Came to the Street to try the famous stinky tofu in this well-known restaurant. Most of the old streets don’t have any business after 6 pm. This Old Street is unusual and special because most of stores are still open And a lot of stinky...More
After visiting 九分 and 十分，our driver recommended us to Shenkeng Tofu Street and brought us for dinner.
It offers the attractions of the old Taiwanese old street. The place is well-maintained and it is worth visiting after 九分 and 十分. It is not less crowded...More
It looks like upkeep was done properly, no crumbling bricks at the bldgs, etc. The street itself is a typical old street associated with other taiwan old streets, good to spend a couple of hours here just ambling about. You will need to take a...More
Tourist-filled place. Be wary that the eateries could be tourist trap, as we found our lunch rather expensive by Taiwanese standards. Nice architecture, impressed by the extent of details (even drain covers had carvings of this place). Main takeaways of this place - sour plum...More
Tofu Street is a little annoying to get to if you prefer public transit. I highly recommend using the public transit tab in Google maps to help you navigate - the metro isn't too hard, but it will give you wait times and stuff (some...More
The tofu products are quite limited but worth a try. Such as fried tofu with marinated sides (which tastes gd, first stall on the left when you enter), there is also braised stinky tofu but try if you dare. Some novelty items are tofu mochi...More
About 20 mins drive from Taipei. Very authentic buildings. Very old. Dont expect this to be like the night markets. This is a small street with eateries and shops. The specialty here is tofu and also steamed chicken.
This is one of the interesting streets with an authentic setting unlike raohe and shilin. The things are cheaper and there were not many people when we visited it on a weekday.
To get there take a bus from taipei zoo or maokong gondola. We...More
If you visit here, you must eat chòu tofu. It has many ways to eat, fry in oil with pickle, grilled tofu, Steamed chòu Tofu, and even ice cream tofu. Both of fryed chòu tofu and steamed chòu tofu were my favorite. However, some people...More
Tea fields planted in steps, with a mountain of verdant tea gardens, are a characteristic and unique sight of Pinglin. The Pinglin Tea Museum Periodically hosts various tea-related theme displays alongside exhibitions, experience showrooms, tea art classrooms and other spaces for introduction of the tea industry with its domestic and foreign culture to tourists. Pinglin Old Street preserved the most down to earth
appearance of its hundred year history, including its old stone houses and traditional mom and pop stores. The well known Shenkeng Old Street is famous not only for stinky tofu delicacy but also “four Shenkang specialties”, green bamboo shoots, black pig pork, white tofu, and pouchong tea, planting the delectable image of Shenkang Old Street deep in one's mind. The unique “stilt houses” architecture can only be seen in Shiding, developed by locals to solve the problem of limited spacings. Well known souvenirs blend local features into handmade noodles, combining tea fragrance into noodles and adding new flavors to a traditional taste.

If you're travelling in 4s, for short distances within the city, it could be an added advantage over MRT with just marginal differences in sum total cost. I took from Taipei 101 (or WTC) to Ximenting, MRT rate was TWD60 (SGD2.40) per pax whilst taxi rate was TWD200 (SGD8) so it works out that i saved around 15% if i cabbed in 4. For longer distants, perhaps MRT is comparatively cheaper.
Here's one suggestion for your route.
From Taipei Main Train Station take the MRT Green Line 3 Gongguan station (公館) which is 4 stations away. Take Bus 660 heading southbound, and get off at Shenkeng stop.
As for me, i was with the tour bus, so what i wrote above is only a suggestion & it would be good that you do some comparisons before deciding on which mode of transport to take on. Enjoy your stay in Taiwan, you'll love it.
