I ate at this restaurant twice during a recent visit to Taiwan's east coast and couldn't believe how they've managed to conjure up South African soul food that tastes just as good (if not better!) than it does at home. I had a boerewors roll on my first visit (South Africa's answer to the hot dog) and it was utterly delicious (apparently the sausage is handmade and they get it stuffed at a local butcher's). My second meal there was the red wine stew, which was also fantastic - it came with sticky rice which, though non-traditional, was excellent. You get a free cup of rooibos tea with every meal, and there's a great selection of hearty SA wines and Stella beer on tap. What's more, the place has a surf-shop in the back (that also offers lessons in both surfing and stand-up paddling), funky coloured walls, a laidback vibe (complete with great music ranging from Ama Diab to SA tunes), stunning original art on the walls and super-friendly staff who made me, and everyone else, feel really at home. I didn't stay there, but there's a brand new backpackers upstairs as well, so if you need a place to stay that has a surf-shack feel, this ticks all the boxes.
