Southern City, with a more than 10-year history in Jung He, recently opened its third branch on Da An Road. The yellowish-orange table cloths, Thai-style leather wall hangings and carved silver water glasses are all very exotic-looking. The owner is an overseas Chinese from Thailand and serves up excellent Thai, Myanmar and Yunnan cuisine. All of the dishes are made to be as authentic as possible including the spicy and sour squid salad (NT$220), Thai spring roll (NT$100 for an order of three rolls), Niu Ba Hu Bao (Yushan beef soup--NT$250) and fish packed in banana (a dish unique to the Bai Yi Tribe of Yunnan--NT$400). A dish soon to be added to the menu, Guo Chiao Mi Hsien (tentatively priced at NT$150), is highly recommended. This traditional Yunnan dish has a delicate soup-stock base to which fried nuts, meat (chicken, beef or seafood) and thin rice noodles are added. In addition, this restaurant is currently renovating the basement area to serve as a grocery store for Thai, Myanmar and Yunnan ingredients. If customers have preferences for particular dishes and are interested in trying them out at home, they can buy these ingredients in the basement, and the owner's wife can provide the recipes. -By Priscilla Chen
