Lin Jin Sheng Xiang lies in the old street near Wanhe Temple of Nantun District in Taichung. In 1866, the establisher Lin Wang Sheng (since 1912) made a living as a noodle maker and opened the opportunity of flour and tasty food. During the times when there was a scarcity of goods and materials, the second-generation Lin A Tu noodle tortoise cakes and other confectionary. As the ingredients were authentic and their qualities were excellent, they were widely favored within Nantun and became the top choice in festivals and daily life. That was why this shop is called “Mian Gui A Tu” in Nantun streets. Its signet still remains up till today. As we recall the memory of it, we should remind ourselves of the traditional methods and respected quality. Having experienced the refinement for over one hundred years and inherited the traditional method of handy manufacture, such a century-old shop in the 5th generation displays demands correspondent to modern health and marvelous tastes, making it successful to make another local specialty “muâ-ínn” in Nantun into combination. At the same time, they have shouldered the sense of responsibility of local cultures and taste inheritance. That’s how a century-old shop is built. Lin Jin Sheng Xiang had preserved historical traces and made new materials into combination. Inside the old streets, you may enjoy the déjà vu Chinese afternoon tea there. The intermingling of old and new generations and aging traces both remind us to show strong gratitude and never forget their original goal. Over 100 years, every segment of youth cherishment and separation is a memory left in the old houses for ages. The cherishment which purified times has taken off the coat which covered up something, bringing smiles to the people.
