Following the huge success of its Dorayaki and Pinococo restaurants, Sing-ya Group broadened its Taichung dining options by opening a local branch of MeatGQ Steak, which gained fame in Taipei for its roasted dry-aged steaks, created by "steak master" Danny Deng.

Left: 6 oz. USDA Choice Top Cap (lunch set NT$2,100, dinner set NT$2,450) is grilled with longan wood till medium rare and sprinkled with salt, accenting the nice fragrance meat and wood flavors.
Right: Appetizer King Crab & Pomelo (NT$500) is prepared with king crab, avocado and pomelo.

During the low-temperature dry-aging process, the beef's moisture evaporates. Mold then grows on the surface of the meat, helping break down muscle tissue with natural enzymes. The result is a mature fragrance and succulent and tender texture. After the outer layer is removed and precious inner section is revealed, the beef is roasted over a high-heat wood fire to create a steak that is crispy outside but tender and medium rare inside, exuding appetizing grilled-meat and wood aromas.

Right: Apple Pie has a crunchy, warm outer layer enveloping fresh apple pieces and vanilla ice cream for a marvelous hot-and-cold sensation.
