Shih Sundry Goods

Taiwanese in Taichung

A multitalented family built this graceful rustic restaurant with scraps. The meals they prepare are tasty and honest using only organic ingredients (homegrown or from nearby farms). The six-course lunch comprises soup and salad, home-baked bread, three stir-fries, and dessert. Book two days in advance as they don't usually entertain walk-ins.

However, if there are only a couple of you and you haven't booked, you can try your luck by just showing up. The restaurant also serves pizza, salad and cake. There's also a nook selling children's wear made with used fabrics. Bus 41 from Taichung train station stops at the Taichung Armed Forces General Hospital (國軍台中總醫院) across the road.
