Taiwan Food in Shanghai

Taiwan Cuisine is originated from Fujian Cuisine. It is because that many of the first Taiwanese are immigrants from Fujian, a coastal province in southeast China and face Taiwan Island to its southeast. The Taiwanese have changed and improved traditional Fujian Cuisine to form their own way of cooking. Japanese Cuisine, Hong Kong Cuisine and the eight cuisines of the mainland China have also influenced the forming of that Cuisine. Now, Taiwan Cuisine has already become independent and distinctive.

Shanghai attracts many Taiwanese merchants due to its fast economic development. More and more Taiwanese choose to visit Shanghai or settle in this city. Taiwan Cuisine consequently becomes popular. Taiwan is surrounded by the sea and abundant in marine products, so seafood is sure to lead the fashion of the Cuisine. In the Taiwan Cuisine restaurants in Shanghai, you can have the fresh and delicious fish, crabs and shrimps, or you can enjoy the famous Taiwan snacks.
