In Response To:
Shr-Lin is really a convenient place,but the food there is both expensive and soso (food especially in the stores around the Taipei Main Station--terrible...). Another thing is the smell of some sections of the road; it is somehow "smell", isn't it? Maybe I am too unlucky to meet a good food stand or merely too picky.
Another information about Shr-Lin: it is a place to kill the guilty people at ancient time.
ps. I just express my opinion, no other meaning.
