As the name suggests, pumpkins are a main attraction at Pumpkin Curry. The owner, Jonathan Kuo, enjoys pumpkins not only in his curry, but also gracing the walls of his stylish restaurant. Hand-picked pumpkin decorations, ranging from real melons to cross-stitchings, are proudly put on display and quite a sight to see. The menu at Pumpkin Curry is impressive as well, offering a wide variety of curry-related dishes, including Curried Rice, Noodle, Gratin, Pasta, and Hot Pot with an assortment of meats, seafood, vegetables and, of course, pumpkin. Owner-chef Kuo loves eating and making curry, and has spent much time creating his curry formulas from 20+ spices, none of which rely on salt and sugar for flavor. His specialty, Curry Hot Pot, requires four days of cooking; the process is illustrated with cartoon drawings around the restaurant. Curry is ordered by spiciness (1-5) and meal type (single, combo, takeout). Single orders (around NT$200) come with soup and tea, combo orders (around NT$300) come with salad, beverage and dessert. Takeouts are cheaper. For those craving something sweet afterward, Pumpkin Curry offers a selection of desserts (NT$40-60), such as cheesecake and Black Forest Gateau.
