When people visit the Sun Moon Lake area of Taiwan, or more specifically around the Puli area, this restuarant will most likely turn up on the search engine results. The food and ambience of this place have…(continue in English here)
以埔里來說，滿多人搜尋餐廳就會看到這間 “牛相觸” (其實馬路邊也滿多大招牌). 雖然大門口有隻大牛，不過他叫牛相觸的主要原因是因為他的老地名叫 “牛相觸” (地形關係). 這邊主要會有名主要除了他有些歷史外、他的農村古早味感覺，還有他的菜…
還滿好吃的 & 價格也還算ok (其實還滿平價的), 而且也有停車場 (雖然有點像穀倉.. lol)

Decor outside of the small private room that was the only open space for dining when we went.
幫我們點菜的看我們也只有兩人，所以也主動直接幫我們把一些分量大的改成比較小的 ( imagine 一大盤的東坡肉… 還好我們只有一人一塊剛剛好).
We had the smaller portions because there were only 2 of us and the dishes here are more for like a large table of guests sharing the different dishes.
Menu 上的其實還是可以有些隨性，因為部落格爬文時看到有人點梅汁過貓，不過 menu 上只看到和風過貓不太想點，就問他們有沒有梅汁的，結果說可以幫我改用梅汁的也 ok, 結果這道我們都滿喜歡，果然要放梅汁!

The restaurant is usually pretty busy during lunch hour (lots of tour groups as well). But we went there in the sort of in-between time so it was pretty quiet.
