The city of Cooperstown, USA, is said to be the birthplace of baseball. Appropriately, it is also home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the sport's great museum which houses an immense collection of baseball memorabilia. Cooperstown Restaurant, located on the corner of SangShin alley just off of JhongJheng Road, between MinZu and HePing Roads, is owner Tino Hsu's personal homage to the hall of fame and to the sport of baseball.

Opened less than a year ago, the restaurant is filled with over a thousand autographed baseball items including balls, bats, caps and uniforms with signatures from such notable players as Hank Aaron, Ken Griffey Jr. and Alex Rodriguez. You don't need, however, to be a baseball fan to enjoy Cooperstown. The restaurant offers a wide range of excellent Western style meals. Cooperstown has an extensive selection of pasta dishes that range from traditional to exotic. The Spaghetti with Bacon in Pumpkin Cream Sauce (NT$170), Spaghetti with Chicken in Lavender Cream Sauce (NT$170), and Spaghetti with Sausage in Mustard Pesto Sauce (NT$180) are three delicious examples of the latter. For those who are not quite so adventurous there is the Spaghetti with Rosemary Chicken (NT$220) and the Baked Risotto with Chicken in Mushroom Cream Sauce (NT$190). Any of the pasta meals can be upgraded to include a salad and drink for NT$49, or soup, salad, dessert and a drink for NT$99.

The Lamb Chops with Mint Sauce, Roasted Sirloin Steak (both NT$450) or the Salmon Fillet in White Wine Sauce (NT$420) are all excellent choices for those looking for something other than pasta. Drinks and dessert are included with the above. There are also a number of American style dishes including burgers, fries, baked potatoes and quesadillas. English speakers should note that this section of Cooperstown's menu is not translated, so you'll need to ask your server about these items.
