[ 台北陽明山 ] 屋頂 Dining on the Stars at The Top

The moon above the roof and the stars on the ground.

Our team won some cash at our year end party with our performance so we were off to enjoy that with a dinner on a weekday at “The Top” (屋頂上餐廳) on Mt. Yangmingshan (陽明山) just right below the Lover’s Hill (情人坡) close to the Chinese Culture University (文化大學).  The whole restaurant has the Balinese or southeast Asia feel. It’s exotic and relaxing. There are many restaurants like this (maybe different styles) at this part of the Mt. Yangmingshan. Last time I went to Zest 35 with a friend. That…


…..also has a very nice view (not as high in terms of location as this but good in its own way). We had 2 tables in a tent and ordered for food and drinks costing us almost 5,000 TWD for 8 people (just 1 table). There’s a minimum $ you have to spend for particular areas in the restaurant. The VIP area with the best and highest view requires you to spend 5,000 TWD +. The next one down is 3,000 TWD. I’m sure there should be tables that do not have a min. charge as high as that. Perhaps the table is much smaller. :p

 


Lamps at the entrance of the restaurant.

View of our tents behind these tables. We had to be careful where we were walking because it was like one huge pond and we have to walk on the rocks or else we’d get our shoes wet! It’s a bit difficult at night to see where you are walking, esp. when that place isn’t particularly bright. So they got staff constantly standing around to remind people to look at what they’re walking on.


There was a frog swimming in the “ponds” around where we were. It was swimming!!

  
1. Female w.c. door sign. 2. The glowing stairs that link the top tier (VIP area) to the second and lower decks. 3. The 3rd tier where there were these soft and comfy looking seats.

  
More views of the restaurant.


Another view of stairs leading from the huge bean bags to our tents.


A typical table in a tent – the more proper seating position for eating.

 In front of where we were sitting were these huge soft bean bags with awesome night view of Taipei City.

Viewing outside from our “tent” on the second tier. We had a heater fan inside the tent so we didn’t have to expose ourselves to the wind and whatever that comes up on the mountain.

 

One of our favourite dish of the day! Fried yam (sweet patato) with a sweet coating that has passion fruit flavour. It’s suppose to be a dish called 拔絲地瓜 (but without the “拔絲” part).

Believe it or not, this was the view from outside of the w.c. One of the walls of the washroom on our “floor” was one big huge piece of transparent glass!! But outside of it is prertty much rock and trees so it’d be difficult for people to get around it look inside from there… Phew~!

 


Outside of the VIP area is a pretty nice area where you can just sit there and take in the view seen in the beginning of the post.

 

Walking down to the second “level” of tables, etc. from the VIP area.
