Ji Pin Restaurant

Ji Pin is a renowned seafood restaurant. Specialities include shark fin, abalone, and mushroom and scallop dumplings. The restaurant has a modern New York-style decor.


The regional cuisine is a mix of Chinese, Japanese, and aboriginal Hakka styles. It is also influenced by its island geography and the scarcity of arable land. Fish and poultry, therefore, play a major role in local cooking. However, the base of all dishes is made up of seasoning varieties particular to Asian cooking, such as soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil, supplemented with black beans, peanuts, chilli peppers, and a local variety of basil.
