     This friendly, relaxing restaurant follows in the footsteps of a popular first branch on DaYa Road and provides a peaceful retreat from the bustle of ChongDe Road, only meters away. Located on quiet residential lane, Botini is fronted by a little garden and, inside, is spacious with seating for about 70 in a setting that includes dark wood floors, rattan chairs, lots of magazines, relaxing music and plenty of art and knickknacks. Owner Miss Lai puts a lot of effort into the home-style food selection, which is made with fresh ingredients, including organic vegetables. The mostly Chinese-Japanese set meals start with NT$300 specials that come with rice, soup, fruit and drink. These include the Icelandic Cod and Sirloin Beef Pots. Layers of vegetables and mixed with fish and beef in a clay pot for a nicely-presented, fragrant dish. There are also NT$280 specials, like the Botini Beef Rice or Sweet Honey Chicken Leg Rice, presented in Japanese lunch boxes. A long list of coffees, teas and juices average NT$130 to NT$150. Heading downtown on ChongDe Road, cross JinHua North Road and turn left at the Yamaha cycle dealership. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Annie Liu
