For a true Taiwanese experience Shenkeng street is a must see. Filled with beautiful architecture of a bygone era. Beautiful restaurants and street food with retail therapy this is an enjoyable excursion.
Well worth doing when in Taipei
Tofu everywhere. That is the impression about Shenkeng, but we'd just learned that there are four treasures in Shenkeng: tofu, bamboo shoots, pork, and tea. That is why you see the food and souvenir stores selling all kinds of stuff related to these four treasures....More

Just a short street but worth the time spent to travel here. Am a corrugated duck blood and stinky tofu fan. So this place is a natural for me. The nostalgic feel also slowed our pace down to enjoy a moment of peacefulness.
I love old streets but this isn't my favorite. It's smaller and way outside the city. I drove there via scooter but if you're on pub transit there are busses from Taipei zoo station. It's famous for stinky tofu (which I don't like) so if...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.
