Most Taiwanese would associate the aboriginal tribes here with millet wine (quite common for the tribes on the Taiwan island). But the aboriginal tribe on the Orchid Island does not have that in their history and culture. I think we've visited all of the must-go restaurants on the island (at least once for...

大多數的人講到原住民就會想到小米酒, 但蘭嶼島上的達悟族人比較不同, 這邊主要還是以捕漁和種地瓜芋頭類的為主. 這次蘭嶼島上知名的餐廳我們都至少掃過一遍了吧, 有娃娃, 藍海屋, 無餓不坐, 美亞美, 人魚和貓.. 等. 上圖的這個是...
... for each. Some of them we visited more often because there just weren't that many good options out there.
哇哇 Wa Wa
這是我們到蘭嶼的第一間餐廳, 聽說算是滿新的. 這個吧台感覺就很有蘭嶼.
This is the first restaurant that we went to on the island. The bar area have hand-drawn flying fish + the traditional fishing boat.
The bar and the lamp made of sea shells.
Never knew the flying fish is this size. It's actually quite big. This is a must try when one visits the Orchid Island.
剛剛看的吧台其實上面都是漂流木. 很有地方特色, 就地取材. 照片的那隻像魚的好像是真的魚...曬乾的那種.
The bar is decorated with tree branches and logs collected from the shore. I think the fish you see here is real.. the dried up kind..

Hongtou Village, Orchid Island
無無餓不坐 The Epicurean Cafe
First dinner on Orchid Island at the Epicurean Cafe
View from outside of the restaurant.
餐廳還有 serve 調酒喔！
This restaurant serves cocktail and mixed drinks! (probably can't any other ones on the island with this)
This is kinda like a pet in the restaurant. It's drinking Taiwan beer if you haven't noticed.
The restaurant has lots of little cute things and designed deco.
More of the interior deco.
這是山豬肉的風味餐, 裡面還有地方的特色菜, 例如情人的眼淚(水木耳).
This is a set with wild boar meat and a kind of seaweed (the black jelly thing) nicknamed the Lover's Tears or God's Tears.
Table in the shape of the island and one of the pets of the restaurant.
Pet of the restaurant?!

Yuren Village, Orchid Island
美亞美早餐店 Meiyami Breakfast
A house beside the restaurant. The stairs to the second floor seems pretty steep!
早餐很有名的法式土司 (menu 上好像是較培根蛋捲之類的), 而且有甜的和鹹的. 照片前面的這個是甜的, 後面的是鹹的.
The breakfast place is famous for its French toast (they called it the egg roll with bacon or something like that on the menu). It can be sweet or salty (can choose).
Other options for breakfast.
This is another one you can try. Crispy outside and some ham and cucumber with special sauce inside.

A: 蘭嶼鄉冬青村 68 號 (但老闆說他們要搬到比較靠近公路那邊去了)
Dongqing Village, Orchid Island (they said they'd be moving closer to the coastal highway soon)
人魚和貓 Cats and Fishman
This restaurant in the Dongqing village is pretty good as well.
The owner studied industrial design. A lot of the interior deco, again, were done by hand.
我覺得這個杯子很特別, 上面還有調酒的 recipe! 這餐廳的吃的和飲料都很不錯. 我們在第二天的中餐和晚餐就在這啦.
I think this glass is pretty interesting. There's the recipe for mixing popular cocktails on it. In terms of food and drinks (non-alcoholic), I think this place is pretty good. We went there twice on 1 day: lunch + dinner.
這個餐廳裡的標示也很有趣: 請勿餵食貓咪, 狗狗 和 小孩 (還貼照片呢！)
This thing written on the window says: Do not feed the cats, dogs and the kid (photo attached).
不能餵食的小朋友就在這吧. 她真的很可愛, 也不怕陌生人, 可以和一般人打成一片.
The kid is here. She's pretty cute and mixes well with strangers.
小朋友在我們吃中餐時跑來跟我們玩, 還把三輪車和鞋子一撇下, 到處爬來爬去.後來老闆娘還來跟小朋友說, 再不把違規停車的三輪車移開就要開罰單囉！(笑)
The girl just parked her little 3-wheeler beside our table, left her shoes here and climbed up and down on chairs and tables, etc.
這間店後來看介紹書提到是個愛情故事, 老闆是東清人, 在台灣認識了老闆娘, 後來老闆娘放棄台灣的一切, 嫁到了東清, 也開始 run 這家餐廳.
Read on the book later that the restaurant has a love story attached. The restaurant belongs to a couple who met in Taiwan. The man was from the Dongqing village. He managed to convince his wife to leave her life in Taiwan behind to move back to the island with him.

Dongqing Village, Orchid Island.
藍海屋 (Blue Ocean Cafe)
This is a small wood cabin we saw when we passed by it on the coastal highway. It feels pretty refreshing and cozy.
但 food & drinks 我是覺得還 ok only. 這間比較讓人哇的應該是它的冰沙.
But I think the food and drinks here are okay only. The more impressive thing would be their fruity slush.
This is the peach slush.
我們來這一次是晚餐後, 一次算是午餐, 兩次都坐在外面的位子, 感覺還滿舒服的, 而且還可看海景和下面海灘的晒飛魚.
We were here twice - once after dinner and once for lunch. The seats in the patio are actually quite comfortable. You could also have a nice view of the coast and the drying fish display on the beach.
