Named for the child of the owner, this
restaurant is managed with similar tender care. With
years of overseas study, Chef Jimmy Chiang brings a
mixture of European and Japanese experiences to the
table. Devotion to quality is evident in dishes like
the Roasted Spring Chicken Provence Style, which is
well-spiced and so juicy you need to take care not to
burn yourself when taking a bite. Other dishes include
the fragrant, soft-boned Red Wine Beef Stew Omelet Rice
(NT$400) and the Spicy Beef Pasta (NT$368), which features
a ma la hotpot sauce. Breakfasts, lunches, authentic
tiramisu and exquisite puddings are also on offer. Lunches
come with salad and an endless supply of freshly baked
bread. Jack aims to offer five star quality at reasonable
prices, and their devotion to the task is worth checking
Pan-Seared Cod, Saffron Lemon Sauce (set meal NT$980).
Tender cod in a fragrant sauce; light, flavourful and
enhanced with fresh fig.
JACK's classic, candlelit decor enhanced with soft jazz.
