Since opening its doors in late July, Tu Pang has already created enough of a buzz to make advance bookings essential if you want a seat. The set menu changes every week with a five-course offering at lunch (approx. NT$480) and a few additional courses for dinner (approx. NT$700). The key to this establishment's success is its commitment to using the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients and careful attention to every dish served. --By Paul Adams, translated by S. Ying
A. The open interior decor has an "under construction" feel to it and adds to a relaxed, rustic vibe. Next to the kitchen you can also purchase items that range from homemade jams to crayons made from vegetables.
B. The Roast Courgette appetizer is stuffed with ground pork and topped with cheese, making it a light, delicious start to your meal.
C. One of the twin main courses, Grilled Sea Bass with Assorted Vegetables, is particularly succulent.
