I booked this restaurant for a get-together dinner with my husband and friends during a short stay in Taichung. The industrial architecture is dimly lit and with both big tables cater for parties but also for intimate dining. The dishes are nicely decorated and; although mainly traditional Taiwanese, with modern infusion. The signature dish is three ways duck; roast, stirfried and the carcass to be made into soup. This dish has to be pre-ordered, I will definitely try this on my next visit!

The restaurant is located in a building of its own and the floor area is quite large. The décor is modern and trendy. The cuisine served is modern Taiwan food. The signature dish is the roast duck with 24 serving ingredients. Usually Beijing duck in other places is eaten with only sweet bean sauces, cucumber and spring onions. There are other dishes with fancy names and presentation. We ordered a sour duck soup, soft bone spareribs, and a vegi dish. The food is above average only. The place was very quiet for lunch. We think it is a restaurant one can visit in Taichung if he has the time, but there are certainly better restaurants in the city.

We planned to sample their Asian Fusion style but went for the duck when there was a cancellation of a Peking Duck order. Normally requires reserving 3 days ahead.

Good luck for us. It has become a favorite version, competitive and different than our previous #1 at the Peking Garden in Hong Kong.

The bird was superbly made and presented. The tray of tidbits to eat with the duck slices ranged from hot kimchi to pressed sashimi fish eggs to fresh raspberries through dark chocolate. The traditional sliced cucumber fingers were provided of course. Sauces had a similar broad range including wasabi, balsamic vinaigrette and cherry among others. Naturally the traditional sweet soy paste was included.

The slicer separated the finest meat onto a separate plate with garnishes. The waitress's description of "filet mignon" was fair.

We look forward to return visits.

Note no English menu or pictures. We are having the menu translated...

Wein is not your typical Chinese/Taiwanese food restaurant. It seems the chef is regularly updating the offerings and putting different twists on traditional fare. I am not sure a group of Westeners would do well trying to order a meal at Wein, but fortunately friends in Taiwan organize a dinner which includes me.
