Since she was young, Durian Tree Thai
Cuisine General Manager Miss Du learned about the management
of international chain restaurants from her mother.
After studying food and beverage management in America,
Miss Du returned to Taiwan to establish this Thai-style
restaurant. Thai chefs have created new dishes that
retain "pure Thai" flavors. One of the characteristics
of Durian Tree is their open-style, 28-dish menu, which
is categorized according to preparation method and includes
pictures and recipes. Some of the dishes are not only
delicious but also fun to eat, including the two dishes
pictured. --By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara Steenstra
A. Colorful Three Flavored Curry Bar
(NT$380): the three-colored curries (yellow curry--beef,
red curry--pork, green curry--chicken) are placed in
containers made from bamboo sections in Zhu Shan. The
dish comes with French bread and green vegetables. This
is a delicious combination when dipped with bread or
eaten with Thai rice.
B. Xiang Lan Leaf Chicken (NT$260):
Marinated de-boned chicken is wrapped in special, spicy
Xiang Lan leaves from Thailand, then deep fried and
eaten with a coconut sweet sauce for a tender, sweet
and sour taste.
