All You Can Eat Pizza Hut!

Just typing that post title brings back memories.

Sure, there are all you can eat Pizza Huts around the world (though many have gone bust), but few compare to the one I went to in Taipei, which is still as popular as ever.

Start off with some salad thanks

Taiwanese people have a specific taste when it comes to pizzas, and I like it.  They don’t limit themselves to the traditional tastes you see in Western countries.  For instance, my favourite of the lot was the Takoyaki Pizza.  Lovers of Japanese food will know what I’m talking about.  A close second would be the Korean Kimchi Pizza.  And the Beef with Black Pepper Sauce?  Also excellent.

Two of my faves - Takoyaki Pizza and Roasted Chicken

Of course, you still get the ‘normal’ pizzas, like the Hawaiians and the Supremes, but it’s these Asian fusion-style pizzas that kept me going back to the pizza bar.

And there’s not just the pizzas.  The salad bar is also surprisingly good, as well as the various soups, desserts and fruits.  I also really enjoyed the cold noodles with peanut sauce, the pastas and risottos (which come out in a finely tuned rotation), and the most popular non-pizza product they offer, the succulent, flavoursome, juicy roasted chicken.  These go as quickly as they arrive, and it’s not unusual to see people loitering around waiting for the next batch.

Taiwan's Pizza Huts have more Asian flavours such as these cold noodles

The drinks (soft drinks, ice drinks, teas, coffee and Milo) are also unlimited refill.

Ordinarily you wouldn’t expect to go to a Pizza Hut if just visiting Taipei, but in this case it is well worth it.  8 out of 10!
