Situated behind the Hsinchu Ambassador
Hotel, Yummy is a classy-looking Chinese restaurant.
The simple yet comfortable interior decor exudes a relaxing
dining atmosphere. There are all kinds of Chinese dishes
available here, from the often-seen Chicken Meatballs
on a Hotplate, Beefsteak on a Hotplate, and frog leg
dishes to various other kinds of beef dishes. They also
have seafood stir fries and other fish dishes, and offer
a Southeast Asian dessert special, "Mo Mo Ja Ja",
which is only available during the summer months.
The owner recommends a dish popular
among regular customers, their very own marinated Miso
Spare Ribs, which is very delicious indeed. The Mola
Mola Fish is also a favorite here and is not easily
available elsewhere. The Mola Mola Fish with XO sauce
is very fresh; combined with green vegetables and its
special sauce, it goes down well with a bowl of rice.
They also offer "cabbage rice", which is rice
cooked with cabbage and other ingredients; its special
flavor is unique to Yummy. Although most of the cuisine
here comes in big servings, the friendly owner is always
happy to make smaller portions to cater for customers
who come here in smaller groups but would still like
to try a good variety of dishes. After your main course,
soup and seasonal fruit, try one of the owner's aunt's
homemade pickled plums, which are well-liked, too!
Since the owner himself is an educator,
a lot of his customers are from this line of work, too.
The restaurant is often packed, so reservations are
recommended. If you are a guest at the Ambassador Hotel,
you can make a reservation through the hotel, and the
hotel staff will even show you the way there.
