Makes Cooking Like Art

You can enjoy a fine banqueting style meal just in Tianmu without even going to Beitou! Jin Peng Lai Traditional Taiwanese Cuisine Restaurant located in Tianmu has already run its business for about 30 years. And now, the restaurant has passed down to the third generation to Bo-Xuan Chen, which was established by his grandfather, Liang-Qi Chen, and originally calleda�?Peng Lai Si Tanga�? .

After inheriting the restaurant, Bo Xuan not only made full use of his abilities on managing and marketing from his previous work experience in an airline company but also renovated the old style interior design into a restaurant with an elegant sense of atmosphere. As a foodie, he also dedicates himself to study cooking in order to have a thorough understanding of it.

According to Bo Xuana��s cooking experience, he says every dish is art that you cannot cook it absentmindedly. You must cook it with enthusiasm and make it with soul. Most importantly, flavor of the dish is way more significant than its superficial decorations. In his kitchen, you can see various traditional seasonings, which are just like his color palette for him to create an exact and unique taste of every dish itself. However, some cooks coming for applying the job here were literally scared off because of this. They couldna��t adapt to the traditional cooking style that you have to make things from scratch and season every dish pinch by pinch. But due to this insistence, flavor of all dishes are ensured at their perfect taste and quality.

In the past, only those politicians and celebrities can have the chance to wine and dine their guests with a banquet in Beitou, a marvelous place surrounded by steamy hot springs. Nowadays, people can enjoy these delicacies in their everyday life. Some regular customers have even supported this restaurant from their first generation to third generation. To all regular customers of a�?Jin Peng Laia�?, its a�?Fuo Tiao Qianga�?, a traditional fancy dish for special occasions, is a must of Chinese New Year. Asking Bo Xuan whether he feels tired or not that he has to do everything by himself, he just smiled and said, a�?It is hard though, I am happy and satisfied.a�?
