Awesome Sauce: Premium Taiwanese Condiments
Umami-packed condiments are arguably the heart of Taiwanese cuisine. Want to enjoy the taste of Taiwan at home? You’ll want to stock up on these sauces by Hongjia!
Chef Chen, founder of Hongjia, believes in making food products that he would also personally eat and enjoy; hence all of his products are made using natural and healthy ingredients, and without the use of artificial flavouring and preservatives.
The ultra-popular Fried Shallot Goose Oil is made from the essence of 7 to 9 geese, and are packed full of unsaturated fats. We love having this with a bowl of hot, fluffy rice! The Dried Scallop XO Sauce comes in Original and Spicy flavours, and is made using quality scallops, Jinhua ham, dried shrimps, garlic, shallot and chilli pepper.
Love the umami flavour? Try Hongjia’s Garlic Shrimp and Sakura Shrimp Sauce, great with eggplant and tofu! Other must-try Hongjia condiments include Fish Larvae Sauce, Ginger Sesame Oil, Wild Caviar, Scallop Shrimp Sweet Sauce, Dried Fish with Black Bean Sauce, Spicy Squid and Garlic Chilli Paste.
Fantastic Fusion: French-style Pineapple Cake
A delicious piece of buttery, sweet and tangy pineapple cake is a dream come true, but how about adding a French touch to this beloved Taiwanese snack?
Hailing from Taiwan, AR’S Patisserie elevates the traditional pineapple cake by combining French artisanal techniques with fresh Taiwanese produce. The brand uses trehalose, a healthy alternative that is not as sweet as other sugars.
With its pastry made 100% from almond flour and its filling made using local pineapples, this exquisite French-style Pineapple Cake has received an award in the Taipei Pineapple Cake Competition 2013.

Taiwanese Speciality: Salted Mullet Roe
The karasumi, or salted mullet roe, is a Taiwanese delicacy that can be enjoyed in many ways!
