Taichung City Mayor Lin Chia-lung used the slogan “South and north Taiwan eat to get full, while Taichung eats smart” to recommend everyone to head to Dongshih to try out the cuisine. Lin said, aside from eating smart, Taichung food is extordinarily varied, and the authentic cuisine of Dongshih has the purist Hakka flavor. For only NT$3,999, you can enjoy 12 Hakka dishes. Lin recommends that everyone register for the event as early as possible to have a good meal together and experience rich Hakka culture.
