Taste of Taiwan

DU HSIAO YUEH

Brand

In the modern days of culinary excellence, chefs are often well trained and equipped and have access to a great amount of ingredients; thus, the creativity and innovations from the kitchen have been mind boggling.  What about the old days?  A simple noodle dish or a bowl of rice with mixed vegetables could be the most delicious dish for a whole generation. Tastes and memories are what made dishes great; however, some of these great traditions are lost as we live through such a fast-paced world. One of the most iconic brands in Taiwanese culinary history is in Toronto, bon appétit.

About The Artist

Taiwan Du Hsiao Yueh dates back to 1895. Ancestor Hong made a living by fishing in Tainan. Whenever the sea state was rough, he could not go fishing. During those rough sea months called “Hsiao yueh” by fishermen, he began selling noodles to pass(du)these months(hsiao yueh)instead. At first, he peddled the noodles with a shoulder pole. Before his stand, a lantern was placed marking six words ”Du Hsiao Yueh Dan Zai Noodles” . People liked this unique taste and it became so popular that Mr. Hong continued to sell it branded “Du Hsiao Yueh Dan Zai Noodles”. Now the fourth generation continues to run this brand.
