Taipei has long been known for it’s variety and quality of authentic Chinese food from all provinces of mainland China, some of the best value Japanese food you can find anywhere, and of course local food which often takes the form of small eats or street food. Over the past several years the range of high quality cuisines from other cultures and countries has improved dramatically. A decade ago there wasn’t a whole lot of choice if you wanted authentic, quality world food that wasn’t Chinese or Japanese. Sure there were restaurants featuring other country’s dishes but not always the most authentic or the tastiest. Now however that’s all different, and you can really eat your way around the world in Taipei without breaking the bank. Last year I began a personal project featuring some of these foods and the chefs that create them. Like a lot of ongoing personal work it got pushed to the backburner during busy periods, and I realized that although I’ve posted this in galleries on my website I’ve never introduced the series here on the blog. Covered here are foods and chefs featuring Moroccan – Tajin, Mexican – Mayan Xinyi, and Indian – Mayur Indian Kitchen.
