Recently, two young Hong Kong-raised lads started their own Hong Kong-style eatery, "Zoom In," selling creative Italian cuisine. You might have expected them to open a Cantonese-style diner or one of those now popular tea restaurants, but owners A-Feng and Ryan really wanted to make a difference. A-Feng socializes with the customers and waits the tables. Ryan takes charge of all the fine flavours this place has to offer. Zoom In has a different take on how Italian cuisines should taste and they want create their own style. We recommend that you try the set meal options, not only are they value for money, you can also taste where all their creativity. Don't forget to leave some room for the dessert Fire Ice Mountain. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

B. In order to keep up the creativity, Zoom In changes their menu every two weeks. The Linguine with Scallop in Black Truffle Cream Sauce (NT$220) is a good choice.
