JO TO

3, Lane 248, ZhongXiao East Road, section 4, 1F
Closed 停業

--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara Steenstra

Over 10 years ago, Jo To was known among Taipei gourmands for its fresh ingredients and delicious food. Then owner Li Hong-rong closed down his business and left the country so his children could pursue further education. After a long absence, his son Li Wei-Qing, who graduated from French Cuisine and Management Studies, has returned to Taipei with his father to reopen Jo To. In addition to Italian and French cuisine, the restaurant also offers light Japanese meals and hot pots. One attention getter on the Western menu is the Rossini Filet Steak with Foie Gras and Truffle Sauce (NT$880). Prepared according to Italian musician and gourmand Rossini's own recipe, this wonderful combination of foie gras and fillet steak is reminiscent of Rossini's music. The Japanese-style hot pots are another major attraction. Fresh ingredients compliment the superb soup bases, prepared in a high-quality stainless steel pot that transmits heat quickly, and helps maintain food freshness. Business lunches are priced between NT$280 and NT$360. Add NT$120 to NT$200 to any Western main course and you get a set meal. Hot pot set meals start at NT$520. Jo To owners sincerely invite everyone to come and experience the art and philosophy of great food.
