[Reporter Cai Shuyuan / Taichung Report] Taichung Steakhouse is back!

Taichung Steakhouse, an old Taichung brand with a history of 50 years, was cut off from water and electricity during the epidemic last year due to the lease agreement between the landlord and Taiwan Sugar. The Steakhouse reopened on Jungong Road, Beitun in the background after the epidemic was unblocked. However, the brand has changed hands. The new team bought trademarks and recipes such as sauces. After the opening, it still focuses on all-you-can-eat meals, which moved many Taichung people "Taichung people's childhood memories have come back", but the signature Yuan Taizu Mongolian barbecue, and Taichung people The oyster omelette, milkfish, and oyster omelette in the memory were not provided, which made netizens call it a pity.

The reopening of the Taichung Steakhouse has been hotly discussed on the Internet. The new owner, Gu Zhenpu, said that he is a kid in Taichung who grew up eating the Taichung Steakhouse. By chance, he met the founder of the Taichung Steakhouse, the 86-year-old "Zeng Ma" Zeng Huizhi. I bought the brand trademark and formula, hoping to continue the taste of my childhood.

The newly opened Taichung Steakhouse focuses on the staple food of steak. There are all-you-can-eat steaks such as beef, pork, and chicken, plus more than 40 buffet dishes such as salads, cooked food, and pizza. Sugar pudding and ice cream are must-have desserts in western restaurants. Many customers order 5 or 6 meals at a time, and they are satisfied.

However, many old gourmets and netizens questioned why the Mongolian barbecue, as well as oyster omelette, milkfish, and oyster omelette in their memories were all gone. Taizu Mongolian Barbecue was originally two separate brands. The Dongshan store is limited in space, and currently only serves all-you-can-eat and Buffet. In the future, Mongolian Barbecue will be independent and operate in a different way.

The newly opened Taichung Steakhouse still focuses on all-you-can-eat steak, hot food, and dessert buffet.
