What do you think about Taiwanese cuisine ?
Some foreigners may think that Taiwanese cuisine is something like Din Tai Fung only. In Hong Kong, it is really difficult to try good Taiwanese cuisine.
I am not Taiwanese but I love Taiwan so much. I even went to Taichung to learn cooking from a chef in a famous resturant for 10 days in last year. Here are the dishes I made for our neighbourhood to share:
Taiwanese cuisine is ready now
(I made our HK style soup instead of Taiwanese one, because our HK style soup is really something!)

Salty Duck – cold dish

3-eggs Cold dish made of Free range eggs, salted eggs and Chinese thousand-yr eggs

Mushroom rouzao (pork)
Fish cooked in Taiwan indigenous spices – makao. It is Atayal people’s original spices and planted in high mountain

One of the neighbours, who has been Taiwan before and she commented that night: Phenomenal food.
Good wine with good food. Cheers!
We skipped Taiwanese dessert because we were so full.
