V Di Ja, whose Taiwanese name means “hide here”, is hidden in a community next to Fengle Sculpture Park. It is run by a group of four friends who named it to express the idea that guests are welcome to dine here like at home.
Carefully-selected ingredients include Dounan-cultivated Koshihikari rice, locally-farmed meat, cherry ducks from Hualien’s Yuli Township, and US Prime beef. The chef, whose favorite pastime is traveling and savoring great cuisine, insists that all sauces and noodles here are handmade and avoids the use of any semi-finished products. His Italian cooking style is also infused with the Southeast Asian spices.
Top recommendations are Crispy Chicken (NT$250), featuring a free-range chicken leg and pesto-flavored chicken breast, and the juicy, chewy Northern Thai Lemongrass Pork Orecchiette (NT$380). Both dishes will pair wonderfully with beer or white wine. A la carte entrees may be upgraded to set meals and its worth noting that all dishes are freshly-made to ensure the best flavors.
