I come here everytime I return to JiuFen and I am never disappointed. This place is a bit difficult to find, but you just need to ask around for directions. The dessert is fantastic. Have your dessert at the observatory seating area for a good view of JiuFen, provided that the fog doesn't come! Recommend you to order two types - the hot and cold/iced one - to try!

The taro balls are wonderful. They are tasty with an excellent texture and would be worth a try regardless of the location. However, the view of the mountains, ocean, and harbour make this stop an absolute must! Try to get a seat by the window and enjoy the delicious taro balls.

The seating is hidden down a hall to the back of the place. If you are in a group, try to get some people to place the order and others to get a seat, as it can get crowded.

First there is the amazing view at the dining area. The taro was full of flavour (unlike the others we tasted which probably mixed in other ingredients). The consistency was prefect, just enough chew/bite (not too hard nor too soft) and we could taste how freshly made they were!

Had the mixed soup with taro balls iced version. The taro balls are ok but nothing fantastic. The soup was a bit bland not sure is it because I had the iced version. Prefer version at other places where they serve with grass jelly, grass jelly ice, taro balls and lots of other sides like red bean, tapioca balls etc. View is great though.

There are a number of shops selling Taro balls and this is one of the best. A must try when in Jiufen.
