From pork pepper buns hawked at night markets to soup dumplings to beef noodle soup, there’s an overwhelming landscape of culinary options in Taipei. Here are a few iconic bites visitors should seek out.

Soup Dumplings: Made famous by the international chain Din Tai Fung, soup dumplings — or xiao long bao — are a favorite in Taipei. They’re served steamed and eaten with a side of vinegar sauce.

Beef Noodle Soup: Rich, spicy soup with long, chewy noodles and slow-cooked beef hits the spot on rainy days. Tuck into any one of a slew of restaurants specializing in this excellent dish.

Pork Pepper Buns: A popular street food in Taipei, especially at the night markets, these buns —hujiao bing — are sprinkled with sesame seeds and stuffed with peppered pork and green onions. They’re handheld and perfect for eating on the go.

Pearl Milk Tea: Also called bubble tea or boba tea, this sweetened black tea is famous all over the world. But in the city of its origin, you’ll find the best iterations — everywhere you look.

Oyster Omelets: Taipei restaurants offer a ton of seafood dishes, but none more iconic than the oyster omelet. You’ll find it sold from street food vendors accompanied by a savory sauce. This omelet doesn’t involve quite as many eggs as the Western omelets you may be used to.

The Water Club at Borgata Review

My husband and I arrived to The Water Club Hotel at the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for our two-night stay and drove directly to valet parking. After the swift drop-off process, we took the escalator to the lobby to check in. With no one ahead of us in line, we were checked in and on our way to our room on the 30th floor in no time.
