Le Cep is two places in one. The first
floor is dedicated to Le Cep Tea products, while the
basement houses Chez Sabrina. This is a place of comfort
and quality. Spots and chandeliers set a warm lighting
mood across a variety of plush sofas and within two
luxurious VIP rooms. The music is predominately bossanova,
jazz and a bit of rock, played at a volume that lets
you both enjoy the music and hold a conversation. Cold
plates and beer bites accompany premium Belgian single
beers (Le Chouffe 800ml at NT$700), and single malt
whiskies, topped out with the McCallum 25-year-old Scotch
for NT$11,000 a bottle. However, the place really hits
the mark with its smart selection of drinkable wines.
The house wine is an excellent Columbia Crest Shiraz
from Washington, USA. It's a great bargin at NT$1,400
a bottle or a mere NT$250 per glass. The popular Wolf
Blass Shiraz is reasonably priced at NT$1,500 a bottle.
Prices vary from there, reaching the high mark with
the '89 Chateau La Tour for NT$11,500. Chez Sabrina
makes for a great after-dinner hangout.
