Hakka Restaurant 晉江茶館
The internet is really a great way of finding new food. Recently my cousin read about this Hakka restaurant near her old place near 古亭 Guting MRT station that she hadn’t known about during the 5 or 10 years she’s lived in that area. And it’s no wonder as this restaurant is also continuing last entry’s inconspicuous restaurant theme. There’s no great neon sign like so many places in Taipei have, and it is also located in an inconspicuous alley. So unless someone tells you about it, you see it on the internets, or somehow stumble across it, it is difficult to find. Luckily we tagged along with the cousin and her husband to try out the place.
The food is quite good, a bit on the salty side, so you definitely need rice to go along with all the dishes. We ordered dishes that were recommended online, but next time we go, we’ll definitely order some other dishes because as the waitress was bringing food to other tables, my mom and cousin were both like, wow that looks good too! The dishes are a bit on the pricey side, as you can see on the menu below. But the portions are not bad, and I think it’s worth the price. Quite enjoyable!
