Shi Lin, Robinsons Galleria

Taiwanese cuisine’s claim to fame isn’t just it’s wildly popular milk tea.

It is also marked by the creative use of spices and the inclusion of fresh local produce.

The country’s food is heavily influenced by Chinese cuisine because of Taiwan’s proximity to the mainland’s south provinces and especially due to the Koumintang retreat, as well as by Japanese cuisine due to the time of its occupation.

Being in a crowded island, the Taiwanese had to look for sources of protein other than their farmlands which led to the prominence of seafood in their dishes.

These culinary influences came into play when my family and I had dinner at Shi Lin in Robinsons Galleria.
