With so many restaurants out there saying they sell natural meals made with healthy cooking methods, "green" eateries are a major trend in the city. Original Taste is yet another option for nutrition-conscious eaters in Taichung. Located on a serene and spacious field of grass, Original Taste is always packed with people and sounds. This restaurant offers steaks, red wines and vegetarian dishes that are made without the use of over-the-top seasonings; diners can simply enjoy their food and drinks in a brightly-lit and comfortable setting. --By Vincent Huang, translated by Ann Lee
