second pic is dingtaifeng, nowadays found in nearly every department store, especially in taipei. first pic is from kaohsiung, imo the best beef noodles on the rock, at least for me.
these are just 2 random samples of good food here. but there are many more in every city. when i first came here i depended on 7/11, rouzaofan and biandangs. it can get frustrating with time(but you’ve only been here a month,wow). it took me about 2 years to start craving for anything particular which is not easily available in taiwan.
if you live in taipei, maybe you’d like to read this blog: http://hungryintaipei.blogspot.com/
it’s in english and shows a variety of food
