  • Austronesians, “out of Taiwan” theory is still under debate
  • Pork knuckle introduced to Taiwan at this time, possibly
  • Also some Shinto shrines throughout TaiwanA lot of Japanese culture mixed in with Taiwanese culture todayOlder generation Taiwanese people can speak Japanese
  • The ba wan is Taiwan's mega dumpling.Made with a dough of rice flour, corn starch and sweet potato starch, it looks almost translucent after cooking. Pork, veggies and sometimes eggs are stuffed inside and gravy is poured on top. It is commonly believed that ba wan was invented during periods of scarcity. The simple pork dumpling was then a luxurious snack enjoyed only during the Lunar New Year festival. 
  • Comes in many variants, clear/non-spicy/spicy broth, thin/very thick noodles, different cuts of beef
  • The iconic eatery originated in Tainan about a century ago. A fisherman sold noodles during the slack season and the joint became so successful that he quit fishing altogether. The signature bowl of Slack Season noodles is served in shrimp soup with bean sprouts, coriander, minced pork and fresh shrimps.
