Jaozi (Dumplings) in Jao Jan Feng Restaurant in Taichung
The following list of Taichung restaurants is a completely personal one. The list includes the restaurants we visit more often, where we like to come back again and again.
Light Taste - This restaurant offers both traditional Hakka dishes and western food. We tried the Hakka ones.
Tian Tian Jian Mian - Noodles Every Day - This is one of the restaurants that are currently riding high in Taichung. They serve superb noodles in the style of Lanzhou.
Jao jan Feng - Dumplings and Xiaolongbao - By far our favorite dumplings restaurant in Taichung. Years ago I have been told the owner learned his skills in the famous Dingtaifung in Taipei.
Ming Garden - This japanese restaurant is hidden apart in a very quiet road very close to Taichung Harbour Road and to Mitsukoshi department store (Xin Guang San Yue).
Samwongarden - Likely the best korean restaurant in Taichung and one of the best in all Taiwan - ask Korean expats that come here to dine even from Taipei!
Li Lai Ju - To put it simply, Li Lai Ju is among the best vegetarian restaurants in Taichung and one we wholeheartedly recommend ... we have been loyal customers for years.
Palio Pizzeria - Unbelievable! A real Italian pizza in Taichung (actually in Dakeng!). The best Italian pizza I ever ate in Taiwan!
