      As soon as you step onto the sixth floor of the New York New York Mall, two red lanterns with the Chinese character for "red" written on them grab your attention. The main lobby has eight transparent pillars bearing the names of famous liquor brands; these exhibit a welcoming atmosphere. The ocean-blue display area contrasts strongly with the red wall, and therefore exudes a strong, lively feeling. The interior design combines Chinese elegance and European romance, encouraging one to think beyond the normal boundaries.

   Head Chef Yuan Li-ming has been in this industry for about twenty 20 years, and was appointed chef to former President Lee Teng-hui. He has successfully transferred dim-sum making techniques from Hong Kong to Taiwan. Having worked in Asia for many years, and respectful of local eating cultures, Yuan has designed dishes to be lighter, and incorporated seasonal differences and vegetarian requirements. Details such as the amount of oil used, and the size of the flame, are careful controlled.

   Scallop Bean Sprout Dumplings (three for NT$100) are made in a similar way to shrimp dumplings, but the bean sprout fillings make them taste especially moist and smooth. Cucumber Fish Rolls (two for NT$100) are made by wrapping shrimp and fish together using cucumbers and laver. Immersed in soup stock, the rolls taste very refreshing; the fresh seafood fillings enhancing the taste.

   Also served here is Chinese Caterpillar Nutritious Soup (Men's Soup) and Beautifying Snow Jelly Soup (Women's Soup). Accommodating seasonal changes, Rouge Restaurant is now offering dishes made with special healthy ingredients to allow busy Taipei folk to pamper themselves.

   There is a special VIP and dining room suitable for private parties or office gatherings. Manager Tsai Chung-shung says: "We really hope to bring our five-star restaurant management experience into this mall, and provide to the public a better dining environment." Combining the visual refinement of the West with dishes that meet Taiwanese tastes is Rouge's main achievement.
