But there's a whole different side to the city, one that's rich with a variety of enchanting tea houses and cafes, lunch bargains at Robouchon, afternoon tea (some done buffet-style!),or a trip to Maokong for oolong-infused dumplings and tea tastings. But of course we couldn't leave out the night market. Stinky tofu and flour rice noodles: there is happiness in variety. Click on through for snapshots from my latest trip to Taipei.
