Lan Jia Gua Bao
To truly eat like a local, order the pork buns—slow braised and topped with pickled mustard, cilantro, and peanuts—at Lan Jia Gua Bao near National Taiwan University. Specify fatty or lean meat and devour it along with a bowl of the equally popular corn-and-pork-rib soup. While the line can snake around the block, the pillowy snacks are worth the wait.
