First of all here is a link to The Southern Taiwan Directory :
I don’t eat out much anymore ( I am doing the low fat diet thing at home , and if I do eat out I stick with a few trusted favourites:
Smokey Joe’s II (Tex-Mex) #318 Tzuyu 2nd Rd. Tel: 557-8655 (part of the Amy’s chain of restaurants.
Great service and a nice variety of food (it is a bit like the best of Amy’s).
A special mention to Angel and Becky who are simply amazingly friendly and helpful.
Just the other day Becky helped me out by showing me where I could buy some of the products they use in their cooking (sour cream, fresh kidney beans etc.) She even drew me a map and got me a few phone numbers.
Another great place is Hola’s (Spanish)
#578 Heti Road. Sanmin Tel: 343-3045
Run by a Spanish guy this place has some beautiful dishes on it’s menu. Things are not cheap here, but definitely worth the price.
It is also non-smoking (even though I am a smoker I really dislike the smell of smoke when I am eating), but for the hardcore puffers there are a few tables outside.
At the last Chinese Valentines Day, Holas served an amazing 6 course dinner. STUNNING!!
Another restaurant in the Amy’s Chain is called Mamamia (Italian) #186 Chungcheng 2nd Rd. Lingya Tel: 222-5627 .
