Qin Yuan Chun

You won’t find many Taichung restaurants that have survived for more than 60 years, but Qin Yuan Chun is one of them. Currently managed by a fourth generation of owners and recognized with a Michelin Bib Gourmand ranking, this establishment dates back to 1949 and retains a nostalgic ambiance from bygone days, with bamboo steamers stacked by the door and the staff busy making dim sum delicacies. The most delicious and famous items here are Jiangsu-Zhejiang dishes and Shanghai-style dim sum, which in the past made this a must-visit dinner party destination for political and business elites.

Signature dishes include Ning-Style Fried Eel in Paste (NT$460), with fragrant fried eel and chives topped with hot oil. Other amazing selections include Soup Buns; Vegetarian Steamed Dumplings; and shepherd’s purse vegetables wrapped in a thin dough skin (NT$220, 8 pieces) that exude a special light fragrance when you eat them. There are also Red Bean Paste Buns; Vegetable and Meat Buns; Xiaolongbao; and Signature Rose Buns–big thick pastries filled with rose-flavored paste that are surprisingly delicious and sweet with a bit of pork oil.

This rich, wonderful variety of dining fare makes Qin Yuan Chu a favorite for both Taichung locals and many tourists as a classic, essential stop during any local dining exploration.
