Fine dining in Kao?

Postby gemcxx » 17 Nov 2009, 17:44

Hey All,

I want to take my gf out for a special dinner. I don't have a budget but I am thinking of spending between 1,500 - 3,000 NT each.

Where would you reccommend in Koa?

I tried searching the forums but had no luck. I also tried to google 'fine dining' but couldnt find anything.

I open to suggestions for hotel restaraunts to small boutique places. Even if you haven't been but have heard of a place let me know.

Thx. Look forward to your replies.

I've heard good things about the Ambassador Hotel. I've only ever been up tp the sky lounge but it had very nice views and would make for a nice pre-dinner cocktail venue.

I like to tell mine that we're going to McDonalds and surprise her with Mos Burger.

Le maison, le petie chateau, Pasadena, Goulish, Amy's California (the chef is a good friend and has worked in some great places in Chicago, most notably Charlie Trotters).
The ability to make a good steak frites or sole meuniere or cassoulet is a skill that any reasonably coordinated person with good heart and an average work ethic can accomplish. Granted, the ability to prepare these dishes a hundred times a night, at high speed, in coordination with twenty or so other tasks—while listening to Mexican rap and nursing a savage hangover—is not something everyone should attempt. That requires a special breed.

There's a place on the seafront, out past the university. Never been, but it sure sounds pretty damn nice. The guy has posted here before.

I was there Saturday night actually. It is a cool place, they have an outside deck right on the shore. You can watch the sunset and listen to the waves while you eat your food. I wouldn't call it fine dining though. The clientele seemed to be mostly college girls from the university. Its called "Escape 41" The address is 41-2 CaiShan, Gushan District, Kaohsiung. Phone is 886-7-5250058.

If you know that coffee shop on the main road where they make the big pot of coffee with the chinese characters in the foam, its down the side street behind there on the shoreline.

Oh, and not that it matters but they have some FINE waitresses there.
