Opened in 1981, the 30-year-old Sin-Lin Seafood Restaurant is one of Taichung's oldest restaurants. However, while most Taichung folks seem to think of it as a popular banqueting venue, it is actually an ideal eatery for enjoying traditional, authentic Taiwanese cuisine and a nostalgic local atmosphere.
The restaurant's glass aquarium displays live seafood that can be cooked in any number of ways, such as steaming, frying and grilling. However, if you're not confident about making the right choice for your orders, feel free to ask the staff and professional chefs, who frequently recommend the seasonal seafood specialties.
Following are the most popular dishes, recommended by Sin-Lin's second-generation owner, Ms. Kan Chu-ying.
