TANG 四知堂 臺灣, Taipei, Taiwan


四知堂, Taipei


After sunset, the darkness and cool spring wind had come to the city of Taiwan. On the small street, the orange sodium light had shown us the way to the restaurant. The auto mobile or auto vehicle traffic was few but relaxed local people groups were going through the street. This restaurant is located on the quiet street brighten by the orange light.


When going into the restaurant, the beautiful lady had seen us to show our table. The madam introduced the meal list in frequent Japanese. The other staff can speak English. The tables seem to come from Northern Europe. The atmosphere is very comfortable and home like feeling with slow tempo which is very different from the city of Taipei. The restaurant has very large space for the number of customer. Each table is nicely placed for the customers. Light brown woods based interior and furniture are very modern have beautiful contrast with the dark grey stones or locks in the small garden.

For our starting.
 
The foods are very nice for Japanese. The tastes of the dishes are low salt, not strong, soft and easy for Japanese. Our first course was braised tofu. It was Chinese taste with sweet and soy source based, but flavour and taste are mild and soft for our nose and tongue.

The second course was steamed fish. This is our favourite food in Taiwanese food. The fish was steamed with soy source, rice wine and some spice. The shape of the fish which have been already steamed was very lovely and has shine on it. The taste was mild sweetness and the flavour and smell were lovely with Shanzai or other spicy vegetables like ginger. This dish has very nice balance between traditional Taiwanese and international Taiwanese as modern and new Taiwanese.

The other dishes are also nice. The braised pork and bowl of noodle were based on traditional Chinese taste but show the novel Taiwanese taste and presentation.

sesami mousse
A staff in this restaurant made the sweets as chef patissiere. This mousse was very lovely. I can only feel the sweetness of black sesami. 
 
This restaurant will be nice restaurant for the Chinese food beginner.
