Uncommonly Fine Dining

by Hon-Lin Lin / translated by Heidi Yong

       Fu Yuan outwardly resembles a common dwelling in Soo Chow, China. Dining service, however, is anything BUT common.

       Chinese delicacies - like swallow's nest, shark's fin and abalone, all typical fare of Emperors - are served daily at Fu Yuan. It's said that men risked their lives to ensure such luxuries for imperial tables. The abalone itself is remarkable - with hardly a hint of cholesterol, it was a fitting choice for those seeking immortality. Why, the opportunity alone to taste these tempting tidbits was unthinkable for just anyone! That is, until Fu Yuan opened up.

       Fu Yuan fuses the best of West and East in food. Their Coral Fin Soup, for instance, is garnished with lobster and prawn and is a dish to-die-for. Their swallow's nest is carefully prepared and boiled to perfection before joining a rich sweet bean broth. Their lightly fried goose liver crowns silky white tofu, and comes with a secret sauce that's delightful. And, their tuna belly, the fillet mignon of fish, couples with succulent scallops for a superb seafood salad.

       Fu Yuan's setting is equally delicious. Grandiose space, replica furnishings and brilliant artworks lend panache. The place nearly bursts with elegance - royal ambiance with wine, decadence and delectable dining.

       Fu Yuan captures the essence of Chinese cuisine in nouvelle style. It's a fabulous experience that, naturally, comes with a price. Lunch starts at NT$780; dinner at NT$1,580. This place is a "must", whether you treat yourself or opt for impressive entertaining.
