Bellagio Cafe

Hip and casual Taiwanese food on Hongqiao side of town. It is a chain with a handful of Chinese locations, but not in Taiwan. The crowd is a bit on the younger side, to match the white, minimalist interior and the pixie waitresses (all of them have a cute boy cut, apparently it's a requirement).

Food was great. I wasn't super hungry but you can have a light meal or full on dinner. The steamed whole fish was amazing, and I liked the chicken with garlic and ginger oil. The Taiwanese omelette was fluffy and I liked the crunch of the turnip. We also had some sort of greens in a broth with preserved egg, which was interesting.

They have an extensive dessert and drinks menu, and the desserts at the other tables were monstrous. Definitely worth giving a try.

I didn't realize that Bellagio Cafe was a sister to La Paleta. You can find info on both at
