Hot Pot & Teppanyaki
909, Taiwan Blvd, Sec 2, Xitun Dist
This elegant hot pot restaurant offers high-end ingredients, including premium seafood like king crab and lobster pulled fresh from a giant aquarium. All of the delicious soup bases--cooked from hen meat, ham, scallops, chicken claws and pork bone--nicely complement meat and vegetables. Other options include a spicy broth made with Japanese seaweed and top-grade dried bonito flakes, plus Ganoderma Ambonese chicken broth, and truffle mushroom broth. There are also seafood and steak combination set meals (from NT$1,980 for 2) that include a homemade appetizer, premium meat slices, seafood, seasonal vegetables and desserts. --By Uvia Chang, translated by Anna Yang
