Shin Yeh Taiwanese Restaurant @ 19 Liang Seah Street [Liang Court]

After 3 long tiring days of shifting things from the old house to the new house, we finally have some time to blog about Shin Yeh Taiwanese Restaurant [which by the way, is a blog entry that is long overdue].

Truthfully, as we go about blogging this entry, we really do miss Taiwan alot! Ever since Baby and I returned from Taiwan, we really had severe withdrawal symptoms. We really miss walking & shopping at the night markets till 1-2am in the morning and we also miss the glorious food there!

Since we were craving for Taiwanese food for such a long time and as we were also on the lookout for suitable wedding venues, we decided to check out Shin Yeh [a restaurant that serves Authentic Taiwanese Cuisine @ Liang Court].

The outlook/exterior of Shin Yeh is rather simple and has a clean zen look to it.

Here's the bar/cashier counter and the hostess stand.

As we mentioned, we were also on the lookout for wedding venues and Shin Yeh was shortlisted on our list. However, we found the venue to be unsuitable because there were pillars. But if you're looking to host a business meeting or a private family gathering, there are private rooms available and they vary in sizes.

Nevertheless, we had an enjoyable time dining there and here were the food dishes that we ordered.

We also ordered a pot of Taiwan Tea that cost us $12 [rather expensive but totally worth it]

Lu Rou Fan [a.k.a Steamed Rice with Minced Meat] in Taiwan is extremely popular and we just couldn't get enough of it [though we have to admit that Shin Yeh's Lu Rou Fan cannot match up to Taiwan's].

For side dishes, we ordered their....

Just when we thought our rather satisfying and filling dinner was over, the service staffs surprised us with a complimentary serving of Glutinous Rice Ball [a.k.a Muah Chee].

Here comes the moment of truth!.

Although the quality of the food was really superb and they tasted quite close to the food we had in Taiwan, we honestly felt that it was way too pricey. In fact, great tasting food in Taiwan didn't cost us that much when we were there.

Nonetheless, if you're into fine dining and you're looking for a suitable venue for a formal occasion [like business meetings or family gatherings], you might want to consider Shin Yeh because both the food and service are tip-top! :)

Stay tuned to more updates from us.

God bless!
