Vegetarian and vegan menus are not an afterthought at Si Chuan Dou Hua. The restaurant, known for its authentic Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine, has partnered with Taiwan’s Yang Ming Spring for a series of carefully considered plant-based tasting menus.
Expect a top-class sustainable dining experience from Jun 5 to Jul 31. Yang Ming Spring was awarded the Michelin Green Star for two consecutive years in 2021 and 2022, an award that recognises restaurants for their sustainable practices.
The restaurant has been a long-standing advocate of plant-based cuisine and fresh, handpicked ingredients from its mountain garden which surrounds the Shilin flagship in Taipei.
This year marks the fourth time Si Chuan Dou Hua is collaborating with the Taiwanese restaurant (they partnered from 2017 to 2019 to introduce a vegetarian selection).
Fresh, seasonal and delicious
No gluten-based mock meats here. The menu focuses on the natural flavours of freshly picked and seasonal vegetables such as Taiwanese bamboo shoots and Italian black truffles to create dishes that are nutritious as they are tasty.
Highlights include Monkey’s Head Mushroom that requires at least two entire days to soak, dehydrate and marinate. They are freshly baked upon order to ensure they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Bamboo shoots are one of Yang Ming Spring’s most popular dishes – and a must-try. They are specially imported from Taiwan, and served with just a touch of seasoning and simple tea salt dip on the side to showcase their freshness.
Soothe the soul with a bowl of Chlorella and Edamame Soup, a comforting dish topped with a shaving of imported Italian black truffles that is said to cleanse the upper respiratory tract and abdomen.
Accompany all your dishes with premium Taiwanese oolong tea. Yang Ming Spring has handpicked Hwa Gung Tea’s Lishan oolong tea, grown at over 1,700 metres on Lishan (Pear Mountain), to serve with its vegan selection.
