Taichung's only purely Turkish (and Turkish-owned) restaurant, Anatolia has moved to this new location, where it serves the same full menu of authentic cuisine. Besides favorites like Beyti Kebab (NT$310), menu additions include a new Pide (pizza), topped with homemade beef sausage, plus the Mixed Kebab. Don't forget desserts like Turkish Ice Cream (NT$90, 3 scoops) and savory Sutlac rice pudding. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
