  • Jinshan Old Street

Jinshan Old Street (also known as Jinbaoli Old Street) was a bustling commercial street in the Qing period. Dating back over 300 years, it is the oldest street in Jinshan. The stall in front of Guang'an Temple at the end of the street is known for selling some of the best duck meat in Taiwan. A variety of other specialty dishes can be enjoyed here. Especially famous are the fried pork, oyster crisps, taro cake, and roasted red heart sweet potato. Must-buy souvenirs here include bite-sized pastries and the sesame pastries sold at Ayu Foods. Strolling down the street, one can see vestiges of the area's past heydays and savor the tastes from an earlier time.
