Mrs Lee Xiu Ying loves to tell of her story: in 1977, her first restaurant allowed for no more than 10 tables and simple food. Her recipes inspired by local culinary traditions met with growing success, turning Shin Yeh, a confidential place yet popular among locals, into an institution. You are likely to meet many families celebrating as well as hurried businessmen.
On the menu, it will be hard to make your pick among the varied popular dishes, prepared in a rigorous and skilful manner, emphasizing their gastronomic quality. Get ready for all market specialities like omelettes, as well as fried crab and tofu, either sweet or savoury. Driven by this success, Shin Yeh spread all over Taipei. For your first visit, favour the original restaurant in the Zhongshan district: the place is suffused with the history of this extraordinary woman, still going strong at nearly 70!
