One of the best meals I had in Taipei was at a restaurant in Tamsui Old Street Night Market. My cousin Benjie chose the place.
The restaurant didn’t have an English name.
The place didn’t look like much but the food was wonderful.
The fried oysters tasted even better than the ones we had at Shin Yeh. The oysters tasted fresher and fried crispier too.
Taiwanese people seem to love squid since I saw it in a lot of the fast-food places. These were cooked perfectly tender.

The rice itself was so good and a bit sticky so when it was made into fried rice it became even yummier. I tried my best to stop at a small bowl. I could have eaten much more.
My mom loves fresh bamboo shoots so this was her favorite dish.

All the seafood we ordered were really fresh and well cooked.
Seafood lunch for 8 people who were very, very full cost only NT$1,910 or P2700 or US$64.
Sorry I don’t have the English name or address.

This almost look like the restaurant my now late husband took me to. Food was very good. You had the Taiwan national soup which is clam soup very good. Oyster omelet is more well made in restaurant than food stall that is greasy price you had was good deal.
Oh I didn’t know that clam soup was their national soup. No wonder it was so good.
