The Taiwanese Food Festival is put on by the local Orlando Taiwanese American community once a year, featuring games, food, and entertainment in a commercial park off of Orange Blossom Trail and SR 528.
Taiwan is one of my favorite places in the world to visit, not just for their friendly people and beautiful landscape, but also because of their amazing street food culture. The food of Taiwan features specialties from all over the mainland China due to migration trends after 1949 as well as its own homegrown cuisine.
Every evening, countless night markets pop up around the island featuring dishes like Taiwanese sausage in a rice bun, to giant fried chicken chops, and more.
One of our local celebrities, Eddie Huang of Fresh off the Boat fame, and his parents are members of the Taiwanese American community here in Orlando.
