Běidǒu 北斗 is a small town on the plains of Changhua 彰化 south of Yuánlín 員林. It is mainly known for being the origin of bawan (Taiwanese meatballs) but also appears to have some importance in history around the same time as nearby Lukang 鹿港. Nowadays it is also home to one of the biggest night markets in the area on Thursday nights.
