When you’re near the docks in Magong City, you’ll find plenty of restaurants displaying tanks of fresh local seafood. It’s a fun experience to shop and discover what each place can prepare. That is of course, if you spoke Chinese. Thankfully, the group I was with had no problem and knew specific places to go to. I won’t be able to list them here, but I can give you a sample of the different foods we had. All were indeed fresh and cooked to order and much less expensive than the places on mainland Taiwan.
We ate in this area three times and I could have done more. This was the local seafood eating experience I wanted.
The area wasn’t too busy either. I’d estimate places were at 75% capacity. That meant no wait. Well, just the wait for your food. Not bad to be in a place where supply was more then demand. Keep Penghu at these levels please!
Verdict: If you’re an adventurous seafood lover, give this area a try.
