Lets call this an image dump of my favorite Taiwan street photos since the last time I posted…which has admittedly been awhile…
Both my taxi driver and and my sister-in-law claimed that this is currently the best restaurant in Taipei to get seafood. Im not much of a fan of seafood myself (Im kind of the opposite of a pescitarian), but the street-side kitchen made for a cool photographic subject. If you do enjoy giant crab and happen to be in Taipei, you can find 89 Seafood here.
Now on to the pictures.
So a couple of weeks ago I stopped by the nearest Taipei City street market, Raohe Night Market, which sits next to the Sungshan Train Station, to pick up some dinner. I was also interested in visiting because a coworker claimed that on her last visit she had come across a Texan selling deep fried Oreos.

Well, I confirmed his existance and went home with dinner, some photos from the market, and confirmation that this guy does exist (along with deep fried banana pieces).
Taipei now has a second officially Sanrio-approved eatery and, thankfully, it involves far less pink. In fact, there’s no pink at all. Kiko’s Diner in Taipei soft-opened about a week ago and is set to have it’s grand opening January 1st. Contrary to it’s older sister Hello Kitty Sweets, which sits just a couple of blocks away, Kiko’s Diner is less of a novelty-themed restaurant and is more in the style of a business lunch restaurant in both appearance and menu items.
Boyfriends and spouses of the Sanrio-obsessed need not fear.
Heres comes yet another selection of my recent street photos of Taipei. Most…in fact, all…were shot while exploring the small streets and alleys off Civil Boulevard near Taipei Main Station with my kids looking for Halloween costumes and props.
Here we go with some new street photography from Taipei city. If you've liked my Facebook Artist Page or follow me on Tumblr, you may have seen a couple of these recently. But not all of them. Enjoy.
Its been awhile but there are quite a few photos. Lets get started.
