My first official lunch (excluding homemade food) in Taiwan,
Wait a second, I'm suppose to eat something like stinky tofu, spicy hot pot instead of western food right?
Well, I was in the mood of trying out new places instead of searching for local dishes,
But don't be surprised, Taiwan does have lots of decent western restaurants, and L'idiot was one of them.
Some decor inside the restaurant-
I didn't get a chance to walk around and take nice pictures,
First I was kinda..shy...ok call me chicken,
And it was around lunch hour, too many customers there for me to scoop around.
The main decor is this mosaic thing, or mosaic whale,
This picture only shows a small portion of the whale, it actually circles all the way to the back-
Let's talk about food,
Start out with bread and garlic flavored butter-
Complimentary appetizer, homemade cheese on a crouton, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and honey-
I'm trying my best here to describe the dishes since I forgot to take a picture of the menu.
The soup was very creamy, and the crunchy bacon bits on the top adds more texture to it.
Curry chicken satay with cous cous and salad-
Seared chicken breast stuffed with...., some kind of creamy ground meat, very good.
Comes with tomato and bell pepper cubes on the bottom.
The crunchy and salty skin was the highlight of this dish-
Peach parfait with toasted sesame cookie sheet-
I put them in my purse and hours after...lollipop turned sugar crumbs..
I like this place,
The price was reasonable,
Well, the lunch sets are ranging from $12 to $22 U.S. Dollars,
But remember the place is in Taiwan, so $12 for a meal is not THAT cheap, and not THAT expensive of course.
L'idiot was spacious, and the service was great,
I heard they also serve brunches during weekends,
Should be a good choice for brunch in Taipei.
