Good food in Taichung

Postby TJG » 22 Feb 2012, 09:51

Hi everybody!

I'm fairly new to Taiwan. Already I'm pretty much fed up with what’s on offer, food wise, in my neighbourhood. Sure, there's a lot of good food. But I want to try a more formal restaurant, not upscale though. I'm really interested about trying the food which I heard about prior to arriving in Taichung.

Kung pao, fried oysters, steamed fish etc.

Anybody have any good restaurant suggestions? Preferably in Town or heading towards Longjing...

Enjoy your week,

TJG

Good food in Taichung

Have you tried any kuai chao (quick fry) places? Some of them are really good for what you are looking for although in my experience they were better in Taipei. The more South you go the more Taiwanese the cuisine gets. You have to try each place individually.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

If you can read Chinese or can use Chrome's auto translate website function, you can try out my site here: www.foodjing.com

We are still working on functionality, but there are over 1000 searchable menus in Taichung there.

Awesome site, thanks!!

Also, I found out what I was doing wrong when looking for good stuff to eat. Had some awesome fresh and superbly cooked fish tonigt! So... Case closed:)

You could also see if Food Jing has any dim sum close to you.
