If you happen to find yourself in downtown Hualien around dinnertime you don't want to miss this place! Especially not if you appreciate a good pulled pork sandwich with fries and find a fridge full of imported US crafted beer interesting. The interior, music and athmosphere of this place is great and very genuine. Very recommended!

The food is incredible. There is no other restaurant in Hualien, possibly Taiwan, like it. The waiting staff are friendly and helpful. The proprietors Jason and Ben strive to make all their guests feel welcome in an enjoyable and convivial atmosphere. Definitely worth the experience.

Very nice ribs with tasty sauce! I've tried some ribs from a famous restaurant in Guam about August, they are really far from the quality here at Saltlick.
