“Very good”
Review of Taichung Meatballs

Taichung Meatballs
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 9, 2017

Only 3 menu to choose from
- Taiwan meatball
- Rice noodle soup
- Fishball soup

Not a fan of Taiwan meatball, as it is wrapped by a thick layer of sticky rice. I've tried other shop, but this one is definitely better.
We also ordered their fishball soup, which is very good, you might end up ordering two.

Place is well ventilated, and from the time you took your seat, Taiwan meatball is already offered in front of you, as it's the default order.

Overall, it's worth a try, especially when you are close by. But I wouldn't say it's a must try.

Not really a Taiwanese style meatball lover since I first tried few years ago, but this meat ball changed my impression on Taiwanese meatball.
Should go and try it yourself.

This place has been around since 1933 and the flavors hasn't changed from the last 30 years. A must for all foreign visitors searching real local food you can't get normally!

A porkball covered in a gelatinous wrap with sauces most westerners haven't tasted. A nice balance of sweet and salty.

Don't forget to get one of the 2 soups options. The menu is simple, just 3 options. K.I.S.S!

The food is delicious. I always order two meatballs and one rice noodle soup. If you favor spicy, they provide their own chili paste. The environment is simple and clean.

I read about this place in the Rough guide book, it's a large restaurant, a pretty plain tiled interior, they only really seem to do meatballs and soup. The meatballs come in a sort of thick rubbery skin, I could have done with a knife to cut through it! Don't let the description put you off this place is well worth seeking out, the meatballs are delicous, there are no menus in English by the way but the staff are cheerful and helpful so it's not a problem.
