After sampling a variety of exotic cuisine around the world, Fu Lin Men Taiwanese Restaurant owner Mr. Ke still favors the rich, layered flavors of Taiwanese food. Thus, he established this luxurious establishment to not only express his passion for dining but to also introduce the beauty of his native cuisine to diners. With a decade of culinary experience, the chef uses fresh ingredients to create a wide range of entrees, with in-house specials including items like the Shredded Yam and Tomato Salad. --By Olly Lee, translated by Naomi Lai
A. The high ceiling and light decor were all designed by a famous interior designer. Wooden decorations add an elegance to the dining area and the large, X-shaped, steel-framed windows provide the perfect amount of illumination day or night.
B. The pots and pans used at Fu Lin Men Taiwanese Restaurant are creations of a famous iron pot master in Taichung county's Dajia township. Take a closer look and you can see the delicate oracle bone script (jiaguwen) decorating the exterior of these pots which, together with the pans, are able to reach high temperatures quickly and disperse heat evenly, helping bring out the full flavors of the ingredients cooked in them.
C. Fu Lin Men Duck (NT$680, whole duck) is a difficult-to-make, traditional Hakka dish that depends on the chef's skills for high-quality results. In addition to a special sauce, this dish must be prepared at the right temperature for cooking a combination of fresh duck, water and soy sauce. The Radish Cake (NT$80) is made with fresh shredded radish and rice that allows you to savor the sweetness of radish in every bite. The Shrimp Balls (NT$180 for four) are also packed with chewy, juicy shrimp paste, deep-fried into golden balls.
