South African Fish House (XinYi A11 branch)
11, SongShou Rd, 4F
With their exotic menu selections and tasty flavors, South African Fish House has enjoyed a steady stream of costumers since its opening. Located on XinYi Road, it is a prime location for expat and tourist visitors, who can often be seen on the outdoor patio. This South African restaurant's new branch just opened up inside Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Department Store and occupies 300 pings of space. The decor here only slightly hints at the rugged South African theme of the other location. This branch also has an outdoor seating area. When Christmas and the new year comes around, it might not be a bad idea to make your reservations ahead of time. Located very near the Taipei 101 building, it is an ideal spot for holiday parties. --By Joan Chang, translated by Ann Lee
