A. The Plum-Flavored Green Tea Treat (NT$130) is a popular beverage made with chilled Japanese green tea jello, sweet aloe jelly, and crushed Japanese green tea-flavored ice. The white and green colors of this treat are even more appetizing with the addition of plum paste and seaweed strips, for a refreshing summer dessert.
B. Summer's Filet Steak (NT$380), Japanese-Style Fresh Salmon with Rice (NT$380), Seasonal Deep-Sea Fish (NT$380)--The steak consists of huge, tender chunks of beef with very little fat. After grilling in a pan, these are served with a mixture of Japanese green tea and seaweed sauce, and sprinkled with fresh cucumber slices. The fresh salmon used in the second dish is served with salmon roe and served with a mildly-flavored Japanese soy sauce. The Seasonal Deep-Sea Fish uses quality codfish, grilled in a pan, then served with a special tofu sauce created from a combination of tofu, butter and garlic.
