Shinyeh 欣葉, recommended by the hotel concierge when we asked where should we head for meal, be it lunch or dinner at Taipei 101. Of course looking at Retna, the concierge immediately recommended the Italian cuisine. Of which, Retna informed the concierge with a smile on her face, “I love Chinese food, I am married to one,”
So the team then suggested Shinyeh, which when I researched online, found that many have claimed it is over hyped and the food was over rated blah blah.
Anyway, I remember seeing Shinyeh at Sentosa Singapore when we were there for the Universal Studio last year. So, we went with Shinyeh.
The patrons of Shinyeh has 2 options to order the meal there. Set meal or the ala carte. Also please note that there is minimum spending to dine at this restaurant. According to the concierge, to get the window seats, the charge is slightly higher, but I supposed the concierge has done all the negotiations for us, we just went in, ordered the meals we wanted, and voila. Enjoy the food, the view as well as the company of each other.
We ordered a pot of gracious health tea, which is a mixed of red dates, jasmine tea leaf and others. The mix was done by the team, not those comes in pre-packed. So, kind of nice.
The whole meal took us about 1.5 hours to complete. So we took a slightly longer lunch break from the meetings next door for this.
The experience to dine here is definitely better than what we got at KL Tower, the service as well as the food, no doubt.
