4 Best Restaurants in Nantou

Where and What to Eat in Nantou

Restaurants in Nantou often specialise in the unique local flavours of this mountainous region of central Taiwan. The high altitude and fresh air help to create excellent fruits, wines and teas, while the mix of aboriginal and immigrant cultures creates quite a diverse dining scene. You’ll also find plenty of western and international options to choose from.

Baiyi cuisine is one of the stars of the area. It arrived with refugees from Myanmar in the 1960s. A typical Baiyi dish is made by stuffing spices into the belly of a fish, usually a carp, and then deep frying it to a golden crisp texture.
