Prices, I would say is not cheap in comparison with other stalls like Shilin and food court stalls. But the taste here is different from what we have tasted, and clipping in with bringing the popular dishes available various night markets of Taipei, makes the prices a little more worthy.

We had the nourishing soup, Taichung Night Market Ginger Duck Soup (台中中华夜市姜母鴨湯 - $6.90). As obvious as its name, Taichung Night Market is sure to have this nourishing soup if you are in Taipei and craving for it without searching high and low all over.

Taiwanese Street Snack, Shilin Night Market Vermicelli with Oyster & Pig’s Intestine (士林夜市大肠蚵仔面线 - $9.90). For those who had tried before in Singapore, most would be either just the pig intestine or oyster with the vermicelli only. I always head to Ah Zhong Mian Xian in Taipei because it serves Pig's Intestine Vermicelli!

Another popular snack in Taipei and also in Singapore, Keelung Night Market Oyster Omelette (基隆庙口夜市蚵仔煎 - $9.90). While this is also a popular delicacy in Singapore, it is different in cooking style. Singapore served the omelette in more like a scrambled type, but Eat at Taipei served the omelette like a pizza-style.

One of the popular Taiwanese Stir-Fried Snacks, Poached Savoury Chicken (鹽水雞 - $16.90). We had both of the choice of selections, one in Mala Spicy Sauce and another in Spring Onion Sauce. This dish is served cold on the tender chicken meat, and although I'm really a person who can take in a lot of spices, Mala Spicy version is more to my liking. I love the subtle taste of sourness and spiciness combination, and it opens up my appetite to grab for a few more pieces.

One of the Taiwanese must-have for rice, Nantou Taiwanese–style Braised Minced Pork Rice (南投卤肉飯 - $10.50). The kind of Braised Minced Pork Rice in my perspective is a bowl of rice, with half an egg and whelm with lots of braised minced pork. Eat at Taipei added in additional ingredients such as floss and shrooms. Overall was great, but I would still prefer my bowl of rice to be drenched with the braised mince meat, indulging in the sweet gravy!

 ‘Jiu Fen’ Taro Balls (九份芋圓 - $5.00) is a bowl of hot dessert. I would prefer to describe it as warm as there is no need to wait for it cool down, and you can literally drink from the bowl. It taste like a typical red/green bean soup, sufficient of sweetness and chewy colored taro balls.

Another bowl of dessert, but this time a cold one, and is also the recommended dessert, Special Mango Snow Ice (香甜牛奶芒果雪花冰 - $8.90). Definitely a must-have for mango lovers. It's a big bowl of shaved ice, and Eat at Taipei besides being generous with the ice, they also dished in a lot of mango sauce, extremely sweet mango chunks, and squishy mango "roes"?

food too cheesy

Food was badly cooked with too much cheese added. Not a good experience. The service was not good and very pricey for the standard of food. Lousy quality and badly cooked food. The only good thing is that there was not much customers there so it was very quiet.

Average proclaimed Taiwan fare

Lunch settled simply at Eat @ Taipei today - the branch at Chinatown Point. I have been to this Taiwanese restaurant at least thrice before - its exterior flanked by colorful neon-lit tiles announcing its presence boldly.

The interior is dimly lit but spacious, and the service staff strive to provide amicable service. The food here is not fantastic overall, though there are a couple of items worth a shot or two.

I had the Herbal (Dang Gui) Duck Soup Vermicelli (SGD$10.50), more commonly known as "mee sua". The soup looked thick but the taste of the "dang gui" herb was rather weak, or maybe I am used to having the homecooked one thicker / richer in flavor. The duck was rather tender, but disappointingly the "mee sua" literally "bee hoon", coarse and thick.

Next, the Coffin Toast (SGD$10.50) with seafood soup - prawns, squids, etc. I'd say that the ingredients were rather generous, and the toast was rather crispy. The creamy soup was light in taste - lacking in the sweetness of the seafood it encompasses, but delightful enough.

We shared a Crispy Fried Chicken Chop (SGD$8.90) - that was not crispy or tender at all. Texture and flavor was rather lackluster - to be frank, a piece of $4.90 fried chicken chop from those local Shilin stalls at shopping mall basements taste better.
