✈ Taipei, Taiwan x Day 3

Day 3 - Taipei, Xi Men Ding

Taichung to Taipei
From Taichung, Jack & I took the bus back to Taipei Main Station at 1230pm. We slept throughout the 2 hours ride, took a train stop to XMD and arrived just in time for hotel check-in :)
Multi-storey Starbucks everywhere
We booked 5 nights at ECFA Hotel for SGD85/night with daily breakfast buffet. The hotel and room wasn't on par and as comfortable compared to Plaza Hotel. Bathroom was also way smaller and I didn't really like it. But anyway, we were out on most days so it was still ok!
 Our hotel was 5 minutes away from XMD and it was almost dinner time by the time we settled. 
We spent the whole night roaming and getting dinner around XMD. First up was bbt from 50 钢, heard it's the same as Koi.

We past by a pushcart filled with different dishes and there were many locals queuing for it. It looks like our local YTF and so we decided to try it out. It was superb!! The stall owner also recommended us some goose meat which was not bad.
Ah Zong Mian Xian 阿宗面线! 
I am not a fan of 面线 but I guess this is a must try when we're in Taiwan! We got a bowl to share and both of us find it okay. The queue was long but moves really fast. We joined the locals by hanging outside the shop to finish our food haha. 
We past by a crowd overseeing a talented man doing his spray artwork and ended up standing there for a good 30 minutes. Totally in awe by how he turned a white piece of paper into an artwork with his spray cans and  we each got a piece from him, magical!
Just the beginning of our Taipei night, 5 more fun days to go :)
