One of the most common questions that customers ask is how the restaurant came up with its name.
If history has proven anything, it is that humans love garlic. Humans have been using it for well over 6,000 years. The Ancient Egyptians used it not only for food but medicinal treatment for infections and circulatory ailments. In China, garlic has long been used to aid digestion and it was even believed that garlic can help lift depression. In Taiwan, garlic is an essential cuisine ingredient and used in virtually every dish.
Modern science has taught us that garlic contains a compound called allicin. Allicin is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-oxidant properties. This means that eating garlic can improve your immune system, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and even prevent cancer. Therefore, garlic is literally one of the best natural medicines that nature has to offer and the best representation for the dishes served at The Purple Garlic.
The purple colored garlic is an herb that is unique in appearance and more beautiful compared to its more common white counterpart. Purple garlic, which is also known as “Hardneck garlic”, renders slight sweetness to the dishes it is used in. Also, in many parts of the world, purple is the symbol of royalty, which is what The Purple Garlic wants its guests to feel in their dining experience. Therefore, the color purple was chosen to represent the restaurant.
The Purple Garlic, a name that symbolizes an emphasis on health, taste, and beauty, is a restaurant that wants to provide its customers with delicious, authentic Taiwanese dishes and a great dining environment, all while helping ensure the health and well-being of its customers.
