Situated on busy Guang Fu Road, Chuan Jia Hakka Restaurant has a unique wooden shop front that makes it stand out from the rest of the buildings on either side. Inside, all three floors are all decorated in what looks to be traditional Hakka style. Yet the owner claims that the restaurant's architectural style is traditional Taiwanese. The antique-style decorations, calligraphy wall hangings, and traditional-style furniture and accessories fill the place with an air of old Taiwan, as if one has stepped back in time. It is easy to momentarily forget that one is in the middle of the busy Science Park area while dining in this relaxed atmosphere and admiring its interior!
Established eight years ago, Chuan Jia Hakka Restaurant has all the typical Hakka dishes, including Hakka Stir Fry, White Meat with Crushed Garlic, Minced Meat with Pickled Vegetables, Sausages with Shredded Ginger and other stir fries, all priced around NT$150. The Hakka-Style Chicken, with its special dipping sauce, is well worth a mention, priced around NT$300. This chicken is vastly different from the Cantonese-style chicken; whether you dribble tangerine sauce or Chinese basil sauce, they both add to the flavor. The owner especially recommends one dish, the Stewed Fish. The sand perch is stewed for eight to nine hours before it is brought to the table. So, not only are the fish bones softened by then, but the flavors have also really seeped into it. And at only NT$50 per fish, it is a great bargain.
Dine at Chuan Jia Hakka Restaurant and you will be presented with a plate of Hakka Mochi. The chewy mochi is very delicious when dipped in the peanut powder. Also, they supply unlimited Malt Tea, Oolong Tea and the sweet and sour Plum Tea. All the dishes here go well with either a drink of wine or some rice. Luckily, the rice here is all-you-can-eat, so order up a few authentic Hakka soups and dishes, and get ready to eat to your heart's content!
