The Rhine Restaurant's Continental Flavors

By Angelica Montgomery

      Away from the squawking demands of the working world is the Rhine's sedate space of flowers, candles, incense, and glimmering lanterns. Dim lights drip from a dark wood ceiling; hands touch at the quiet tables in the shadows.

     The Rhine on Wufu 2nd Road, open for the past 15 years, is one of Kaohsiung's few 24-hour restaurants. The soothing atmosphere no doubt draws a soft sigh from many guests as they come in after working late.

      The cuisine rotates between a daytime and a nighttime menu, and is inspired by French, Italian and Japanese cooking. The wine, however, comes exclusively from France.

      Highlights from the daytime menu (available from 6 am to 10 pm) include Rack Of Lamb With Parsley And Garlic for NT$400 and Chicken Frontierre-Style for NT$230. Into the night, diners nibble on a number of stir fries and set meals for between NT$180 and NT$220 and noodles and soups for NT$200-280.

      Parties of 10 can enjoy a nine-course meal, including seafood, steak, salad, and drink, for NT$6000. Groups of twenty can use the private room on the second floor, while larger gatherings get full use of the third floor, including plush couches and a karaoke machine.

      The first floor has a number of little shops, offering candles, pottery, and fashions with an Indian flavor.

      In addition to the 24-hour establishment on Wufu 2nd Road, there are two other Rhine restaurants in Kaohsiung, both of which keep more conventional hours. See the listings on page 39 for details.
