Tai Er is a Chinese restaurant chain specialising in suan cai yu, aka sauerkraut fish, with over 400 outlets in its native China.
Tai Er is well-known for its signature soupy sauerkraut fish, which is served in different sizes ranging from an individual portion to a gigantic platter known as the Feaster. The spicy mala soup is loaded with Sichuan peppercorns, dried chillies, sauerkraut, filleted tilapia and a sprinkling of chrysanthemum petals for extra drama.
Made from the finest raw materials and unexpected harmony, the creations express themselves in unusual ways to delight loyal and initiated fans and enlightened novices.
The company created in 1961 at 34 boulevard saint germain in Paris by Desmond Knox-Leet, Christiane Gautrot and Yves Coueslant extols the idea of ultimate luxury, for oneself and without compromise.
