G-Woo 鸡窝 Review

When I was brought to G-Woo 鸡窝, I was very apprehensive about having chicken soup. It’s very hot in Taipei and having hot chicken soup doesn’t sound like it would be on the top of anyone’s “food to eat in Taipei” list. But even though I was reluctant to eat here, I went, I ate the casseroles chicken soup and I left extremely happy.

G-Woo 鸡窝 has the best chicken soup you will ever have! It’s thick, full of flavor and very satisfying. Unlike the chicken soup that is served in the United States, this is THICK and is served with chicken so tender that you can effortlessly cut it with chopsticks.

G-Woo 鸡窝 is one of Taipei’s best kept secrets that you won’t find on any tourist Taipei restaurant guide. Don’t worry though, they have menu available in English, Japanese and Korean.

Money In Taiwan

Tax Is Included In The Price

All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.

Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)

The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It's very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It's more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.

Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.

Using Credit Cards in Taiwan

If you want to use your credit card in Taiwan, make sure to check if a restaurant in Taiwan accepts credit card in advance. When a place does accept credit card, it will typically be Visa or Mastercard. It's extremely rare for a place to accept Discover and American Express. UberEats, HonestBee, Deliveroo and FoodPanda are Taipei Food Delivery Services where you can order food directly to your airbnb or hotel using a credit card.

Exchanging Money in Taiwan

You can exchange money at the airport or any bank in Taiwan. The rates vary from bank to bank and it can be a hassle to get a good rate. For additional information, check out my Exchanging Money In Taiwan Guide.
