Walking down there is this nice mee sua, their chili is nice and they do sell the chili. Big bowl is 75 NT while small one at 55NT. The photos below are 2 small bowls. I think this is better than Ah zhong.
There is actually alot of taiwan tour package, but i rather find Taipei can simply just free and easy. If you wish to book tour perhaps i will recommend Mr Wu to you.
We had pre arrange a half day trip to 三峽老街, we get our Taiwan driver to pick us up at our hotel. If you are looking for a private driver to tour around Taiwan or Taipei, I highly recommend Mr Wu,吳先生 who we have been using his service for many years. Very positive feedback from all those who i recommend. You can whatsapp him for quote I am sure he will give you a good price.

The old street in the morning the popular snacks is the croissant bread and nougats. You can smell the nice butter croissant. Many like to buy the nougats crackers, they are available here.
The objective to 三峽老街 is to get 徐媽媽 豆腐乳 Mum bought a carton, super nice they have sampling you can try them. Super comfort food during rainy days or days you are eating porridge it really serve a good match! Mr wu drove us for lunch after our purchase. He checked with us what we like to have. We told him big trotter and lu ruo fan. Because I still miss the last night jin feng braised pork rice.

After the sumptous lunch, we are back to our hotel to unload and shop around at XMD before getting our nails done. I really have to shout out to color 101. It was cheap to do fancy manicure in Taipei. Can you imagine that this set of manicure only cost me 799NT, approximate $36 sgd. How can u get such price in Singapore, you probably cant get the same price in Malaysia too when it is near CNY season. Of course i selected the CNY series but you can always customise a little. They are much more flexible without additional cost!
While sis get her nails done up with dog for her chinese new year
After our nails done, time is pretty late to almost 6pm, and we took train down to 老四川 for my fravourite mala hotpot. Why 老四川 ? I really love the mala soup base, and free flow of duck blood. I dont get to eat duck blood in singapore. I have to say their duck blood is so delicious. My definitely order will be the squid paste. A must viisit in Taipei.
Another shop that i will visit to buy back some confectionary back. They have the egg yolk tart.
