YOUR RATING & REVIEW | VIEW VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS
you are looking for a reasonably priced all-you-can-eat meal,
look no further than Dong Tang Barbecue, a pleasant restaurant
where, for NT$299, you can try everything from hot pot to
barbecue. It not only satisfies customers' taste buds, but
also keeps the big eaters happy with huge quantities of food.
So popular is this combination that, unless you make a reservation,
you could end up watching others enjoying the great food during
their very busy meal hours.
The decor is predominantly Japanese-style, with little paper
lanterns and red walls giving off a cozy home-style Japanese
dining atmosphere. There is a salad bar by the entrance and
you also have a choice of hot pot, barbecue, or even both,
for those who can't make up their minds.
The hot pot soup base comes in Japanese, kimchi and spicy
styles. Of these, the spicy is the most popular, with a base
of duck's blood, tofu and sausages. If you enjoy spicy food,
try throwing in some "you tiao" bread sticks, wait
till it soaks up all the juices, then enjoy the awesome flavors.
For all you gluttons out there, you can try the deluxe pot
with all of the three soup bases, which pleases both fans
of spicy and non-spicy food.
For the restaurant's stone barbecue, the cheese oysters are
on the top of the popularity list. Big, fresh oysters are
covered with cheese, then barbequed, making every bite utterly
enjoyable. They are also famous for their variety of barbecue
items, such as the world-famous Kobe beef, beef flank, Kyoto
beef, chewy pig's tongue and pig's cheek. Other excellent
barbeque items include shellfish, cold mountain deer meat,
turkey meat, Japanese sweet potato and sweet rice cakes.
Attention should also be paid to the two unique Japanese dipping
sauces, the spicy miso and the original miso flavor. These
are for the directly barbequed meat slices and the lettuce-wrapped
meat slices, respectively. The restaurant aims to provide
daily and seasonal freshness to customers, so everyone can
enjoy delicious fresh food with peace of mind.
From Mondays till Fridays, the lunchtime barbeque is NT$269;
hot pot and barbecue combos are NT$299. Late-night barbeque
is NT$269; the hot pot and barbeque combo is NT$299. Monday
to Friday dinner times and on holidays, the barbecue is NT$319
and the hotpot and barbecue combo is NT$369. Come with 10
or more friends and you can get a five-percent discount. With
such great deals, you will not have to worry about finding
a great place to dine anymore!
