Shin Yeh Review
You can't come to Taipei without trying authentic Taiwanese food, which is a distinct variant of the more familiar Cantonese or Mandarin Chinese fare. Shin Yeh began as a small restaurant in a back alley with just a handful of tables in 1977, and in little more than 35 years it has grown into a chain of large restaurants with half a dozen branches across the city. This location isn't the original, but those in the know consider it the best of the bunch. The restaurant is dedicated to preserving the island's traditional cuisine, and signature dishes like braised pork belly and sweet potato porridge offer something deliciously different from the normal parade of sweet 'n' sour and wonton soups.
