This restaurant, whose name means “abundant” in French, is located in a former U.S. military home and focuses on the use of local ingredients to create eastern and western cuisine, with every single dish offering its own exquisite, unique flavors. During its first season since opening, Le Plein is offering a “banquet table” menu plus additional a la carte options (NT$180-1,050). With 12 dishes–including cold appetizers, starters, main courses and other items–the banquet menu is excellent for 2-3 diners or a family gathering. Tea Smoked Sasso Chicken Leg with Pickled Jicama (NT$280) is a very appetizing choice, as is the highly recommended Roasted Pigeon on a Musky Forest Bed with Mushroom and Wild Asparagus (NT$850). There are also on-tap craft beer, wines and sparkling wines to pair with the food and, for those bringing their own alcohol, there’s a NT$50 corkage fee. With limited seating, reservations are recommended.
