Clams with Chili, Spring Onion, Garlic and Basil. A classic dish that I always love to order and prepared perfectly at Qiao Wei Tai Cai Seafood Restaurant. Love the kick the Chili gives!

It's still bamboo season in Taiwan so ordering fresh bamboo is a must. They serve it with traditional soy sauce and also mayonnaise for dipping

King Crab Legs with a Kiwi salad. Felt like an odd combination when I saw it brought to the table but the flavours worked, and the crab was so meaty and sweet

These were some of the most delicious scallops I have had. Perfectly cooked on the outside and still semi raw on the inside they were so fresh, sweet and meaty. Served with fresh tomatoes. Amazing!

For one of our last night's in Taipei we are at a highly recommended local Taiwanese restaurant that specialised in Seafood and roasted meats called Qiao Wei Tai Cai Seafood Restaurant. The chef goes to 4 different markets every morning at 4am to buy the freshest produce and serves an "Omakase" style menu for his guests. We started with their Signature roast goose which was delicious with a melt in your mouth later of fat on the outside.

Great fine dining experience at ORCHID restaurant Taipei! The restaurant changes its degustation menu seasonally and frequently flies over Michelin Starred chefs for pop up dinners. We tried their new Summer tasting menu and loved starting with this beautifully presented dish of Oyster, Cucumber and Yuzu Koshu

Du Hsiao Yueh, which was established in 1895, serves up fresh Taiwanese fare in a traditional setting. They are especially famous for their home made Dan Zai Noodles which you can watch being made at their live noodle station at the restaurantโ€™s entrance.

Another one of my favourite night markets is Ningxia Night Market (ๅฏงๅคๅคœๅธ‚) located in Taipei on Ningxia Rd between Nanjing W. Rd and Mingshen W. Rd, which offers plenty of local eats and has an energetic atmosphere. The crowded path is lined with little stalls offering up everything from shellfish, sausages, fresh fruit and an array of Taiwanese specialities. Donโ€™t forget to check out the surrounding restaurants too if you are looking for a casual sit down atmosphere and want a taste of how the locals dine. A must visit spot for foodies wanting to get a true taste of Taiwan. Below are a few items I recommend from this Night Market:

A must try in Taipei these Tian Jin Onion Pancakes on YongKang Street. Only $12HK for an onion pancake filled with cheese, basil and ham. So good but the queues get really long at with temperatures of 37ยฐC at the moment you might not want to be outside for too long ๐Ÿ˜

Woo Old Fashioned at Woo Taipei, one of my favourite bars in Taiwan (btw nothing to do with Woo Bar at W Hotel Taipei). Great atmosphere and decor with talented mixologists using great ingredients. (One of the few bars to make the list of top 50 bars in Asia 2016 of which there were not many from Taiwan)

One of my favourite and most well known places for a typical Taiwanese breakfast is called Soy Milk King. Everything's very cheap at about 20NTD-40NTD, freshly made and it's open 24 hours a day. Here are a few dishes that I recommend trying from here:

#1 Salty Soy Milk with Youtiao. Freshly made and one of their most popular dishes
