The food of Taiwan — often characterized by an eclectic mix of regional Chinese fare, plus dishes showing Japanese, Korean, American, European, and Southeast Asian influences — is becoming more prominent across New York. A decade ago there were only a few restaurants in the City that identified as Taiwanese; now there are dozens, and counting.
Eater is excited to welcome the teams from New York Taiwanese-American restaurants 886, Ho Foods, and Win Son on Wednesday June 5, 2019 for a celebration of the unparalleled food culture of Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei. The multi-course dinner will be inspired by traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes — prepared by chefs Trigg Brown, Richard Ho, and Eric Sze — each celebrating the local indigenous flavors and waves of culinary influences that come together into the “salty-sweet” trademark of modern Taiwanese cuisine.
We invite you to get a taste of the city for one special night. Dinner will be paired with cocktails from GN Chan, a former Angel’s Share bartender who has since founded a traveling cocktail pop-up called Double Chicken Please. The evening will be hosted by Eater’s travel editor Lesley Suter and Travel, Eat, Repeat host Iz Harris.
