Ding Wang Hotpot

You shouldn’t leave Taipei without having steamboat, and this is the best place to get it – choose from either a fragrant, spicy broth filled with goodies like duck blood (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!) and tofu or a chicken and sauerkraut-based broth (or both in a yin-yang pot!) – and order a plethora of various thinly sliced meats and vegetables for you to cook on the spot. It’s a place frequented by locals and tourists alike and there are usually snaking queues that extend out the door, so you know you’re in the right place!

Find it at 108, Taiwan, Taipei City, Wanhua District, 西寧南路62號2樓
