The Taiwanese food is a combination of Chinese ingredients and Japanese style of cooking. In general, the Asian food has mutual features in the way of cooking, but the Taiwanese food has special flavors and traditions. Their food depends mainly on the locally made ingredients such as rice, chicken, seafood, soy, and pork to reflect their traditional culture.
The Taiwanese seafood meals have their special tastes; especially the red frog crab, grouper, lobster, beige tuna, and swimming crab. Some Taiwanese restaurants present these kinds fresh because the fishing ships bring them from the ocean every day. Most of these restaurants offer light, simple, and natural seafood dishes to keep the distinctive and delicious flavor of the sea.
The Taiwanese noodle is made of the local rice on the shape of spaghetti to be cooked in different delicious ways. The Slack Season danzai noodles dish is made of delicious shrimp soup mixed with coriander, minced pork, and bean sprouts.
Another interesting way of cooking the noodles is to mix it with beef and traditional herbs and homemade chili-butter to give the dish a unique flavor. The flat rice noodles dish is one of the Hakka traditional dishes made of the glutinous rice.
The chicken is one of the principal dishes on the Taiwanese food lists. The three-Cup Chicken is a delicious traditional Taiwanese dish which has chicken pieces, three cups of flavorings, garlic, ginger, and salt with a basil addition at the end to result in a tough and chewy dish.
The chicken rice is another authentic dish that includes the turkey flesh. The Taiwanese are fascinated with the chicken snakes such as the moist and crispy crust hot-star large fried chicken that may be as big as your face. The tiger-striped chicken with yellow and black colors made from mustard and soy sauce will result in an amazing sweet and sour flavor.
