Retrospective 懷舊的 4:Eating in Taitung City 台東市裡的餐廳

For the "Retrospective" entries I'll be revisiting posts from ten years ago.  The post referenced below is from 2009. 在這些 "懷舊的" 文章裡看十年前的文章.  下列的文章是2009年寫的.

The original version of "Eating in Taitung City台東市裡的餐廳" is to be found in the Blog Archive 3 entry.  I've added comments below the italicized text. 原本的 "Eating in Taitung City台東市裡的餐廳" 在Blog Archive 很久很久以前的文章 3的文章.  我在每一段下面加入新的意見.



Any list of "good restaurants" in Taitung City is bound to be almost entirely subjective. Even so, any list of "good restaurants" will at least steer people away from the unquestionably bad restaurants, of which Taitung has not a few.臺東任何的餐廳的排名都有很強的主觀性,就算如此,還是可以幫我們過濾掉一些被公認為難吃的餐廳.

The worst restaurant I've been to was down an alley near the Ba Fang Yun Ji Dumpling Restaurant.  This restaurant's specialty was dumplings.  We figured "Great, we like dumplings!", went in, and ordered some.  Soon after we discovered parts of a cockroach in one of our dumplings.  Thankfully this restaurant is gone now. 我去過的餐廳中, 最差的是八方雲集附近的小巷子裡的一家餃子館.  我們那時候都想: "太好了!  我們喜歡餃子!"  進去後點了幾籠.  開始吃了幾分鐘後才發現餃子皮上黏了蟑螂殘骸.  還好這家餃子館已經停止營業了.

Lately my favorite restaurant is the Han Guan Curry Restaurant on Jong Shing Road. This restaurant is on the way to RT Mart, near the Naruwan Hotel. Their curry is excellent, and they are very friendly. Most curry restaurants are very sparing with the vegetables they put inside their curry sauce. Han Guan is not, and I appreciate that.最近我最喜歡的餐廳是中興路上的涵館.它位在去大潤發的路上,靠近娜路彎飯店.那裡的咖哩很好吃而且服務也很親切 ,很多餐廳的咖哩都很稀淡,但是涵館的真是料多實在喔!

Han Guan closed down a while back.  I wrote the original post when they were on Jong Shing Road, but they later moved to another location on Shin Sheng Road.  Their food was good for a while, but the quality sharply declined later on. 涵館已經停止營業了.  我寫原本的文章時他們在中興路上, 之後搬到新生路.  他們一開始時的料理很好吃, 可是最後品質就差了.


Not that it matters that much.  The Yi Pin Wu Restaurant on Geng Sheng Road is just as good as Han Guan ever was. 
打岔一下,  目前在更生路上的儀品屋跟以前一開始的涵館一樣好吃.

For good vegetarian food, I go to the little restaurant on Jeng Chi Road, the one not far from the intersection of Jeng Chi Road and Chuan Guang Road, just across from the vocational high school. I'm sorry, but their name completely escapes me at the moment. Their food is very reasonably priced, and also very good. The only thing I don't like there is the "Thai style noodles," which are so spicy they don't really taste like anything except hot peppers.如果是素食餐廳,我通常去正氣路上跟傳廣路交叉口附近的一家小吃店,它們的名字我真的記不起來 ,但是你只要到臺東商專對面就可以找到,它們的食物中,我唯一不喜歡的就是泰國酸辣麵,因為真的好辣,完成吃不出辣以外的味道.

This vegetarian restaurant has also moved, though in this case it's still open.  I can't remember where they moved to.  I think it might be further down Jeng Chi Road. 這家素食餐廳也搬家了, 目前還在營業.  我忘記他們搬到哪裡去了,  好像在正氣路上, 比較靠近市區的那一段.


There are a lot of good vegetarian restaurants in Taitung.  I've heard that this buffet in Beinan is one of the better ones. 台東有很多好吃的素食餐廳.  我聽說這家卑南的自助餐滿不錯. 

If I had to pick a third favorite restaurant it would be the Lao Lin restaurant on Jung Hua Road. This restaurant is just across from Taitung University, and right next to the big hot pot restaurant. Their "ma-po" tofu is wonderful, and I have been going there for years. There's not a bad or indifferent thing on their entire menu.另外,我還喜歡東大前中華路上的老林,他們的麻婆豆腐真的很棒,我常常去吃,除了麻婆豆腐,他們菜單上的其他餐點也都很值得一試.

I got the WORST case of food poisoning from Lao Lin the last time I went there.  The food also didn't taste very good.  They've since closed down.  There's a Sichuan-style restaurant not far from where they used to be, and the mapo tofu made there isn't bad. 我最後一次吃老林之後拉肚子,  食物也不好吃.  他們停止營業了.  在他們附近有家川菜餐廳,  那家餐廳的麻婆豆腐不錯.

