Jin Dao Zi Sour Cabbage Hotpot is a restaurant serving sour cabbage and pork slices hotpot. My friends recommended this place to me and we visited here for dinner together. The hotpot is delicious, other dishes are Northeast Chinese cuisine which are rarely found in Taipei.
The restaurant is on Jilin Road, the station is about five minutes walk away from Xingtian Temple MRT station. They have lots of customers even at weekdays, luckily my friends ordered seats before our visit on Sunday.
