If you are looking for a home-cooked Taiwanese meal but cannot find someone to cook for you, then Hsing Yeh is your best alternative. Popular with Taiwanese diners, this restaurant is even busy during afternoon and late-night hours. This is one of the only restaurants in Taipei that serves rice congee with sweet potato (a breakfast staple) at all hours of the day. The cuisine is Taiwanese with a touch of Japanese influence. Each dish is prepared as if mom made it, so it is hard to go wrong when ordering from this menu.
I went to the Shin Yeh 101 for business lunch. The place is very clean, comfortable and the view is fantastic. The service is nice and efficient. The food is very delicious. I will go back again when I visit Taipei next time.
Having read glowing reviews (possibly written by employees or relatives of owners of this food chain) about this restaurant on this very website, my girlfriend and I ventured across town to find ourselves in the middle of Taipei's red light district and a very run-down establishment of what turned out to be Shin Yeh's principal restaurant in Sheungcheng street.
The service was very pushy and the food expensive. The food is very Taiwanese which most Westerns would be most uncustomed to - from animals' intestines and marinated raw seafood, this meant our selection was very limited. Out of the food we ordered, there was NO ATTENTION to detail in the way the food is prepared or cooked, and the dishes are VERY expensive by Taiwan standards. If you prefer maggots in your vegetables, or prawn meat which refuses to be freed from the shell, then you are in for a treat at this establishment, because this is what we had. Very very poor local food served at very very expensive non-local prices.
Can't say anything about other shops but the Sheungcheng street restaurant ought to be pulled to the ground. What a disgrace. Never again.
The menu has picture and english translations of the dishes. The menu is very long. There are many things that I wanted to try. The service was very friendly and when needed they would find an employee who spoke english. Good for family's, business, or date. Lively and chatty atmosphere. Enjoy!
