Tapa's Top is a top-notch bistro that
specializes in exotic dishes at realistic prices. Tapa's
provides a la carte dishes that go well with your choice
of beverage. A few signature dishes include the Blue
Papaya Seafood Plate (NT$165), Sour & Spicy Snails
with Lemongrass (NT$165), Vinegar Sunghi Mushrooms,
French-style Lamb Ribs with Mustard (NT$180), Vienna
Chicken Steak (NT$280), Matsuzaka Pork Chop (NT$240),

All are seasoned with many spices, herbs and special

an Italian red wine (750 ml, NT$1,200) or Toso, a smooth
white wine originated from Mendoza Sun Jose (750 ml,
NT$980) that captures the sweetness of passion fruit
and honey, with a slight golden color. It's a popular
choice among female guests. Heineken draft beer and
a selection of miniature liquors are also available
at Tapa's Top. Business lunches are served from Monday
to Thursday for NT$250. Weekend reservations are recommended.
