Taiwan Traveli?sDelicacy - Creative Culinary - Oujiayena��TaiwanDay

Seafood freshly picked from daily fish markets

Located in the alleys of Jinzhou Street and Songjiang Road, Oujiayen is concealed within Taipeia��s residential buildings, with only a little blue signboard for guests to recognize. It is operated at a just low profile that people can likely miss out. However, the truth is that it is an extremely famous restaurant, known for its creative delicacies. It doesna��t really need luxurious decoration to allure passersby, for Oujiayen doesna��t even serve customers without reservation.

Best ingredients at large portions

Among its assorted appetizers, the hot pepper dish was fried with garlic and shrimp for 12 hours for the peppers to absorb the flavors before they can be served. Another extremely popular dish which customers always request is chefa��s shrimp and glass noodles hot pot. Originally Oujiayen serves without a menu, as Brother Wu, the chef, hand picks every ingredient from the market every morning. However, as the name of shrimp and glass noodles hot pot spread out swiftly, it has been frequently requested by customers when they make reservations. The magic about this dish is that the glass noodles absorb the savor of the soy sauce and the freshness of the shrimp. It is juicy and delicious, which can be served as the main course. In case youa��re wondering if glass noodles can be served as the main course, then again, be assured, Brother Wua��s shrimp and glass noodlesa�� hot pot definitely qualifies for a main course! As Brother Wu puts it, a�?the dishes are so exquisite and served in large portions, there is no way customers can finish it all if they have too much rice!a�? For those who must have rice for dinner, worry not, Brother Wu also welcomes anyone to have as such rice as they want if it meets their satisfaction!

However, if you are one of those who pays a lot of attention to the decorations of the restaurant, it is suggested that you do not dine at Oujiayen, for there is little interior design, perhaps even modest than your own kitchen! Money is fully used on top ingredients, according to Brother Wu. It is not regular mushrooms but oyster mushrooms used for the dish mushrooms and white cabbage stew; while organic Ganoderma mushrooms, also known as the king of herbs, used for increasing the flavors of Brother Wua��s chicken soup is from Yunnan, mainland China, one of the world-known locations where best Ganoderma mushrooms are grown. Roasted duck is another dish that requires complicated procedures including stew and fry before being served at the table.

If it is a restaurant with the finest of creative culinary served at large portions which sometimes reminds you of the homemade dishes that you are looking for, then Oujiayen is the place to go!
