Chamonix Teppanyaki (Taipei)
Taiwan’s Wowprime Group is just killing it with all their awesome restaurants. Chamonix is their attempt to tackle deluxe teppanyaki, and it’s a highly successful one with 15 stores across the country. We went to the store in Banqiao in New Taipei City, which is fitted beautifully with comfortable seats around the teppanyaki hotplate, where chefs make your meals on the spot. For dessert, there is a separate lounge section, which is also very comfortable.
Chamonix is considered little on the dearer end at NT$980 per person, plus 10% service charge, but it’s about right for high quality teppanyaki. In any case, what you get is, in my opinion, is well worth it.
The set courses come with a seasonal appetizer, bread, soup, salad, lemon sorbet, a main course, a fried rice, a dessert and beverage. Apart from the appetizer, bread, sorbet and sakura shrimp fried rice, there are several options to choose from for all other courses, and don’t forget the menu also changes regularly. The current full range of English menu options can be found here.
This is what we had.
In all, it was a very satisfying meal that was very Wowprime, which means great variety, excellent average quality and service, and different to the type of food you would get at other teppanyaki places. Highly recommended.
