Before I jet off to Taiwan, I have myself a Hot Soy milk Latte…but, Starbucks…tsk tsk tsk- I’m not Mr. Jassica…Hahaha. They really do have some good marketing! 😉

Fire Roasted Corn Salad NT$240. Basil, Overnight Tomatoes, Pickled Jalapenos, House Made Jalapeno Cheese & Balsamic Vinagrette. I really liked this! The house made jalapeno cheese had such a nice kick, and the fire roasted corn salad was perfectly made. I loved this dish! It was really yummy.

Deviled Eggs NT$180. Homemade Siracha, Crispy Charred Shallots. Another delicious treat! I loved the creamy, spicy egg topping. They were seriously delicious. I could have kept on going with this- I really wanted to order another order of this!

Fried Chicken NT$480. Fried Local Herb Brined Chicken, Grilled Lemon & Roasted Garlic, Dipped in Homemade Siracha Honey Herb Glaze + NT$60. Oh wow! ANOTHER great main dish. I LOVEEEEED the crispy, crunchy, chewy outer fried chicken skin. And, the chicken meat was juicy, moist and tender on the inside. Dipped in a little of the honey herb glaze and homemade siracha sauce-Perfection!

Surf & Turf $380. Char-grilled Tripe & Squid in Tomato Stew topped w/ Breadcrumbs and Grana Padano. This soup was nice, light and refreshing- but definitely liked all the other dishes more.
