Apparently sea cucumbers are quite a delicacy in many Asian countries. I was wondering if anyone knows of good places to try sea cucumber in Taiwan, or if there are good places to purchase them?
It's not uncommon, so you can buy them in any traditional market. There are, however, the real one and the "fake" one. I will recommend going to a decent restaurant and order a dish with it. Most fancier Chinese restaurants should have it.
You can find sea cucumber in markets near harbor or hotel restaurant. The price is around NT$400/600g in port markets, but it depends on some factors. In hotel restaurant, a set of sea cucumber in Evergreen Hotel is about NT$2000.
I think there are meals of sea cucumber in most 5-star hotel. If you can read Chinese, have a check on this website for this dish.
