Safe sex might not seem like a normal theme for a dining establishment, but that is exactly what Banana Restaurant is about. Condoms--glass, neon-lit and otherwise--decorate the interior and guests are welcome to help themselves to free prophylactics. In fact, Banana is the first restaurant to officially partner with Taiwan's Center of Disease Control for safe sex, anti-AIDS promotions. The establishment itself is a classy-looking place with lots of dark wood decor. The menu features a variety of Western dishes including seafood pasta (NT$220), lamb chops (NT$480), and New Zealand sirloin (NT$380). Of note are two special set meals whose names are Chinese poetic references to the male and female reproductive organs and--the management claims--supposed to boost libidos. Dining hours are 11:30 am to 2 pm and 5 pm to 8:30 pm. There are also many coffees, teas, juices and alcoholic beverages. From 9 pm to 2 am, a piano features music and--not surprisingly--condom jokes and question-and-answer contests. Banana is located opposite La Cite fashion outlet mall.
