The menu is a 8-course menu at NTD1,850 + 10% service charge each. Bread is a la carte but highly recommended. Wine is additional of course and that evening we ordered a bottle of Sancerre, which was very refreshing and went well with the food.
|porridge (in the porcelain cup) (清粥) / turnip (大頭菜) / fermented tofu (腐乳)|
the turnip was very refreshing and i love the fermented tofu
the porridge was quite sweet
|whipped butter with chocolate chips and pepper (not included in set)|
|scallop / cauliflower couscous / spicy ponzu|
The scallop is cooked medium well and tasty~
|beef / tongue / cracker|
a playful twist on the beef tongue cracker.
the caramelized onion was very delicious but overpowered the beef tongue.
|buttermilk / remoulade / gamberoni|
the prawn underneath the shredded veggies was very, very delicious!
|leek oil / daikon / spring vegetables|
|hirame skirt / pickled jus / meuniere|
the hirame is very "fat" and the clams are plump and juicy
|thunder tea / almond mocha / shaved bean curd|
I have never had traditional thunder tea so I could be bias.
my Taiwanese friend liked it but it's just not my cup of tea
a bit dry. I have had better elsewhere.
Overall, the meal is very light and refreshing. I was worried I would end up hungry but the portion ended up being just right. The dishes showcased the various local ingredients and the cooking techniques have transcended the everyday dish into a different level. Definitely recommended if you can get a reservation.
