No.19, E. Alishan, Alishan Township, Chiayi County 605, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Most tourists who visit Alishan choose to take a pleasant stroll in the forest recreation area. However, unfortunately, all the restaurants situated within the park are either packed with noisy tourist groups or are expensive and sell low quality food. Shanbin Restaurant is the only exception. Located next to the highest convenience store in the whole of Taiwan, hot pot is its signature dish. Shanbin Restaurant’s fragrant soup, accompanied with a variety of seafood and vegetables, is the best choice for warming up in the cold alpine environment. Best of all, the flavors on offer are abundant. If you are after fried green vegetables, Mapo Tofu (麻婆豆腐) or the specialty mountain boar that is unique to this area, then you have also come to the right place. The store decorations show Taiwan’s farming life, rural raincoats and bamboo hats hanging on the walls. With all the tables full of customers before you, a visit to Shanbin Restaurant is like appreciating the ingenuity of its owner, who has made this place a must-stop for locals and tourists alike.
