Visited Taipei again with my parents and we enjoyed the local food very much. Also visit the observation deck of Taipei 101 Building (the tallest building in the world). Impressed by the lift that took us from 5th floor to 89th floor in just 37 Secs. You can also see the gaint damper to reduce swing induced by the strong wind.

Also visited the Museum that housed the treasures taken from the Forbidden City of Beijing, the museum has been revamped and is very nice.

Dominic Review:
Friends from Taipei brought us to this place, excellent choice. It is cheaper to have lunch here than dinner, but then very hard to get a table in the evening. Everything is made in front of you at your own table. All ingredients are of top quality and are supposed to be very healthy also. They use a special type of rock salt.

Irene Review:
Interesting mix of ingredients. very fresh and delicious! The drink of chinese medicine is a bit rare. Comfortable seating both upstairs and downstairs.

We went to Taipei for a friend's wedding. This turned out to be an eating trip where we enjoyed almost non-stop delicious food: healthy cooking with rock salt, wedding banquet, Japanese cuisine in Jin Shan (after having hot spring), excellent vegetarian meal and also beef noodle.

Hot spring in Jin Shan offers excellent mountain view and very good faciliites.
