Around Taiwan Itinerary

Hi guys,
I'll be taking a trip around Taiwan with my wife, parents, in-laws, brother's family + inlaws (11 people); I'm looking for advice for dining for all of us at different locations around the island. My wife and I have broad tastes and love good food in all settings (just as happy eating freshly made dishes from a stand as sitting in a fancy restaurant); my in-laws are caucasian but are willing to try new things; my parents are Taiwanese who live in Taiwan but don't go out to eat very often (in their 70s). My brother and his family love food as well. I suspect most of our meals will be sit down family style. We have rented a minibus and have a driver who will take us where we want to go.

D1 : Yilan to Hualien (staying in Hualien for the night)
Lunch: Seafood? Yilan spring onion cuisine?
Dinner: Seafood or something in Hualien? Night market in Hualien...

D2: Taroko Gorge (all day), stay in Tienshang at a Mingsu (cultural stay/B&B)
Lunch: options in Taroko Gorge? Aboriginal cuisine? Bring a lunch box?
Dinner: Near the Mingsu?

D3: Travel to Sunmoon Lake, enroute stop by Cingjing Farm and Yuling
Lunch: Cingjing Farm? Others enroute?
