In the not -too-distant past "Taiwanese food" was a misnomer. What people today call Taiwanese food was street food. What's more, it was common to disguise the fact that one was Taiwanese and spoke "ben di hua;" that is "local speech." Rich people ate rice; the Taiwanese ate sweet potatoes. In fact "sweet potato" was a byword for Taiwanese people. In the old days, you could buy roast potatoes on the street. This restaurant serves special food, that will come as a revelation to non-Taiwanese. It has taken street food and turned it into a unique cuisine; Shin Yeh has certainly deserved its Michelin honor.
