Normandie Teppanyaki, one of Taichung's oldest restaurants, comes highly recommended by those who have dined there over the years. Although it has now moved to an all-new location, it still upholds the philosophy responsible for its success. The Deng family father-and-son team of owners has always focused on providing quality teppanyaki suitable for gourmands for reasonable prices. Set-meal prices run from NT$180 (regular steak set) to NT$560 (Kobe steak set) and all ingredients are high-quality. For Chinese Valentine's Day in August, they are offering a "Romantic Set" for 2 people (NT$680/2 people) with steak and seafood. Every set here includes appetizers, soup, rice, bean sprouts, seasonal vegetables, dessert, and all-you-can-drink-coffee, black tea, juice and smoothies. --By Wang Xiao-ling, translated by Angel Pu
A. The restaurant has large french doors that allow diners to view the green trees in the park across the street. This comfortable and spacious dining area with a high ceiling also helps patrons feel more relaxed as they enjoy the fare presented by the skillful chefs.
B.The extraordinarily tender and juicy U.S. Beef with Bone Set (NT$380) is cooked by Chef Deng Zhe-yi, who has 20 years of experience, and is one of the winning menu selections here.
C. Some ingredients in the NT$530 Seafood Set (including codfish, crab legs, cuttlefish, and shrimp) are imported. The chef uses his excellent skills to bring out the full flavor of all these items.
