This upscale western restaurant features a short, but excellent, menu of a la carte entrees, ranging from a Pan Roasted Rib Eye Steak (NT$760) and Tagliatelle with Duck Confit & Mushrooms (NT$310) to a couple burgers and weekly specials. Besides soups, salads and appetizers, several interesting desserts include Session's own special version of Caramel Pudding (NT$150) and the creative Pearl & Milk Tea (NT$150), a dessert variation of Taichung's most famous drink. Special set meals will also be available for occasions like Valentine's Day. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by S. Ying
A. With just 24 seats, Sessions is an intimate oasis in the heart of the Little Europe neighborhood.
B. The Chef's Special Mix of Yakitori (NT$380) has six items that include grilled eel, chicken wings, squid, prawns and shrimp. Sweet-and-salty Yilan Gaojha with Eel (NT$160) is made with eels, shrimp paste and milk and can be served cold. Eel's Liver Salad with Wasabi Sauce (NT$160) is also pictured.
C. While the menu has a number of Classic Cocktails (NT$280-330), the very experienced bartender (who has worked at TC 18 and Xaga clubs) can mix up almost anything, like this Zacapa Mojito (NT$300), plus four alcohol-free "Mocktails" (NT$180).
