A taste of Taiwan at a Hole in the Wall.
Just a few days ago, Taiwan announced that Filipinos will be granted visafree entry to the republic effective November 1 of this year. That’s great news; for the past couple of years, Taiwan’s been as popular as Japan as our new favorite Asian vacation destination. But there’s a difference: Japan is more for sightseeing, while Taiwan really is essentially all about eating. Many of my friends fly to Taipei with a packed itinerary: and it’s all about food, food, and more food. Moveable feasts: lunch in three restaurants, not counting the street food grazing, and dinner? Even more inte0n4se. Not even Hong Kong or Singapore can claim this kind of fame. Taiwan is now THE primary culinary destination in Asia.
Famry bridges the gap in between hops to the Republic of China. It’s Taiwanese cuisine: simple but hearty. No gimmicks, no frills, no kitschy stinky tofu. Just very affordable, very good food just like in Taiwan. The restaurant’s kitchen crew is led by Kimmie Cortez. She’s been in the industry since she was 16, so expect perfection in her dumplings made inhouse daily. She’s particularly proud of Famry’s minced pork rice; it’s as genuine as it gets. The young chef comes from a food loving family, so naturally, her standards are sky high, and her palate, impeccable. The result? Taiwanese home cooking, done extremely well. Famry is all about family style dining, after all.
