"P" here stands for "popover", a light, hollow egg-batter roll and American version of Britain's Yorkshire pudding. P+ may be Taiwan's only spot to enjoy these unique treats, discovered by the owners overseas. Besides nine regular popovers, there are another six breakfast (10 a.m.-12 noon) popovers, ranging from the Bacon, Scrambled Egg with Popover (NT$200, with salad, fries, drink) to omelet and Eggs Benedict varieties. Non-popover entrees include pasta and risotto and there's a NT$260 2-5 p.m. afternoon tea and NT$220 weekday lunch set. Drinks include imported Kusmi Tea, beer and wine. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by S. Ying
