Pulau Redang is Taichung's first Malaysian vegetarian restaurant. The Malaysian chef here has come up with a variety of dishes inspired by traditional Malay cuisine such as Bak Ku Teh, coconut rice, and curry "fish heads". Made with various spices like turmeric, lemongrass and cloves, these flavory entrees attract both vegetarian and non-vegetarian diners alike. --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel Pu
