Embark on a culinary tour of Taiwan’s most delicious street foods. This year’s theme of “Retro Taiwan” transports you to a nostalgia you didn’t know you had for local Taiwanese street markets. Find everything from mouth-watering skewered squid dumplings to sweet taro paste desserts. Since the festival is hosted inside Ueno Park, line your festival visit up with a walk around the park and maybe a stop to say hello to the neighboring zoo’s famous panda residents.
