Luuuuuuuuuuuunch time, but what should you eat? There is a great variety of food in Nantai St. that you just gotta love. But still, between all these wonderful choices you might not know where to go. Let me help you a little, here is a list of the restaurants I like best. I take into consideration the price, quality of food and cleanness. Let me know if you also agree with this list.
Before starting the list I want to make room for a special guest.
This is not really for lunch, but they are open from 6am to 2pm, and they do have lunch selections. But their breakfast is so good that it is perfectly fine to have it as brunch.
Between the copier store in the corner and Yo-yo.
Some people call it the “triangle store”, due to the food triangle at the back. They have good service, good food, they keep clean and they have English menu. [I know ’cause I translated it =). ]
I personally like the Chinese Omelette with ham and corn. But why not try the one with bacon and cheese? They also have the american breakfast and the delicious, never disappointing club sandwiches.
If you are looking for something sweet, they also have jam, chocolate and a luring coconut butter, you gotta try it.
If you are just looking for breakfast and Aina is close, try the store in the front. They are also good, and also have English menu.
Top 5 of great place for lunch at Nantai St.
5. Turkey Store.
It is very easy to miss, since there there is only a small turkey in their menu. But they sell these excellent Turkey sliced meat, with 4 different types of vegetable that you can chose. Very healthy, specially because you can ask them to give you more vegetables instead of rice.
4. Honey Pork
They sell exactly that. There is a nice piece of fried pork and they cover it with a honey sauce. You can chose 3 types of vegetables. And It only costs NTD 60. In their menu it is the first option.
They also have Honey Chicken, but I usually do not take that one, because it comes with bones.
3. Dumplings store
This is a chain of stores. They have the very famous dumplings and the absolutely delicious fried dumplings. Between the options they have Korean kimchi flavor, curry and corn. I like to take them with some noodles, either in soup or dried.
I am sure you will love this place.
2. Hot Plate
Actually there are many names international students refer to this restaurant. The cat’s place, the wooden restaurant or hot plate.
I fell in love with this place with their chicken gratin rice with mushroom sauce. But one of the favorite selections are the sizzling noodles with different sauces and chicken or meat.
One of the things I love about this place it the service, they have English menu and there is corn soup for you to take. They also bring you a nice pitcher of black tea, and overall the owner is very nice.
It is not really Italian, and the Eiffel tower in their wall, makes you doubt what kind of food they were aiming for. If you got there expecting Italian food, you will end up disappointing, but if what you want is a good meal, then it is your place.
The reason I did not rank it higher is because it is probably the most expensive of all. Notice that in all the other restaurants you will spend between NTD 60 – 90, but this Italian place is more than NTD 100.
They have great variety, and prices. Noodles, spaghetti, fried rice, instant noodle, gratin rice, clamp soup. All of these in a nice, clean restaurant. I will not speak anymore, as just talking about this place makes me hungry, you just gotta try it.

Restaurants a little farther Away
Fried Rice Behind S Building.
It is a little hidden and not many people know about it, but it has THE BEST fried rice around. Don’t miss it.
It is on the main street, sizzling hot plate with noodles and real meat. You’ll love it.
Well, it is absolutely a great place, I should rank it as the best, but it is way more fancier that anything else around, of course more expensive, but it is worthy.
It is on the way to the hot pot. It is not between my favorites, but I many of my friends like it, so why not give it a try.
The Hot Pot
If it is your first time in Asia, you can’t miss eating Hot Pot. They will bring the food raw and give you hot pot where you can cook it. This particular hot pot is perfect for first timers, because you can order just what you want to eat. You will love this place at the same time that you will be really full.
This awesome place opens at 4 pm and closes at 2 am
There are so many awesome places around here, and the list is not over, I will be soon posting about late night snacks! Don’t miss it.
I have to admit, my friends and I had a lot of fun for the sake of this post. So I hope you enjoy eating at Nantai St. as much as we do.
