It’s hard to overlook a restaurant where the philosophy is creating meals that bring happiness through joyful cooking. Taiwan’s leading high end vegetarian restaurant – found in two locations (Taipei and Kaohsiung) – Yu Shan Ge is the culinary devotion and dream of founder Eric Chen. With every dish crafted to be a work of art that inspires the diners, Yu Shan Ge’s signature dish is monkey head mushrooms in black pepper sauce, for which mushrooms are marinated 24 hours before being tenderized and fried. It’s the closest thing to vegetarian steak you’ll find in Taiwan. Book ahead.
