御茶園 Tea Lounge

[CLOSED]
Tea Lounge is located right next to Ding Tai Feng (鼎泰豐). It was originally famous for its tea, but now it also offers excellent set meals. I tried all of the meals and they were all equally good.

This is a greatspot for family lunch/dinner. However, there are no vegeterian meals offered. So be aware of that.

The service quality at Tea Lounge is acceptable.There is a 10% service fee charged along with your orders. Quite typical for a restaurant in Taipei.




1) 現泡東方美人私房牛肉麵 (Boneless Beef Ribs Noodles)
This is a healthier, modernized version of a bowl of traditional beef noodles. Since the Tea Lounge is a tea restaurant, Oriental Beauty Tea plays a major role in the soup.The soup tastes like a light mixture of tea and beef; not greasy at all. On the other hand, the noodles are thin and green, also made from tea ingredients. Comparing to the sizes of most beef noodles out there, the size of this one is small. It took me about two to three minutes to finish everything. Highly recommended to healthy eaters/girls on diet/older folks.


The soup is light and nongreasy. Very special and worth a try.

The bowl looks huge but you won't get enough out of it!

2) 京都茶燒鰻魚飯三吃 (Kyoto-styled Eel Rice)
This dish could be eaten in three different ways:
1) Eel+egg+rice

2) Eel+seaweed+wasabi+sesame+egg+rice

3) Tea added into the bowl


Personally I love tea with rice the best. The tea balances out the saucy taste of eel, thus makes the meal extremely delightful. The size of this meal is quite satisfying, especially the huge amount of rice. Recommended to everyone. Defnitely give it a try!

3) 名古屋極黑味增豬排飯 (Nagoya-styled pork chop rice)
I tried this for the very first time today and I was quite surprised at how great it was in terms of size and quality. The size of this meal is HUGE for it has TWO LAYERS of pork chop. The outside layer of the pork chop is quite thin, yet it doesn't take away the crispiness. Way to go! The miso sauce provided on the side complements the whole meal by adding flavor to the pork chop. Recommended to guys with huge appetites.

Now I know what the word undeniable means

Meat and lettuce balanced out. Wheeee!

EHH WHAT?! THERE'S A SECOND LAYER OF PORK CHOP?!?!?!

My stomach was already full by the time I got down to the second layer.
Next time I am definitely sharing with a friend.
