During my 2 weeks travel around Taiwan, I noticed that Taiwanese breakfast are rather simple and choices are quite limited. I found the breakfast food a bit oily as they are mostly pan fried or deep fried [cruellers, pancakes, carrot cakes etc]. Correct me if I am wrong but in Malaysia, we have a wider choice of breakfast food.
There are numerous stalls along the narrow street alleys and around the street corners everywhere in the various cities and towns. Most of them sells buns, spring onion pancakes, sandwiches, soya bean drink, fried cruellers, guotieh [pan fried dumplings], siew long pau. etc. Compared to Malaysian pricing, breakfast is quite expensive in Taiwan. I was told that, noodles are not breakfast food in Taiwan.

However, breakfast served at various hotels that we stayed were commendable with wide range to choose. They have typical Taiwanese and western breakfast. Coffee and tea are also available.
Breakfast served at Honeydew Hotel, Taichung [just 2 minutes from Taichung Railway Station] was good despite the hotel room for two being quite small, looks old and shaky bed. Overall is still acceptable for the price we paid. Booking made through Agoda.
Breakfast served at Yo Tong Regency Hotel, Taipei was also tasty, good and unlimited portion. The hotel is situated along Zhongxiao Road, just a minute walk from the MRT station. Location wise is good and very convenient despite the fact that the hotel is on the 13th floor of a building.
