佳興 (Jia Xing)

Address: Roosevelt Rd. Sec. 3 Alley 283, just north of Roosevelt Rd. on the east side of the alleyway
Type: Taiwanese
Price: ~NT$70-80 per person

This is a good place if you're looking for something a Taiwanese mother would make, rather than the usual night market fare. The feature is their flavoring: pork oil scallion (豬油蔥). This is mixed together with noodles or mixian, giving them a rich, meaty flavor. Even the green vegetables are flavored with it. The fish balls are are also excellent. If you're feeling adventurous you can try their fish skin, but be warned the flavor is overpoweringly fishy.
