#21 Goose & Seafood
Lonely Planet review for #21 Goose & Seafood
This is it, your for-real local dining experience – great food in a genuine Taiwanese environment (sometimes there's a guy wandering around selling betel nut, and you can't get much more Taiwanese than that). The place gets its name from its two specialities, roasted goose meat (hanging on a hook behind a window by the front of the restaurant) and fish so fresh that a few will be staring at you as you stand on the sidewalk waiting for a table. And wait you might – the place is very popular with locals and Japanese tourists alike – the food is just that good. Some specialities besides goose and fish include fresh shrimp served grilled or sautéed, excellent clam soup made with shredded ginger, and some of the best Kung Pao chicken we've ever had. There's no English menu, but its not a big problem as much of what's being served is also on display, and, in a pinch, a few of the waitresses speak a smidgen of English.
