---By Claire Tyrell Translated by Tre Gordon

Yu-Shan-Ge provides an exquisite dining experience. The interior is striking, incorporating the modern, traditional and objects from nature. The same attention is paid to their meals, which arrive resembling works of art. Health is central to their philosophy--all food is fresh, organic, prepared oil-free, and uses known naturally healthy ingredients. I sampled the Delicate Set Menu (NT$980), a tantalizing array of nine dishes that leads you on a wonderful exploration of flavours and textures: the smooth sesame of the "Invite the Moon to the Clouds" dish, the superb tanginess of the "Sweet Grass Vinegar", the intense flavours of mushroom and the chewiness of the rice in the "Lotus Leaf Pearl", and the sweetness of fruit. Monkey Head Mushroom Patties in Black Pepper Sauce were also much enjoyed! Set meals range from NT$580 to NT$2,780, and group meals are available for four to 10 people (NT$2,800-6,000). Snacks like "Yu Shan Grilled Pork Pastry"(NT$150) abound, and the unique Di Zhen tea, a special healthy blend including sweet potato and ginseng, is highly recommended.
