Elephant is a Taiwanese family-run business with a twist: This family includes the talents of experienced British restaurateur Paul Gee. This combination manifests itself in interesting and exciting ways and has produced a formula clearly works--this new spot is already frequently packed. --By Courtney Donovan Smith, translated by Angel Pu

A. The Fresh Prawns, Clam, Squid Pizza (NT$200) is made with a thoughtfully spiced tomato sauce, a whole-wheat crust and served in a unique oblong shape. Also pictured is a variation on the French Canadian poutine, made using imported Bisto English Gravy (Chips with Cheese & Gravy, NT$120)

B. Elephant's mantra, 'Focus on Freshness', is very apparent with their most popular dish, the Spicy Seafood Pasta in a White Wine Sauce (NT$160).

ElephantC. The decor is clean and stylish, with bursts of creativity that highlight the family's artistic side. Different areas of the restaurant provide a different feeling and the upstairs also doubles as a gallery for local artists, changing monthly--making each visit almost as fresh as the food.
