It’s always been a dream of mine to visit Taiwan. What first got me interested in visiting and learning more about the culture is the food and its emphasis on light, natural flavors.
I absolutely love Taiwan’s rice noodles, unique teas and the melting pot of culinary styles that come together to create a delicious flavor of its own. So, when I found out that the Taiwan Tourism Board was hosting a five-day festival in Flushing, New York celebrating delectable Taiwanese dishes made by Taiwan’s top chefs, I knew I had to have a bite.
Savoring Taiwan’s Cuisine
The Savoring Taiwan’s Cuisine food festival is taking place October 16 – 20 at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel. Mark your calendars and come hungry. Both gourmet dishes and a fusion of local snack options from a variety of influences will be available. Guests will enjoy a choice of three sets consisting of different Taiwanese street food; all with “Chou’s Shrimp Rolls” as the main dish. Chou’s Shrimp Rolls were created by Chef Chou in 1965 in the city of Tainan, the food capital of Taiwan. Chef Chou’s shrimp rolls are iconic throughout Taiwan and the world.
While Taiwanese cuisine often features high quality fish and meats, there are also many vegetarian options. There’s something for everyone. Though I hope to visit Taiwan someday, it’s good to know that I can get an authentic taste of Taiwan right here in New York. Find out more about experiencing the flavors of Taiwan for yourself!
