Green Island Taiwan Food
We did find the food in Green Island to be unique from others dishes found in north Taiwan. Aboriginal dishes seemed to have been combined with Taiwanese Chinese style dishes to create a certain kind of Aboriginal-Taiwanese style of food unique to just Green Island. Since it was an island the food dishes were very seafood based.
The spices used seemed different and sometimes unique in nature. The Chinese flavors from North Taiwan were still sometimes there, but the flavor seemed to have a stronger south Taiwan influence that was different and refreshing.
Green Island Taiwan – Has a long history of WWII activity and some post-war negative activities. The island has now been restored, and all negative activity disbanded.
