This is probably one of my favorite tea places in Taiwan,
You'll understand why after looking at some of the pictures.
I tried my best to take this picture in the rain,
You can probably tell that this dining/tea place is gonna be huge by looking at the entrace!
I think being spacious and unique are two of the main characters for Taichung's tea places,
And this is especially the case for 伍角船板,
2 floors plus 1 underground area-
The underground area also including a big pound-
They also display some sculptures around the entrance-
Space-wise, this place is awesome, but how about food?
I think it's pretty good for a tea place,
Well, at least I considered 伍角 as a tea joint instead of as a restaurant.
They have a set menu which you can pick among various main dishes for $8 or $12 U.S. Dollars,
You also get a drink, small dessert, stewed chicken soup, and a vegetable dish with the set you picked,
Quite a bargain yeah?
I picked German pork knuckle as my main dish-
My friend picked Shaoxing drunk chicken (boneless, what a plus!), which was prepared with several Chinese herbs and Shaoxing wine-
Stewed chicken soup-
I love it, they used lots of garlic cloves while making the soup,
The aroma was unbelievable, and the chicken meat was very tender.
Flavorful yet not too heavy,
The bottom one contains wood ear, glass noodles, celery, and other ingredients,
They used sha cha sauce (Chinese barbecue cause) with vinegar I think, I really enjoy it.
The other vegetable dish...I don't have much memory about it...cz my friend ate it all...
Dessert, friend mochi coated with peanut powder-
I'm not a big fan of chewy dessert so no comment about it.
伍角 really is an awesome place, highly recommended if you ever come visit Taichung,
This city has so many stylish tea places,
You get to see amazing structural design and enjoy your meals at the same time,
Just by how much? Less than $10!! Definitely worth it!
