In 2017, Chef Eric Lin founded 【柳川 や】a bakery hidden in the alleys of the West District of Taiwan Taichung City, but there are always long queues of customers. The store's signature "Hoshino Polo Bun" is baked with "Hoshino Natural Yeast" and "Auburn Flour" to make it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and his bakery is the very first Taiwan bakery that uses Hoshino natural yeast throughout the store.
In 2021, Chef Eric published 【柳川 や波羅，星野酵母的熟成美味】, in 2022【柳川や吐司！隔夜酵種的完美烘焙：排隊名店師傅艾力克的職人吐司書】, it is the first recipe book that uses Hoshino natural yeast in an all-round way by a Taiwanese chef in Taiwan. Also his bakery achieved a record of daily sales of 2,000 Hoshino polo bun, & Famous IG check-in store with 10-month continuous daily queuing record.
