--By Josie Wu Translated by Cara Steenstra

Taiwanese cuisine is nostalgic and reminds folks of what mum used to cook. Shin Yeh Taiwanese Cuisine is stepping into their 30th year next year. From a small establishment with only eleven tables, they have developed into a well-known chain where Taiwanese come in search of nostalgic flavors and foreign visitors come to experience authentic Taiwanese cuisine.
The original Shin Yeh branch was situated on ShuangCheng Street near the Combat Zone, where the US military personnel would congregate, and which gives the area a bit of a foreign atmosphere. Apart from American and European customers, many Japanese visitors also come regularly. The ZhongXiao Branch is young and trendy, compared to the slightly more nostalgic original branch. It doesn't matter whether or not you know what to order from the menu, do what the regulars do and ask the experienced service staff about what is fresh and seasonal and you might even get a dish of the chef's personal specials. Almost every dish on the menu is worth recommending, including the Three Cups Squid, Beef with Chives (NT$385), Sweet and Sour Shrimps (NT$395), Deep Fried Codfish (NT$480), Fried Egg with Pickled Vegetables (NT$160) and Handmade Buns known as "Tiger Bites Pig" (NT$70) that resemble a Taiwanese-style hamburger are all very popular dishes. Not to be missed is the Almond Pudding (NT$50) that Shin Yeh is famous for. Made from almonds and peanuts, this smooth, chewy pudding is only available in limited numbers each day. After each meal, diners are presented with a complimentary dish of Taiwanese-style Mochi, and if you are not in a rush, hot tea will be presented too -- so you can sit back and enjoy your time with friends and family.
