Robin's, situated on the second floor
of the Grand Formosa Regent Hotel, has been newly renovated.
Combining stone grilled steaks, teppanyaki and a sofa
bar, this restaurant gives customers a variety of choices
when they walk in. The wine cellar-like wall at the
entrance and the transparent oval glass separation accentuates
the concept of the classic look Merged with the modern,
the style is delicate yet casual. Robin's has always
been famous for its steaks, so coming here for a steak
is the most natural thing to do. PR Manager Kate said
that the chefs try not to use too many sauces and marinades,
in order to bring out the true flavors. And, in order
to ensure the quality of the food, chefs personally
pick out the beef. One of the most popular dishes on
the menu is the Filet Mignon with Ocean Lobster (NT$1320).
The steak is grilled, using healthy olive oil, and comes
in a four-ounce portion for lunchtime diners. The Chateau
Briand (NT$3600 for two persons) is another all-time
favorite of food lovers. Each cow can only produce two
servings of this approximately 16-ounce Chateau Briand.
Only six servings are available each day. While you
enjoy your juicy tender steak, what can be better than
a glass of red wine? Robin's top-quality red wines are
well worth a try. Australian Kobe beef is also available.
