         In the heart of Tainan City, near the old City Hall and across from the near-derelict former Hayashi Department Store, is Taoban, a restaurant offering Japanese cuisine presented in a Western style. If you're looking for a cozy place to enjoy exquisite steaks and be embraced by earthern flue music, Taoban could be your best choice. The eighth branch in Taiwan, and the first in South Taiwan, Taoban is part of the Formosa Plastics Group empire, which includes Wang Steak. Meals here are priced at NT$450 (plus 10-percent service charge), with beef, lamb, ribs, freshwater bream, and chicken options. All are roasted on a pottery plate (called "taoban" in Chinese). Regular customers include office workers having lunchtime meetings, and families eating out on the weekend. Most are aged thirty-something to sixty-something. No magazines or newspapers are offered here--Taoban's owners want customers to enjoy the food and good conversation with their companions, instead of being distracted by reading. --By Iva Huang
