FOOD AROUND NCCU CAMPUS
[ For an even better experience, be sure to utilize apps such as Foursquare and Yelp, which can suggest many other restaurants. ]
Restaurants and bars outside campus (mainly on Zhi Nan Road, Section 2) serve Asian food. There are also some restaurants that offer western food, which basically consists of pasta, steak with side dishes and salad.
One thing to have in mind is that dinner time in Taiwan is usually around 17:00 to 19:00, which means that most restaurants do not remain open until very late at night. There are also two 7/11 and one Hi-Life convenience stores which can prove quite handy when one needs a bite after restaurants have closed.
