Xin Pu Yuan Chinese Restaurant has been
in business on XinYi Road for over 10 years and has
always enjoyed a good reputation. It recently relocated
to premises opposite the Hotel Royal and reopened with
a brand-new look. Owner/General Manager Sun wanted his
customers to be able to sample Hong Kong-style roasted
meats, Shanghai-style home cooking, dim sum from central
China and creative Chinese desserts at his establishment.
Everything here is made from the freshest ingredients.
The dim sums are all made on site, the soup bases are
cooked from three chickens, and they guarantee that
no MSG is used. The desserts here have a texture that
you will not find elsewhere, thanks to Japanese dessert
expert Miss Sakai, who is specially employed as a technical
director. The Baked Pudding with Tapioca (NT$120), the
Jelly with Mixed Fresh Fruit (NT$150) and the Warabi
Sweet (NT$120) are very popular. The well-loved Three
Delight (NT$120) is prepared by cooking fruit juice
and agar on a low heat without adding any water. Assistant
Manager Jiang also recommends the Steamed Bamboo Shoot
(NT$300), the Marinated and Braised Hand Shredded Chicken
(NT$280) and the King Fish Steamed in Casserole with
Rice (NT$320). The Spice Boiled Beef (NT$420) is not
only popular in Shanghai, it is also one of the most
popular dishes in this restaurant.
