A. The elegant-looking Yuei-Yang-Ro Eastern-style restaurant uses zen concepts to create a very attractive setting. Senior Executive Chef Wu Xin-chun oversees the preparation of a variety of traditional and creative Taiwanese, Cantonese and Hakka dishes.
B. The restaurant's signature "Jin Zhuan" pickles (NT$150/bottle) are created by the chefs. The pickles mainly consist of Chinese cabbage marinated with garlic, carrots, fish sauce and juice, giving it a smooth, sweet, sour and slightly nutty flavor, plus an appetizing golden color.
C. Fish Head Casserole (NT$320 or NT$580). To make this dish, the heads of chub fish are fried, before two kinds of soup stock (chicken bones and big bones) are added with lots of clams and a bit of specially-mixed satay sauce. This makes this dish filling and full of great traditional flavors. Before it's served, a big handful of chopped garlic sprouts are sprinkled on top. The final result, exuding spicy, refreshing aromas, is a big hit with connoisseurs of Taiwanese cuisine.
