Like its name suggests, this delicate bistro offers a good selection of comfort food. The owners' creativity can be seen in everything from the ceiling lamps, which are made from pieces of stoves, to the wooden tables, which are made from wine barrels. Soul Food focuses mainly on French and Italian-style family cuisine. To keep things a little heal thier for you, chefs use plenty of imported olive oil when cooking up their tasty dishes and salad dressings. --By Eunice Huang, translated by Ann Lee

A. Conohiglie Rigate with Assorted Seafood (NT$320) is a simple but flavorful pasta dish; its rich and smooth sauce is fully absorbed into the noodles and is decked out with half-a-dozen seafood ingredients. Another dish, the Stir-Fried Mussels with Onion and Garlic (NT$300), is one of the most-ordered appetizers on the menu.

B. Originating from southwestern France, the Confit de Conard (NT$420) takes a lot of time to make. First, chefs smear sea salt on the duck meat and let it sit overnight. Then the meat is roasted with garlic, rosemary and thyme.

C. Soul Food is also an artistic venue, displaying local artists' work and encouraging people to play the grand piano.
