WuFu 2nd Rd., Kaohsiung City
Credit cards accepted
lunchtime and evening menu is very European in orientation,
featuring ox-tripe and snails, in addition to pork,
beef, and the highly-recommended lamb. Set lunches,
which include soup, a choice of salad, bread, and tea
or coffee, are priced around NT$400. In the evening,
when teppanyaki dishes make an appearance, and beers
and fine wines are available, most meals cost around
NT$700. Hot pots are NT$280; a 10-percent service charge
is added to every check. Between 12:30 am and 8 am
there's a special midnight menu, with sets (NT$220),
plus individual items such as soups, salads, and noodles.
This restaurant's decor resembles that of a rural European
inn, while the books on the shelves seem to have been
chosen more for their dusty covers than their contents
(some are about such dry topics as merchant shipping
or 1960s computer design). But the food is excellent,
the service is refined, and--as you might expect in
a place open 24 hours--the coffee is good and strong.
There are smoking and non-smoking sections.
