Taiwan Style Theatre Restaurant: Centered on Taipei magazine

The February 2012 issue of the Community Services Center’s publication, Centered on Taipei, is out now.  Check out my article on a Taiwanese-style interactive dining experience, where you can learn basic Taiwan puppetry (budaixi) skills from a puppet master.  And the food is pretty good, too.

About taiwanxifu

‘Taiwanxifu’ (pronounced ‘shee foo’) means ‘Taiwan daughter-in-law’ in Chinese and has been my nickname ever since I married my Taiwanese husband, Sam. I love sampling Taiwanese food, even local specialties such as stinky tofu, pigs blood cake and Taipei beef noodle soup with offal. But there are many other options on the menu. Promise!

  1. Sounds fun! So it’s good for kids, too? Even two year-olds? (He asks, hopefully.)

      Our little boy, who is about the same age as your daughter I think, found it a bit too scary. But he was so fascinated at the same time …

    Your blog is like a treasure trove. Great article. I have a Taiwanese friend who’s a stage actor and also makes puppets, and I’d like to surprise him with a visit to this place (perhaps he’s already been there).

    Anyway, I was a bit confused by the English website reservation form. Do you know if shows are available each weekend, or only if there are enough reservations? Also, one part says you can reserve 21 days ahead, but then it says don’t reserve more than 7 days ahead (?).

      Probably best to just give Bill Zheng a call. He is on 0952 190 345, or email seejoin@yahoo.com.tw. He speaks passable English. I am pretty sure their shows are available most weekends, but sometimes he is busy doing private shows and also performs at the Center for Performing Arts in Yilan. His restaurant is also becoming popular with tour groups, who often book out the entire restaurant.
