Aborigine-theme restaurant Alamu, situated on the Jin Shan side of the Hsinchu Science Park, promotes an understanding of aboriginal culture through cuisine, enjoyed in a suitable atmosphere. In addition to the one-of-a-kind exterior decorations, this passion for things Aborigine is illustrated with aboriginal music and owner Miss Sun Yi-Xian's painstaking interior decor.
Miss Sun not only picks out and purchases the freshest, best-quality ingredients each day from the local markets, but also pays great attention to the preparation of the food in the healthiest, most natural and simplest way. Former Cantonese chef Mr. Luo recommends the Millet in Hot Pot. He has combined Cantonese, Japanese, Chinese and Aborigine-style cooking, and suggests that diners add the Thousand-Year-Old Eggs (Pi Dan), You Tiao [deep-fried bread sticks], White Fish and Chicken last in order to make the soup base more delicious.

Miss Sun also recommended the Pork with Betel Flower, a cold dish that consists of betel flowers and wild pork with homemade curry sauce dribbled over it. The Steamed Fish in Bamboo Shoot is also highly recommended. Specially-prepared bamboo shells are lined with fragrant bamboo leaves, symbolizing the intimate relationship between aboriginal people and bamboo. Then fish that has been specially brought in from JianShi County is placed on top. This dish has a special character of its own.

Miss Sun is from the Bunun tribe, so rather rare Bunun dishes are available here. There is also the Alamu Special Dish; made from vegetables picked in the mountains, this popular dish is prepared in a natural way that emphasizes its freshness. Apart from special aboriginal dishes, there are also the usual stir-fry and seafood dishes. Finally, why not try some aboriginal millet wine after dinner?
The best thing about this restaurant is that, after your meal, you're are invited to move to another clean table to enjoy their fruit and dessert. This kind of caring service certainly makes a great impression!
