Le Gout de Paris owner Eden has been in the culinary business for a decade and has opened this French-style restaurant, serving everything from baked sweets to full-course meals. Eden and his staff cook their dishes from scratch, making them popular with many diners. While it's easy to miss this eatery, on a small alley, the small entrance courtyard is a serene spot for guests to relax in before and after meals. The classy black-and-white interior is great for any occasion, as is the partially-open kitchen area that gives a peek of the chefs at work. Some popular dishes have been compiled into three set-course meals (NT$690/880/1,080), or you can order a la carte from the menu, which changes every three months. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. The duck used in the Grilled Tender Duck Breast with Caramel Apple and Pate (NT$460) has a texture distinct from other duck dishes. Eden refuses to cut corners on cost, cooking this dish with pate and imported French fleur de sel salt which accents the natural sweetness and tenderness of the duck.
B. Risotto with White Truffle Sauce and Scallops (NT$320) is a signature Parisian dish.
C. The two young, talented chefs, Eden Yeh and French native Verge Fabien (previously assistant chef at a Michelin 3-star restaurant) work together to create the finest Parisian delicacies.
