In the evening, meet your private guide at Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Station and set off on foot for a personalized food tour of Taipei. Head to one of the city's oldest markets where you'll find traditional Taiwanese cuisine, including an array of dried fruit and meat. Sample each as you peruse the stands. Your guide will share insight into how these delicious food are made, and discuss how to incorporate gourmet ingredients into your own cooking; feel free to ask as many questions as you like.
Following a stop at a nearby restaurant to try a local specialty, stroll through the neighborhood en route to your next destination: Nanjichang Night Market. You'll find numerous savories and sweets on a walk around the famous market, beloved by locals and visitors alike. Taste all manner of cooked meats, dumplings, tofu, fried chicken, steamed buns, and more, accompanied by smoothies, sweets, and fresh fruit juice.
Enjoy a feast for the senses as you explore the market at your own pace. Be sure to save room for a typical dessert — shave ice topped with seasonal, local fruits. When you've had your fill your guide will accompany you to the nearby MRT (Longshan Temple Station).
