       In the two-and-a-half years since she opened Bossa Nova, Clair Yu's Bossa Nova Cafe has become one of Nanwan's landmark restaurants, a place for relaxing and getting straight-from-the-horse's-mouth information, as well as superb dining.

       With a prime location directly facing the bay, and a choice of indoor and outdoor seating, Bossa Nova is also a great place to hide from the strong afternoon sun while enjoying a quality coffee.

       There are almost fifty items on the menu. Portions are well-sized--large enough to not leave you hungry, but not so huge as to limit the range of dishes a couple or small group could enjoy.

       Clair makes all the sauces herself. On the Asian side of the menu, one of her great successes is the Thai-Style Hot & Spicy Chicken (NT$200), which is both delightfully tasty and mild enough for spice-intolerant individuals. Another popular dish is the Fried Kimchi Beef (NT$250, pork version also available). There are plenty of vegetable options, such as Cabbage With Bacon (NT$150).

       Western dishes include spaghetti, lasagne, and the Bossa Classic Sandwich (NT$180, with French Fries), which features succulent chunks of chicken, and another of Clair's special sauces.

       Bossa Nova's decor is a blend of bright seaside colors and darker wood fixtures. Clair sometimes holds salsa parties, and rather than schedule live music, she instead encourages her friends to bring their instruments and play some tunes. "I let them do what they want!"

       She says she wants her guests to enjoy a real vacation feeling--"total relaxation." An avid water-sports enthusiast (drop in or send her an e-mail if you're interested in joining her informal, all-female sports/outdoors group), she's a fount of information about the area and it's facilities. "I want people to know what kind of fun is available!"
