I am trying to find the recipe for a popular Taiwanese dish served in Southern Taiwan in the night markets. It is called 'turkey rice'. Can you help? Please email me.

My wife is from Chai-yi, Taiwan and I know the dish you speak of it is called Chai-yi Chicken Rice. However chicken is not used but turkey. My wife makes it on a regular basis and it is great. I don't know exactly how to make it but I know some parts. First you boil a turkey breast. After it is done it is cooled off and shredded. The sauce is a mixture of Soy sauce, fried shallot, and I am not sure what else. The shredded turkey is put over a bed of white rice and the sauce is drizzled over the turkey. It is very simple dish, but very delicious. When we are back in Chai-yi we always stop at that most famous place that makes the dish. I am going to try to have my wife write down the sauce recipe.

I also have been looking for the turkey rice recipe. Do you have the entire recipe?


Popular fruit - sold on street

maybe somebody can help me... a few years ago I spent 6 months in Taiwan and daily I bought fruit while walking to the office, red, form like a pear and consistency close to a Nashi pear but sweeter and tasted even better. Does anybody know the name of this fruit?

Thank you,


The fruit you mention is wax apple, in Taiwan called 蓮霧, pronounced "lien wu".

I am trying to locate taiwanese streets where there are famous "little eats" or xiao chi. Do you have any idea where they are? Thanks.


I've been trying to find out how to make wah guay or wahgui since I was on a trip to Kaohsiung in '98. I can't find any information on it. If you could help, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!


Awesome site! I'm a second-generation Taiwanese american who loves food and is passionate about all things Taiwan. Keep up the great work!

    This blog stands against the fictitious law passed in March 2005 by the P.R.C. proposing that unification is Taiwan's legal and moral duty, even to the point of the P.R.C. using force to uphold that fiction. TaiwanTiger ascribes to the statement of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council that:

    "The Republic of China is an independent and sovereign nation and its sovereignty rests in the hands of the twenty-three million Taiwanese people. Only the twenty-three million Taiwanese people have the right to make the final decision on any change to the nation's status and future."

Taiwanese Food

    So, this seems kind of crazy, but hey we all love to eat, right? In Taiwan, it's considered a hobby. When you go on a trip, you need to stop at such and such town for their great ______. Noodles, shrimp rolls, chicken thighs, soup, whatever. Everyplace seems famous for some addition to the Taiwanese culinary tradition. So here I am attempting to document some of the traditions of eating, the places to go, and the food itself. This will be a difficult and slow moving project, because I feel really strange photographing food in the presence of other diners, especially when I have to stand on a chair to get it all in.
