Toros: Steak, Taiwan-Style!

January 16, 2010 in Food, Taiwan, Travel by pacejmiller

Restaurant: Toros
Food: Steak and Western Cuisine
Prices: Set meals are around TWD 2000 per head
Location: Level 13, FE21 Department Store, Banquiao

On New Years Eve in Taipei, we visited a department store called FE21 in Banquiao (blue line on the MRT).

And for New Years Eve dinner, we went to a restaurant on level 13 called Toros.

Toros prides itself on being a high quality steak restaurant.  Taiwanese people seem to like their meats.  All the meat at Toros is supposedly CAB certified.  I have no idea what that means, though I get the feeling in Taiwan that if something is certified by some foreign agency (especially one using acronyms), the masses invariably trust it.

Anyway, Toros clearly considers itself a high class venue – with nice silvery cutlery, lush fittings and well-dressed waiters.  The menus also have English on them.  The prices are pretty dear by Taiwanese standards.

We went with one of their many set dinners – in our set you get bread (with dips and spreads), soup, salad, a massive steak main (to share) and dessert.

Check out some pics below!
