Taipei Bistro 》訂位困難的 草頭西 餐酒館值得再訪

Last Updated on 2021-04-24 by Foodelicious

草頭西餐酒館中正紀念堂站美食, 多數饕客都知道草頭西訂位困難,草頭西菜單與酒單也不定期更換, 依舊是我的台北餐酒館推薦之一.
Catouxi Bistro is one of the CKS Memorial Hall restaurants. It is difficult to reserve seats at the restaurant. Catouxi menu and alcohol menu sometimes would change. But, it is still one of the Taipei Bistro Recommendation.

草頭西訂位與低消

Catouxi Bistro Reservation and Minimum Charge

草頭西店面位於和平西路二段, 位於 “中正紀念堂捷運站”2號出口 與“古亭站” 8 號出口大約都是15 分鐘. 低調店面很容易錯過, 一走進餐廳客滿不驚訝, 櫃檯旁的一整排高腳椅與 “Parko Parco 餐酒館 “相似, 窗邊也有兩人座位. 草頭西是預約制, 並不是像自學美食家 Liz 提到的下午三點可以直接走進來用餐, 訂位規則以他們的 Facebook 公告為主 ( https://www.facebook.com/catouxi2020 ) , 每個月的25號早上09:00 開放「下下」一個月整月份的Facebook 私訊預約, 相信我, 訂位很快就會滿. 草頭西低消為 NTD $500/人, 很簡單就可以達標.
Catouxi Bistro is located at 2nd section of Heping West Road. It is about 15 minutes walking from CKS Memorial Hall Exit 2 and Guting MRT station Exit 8. The high chairs seating area by the counter is similar with “Parko Parco”. There are also two-people seating area. Catouxi Bistro is reservation-only. The reservation policy is stated at their facebook fan page ( https://www.facebook.com/catouxi2020 ). 25th of every month would allow the customers to reserve via Facebook private message. And the dining time would be at「Next Next 」month. The minimum charge is NTD $500/person. Trust me, it is easy to achieve.

草頭西菜單, 開瓶費, 停車

Catouxi Bistro Menu, Corkage Fee and Parking

我個人建議搭大眾運輸, 因為草頭西就是要喝酒搭配菜. 我還是找到停車場地圖 (圖一) , 草頭西開瓶費是NTD $1000/瓶, 費用比一般台北餐廳高, 主要原因是草頭西自己有賣單杯紅白酒與精釀啤酒. 入座後, 身後的小黑板有當日菜餚名稱與價格 (圖二)
I would suggest to take public transportation since you might drink wine pairing with the foods. But, I still find the parking lot map for you (Pic 1). The corkage fee is NTD $1000/bottle. The fee is higher than most bistros. The main reason would be that Catouxi Bistro sells alcohols as well. The black board menu is being the seats (Pic 2).

 

草頭西 – 菜餚

Catouxi Bistro -Dish

金殼蝦, 豬背脂, 煙燻葡萄

Grape Shrimp, Lardo, Smoked Grape
Price: NTD $420
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍👍

我這次到草頭西是專攻海鮮, 這一道在小黑板是在 “當日海鮮: 時價“, 與其中一位 Chef 聊得知現流海鮮來自濱江或合作漁船, 金殼蝦就是葡萄蝦, 是少數可以做成頂級日本刺身的蝦類, 另外一項少見的食材是豬背脂, 在義大利餐廳有吃過類似的鹽醃豬背脂, 金殼蝦的蝦肉鮮甜,豬背脂滑嫩與油脂更突顯出蝦的爽口程度高, 煙燻葡萄更增加另一層果香風味, 美味程度比預期地高, NTD $420 很值得, 我個人很推薦, 因為是現流海鮮, 下一次可能就吃不到這道了.
This time, I focus on Catouxi Bistro’s seafood dish. This dish is under the category of “Daily Seafood: Based on its present price”. One of the chefs mentioned that their fresh seafood is from Binjiang Market or the cooperated fish boats. The grape shrimp is one of a few shrimps that can be made with top level Japanese nigiri. The other rare ingredients would be the lard. In Italian restaurant, the ingredient is called Lardo di Colonnata. The shrimp tastes fresh and sweet. The smooth fats from the lard enhanced the seafood flavor. The smoked grapes brings the refresh fruity flavor to the tastebuds. The delicious level is higher thane expected. NTD $420 is definitely worth it. I would definitely recommend it.

