I’ve had some pretty good food in my time but rarely do my exploits extend to multi-course fine dining. Whilst I was in Taiwan I had the pleasure of experiencing some excellent haute cuisine courtesy of some very generous friends. One place in particular which stood out was Louis XIV, located in Taipei’s Da-an district, which serves exceptional French provencal cuisine. Here are some pics to whet your appetite.
The Appetizer – I have no idea what you call this creation but it was beautifully presented and a tasty little morsel to kick things off.
The Starter – fresh chilled salad leaves with tomato and lardons.
Main Course – US prime steak with yellow peppers and a balsamic reduction sauce. Mouth-wateringly tender.
Dessert – Raspberry Sorbet and Almond Soufflé. Sweet perfection.
Overall a very special dining experience which was complimented by the exceptional service of the sommelier, Claire Chiang, who made excellent recommendations. Probably not for anyone on a tight budget but if you’re here that’s probably not your mind anyway.
