--By Dionysus, translated by Irene Chiang

La Gout is a bit like a fickle young girl--a sweet and romantic afternoon tea cafe during the day, and trendy, flashy-pink Technicolor dessert shop at night. "La Gout", which alludes to flavor and aroma in French, is a reference to the beautiful French-Japanese style desserts spotlighted on the menu. The main principle here is "Light & Delight", and its desserts do taste delightful with seasonally-picked fresh ingredients. For instance, the chef creates Apple Souffles by hollowing out an apple, stuffing it with egg white, fruit mash and apple wine, and baking it at 200 C for 10 minutes, before serving it with custard vanilla sauce. In addition, La Gout is the first dessert shop to feature everything from traditional Chinese medicine-type tea drawers to Western-style cocktail performances. Other forms of fun include unique "tea picking" at the Tea Bar and choosing an appropriate dessert to go with selections, or trying a dessert wine combination during the evening Lounge Time. This may include a plate of magical chocolate made by Valrhona Chocolate with a mirrored chocolate coating, accompanied with sweet and sour orange sauce. The layers of bitter and sweet flavors go perfectly with an aromatic Hardys Premium Shiraz Cabernet. A pleasant raspberry cheese with a sweet white wine from Bordeaux also makes a delightful treat. Dessert prices range from NT$120 to NT$150; wine by the glass starts from NT$150.