Which might leave you wondering: "Doesn't this guy ever eat western food?" My answer to that is "Not really." I go to KFC maybe once a month, and that's about it. I cannot stand McDonald's. If that makes me strange, so be it.可能你會好奇我吃不吃西餐,答案是:很少.我可能一個月去一次肯塔基,而且我很不喜歡麥當勞.

I still eat McDonald's breakfast.  In the original post I was just talking about their lunch/dinner menu.  I think for the money their breakfast is still one of the best in town.  KFC?  I stopped going there years ago.  Their food was always disappointing.  Taitung has a Mos Burger now, so there's even less reason to go. 我會去麥當勞吃早餐.  我在原來的文章裡討論的是午餐/晚餐的菜單.  以台東來說, 麥當勞的早餐很划算.  肯德基呢?  我很久沒有去了, 因為他們的餐點讓我很失望.  而且台東現在有摩斯漢堡, 所以真的不用去那裏.


Other good local options in terms of Western food include Sam's Burger, Uncle Pete's Pizza any of the countless steak houses in and around Taitung City.  For the record, my favorite steak restaurant is the Gaya Hotel - but be warned it'll cost ya. 當地的西餐有很多好的選擇, 例如:Sam's Burger, 披薩阿伯跟多家牛排館.  我最喜歡的牛排餐廳是Gaya Hotel, 可是要先有心理準備,  那裡會讓你的荷包大失血. 

What follows are some honorable mentions:以下這些餐廳也很不錯:

1. The "Peace" restaurant, near the intersection of Bo-Ai Road and Shin Sheng Road. Good spaghetti, and not expensive."布蕾斯"位於新生路上,靠近博愛路,那裡的意大利麵很好吃而且平價.

The "Peace" Restaurant was one of the many restaurants in that now-vacant building next to the Mos Burger.  Their quesadillas were good. 布蕾斯以前在摩斯漢堡旁邊.  他們的quesadillas很好吃.

2. "Tai Shr Fu", or the big red place on the corner of Tie Hua Road and Jung Hua Road. A good place if you're in a hurry and want to eat fried chicken."
𡘙師傅"位在中華路與鐵花路交叉口,是一個快速而且有好吃的炸雞腿的地方.

"Tai Shr Fu" has sinced moved south down Jung Hua Road.  It's across from the McDonald's.  I haven't eaten there in ages, but it's probably the same as I remember. 
𡘙傅搬到中華路南段, 麥當勞對面.  我很久沒去那邊吃飯了, 大概跟以前差不多.

My favorite fried chicken place is probably Dong Jr Yuan, a tiny lunchbox place near where I live. 我最喜歡吃炸雞的餐廳應該是我家附近的東之園. 

3. "Hakka Cuisine", just up Gung Sheng Road from the Tong Guan Supermarket. Cheap and good!"客家小吃"在更生路往火車站的路上,那裡有兩家,一家靠近新生國小,一家靠近四維路.新生國小旁的板條很讚,另一家的魯肉飯好吃到不行,兩家都是好吃又便宜.

The "Hakka Cuisine" (Hakka Noodles) closer to Sse Wei Road is still in business.  I go there often.  The other place selling Hakka food in that area is, however, history. 比較靠近四維路的客家麵店還在,  我常在那裏吃飯.  那附近另外一家客家餐廳不在了.

4. The Vietnamese restaurant on Da Tong Road, across from where the movie theater used to be. I love their rice noodles.越南餐廳當然就要去大同路的,它在舊戲院前,他們的河粉真是讓我想到就流口水.

That Vietnamese restaurant is still there*, but their hours are pretty strange.  I was talking about the smaller one, closer to the ocean, not the newer, bigger one near the intersection of Jung Hua and Jong Jeng (the one that everyone knows about).  I stopped going there because I could never tell if they'd be open or not. 那家越南餐廳還在, 可是他們的營業時間不是很穩定.  我在原本文章討論的是比較小, 比較靠近海邊的那家, 不是比較新, 比較大, 靠近中華路,中正路口的那家 (大家都知道的那家).  我很久沒有去那裏因為不知道它有沒有開.


These days my favorite Vietnamese restaurant is here.  They make good pho. 現在我最喜歡的越南餐廳在這裡.  他們的牛肉河粉很好吃. 

5. Lin Family Dumplings, on the Coastal Highway and Da Tong Road. Their dumplings are without a doubt the best in the city."鄰家蒸餃"也是在大同路上,只是它靠近海岸線,我覺得他們的蒸餃是臺東市區最棒的.

I still go to this restaurant sometimes.  I wouldn't say their dumplings are "the best in the city," but if you're driving down the coast it's a convenient place to stop and grab lunch. 我有時候還是會去這家餐廳吃飯.  我不敢說他們的餃子是 "台東市最好的," 如果你是開車到海邊這一帶的話, 停在那裏吃午餐很方便.

And that's about all I can think of for now. Typing this has made me very hungry, and I am sorry that it is still so long until lunch!這些是我目前想得到的,寫到這裡已經讓我覺得很餓!!
