We were staying at 新驛旅店復興北路店 CityInn Hotel Plus Fuxing North Road branch, and just around the corner from the hotel, half-way to the 捷運中山國中站 MRT Zhongshan Junior High School Station, is this awesome food street, and was the recommended go-to street for food!
There is a variety of food options here, ranging from small eateries of braised pork belly rice, noodle stalls. dessert stalls, Japanese restaurants, to Italian restaurants, trendy cafes, and a vegetarian buffet restaurant!
We had popped by for lunch when we shifted from our previous hotel, and brunch on our last day in Taipei. Spoilt for choices, but we had only enough stomach space to try the following places.

So after our walk at 永康街 Yongkang Street, we decided that we shall conquer a couple of night markets along the 中和新蘆線 Zhonghe Xinglu Line (Line 4) since last night we did the same along the 板南線 Bannan Line (Line 5).
There were a couple of night markets located conveniently along the line, notably 輔大花園觀光夜市 Fuda Flower Night Market located right next to 輔仁大學 Fu Jen University, and 三和夜市 Sanhe Night Market located near to 捷運台北橋站 MRT Taipei Bridge Station.
We had initially planned to come here the day before (Thursday), but realized (only in the afternoon) that 輔大夜市 Fuda Night Market closes on Mondays and Thursdays! To think we had thought that all night markets in Taipei open daily, haha.
華陰街 Huaying Street is very near to 台北轉運站 Taipei Bus Station and also known as 台北後火車站商圈 (Back of Taipei Train Station Business Area) and is just behind our favourite breakfast place 老園環食品, so that was where we went after breakfast. We then realized that most of the eateries are only open from noon onwards, except for a few pushcarts.
There were also some local department stores. Do not be deceived by the small shop front; we went into one that had 2 floors! The stores are very similar to what we have in Singapore, selling all sorts of daily utensils and what-have-yous. Walking here could easily be mistaken as walking in Toa Payoh Central!
We walked through the entire street and very soon it was time for lunch!
