{Taiwan: Taichung} Tokiya 陶板屋 @ Taiwan Blvd

For only NT$499+, you get a freaking 8-course meal at Tokiya (or Tao Ban Wu). The quality of food, ambience and service is really incomparable; and despite being a chain restaurant across Taiwan, I’m surprised to find the standards consistent after visiting two outlets at different cities.
