Hello everyone! I’m @olivertomolife and I’ve studied abroad in Kaohsiung!
Did you know that there are actually more chicken rice restaurants in Kaohsiung than in Taipei?
The place I’m about to introduce is one that I remember going to for the first time since I came to Kaohsiung!
It’s very delicious, so I thought I’d introduce it here so that more people would know about it.
I have been on a working holiday in Kaohsiung for one year since February 2020. Currently, I am writing a blog based on that experience.
By reading this post, you’ll get to know where to get the best chicken rice in Kaohsiung!
What is Da Yuen Huan Chicken Rice?
This restaurant has been around for over 30 years and is one of the best in Kaohsiung.
The restaurant has been interviewed by many prestigious newspapers and magazines, and there are even pictures of famous people in the restaurant.
You can see how the family business keeps the traditional taste of Kaohsiung in their daily life.
Personally, I think it’s the best chicken rice restaurant in Taiwan, and I urge everyone to try it!
Exterior of the store
The restaurant is located right in front of the station exit, with tables lined up outside.
The seats in the back have shade, so if it’s hot, you might want to take a seat in the back.
There are no windows and no air conditioners, but there are fans.
It is very hot in the summer, but they also do takeaway, so take advantage of it!
Atmosphere of the store
When you go to the restaurant, you will see a overweight man carrying the food and an old lady or an old man quietly cooking.
The restaurant has a fast turnover, so even if it’s crowded, you’ll be seated soon.
In Taiwan, people often share a table, so this restaurant also uses tables for sharing.
I was surprised at first since this is a culture that is not common in Japan, but I soon got used to it.
I recommend the chicken rice and pork rice!
Both are available in small and large sizes, and the large size here is larger than most restaurants, so if you have a big appetite, this is the place for you!
Other items on the menu include bamboo shoots and soup.
How to Order and Points to Note
There is a menu sheet and pen at the back of the restaurant, so you can take it and fill it out at your seat.
Take it and fill it out at your seat. Then hand the menu to the waiter.
When your food arrives, pay in cash.
Taste the food
The food I ordered has arrived!
I ordered a large bowl of chicken rice.
The price was a whopping $45 Taiwan dollars!
So many cheap and tasty places to eat in Kaohsiung!
The rice is topped with shredded chicken.
when I tried it, the flavor of the chicken and rice was absolutely delicious.
This taste is a unique perfection that only that restaurant can offer.
I hope everyone can experience the excitement I felt the first time I ate it!
As a side note, after you finish eating, you can leave the restaurant.
- A delicious restaurant near the station
- If you come to Kaohsiung, you should go there at least once.
- You can pay later and use cash only.
