A selection of 69 Taiwanese restaurant with local specialties 2022 New Choice for Taiwan In-depth Tour
TAIPEI, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

With the lifting of epidemic prevention restrictions in various countries, 
global tourism has returned to the right track and retaliated. As the 
world-famous foodie island, before the epidemic, the territory of national 
delicacies such as Xiao Long Bao and bubble tea of Taiwan has expanded to the 
world. The bubble tea even generated some sort of "Bubble Tea Diplomacy", 
becoming the first choice for treating guests. Not only snacks, but also the 
delicacy of Taiwanese cuisine has gradually entered the international stage. 
According to the investigation by the Tourism Bureau of the Ministry of 
Transportation, food and its beautiful scenery are the two major reasons why 
tourists visit Taiwan. In the Taiwan Bib Gourmand recommended list announced by 
the 2022 Michelin Guide, 141 restaurants from North to South were found, many 
of which are specialty restaurants that understand the spirit of Taiwanese 

The globe is huge, its different languages, travelling distances, and skin 
colors invisibly create barriers between people, but when it comes to dining, 
it is a common language all over the world. People understand it without words. 
I often hear stories of international students meet new friends for a bowl of 
braised pork rice. The energy of gourmet diplomacy is boundless. The Ministry 
of Economic Affairs has also promoted the selection of "Taiwan Cuisine 
Restaurant" for three consecutive years, bringing Taiwanese cuisine with local 
characteristics to the international stage. This year, with "Taiwanese Cuisine 
with Local Specialties" as the main axis, using local ingredients from Taiwan 
to promote Taiwan's rich local products, 69 "2022 Taiwanese Restaurants with 
Local Specialties" were selected from all over Taiwan, and 10 representative 
restaurants were selected, so that the diners can follow the map and deeply 
experience the cultural essence of Taiwan cuisine of both meat dishes and 
seafood, letting their mouth a gourmet feast.

From land delicacies to seafood, Taiwanese cuisine can be said to be 
all-encompassing, including the "New Southeast Seafood Restaurant", which has 
been established for more than 40 years, the "Badasan" restaurant with 
aboriginal flavor, the "Meidz Seafood" restaurant that provides fresh seafood 
with specialty, the"Jindu Restaurant", which is famous for its Shaoxing 
Banquet, the "Tounan Daoxiang Village Nostalgic Cuisine" full of retro flavor, 
the"A-Yong jia Catering Service" that refined the table-setting, the"Chi 
Farmland Mama Healthy Food Restaurant" with Hakka pastoral characteristics, the 
"Donggang Seafood Restaurant" which uses Donggang's plump seafood ingredients, 
the "Ying Chun Ge Chinese Restaurant", a famous banquet restaurant in Kinmen, 
and the "China Spice" restaurant, which collects local seasonal seafood from 
Penghu, etc. The ingredients reproduce various emotional imprints in the life 
in Taiwan, highlighting the characteristics of "Taiwanese Cuisine with Local 
Specialties" and also embodying the authentic "good taste of Taiwan".

Each selected Taiwanese dish has been tempered by the chefs with a touch of 
humanity. With the local spirit contained in the ingredients, unique native and 
special delicacies are nurtured, and the aesthetic elements give Taiwanese 
cuisine a new look. As the saying goes: "To understand the local culture, you 
must start with the food." Whether you are a first-time foreign tourist or a 
native Taiwanese, you might as well start from the restaurants that are listed 
in the 2022 Taiwanese Restaurants with Local Specialties, taste Taiwan step by 
step, get a feeling about the beauty of local culture and ingredients in Taiwan 
by having a food tour.
