The Adventure Of Eating Our Way Around Taiwan


Hot, Healthy And Spicy BBQ  Eel

Taiwan Food Favorites

Eel is often billed as the healthy meat of tomorrow in both Taiwan and Japan. This dish has an abundance of vitamins A and E, as well as protein, calcium, and unsaturated fat. This is one of the more hearty soups and stews, and the local people love it. It is perhaps recommended to visitors more than most other dishes found on a menu.

Hizen Ya is a very popular restaurant and it is best known for its Japanese Eel. Seating is rather tight, so it is not the place to come late unless you want to wait in line. Eel is one of the many highlights on the menu, it is always freshly made and runs out of most of the eel dishes each day. You will find the restaurant in the Zhongshan Dist.
