The Chubby Panda introduces the Popular Food Culture of Taiwan

Chubby PandaThe ethnically diverse island of Taiwan, offers a fusion of many regional kitchens, says C. Chang, the entrepreneur at the helm of two new businesses at the Palm Beach Plaza, the Chubby Panda Food Court outlet and the Dream Bowl Aruba. Taiwanese cuisine, he explains, is influenced by cooking styles from main land China, such as Hunan and Szechwan, and is also inspired by the Cantonese style favored in Hong Kong.

Chang Chia-Yuan, a native of Taiwan, in business in the Caribbean for the past few years will be introducing the street food culture of this sub-tropical island to Arubans and visitors on the third floor of the Palm Beach Plaza, at the food court.

Prepare to savor rice tamales with meat and other fillings, oyster omelets, meatball dumplings, and slender beef noodles, with sweet pastries for dessert, a culinary experience reflecting the food prepared by street vendors in Taiwan’s popular markets.

The cuisine of Taiwan, C. Chang explains is usually milder than the spicy Szechwan, and the Chubby Panda chef, an expert Taiwanese cook will deliver a varied and unique experience, once the outlet opens on December 18th.

C. Chang’s other project, Dream Bowl Aruba, takes the classic sport of bowling up a notch with glow bowling, an exciting form of entertainment featuring glow-in-the-dark bowling balls.  Dream Bowl also houses pool tables, indoor basketball hoops, and a game room.  Adults can enjoy a complete premium bar, and express food service from Palm Beach Plaza’s food court.
