Taiwanese cuisine is a blend of flavors and innovation, both regional and global. Taiwanese culture had its fair chair of foreign influences throughout history that made their way into the local cuisine.

Traditionally, Taiwanese cuisine has a strong base in Chinese culinary habits, but freshness and availability were the major forces that shaped the cuisine. The traditional hot pot and soup-based dishes are the most important staples of Taiwanese cuisine. And since Japan also greatly influenced Taiwanese cuisine, eating fresh seafood is more prevalent than red meats.

When it comes to popular Taiwanese meals, many of them include non-halal ingredients, especially pork.

The halal foods in Taiwanese cuisine include Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup, Taiwanese hotpots, Century Egg, xiao long bao, and bubble tea.
