    Traditional Tainan food fit for Heads of State

    Traveler rating:4 2019-01

    The restaurant is rightly proud of the heritage of serving every President for many years. The crab sticky rice was very good and shrimp pork liver and date rolls were perfection. The sweet and sour seafood soup was also wonderful as were the cold prawns. Another highlight was the almond tofu sweet soup for dessert. Highly recommended.

    A Xia Restaurant (阿霞飯店) has been called the best “Local Flavored Tainan Restaurant”, established nearly 60 years ago. And it did live up to its reputation as we 6 visited here today. We made an early reservation (11AM) because of no table available at 12 noon or after! We reserved the followings: 1. 6-assorted plate (六品併盤, $32, delicious); 2. Steamed Mud Crab with Glutinous Rice (紅蟳米糕, $40, the most famous dish of A-Xia, truly mouthwatering); 3. Boiled Shrimps (鹽水活蝦, $27, fresh and “chewy”); 4. Stir-fried Fresh Eel (阿霞生炒膳魚, $27, yummy, yummy, yummy!); 5. Braised Shark-fin Thick Soup (傳統紅燒魚翅, $30, luscious); 6. Fried Pork Liver Roll (炸豬肝卷, $4.00 for each small dish, tasty, but I can’t appreciate much the “liver” savor); 7. Sweet Soup with Almond Tofu (阿霞經典甜湯, $2 for each bowl, tasteful) We enjoyed the lunch and the friendship very much!

    Recommended if you are in Tainan

    It is worth a visit to this restaurant to sample Tainan cuisine. It is surprisingly pleasant and clean. The service is excellent. The ladies tried their best to speak English with us with great big genuine smile. Highly recommend the steamed crab with sticky rice! Sea ell is also well known local dish in Tainan but I consider it a acquired taste. The dishes are on the sweet side but please do keep an open mind when try out the dishes.

    Typical Tainan food

    Traveler rating:4 2017-12

    The restuarant offers nice and typical Tainan food. Although it is a bit sweet for our taste. The dishes are really big, so order the small ones if you want to try more.

    Some very good food

    Traveler rating:4 2017-12

    I had a large meal with many options. The cabbage, chicken, crab sticky rice, pork feet, and sweet soup were all very good. The fruit was very sweet. The service was nice and accommodated a large party well. I understand that you should contact them ahead of time to order your menu.
