Our hike through Taroko was amazing... nothing like getting to a beautiful waterfall at the end of the trail only to discover that one can walk another .2km through caves to get to the other side of the waterfall. We stood in awe of the panel of water that lay before us. But needless to say, after all this exercise and water, we looked like drowned rats and were hungry rats at that. Our B&B owner recommended Lan Lan right outside the entrance of the park. Once again, it's a place with no menu. They tell you what they have (ingredients) and you tell them how you want it. I'm getting spoiled by this kind of restaurant interaction!
Cuttlefish with snow peas. The cuttlefish was cooked just tender and the snow peas were crisp.
Sauteed wild boar with home made chili sauce - what I can say.... wild boar was pretty tasty and not too gamey in this prep.
Sauteed san su - God, I miss this vegetable!
Clam soup - good but not as good as the oens we had in Chiayi.
We knew the food was going to be good as the stove in the kitchen sounded like a jet engine everytime it came on. With that kind of wok power, how can one go wrong?
Total came to NT960 (~$32)
