Jing Hai An Shrimp Fishing

(04) 2313-0623
145, QingHai Rd, Sec 1, Xitun Dist
Currently open 24 hours/day (may be subject to change)

Although it seems unassuming from the outside, Jing Hai An Shrimp Fishing has established a loyal crowd of locals who are equally attracted by the quality of the shrimp in its pools and its convenient central location. For most of the year, this place is open 24 hours a day, although the kitchen only runs from 5:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Outside of those hours, you have to cook whatever you catch yourself. When the weather gets colder, opening and kitchen hours change, as do the shrimp, which are replaced with giant crabs and lobsters, making it worthwhile to brave a few hours poolside on a chilly evening. Hourly fishing rates start at NT$300 and there's the usual option of having the kitchen help with the cooking for an extra charge. A sampling of Salty Shrimp (NT$600), Baby Squid, (NT$250), Spicy Chicken (NT$250) and Fried Vegetables (NT$80) are more than enough for a filling meal. --By Paul Adams

Sha Sha Jiao Shrimp Fishing

(04) 2389-3429
460, LongFu Rd, Sec 4, Nantun Dist
Open 24 hours/day

Located in an up-and-coming part of Taichung, Sha Sha Jiao Shrimp Fishing has already made a splash among shrimp-fishing aficionados. This 24-hour establishment, also featuring KTV facilities for late-night parties, contains two shrimping pools that are typically packed on weekends and most evenings. The pricing is very reasonable--NT$250 to NT$800 per hour--with the rate decreasing for longer stays. As with most similar joints, you can catch and eat as much as you want for free as long as you cook it yourself at the provided grills. However, you can also pay a little extra to have the chefs prepare your catch for you, which is certainly worth considering as the food here is excellent. A plate of enormous Thai Lemon Shrimp (NT$550), Gong Bao Chicken (NT$150), and Fried Mountain Vegetables (NT$160) was more than enough for two people. The fridges are also stocked with a wide beer selection and some soft drinks to keep people fishing and eating into the late hours. --By Paul Adams
