What To Eat in Taipei (Part 1) ZhongYang ShiChang Seafood 中央市场生猛海鲜 @ Let's Go To Taipei

Taiwan is a well-known true foodie paradise.
Almost everything is delicious in Taipei, it seems like this place has a never ending supply of delicious and interesting foods to try everyday.
Our time in Taipei is like a food marathon, from morning till night eating non-stop; obviously the main reason why I gained at least 3kg after the trip! #nightmare
If you are travelling to any places in Taiwan, make sure your stomach is well prepared hey!
To begin the food journey in Taiwan, today I'll be sharing Re-Chao热炒, which is one of the popular food in Taiwan.
Re-Chao basically offers variety of small and cheap stir fried dishes with an ice-cold beer at an informal restaurant.
All dishes such as seafood, tofu, pork, chicken, beef, lamb, and vegetables are meant to stir fried in different cooking ways such as fried, sweet and sour, braised, or steamed.
It's definitely something new for me to try out. :)

After a long day out at Jiufen and Shifen, Aison strongly suggested that we should have our dinner at ZhongYang ShiChang Seafood 中央市场生猛海鲜.
He been here once with his Taiwanese friends, and he said the food was delicious and at a good price.
So, we thought why not?! :)

We were lucky because we arrived at the restaurant pretty early, like before 7pm.
The restaurant was not very fulled, we were able to get a seat overlooking the whole restaurant.
But when it reached the dinner time, the restaurant was fully occupied, mostly filled with locals.
Well, this gave us an impression that it must be a good place for dinner! #yes

The menu was a surprise, with a lot of choices!
I had no idea what to order, lucky to have Aison to look into the menu and made the decision for all of us. #thankyou
