I’ve had Japanese food before, but I never really enjoyed it.
It’s not a style I’d associate with me, and it’s not the kind of food I’d actually eat.
I love to cook, but it’s never been something I could really get into.
Now that I’m living in Taiwan, it’s something I’ve always wanted to try, and I’ve been craving more Japanese food for a while now.
There are plenty of options in Taipei, but there’s no denying the importance of Japanese food to Taiwan’s food scene.
I know that’s not something many people outside of Taiwan are aware of, but for many of us, it is.
The best way to get started in Taiwan is to visit some of Taipei’s restaurants.
The best way I can describe Taipei, at least to me, is as a Japanese version of Tokyo.
My favorite restaurants are Tsingtao and Taipei Taekwondo, both of which offer a wide variety of Japanese cuisine.
There’s also the very popular Hakkenden.
If you’re in town, you might want to stop by the city’s famous Khao Yai Market to try out some of its wares.
Taipei also has a very large Japanese population, and if you want something that’s a bit more traditional, you’ll probably want to head to Nantou to check out a Japanese restaurant or sushi bar.
I’ll end this post with a tip: If you like Japanese food, don’t just go to Tokyo.
Take your pick of restaurants, and try some of the more unique and exotic dishes, and you’ll find some of your favorite Japanese restaurants.
