There are lots of cheap and tasty (or cheap and dirty) little restaurants in Taipei, usually run as long-standing family businesses.  Most of these rely on the business of local residents and workers, but some are good enough to attract visitors from other districts.

The tiny noodle and pastry breakfast joint called Zhang Wu Ji on Ning Bo (Po) East Street, near the corner of Section 1 Roosevelt Road (Luo Si Fu Road), is unfortunately not one of these places.  However, if you are going to see Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall in the morning, it doesn’t hurt to check this place out if you aren’t afraid of the local food spots.  They are usually only open up to about noon, so you need to get in early.

Zhang Wu Ji looks dodgy from the outside but the food is great
