Many people go to Taiwan for a variety of inexpensive good food. There are restaurants every where: street food, night market, and all kinds of restaurants, coffee shops and tea houses. However, when it comes to Taiwanese cuisine, non-touristy authentic restaurants are limited.
Here’s one recommended by a local Taiwanese, a small restaurant with no English name. I think that the owner’s last name is “Zhao” and the translation is “Zhao opportunities” in English, phonetically the same as “Finding opportunities”. The restaurant environment is very local but the food is good! It is definitely popular among the locals.
