Hungry for more

I've only been to Taipei a few times but, being a food lover, my trips have been agonising. It's not that the food is bad; on the contrary, there's more good food than I can possibly sample. I end up having breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and street food - then pack my suitcase with delicacies such as roasted duck tongue, pineapple cake, dried fish roe and bottled sauces.

My future trips will not be any easier after having read A Hungry Girl's Guide to Taipei (hungryintaipei.blogspot.com). Joan, who's been blogging for five years, tastes everything the city has to offer. Her cross-referenced index is detailed: you can look for restaurants by area, type of cuisine or price, and she has categories: late-night; child-friendly; snacks; and market foods. She also 'doesn't recommend', 'recommends' or 'strongly recommends' the restaurants.
