8utter Cafe

Situated on the Solas Hotel at Liyu Road Puli Township, Nantou County is beautiful reflection on the lake water teaming with life - fish, turtles, ducks, etc.
We would like to eat someplace nice and perhaps get good food  and have a good dinner before going home. It is the coffee restaurant offers a mix culinary food has been tailored for a Western palate. We went through 8utter coffee, the restaurant has a very rustic and country feel, yet it’s still contemporary and somewhat you may feel romantic I guess.
Here’s what we found out. There were set menu include soup, salad, main course, drinks and no desserts. On the table: We started off with this mushroon soup a slightly creamy exposition of mushroom flavor, it was good thou!
Next came the salads and anti-pasto: Mix vegetables drizzled in creamy blueberry dressing.
Caesar salad with smoked chicken
Grilled abalone mushroom.
For the main course: I ordered the roasted barbecue pork ribs serve with boiled vegetables and rice, flavor in Taiwan aboriginal rice dumplings or tongzhi. I was greatly disappointed, the ribs did not taste tender. 
Provencal roasted lamb chops with rosemary sauce for my daughter. It was very hard and chewy as it seemed it had been  in the fridge for many years.
Spaghetti carbonara
Linguine pesto with toasted pine nuts. 
Last but not least we have a variety of drinks and I always go for hot fruit tea it was delicious but a little bit too sweet for me. Overall, nothing remarkable about the food but the salad, mushroom soup and pasta was ok. The rest of the main course it was disaster if you know how to cook your own meat dishes.
