Next to Plaza International Hotel, this is a car wash by day, but transforms into a popular Taiwanese stir-fry restaurant showcasing Taiwanese late-night delicacies. Boosted by word of mouth and affordable prices, this is the place to savor a combination of traditional Taiwanese stir-fry dishes (including seafood) and beer (Taiwan Beer NT$70, Gold Medal NT$60). --By Lin Fu-shan

A: Garlic-Flavored Grouper (NT$199) and Three-Cup Chicken Butt (NT$199) are delectable selections, as are Cumin Mutton (NT$199), Fried Cuttlefish with Salted Egg Yolk (NT$280) and seasonal bamboo shoots, baked with cheese.

B: Owner and passionate gourmet Nan-Ge has been interviewed by many media outlets. The juicy, tender Fat Goose (NT$320) features a layer of crispy skin.

C: Tsai-wei (leftovers) Soup (NT$499), popularized at traditional Taiwanese wedding banquets, is also offered here. Fifty fresh ingredients such as shrimp, fish skin, squid, pork chops, bamboo shoots and goose wings are cooked over low heat for two days to create this favorite aromatic, delicious soup.

Seafood and goose is a traditional Taiwanese beer-drinking food combo found at this place, on the corner of Taichung Port and MinQuan roads for almost 20 years. Although Hong Lu now serves lunch, it is after dark that crowds of loyal customers--including the likes of five-star hotel chef Li Ashu--especially gather here for food and drinks. --By Niang Chen

A: Traditional Taiwanese dishes are the big, long-time attraction here.

B: Specialties include Pan Fried Goose (NT$200), Peppery Spiral Snails (NT$160) and Spicy Stinky Tofu (NT$100). A signature dish, the tofu is cooked with broth, spicy oil and onions with celery sprinkled on top for a delightful fragrance and flavor.

C: High Mountain Bamboo Shoots (NT$150), Salty Egg with Trumpet Mushrooms (NT$120) and Sichuan Pepper Chicken Wings (NT$200) all go great with beer. The bamboo shoots, from Nanzhuang Farmers Association, are tender, yet crisp, while the trumpet mushrooms are flavored with salty eggs. Sichuan pepper is a prominent ingredient in the juicy chicken wings.
