What to see and eat in Taidong with the family?

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

+1 to Pete's Pizza, super nice guy with a great pizza operation going. Very good crust IMO. Pretty busy when we were there. Open Wed-Sun for dinner (lunch is weekends only).
Could do with a couple more beers on the menu and also change those curtains upstairs (!).

Also went to the National Museum of Prehistory, a fair way out of town but good value at $80.
Disappointing maze outside though, why can't they do things properly? A maze ain't a maze unless you can get befuddled and lost. My 5 year old was in and through in 40 seconds.
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

Back through Taidong AGAIN this week.
The Indian restaurant near Watson's closed earlier this year (or at least moved from that location) :cry:

We somehow ended up at Formaggio 新生路700-2號, pizza and pasta - I had a pretty decent risotto, and the pizza seemed reasonable, although not quite as good as at Pete's.
More of a menu for carnivores than vegetarians though.
