Anyone who decides to visit Taiwan should take the LRT (Light Rail Transit). And anyone who takes the LRT should definitely visit the Maverick Sandwich shop. Just getting there is a surreal journey in itself, involving the MRT, then LRT, then traveling down a hill (by elevator or foot), and finally, crossing a busy highway. You have to be a special kind of traveller to make this journey.
But, once you get there, you can feel the isolation (and desolation) of your surroundings. It's as peaceful and quiet as any place could be. After walking down a gravel road, you will come across a Cargo Box and a single cook, and he will make you the best Cuban Sandwich you've ever had. Close by, there is a cage with a squirrel and an exotic bird, sitting side by side with a Motorbike shop (also within a Cargo Box).
So, if you're looking for an otherworldly experiece, or something from the fiction pages of a comic magazine (or storyline of a Japanese sci-fi show), then this is the experience for you. Not to mention, the food is pretty great too!
