Pseudo taiwanese food

View of the restaurant....lime green theme

salted chicken rice with taiwanese kim chi ( bleah)
Dinner was not tasty. In fact it was rather tasteless except for the kim chi which was sour and left a tinge of I'm-not-sure what in my mouth. Most unpleasant. I suspect this is not the real taiwanese flavour but the Malaysian-version of taiwanese food which has succeeded in  giving it a bad name.  Fusion food is acceptable ( pasta zamnai as an example) but cooking your own sorry version and palming it off as the real mccoy is mean. I would ( on behalf of malaysians ) like to apologise for misrepresenting the taiwanese cuisine and giving it a bad name.
