In some countries, restaurants are sometimes divided into special sections that each offer different dishes within a certain price range; customers are then charged according to where they ate. Market Cafe at Taipei's Ambassador Hotel, takes the lead in this trend and now provides similar options. For weekday lunches and dinners, guests can enjoy either the Farmer Market Salad Bar (NT$420), the Global Noodle Bar (NT$420) or the Top of the Market Carvery (NT$580)--three themed, buffet-style sections that give a more customized choices to diners. Apart from these three areas, you can still savor their full buffet (NT$880), which includes everything from Indian curry dishes, Italian risotto and Cantonese dim sum items, to creative "stir-fried" ice cream desserts. Market Cafe emphasizes healthy, environmental-friendly dishes made with fresh, natural ingredients, and the chefs prepare their dishes without adding any unnecessary seasonings, spices and preservatives. Ingredients are delivered fresh daily from vegetable gardens, markets and other locations. In addition, when you order dishes, chefs cook them in front of you at cooking stations for the freshest, tastiest dining experience. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

The Farmer Market Salad Bar features 30 different types of organic vegetables and fruits, with a choice of Japanese, Thai and Italian salad dressings, five yogurt-based dressings and eight dried nut varieties. Guests can pick and choose the ingredients they prefer, and allow the chefs to mix and match them at the cooking bar.
B. The Top of the Market Carvery offers generous portions of meat, cut into slices and placed directly on the grill so that the juicy flavors are sealed within.
