, Taiwan

KiOSK is a Melbourne style coffee shop famous for their flat white and cakes – in particular, the lemon and olive oil cheesecake. Don't miss their carrot cake either, though, with its well-balanced sweet and acidic cream. Modern, minimalist and marble characterize the interior design. Very hipster friendly!

Fika Fika Cafe

http://Fika%20Fika%20Cafe
No. 33, Yitong Street, Zhongshan District (台北市伊通街33號一樓), Taipei, Taiwan

Fika Fika Cafe is a Scandinavia-inspired coffee shop. Fika is the Swedish word meaning "to have coffee" - preferably with some snack. These guys even won the Nordic Roaster Championship in 2013. I was surprised to find that their Brown Sugar Latte, a very un-Scandinavian coffee drink, was considered the classic.

Ling Dong Fang Beef Noodles (林東芳牛肉麵)

http://Ling%20Dong%20Fang%20Beef%20Noodles
No. 274, Section 2, Bade Road, Zhongshan District (台北市八德路二段274號), Taipei, Taiwan

Ling Dong Fang Beef Noodles is a favorite among locals for cheap, yet tasty beef noodles. The menu is in all Chinese, but the option you want is the very first one. Different garnish can be selected from the fridge. Also, if you can manage to communicate, ask for the braised tofu puffs. They're amazing!

Jing Ding Xiao Guan (京鼎小館)

http://Jing%20Ding%20Xiaoguan
No. 13, Lane 155, Dunhua North Road, Songshan District (松山區敦化北路155巷13號), Taipei, Taiwan

Jing Ding Xiao Guan is a nice, casual, neighborhood restaurant. It's popular with the locals and serves Taiwanese classics like steamed soup dumplings (xiao long bao) and steamed baozi filled with BBQ flavored pork (cha siu bao). Try the Oolong steamed dumplings!

The Lobby of Simple Kaffa

http://Simple%20Kaffa
No. 48, Lane 177, Section 1, Dunhua South Road, Songshan District (106松山區敦化南路一段177巷48號B1), Taipei, Taiwan

The Lobby of Simple Kaffa is the café of the World Barista Champion in 2016 – Berg Wu. His coffee was, without comparison, the best hand brew we drank in Taipei. Lightly roasted to perfection to reveal the subtle and complex flavor of each coffee bean. Don't miss out on their cakes! They are known for their creamy matcha roll, but the lemon tart and honey cake were fantastic as well.

Raohe Street Night Market (饒河街觀光夜市)

http://Raohe%20Street%20Night%20Market
No. 249, Raohe Street, Songshan District (松山區八德路四段及撫遠街間), Taipei, Taiwan

Raohe Street Night Market is one of the most well-known night markets in Taipei. The first stop should be a familiar one – Fuzhou Shizu Hujiao Bing. The black pepper pork buns with scallions are a real treat for the taste buds. What really makes this stand out from other producers is how they get their buns crispy in the sharp end and soft in the round end.
