Fujiyama’s Pig Review
I was just walking around the neighborhood and stumbled upon Fujiyama’s Pig. From the outside, it looked very hip and clean. Initially, I thought it was more of a fancy restaurant and was expecting the prices to be at least double. When I saw the prices, I was pleasantly surprised.
The menu has a lot of options and they have a little pig next to items that have pork. Since this place was called “Fujiyama’s Pig,” I had to get something with pork in it.
6/5 Get the hand made pork chop. That added to any of the dishes at Fujiyama’s Pig just increases it’s score!
The hand made pork chops are made from pork that isn’t frozen! It’s from farm to table in 24 hours! The insane part is that they charge so little for this delicious pork!
A lot of their dishes could be slightly improved, but the absolute star item at this restaurant is their pork!
Food: Fujiyama’s Pig
4/5 Special Sandwich: Pork, Cheese & Potato NT$85
Each of the special sandwiches comes egg, vegetables and tomato. The sandwiches come uncut (as stated on the first page of the menu) and the bread is not toasted. Overall, it’s a pretty good sandwich. The highlight of the dish was definitely the pork. It was fresh ground pork made into a patty and seasoned generously. Each bite was full of flavor and juicy.
The only reason I didn’t give it a 5/5 was because of the sandwich structure. It was a big sandwich and everything was really piled up in the center. Making each bite around the edges of the sandwich empty. They could make REALLY good pork burgers here if they just changed it from breads to buns, which would also solve the structure issue.
4/5 Special Pork Omelette (danbing)
4/5 Handmade Porkchop Egg Omelette
Review is for both: Once again, the pork is super good. Tender, fresh, salted a little and overall delicious! The rest of the omelette was standard to let this pork shine
4/5 Handmade Pork Chop Curry
The pork again is 5/5 but the curry itself is just 3/5. The curry is the type of soupy curry that you can find in a lot of places around Taipei. It’s not my preference because the flavor is pretty light. I love thick curry that has a lot of flavor.
Value: Fujiyama’s Pig
Almost all the dishes at Fujiyama’s Pig are less than NT$100! That’s an insane deal for a nice restaurant with super high-quality food.

Overall Impression of Fujiyama’s Pig
When I first found out about this restaurant I showed up 3 times in 1 week for breakfast. The quality of the food is so good and they charge prices comparable to a local-style breakfast restaurant where most items are less than NT$100.
Fujiyama’s Pig Location
Fujiyama’s Pig is a small restaurant located right across from Lio Hotel. I put Lio Hotel in the map because this restaurant doesn’t even exit on Google Maps yet!
