Melanie and I met with my grandfather for lunch again, this time at a restaurant in Ximen.
The restaurant was down in the basement of a department store, down in the B1 food court. It was very delicious and affordable - mainly serving Beiping-style (Northern Chinese) cuisine. This includes great stuff like Dao Xiao Mien (knife-cut noodles) in a delicious beef broth, Xiao Long Bao (steamed dumplings), etc.
It was great to see my grandfather again. It had been a few months since we last had a chance to get together - mainly because we live on opposite sides of Taipei, and neither of us actually drives here. We did not have a chance to spend a whole lot of time together because he was a little tired due to the trek from where he lives over to Ximen, but it was still fun to get to hang out and chat for a while.
