Respond to Review of Yangming Spring - Yangming Shan
Review: My partner and I had dinner here on our last day in town. From the moment we went in, we knew we were in for a special treat. For dinner they only serve set meals. There were two sets to choose from (TWD660/880), each of which contained various course choices. Food was largely lacto-ovo vegetarian with a couple vegan or veganizable items. Everything was wonderful and beautifully presented. It was innovative and featured a lot of interesting ingredients. The tofu bite in the appetizer plate had the most amazing and creamiest mouthfeel. The mushroom steak in the main course was the thickest slice of mushroom I'd ever seen. It was perfectly flavored and had a pleasantly meaty texture. We also especially enjoyed the piquant vinegar drinks that they served after the main courses. They were meant for cleaning the palates before desserts and just did the job. Ordering was a breeze as everything was well labeled as to whether it had eggs, dairy or was vegan. The staff was professional, attentive and very cordial. Knowing that it was our first time there and that I was vegan, our waitress explained the menu and dishes to us in great detail while making recommendations and checking with the kitchen several times to make sure what I could or could not eat. The setting was elegant, modern and trendy but intimate and kind of zen at the same time. Our whole meal was quite an experience to remember. True, it can get a little pricey particularly for dinner, but believe me it will be well worth every cent.
