Welcome to Dadaocheng

Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of big cities? Or are you bored with your mundane life? Why not go on a tour to the old city district right now and experience the past in the present!

Dadaocheng is situated along Tamsui River. The name was originated from the big open grounds that were used to sun-dry rice. During Qing dynasty, Taiwanese tea that was exported to other countries built up an excellent reputation.

Along with convenient transportation, more and more foreign merchants came to Dadaocheng to do trades and establish business points. Therefore, the neighborhood of Daodaocheng Wharf gradually became the commercial hub of Northern Taiwan.
Later on, problems occurred, such as local residents moving away and the siltation of the river, the past glory can no longer be seen. Yet, the relics of the past are still preserved intact in this historical district.

Strolling on the old streets, you will see the magnificent and elegant quasi-baroque buildings as well as traditional, simple Minnan street shops. There are also diverse old trading companies that sell souvenirs. Therefore, many tourists visit on holidays to experience the nostalgic atmosphere specific to the old Taipei. Each year, when Lunar New Year is approaching, Dihua Street will turn into a bustling street of New Year goods.

Mayor of Taipei City, Ko Wen-je said: “From old historical buildings through unique old streets to all kinds of innovative elements, Dadaocheng is not only a busy old town, but also a living and vibrant urban museum that breaks through spatial imitations.” These words are probably the best portrayal of Dadaocheng.

A reminder: Dadaocheng mostly sells breakfast and lunch. Some restaurants close when everything is sold out. If you want to try some delicacies there, remember to go early. Everything will be gone if you arrive too late.

In the Dihua Street commercial district, cafes are everywhere. Yet, the opening of AMA Café has its own special meaning.

"AMA" refers to the Taiwanese women forced to become comfort women in the past. On the table of the café on the first floor, several feminist books can be found. Meanwhile, the exhibition hall of peace and women's rights is located on the back of the first floor and the entire second floor.

Pictures of these women are hung in the hallway with the topic “their own times,” faithfully presenting their happiness and sorrow.

What is worth mentioning is that there are many art pieces related to the common reed in the hall, which represent former comfort women's strong resilience against constant suffering.

The exhibition preserves many historical documents on comfort women. Through images and texts, the stories of comfort women are recorded. The purpose is not to make people hate each other ; yet, the exhibition aims to lead people to focus on and care about human rights issues and to empathize with others' sufferings.

“I would like a monaka set, thank you!”

The freshly baked “monaka” is a confection especially for moon watching in the ancient Japanese court. The crispy glutinous rice wafers sandwich cold and silky azuki bean paste. With a cup of black tea from Alishan, you can leisurely enjoy the confection that represents the spirit of Japanese tea and snack culture on the veranda next to the bustling street and feel the changes in history.

The word “Nurturing” in the original Chinese name is the initial intention of the founder, who wished to nurture people’s souls with confections and convey the sweet happiness to customers. The shop uses the best agriculture products in Taiwan to take advantage of excellent seasonal harvests, while the Wagashi-making technique aims to fulfill your five senses.

Established 60 years ago, Lin's Wagashi Confectionery was previously situated on Nanjing West Road. Now, it has been relocated to the Dadaocheng commercial district with creative and cultural elements.

Apart from the signature monaka, there are also a wide variety of Japanese confections, such dorayaki and mini buns. If you are a fan of confections, don’t miss the shop when visiting Daodaocheng.

In the scorching summer days, you will definitely want to have some summer dessert after a meal to get rid of the greasy feeling. If that's the case, Summer Tree Sweet on Dihua Street is your top choice.

The name“Summer Tree” has the following meaning: “When children are enjoying our delicious desserts, they will feel like resting under a tall tree in a hot summer day. While a breeze blows by gently, their mouths and hearts are filled with sweetness.”

The owner insists on using natural and healthy ingredients to make the desserts, which will allow its customers to maintain their health while enjoying the tasty sweets. Among all the desserts, the almond tofu is the best known, whose cold and smooth texture appeals to many customers.

貓空趣漫遊

早期居民看到大坑溪、溪床岩石凹凸不平成皺摺狀且多洞穴,稱之為「坑」,漢語念「ㄋㄧㄠˋ」;日據時期因「坑」不雅,而改成閩南語發音相近之意「貓空」,所取代延續至今。 其實皺摺且多洞穴地形乃因在河川上游之處,河床岩石質堅軟硬不一,湍急的河水攜帶細砂石不斷地鑽蝕之後,河床逐漸形成圓形或圓形大小不一的洞穴,洞穴上緣較小底部較大,像泡茶用的壺所以將這樣和河水鑽蝕的孔洞稱為壺穴。 貓空另一舊地名「山豬櫥」,早期山地多山豬,常出來偷吃農民耕作的農作物,農民便挖土坑設陷阱「土坑上方鋪上樹枝及茅草做為掩飾,上面再放蕃薯為誘餌誘補山豬,山豬因而掉入土坑內被捕捉」,因此稱為「山豬櫥」。
