Restaurant Go has simple, low-key exterior decorations and an open kitchen. Chef Scott personally attends to everything, from hand-picking ingredients to providing diners with excellent cuisine. Having studied French cuisine in Japan for a year under the meticulous guidance of Japanese and French teachers, Scott returned to Taiwan to work in places like The Landis Taipei Hotel and Taichung's Hotel ONE. All courses prepared with his skilled culinary techniques are guaranteed to satisfy a diner's desires. Desserts are handmade by professional dessert chef Lin. Lunch meal sets start from NT$250 and include salad, soup, bread, dessert and coffee or tea. Dinner meal set start from NT$550. Main courses for both lunch and dinner sets are different, and both provide three choices for diners to select from. On weekends, only the dinner meal set is served, throughout the day. The menu changes according to seasonal ingredients to ensure a varied dining experience. --By Lishea Zheng, translated by Naomi Lai
A. The restaurant's simple but bright entrance.
B. Dinner with Roasted Lamb Bacon Potato Cake, Garlic Flavor (NT$620) which comes with a Go's style Nicoise Salad (with okra, tuna paste and vegetables), Water Bamboo with Clam Fish Soup, and Fish Fillet Sauted with Ratatouille (using fresh daily-purchased white fish). The lamb from the main course is tender, and its wild flavor pairs best with the garlic sauce. Desserts are handmade and so delicious that it's hard to stop from swallowing the whole thing in one big gulp.
C. The simple but fluid dining space showcases the kitchen, which takes center stage for an elegant cooking show.
