Taiwan Smoky Inn: Recommended German Food
Fancy a little bite to eat… Lusting for some good German food from a place like the Taiwan Smoky Inn? … Then
head out into the countryside of the North East Coast, to a little place called in Taiwan Smoky Inn near Sanchih, and you’ll find some of the best German food on the entire
It was a little tricky to find (I’ve borrowed the map to highlight its location). You can see the mark there. We
nearly missed the turning, as it is easier to find from the SanChih direction.
But we found it.
I’ve linked to the Google Map of the area for you.

Their website boasts: “ENJOY THE REAL BAVARIAN MEALS. OUR SPECIAL ARE SMOKED PIG KNUCKLE, SAUSAGES AND OTHER
TRADITIONALS. ENJOY TASTY BAVARIAN CHEESE AND NUREMBERG SAUSAGES, HOME MADE MUNICH SAUSAGE SALAD, ROAST PORK,
POTATO BALL AND BREADS.” (their caps, not mine!).
And this is what came: Large sausages of all kinds, Sauerkraut, Bavarian potatoes, horseradish, and pickles, …
We enjoyed the food, had some leftovers, and paid a reasonable NT$1600 for the three of us. Four would have cost
about NT$450. The neat thing was taxes and service charges were INCLUDED. I haven’t any idea why more restaurants

answering service. They’re too busy to answer phonecalls most of the time.
Needless to say, the local wildlife were attracted by the bugs buzzing round our lights, and they had their own
bug meal. I do have a video of this, too. If you can’t see clearly, it’s a gecko! A very active one, judging by the
speed with which it devoured its prey.
2012 Update: We recently tried to visit the original location of the restaurant only to find that it had closed
its in the mountains branch, and moved to Sanchih Downtown. Easier to get to by a mile or more literally!
