This is an overrated place to have goose. Lots of better restaurants all over Taiwan. However I was only in Hualien for a short while so cannot compare to restaurants in this area. The goose was average and other xiao cai were just average or below average.

Both of them were delicious, specially... More

We took away a quarter of the goose and really enjoyed the tender breast meat with a few drinks...so much so we went back the second day and got more!

A restaurant with the fell range of foods capable of being extracted from a goose, but be sure you temper you taste for it. Unfortunately, I overgoosed and the taste of goose fat stayed well into the following day. If you heed my warning, the goose meals were delicious to start but became a bit bland once I overwhelmed my... More

Goose blanched in salted water is the speciality here, dipped in special sauce makes for a heavenly combo. The new dish of chicken cooked in oil then chilled is undoubted one of the best ways to let the chicken flavor shine. Pork kidney in sesame sauce is a bit bland for my taste. Recommended.

The goose was delicious. Ask for their special sauce if they don't serve it automatically. They will give you a paper to indicate your orders - get the back (wei 尾) part of the goose if you like something more fatty (yum!). I got the drumstick. It's reasonably priced. I got some fried bird's nest fern (abt 150NT) too! Pleasantly... More

I was there with 2 Japanese, and we all loved the food. We had their signature goose dish and were recommended several great dishes e.g. a sort of fern stir-fry with black beans (I think) which was unique to Taiwan (Hualien?), pork skin as thin as fish skin with chewy texture and deep fried roe with mayonnaise toppings. Go in... More
