Champagne lovers will not be unfamiliar with Rico Padre in the Seventh Redevelopment Zone. With its unique architecture with triangular glass surroundings, it is only upon entering that you may realize that there is a huge pool on one side with outdoor seating. On the other side is another large structure. Altogether, this place seats about 150 people. The style follows the simple, clean lines of the Northern European school, which is rather rare in Taichung. The menu has pages and pages of champagne choices, with over 200 to choose from. The 1996 Champagne King is NT$980 per glass. Other alcoholic drinks and non-alcoholic beverages are also available. Food-wise, the manager says that the menu is altered once every season, although most dishes are French country-style. The Iranian Caviar sells for NT$2,500 and the Traditional Foie Gras is NT$580. Apart from club time, an English style Afternoon Tea is available between 2 and 5 p.m. French-style dinners are also available after 5 p.m. Whether you are sitting indoors or outdoors, Rico Padre's beautiful surroundings, great champagnes and wines, and tasty food will help ensure a satisfying experience.
