Dining at Formosa Pearl tea house and exquisite restaurant in the Taiwan countryside

Getting schooled on making proper bubble tea at the tea house that invented it in the 80s, Chun Shui Tang in Taichung

Here is my second feature on Taiwan (yes, there is another one coming) at Food Republic — my other Food Republic Taiwan articles here.

I dig into Taiwan’s diverse food and dining offerings, Taipei’s on-the-rise cocktail scene, forward-thinking malls, night markets and Taiwan’s island culture (a fusing of cultures, creating its own unique expression) represented in both the massive city of Taipei and the fascinating city of Taichung.
