Western restaurants in Hualien?

If you plan to visit (recommended!), call ahead to set up the menu items you want. Then enjoy!


Yup, that’s the place. The chef and his wife were great and explained everything in detail (I’m sorry, but my Chinese sucks so my explanations aren’t nearly as detailed…plus even my wife didn’t know what half the plants and ingredients were). They seemed very proud of their food and endeavored to make it very special for their guests. Anyway, if this is something that you can make fit your budget, I really recommend it.

I’m near Shitiping (shittyping?) on my way down the coast, and this fits right in. I’ll give a call tomorrow to check it out.

My wife and I are joking that our 2 week tour of Taiwan is turning into a tasting of western restaurants and local natural landmarks and visits.

I’ll definitely be checking that out. Thanks for the introduction and review.

Jany’s Dutch Pancake House

Not bad at all. And a good addition to the available Western restaurants in Hualien. Small place in a 3-4 story home. They have sweet and salty varieties of pancakes.
