"Lunch Box," as it’s affectionately known, is one of Taiwan’s best cheap eats. For approximately US$2.50, you can munch on your choice of chicken or pork served with an intricately decorated box of rice, sweet sausage, boiled egg, and sprouts. Opt to eat in the vintage train car or head to the second-floor museum to learn more about this historic restaurant. Afterwards, shop for sweet treats to take home for friends. Lunch Box is delicious, affordable, and educational—an ideal stop after biking the rice paddies around Chishang.
