--By Mike Brown, translated by Annie Liu

With a view of Carrefour across the Love River, Mr. and Mrs. Tsai of MeGao Rice Shop carry on a culinary tradition started in 1957 by Mr. Tsai's grandfather. Although the place operates behind a relatively ordinary facade, the highly popular 'MeGao' they serve amply makes up for any dearth in aesthetics. Their 'MeGao' (NT$30), a savory sticky rice dish in a rich sauce with pork, is created in a labor-intensive four-hour process. At the roadside stand that serves as a counter for ordering and paying, one can select from overhead photos of their various dishes, which are all made from scratch on the premises. The Steamed Egg with Mushrooms and Pork (NT$25) and Fried Pork Rib in Soup (NT$25) are rightly in demand. Because regular customers come from all walks of life, and have for many years, it is evident that this places serves great food.
