Food plays a central role in just about any culture and in Taiwan, just like in any country, food is celebrated in the most special and unique way because it is a way of life. It has experienced continuing evolution to cater to the palates of a whole new generation of Taiwanese, and at the same time captured the attention of food enthusiasts from all over the world.
Filipinos are no exception, taking a special liking to favorite Taiwanese food delights such as the Soup Dumplings or Xiao Long Bao and of course, the all-time favorite Milk and Bubble Teas. These beloved food choices have thus endeared Taiwanese food products in the hearts of Filipino food lovers.
