Celebrity couple Porsche Sun and Stephanie Lin have opened yet another restaurant. A Malaysian, Stephanie Lin's background makes her the perfect spokesperson for Goldfish Asia, which serves Southeast Asian cuisine. Like their other restaurants, atmosphere is the key. The retro-style crystal chandeliers, tea sets, medicine cabinet-style bar and the tall, large plants create a vintage Southeast Asian ambiance with an element of modernity. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid-back. Their Hainanese Chicken (NT$220) is the top choice for many diners. Specially selected tender young chicken is used to prepare this dish, which comes served with fragrant Thai rice and three different sauces--guaranteed to satisfy your appetite. The spicy-tasting Penang Prawn Noodles (NT$180) are prepared with a soup base made with many shrimp, and is only available here. It is also the favorite dish of the company's employees. Nasi Lemak (NT$220) and Bak Kut The (NT$220) are other authentic Southeast Asian dishes. There are set menus available for parties of two to 10 people, for NT$399 per person. These come with a Sour and Spicy Hot Pot or a Pickled Vegetables with Pork Hot Pot.
