A. Amourlin's ingredients are all hand-picked by the chef, who mixes seasonal ingredients with special sauces to creates delicious low-calorie lunch sets (NT$350; set content changes regularly). There three entree choices for the dinner set (NT$980) are Bone-in Pork Tenderloin, Grilled Beef Back Ribs, and Pan-fried Wild Grouper.
B. The afternoon tea set (NT$300) is not only both tasty and healthy, but also comes with good portion sizes. The creativity used in preparation is obvious from the appearance and flavor of the desserts.
To create a relaxing, villa-like ambiance, Amourlin uses bright cypress wood flooring and elegant-looking furniture.
