Places 2 Check Out: 101 Taiwanese Cuisine

Taiwan is an island just off the coast of China. It's main cultural and political center is the city of Taipei. And in the heart of Taipei is the second tallest building in the world. Boasting 101 floors and standing 1,667 feet above the city, Taipei 101 is something to see. And now you can, inside a new restaurant in Reno named for the towering building in the owner's hometown. Brett Lin explains his menu."Most of these are Taiwanese snacks, you know, quick wok, stir fry style."

Almost everything on the menu is either cooked or deep fried. And while it's similar to Chinese food, its unique sweetness sets it apart. The beef noodle soup is 101's signature dish. But they only make one pot of it a day. And once it sells out you're out of luck until the next day.  

The chicken soaks in a spicy yet sweet marinade to allow a burst of flavor with every bite and a nice little kick to top it off.  And the Taiwanese hamburger is a bun, similar to that of a pork bun, wrapped around your choice of ingredients.

And you know you're in good hands at 101. Everyone who works there is from Taiwan. "The chef is from Taiwan and also my dad and sister you see here, this is family."

And all the kids in Taiwan right now are drinking milky drinks. They come in all flavors, with or without bobba which are black tapioca pearls. From mango, to Thai iced tea to honeydew and if you can't decide, go with the purple one.   It's made from taro root.

For authentic Taiwanese food, 101 is definitely worth checking out. For more information go to www.101taiwanese.com
