The place is worth a visit, especially with a taiwanese friend that can help you out with the menu. I cannot say they were pretending not to use eggs as they were serving omelettes and they were making it right there in a corner of the stall. They definitely use eggs, but I had a nice meal with soup and noodles.
I recommend this place because it is a good vegetarian restaurant/stall, better then the buffet options that are always closed when I arrive and/or where the food is always almost cold.

Pros: cheap, fun, freshly cooked food
Cons: not vegan/vegetarian owner, menu in chinese only

Fast & Cheap, but definitely NOT VEGAN

As other reviewers have noted, this place is cheap & cheerful, and a good chance to try a more traditional eatery, and so close to the main station. It's also a quick and easy meal.

However, don't be fooled by the claim (on the top of the menu) that it doesn't use egg. There's probably egg in the fake meat, and there's certainly egg (but probably not oyster) in the oyster omelette - I saw the big crate of eggs by the grill. And they don't even claim to not use milk, and I saw milk in the fridge beside my seat.

So the problem is that it's hard to know what doesn't contain fake meat (which probably won't be vegan) so I don't really recommend it, at least if you can't communicate with them in Chinese what you want. And given how busy they were, I doubt there'd be time for that anyway.

If you just want a vegan meal, it would probably be easier to just go around to the Loving Hut a few minutes away.

Pros: cheap, fast, by Taipei Main Station
Cons: difficult to know what's vegan, they say they don't use egg when they do, difficult to understand (English) menu

Just across from the west bus station of Taipei main station. Unassuming place. Ask for the English menu if you can't read Chinese. Match the characters from the menu to the order card on the table. Mark on the card how many of each dish you want, hand it to the staff at the cooking area. Definitely recommend the wanton soup and oyster omelette. Food here is typical , unpretentious Taiwanese food.

Pros: central location , cheap, tasty
Cons: may appear intimidating for non chinese

Very busy at lunchtime. We ordered a bowl of sesame noodles (ma-jong mien), a noodle soup, both without MSG (no "wei-su"),
and a side of seaweed ("hai dai"). Food tasted average, a bit on the boring side.

Pros: fast
Cons: small crowded place, boring/average food