尖梭魚, 鯷魚麵包粉, 沙拉

Great Barracuda, Anchovy Bread Crumbs, Salad
Price: NTD $560
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍👍

這道也是當日海鮮, 當我聽到尖梭魚, 我第一個反應是刺應該會很多, 之後 Chef 回覆魚刺已挑掉, 而且是將尖梭魚做成捲型. 端上桌時, 外型類似 “Pasti”的烤白帶魚捲煙燻起司, 草頭西主廚將魚其串起來以免脫落. 尖梭魚就跟 “千壽鰻魚飯” 一樣刺都被細心地挑掉, 適量鹹度裡也是可以感受到魚肉的肥美, 灑在上方的鯷魚麵包粉不僅增加鹽漬海鮮風味, 更增加口感, 建議搭酒, 一旁搭配的沙拉則是讓味蕾清爽. 我個人很推薦這一道, 只是下ㄧ次要見到類似菜餚就要靠緣份.
This dish is also under daily seafood category. When I heard of Great Barracuda, my first response would be “There are gonna be lots of fish bones, aint it?”. Chef explained that the fish is without bones and make into roll shape. The appearance is similar with “Pasti” fish roll. As the chef explain, the fish is perfectly boneless, just like “Senju Taipei” eel rice. The salty level is medium-high. But, you can still tastes the delicious seafood flavor from the fish. The anchovy crumbs brings crispy texture and enhances more seafood flavor. I would suggest to pair with the wines or beers. I would also recommend this dish as well.

碳烤中卷, 芥蘭花, 青檸辣椒

Grilled Squid, Chinese Kale, Lemon Green Pepper
Price: NTD $420
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍

吃完現流海鮮項目, 就點小黑板上的這道海鮮. 碳烤中卷份量適量, 酸香微辣青檸辣椒風味注入東南亞風格在這道菜餚. Chef 有細心地將芥蘭花的粗纖維挑掉, 整體吃起來非常脆, 中卷口感也不會過硬. 我個人也覺得不錯吃.
This dish is on the blackboard. The grilled squid quantity is fair amount. The acidity and sour flavor is from the lemon green pepper sauce. The overall flavor is toward South Eastern Asian cuisine. The Chinese Kale is quite refresh instead of bitterness. The dish tastes is quite good.

 

草頭西 – 甜點

Catouxi Bistro -Dessert

草莓奶酪

Strawberry Panna Cotta
Price: NTD $200
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍

我完全沒想到草頭西會自己做甜點, 草頭西的綿密奶酪搭配新鮮草莓很美味, 我其實很少在台北餐酒館吃到好吃美味且自己作的甜點, 目前我滿意的餐酒館甜點只有 “Bottless 非瓶“ 與 ”Allez Bistro” , 草頭西是第三個. 下次再訪我應該會再點其他甜點.
I didn’t expect Catouxi Bistro makes their own dessert. Their creamy Panna Cotta pairs great with the fresh strawberry. I rarely eat delicious dessert at Taipei Bistro. Only “Bottless Bistro” and “Allez Bistro” make quite good dessert.  Now,  Catouxi Bistro is the third one. Next time at my visit, I would order other desserts.

草頭西 – 單杯葡萄酒

Catouxi Bistro – Single Glass Wine

Morando Silvio Naturalmente Bianco

Single Glass Wine: NTD $280
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍

這款是來自北義的白酒, 混釀葡萄有 Chardonnay, Favorite , 和 Cortese. 這款自然酒不過濾, 但是聞起來並沒有濃烈二氧化硫味道, 而是有些許水梨果香, 適量酸度讓這款酒適合搭配我點的海鮮. 這款酒 “Pure Wine 璞斟酒窖”有販售.
The unfiltered wine is from Northern Italia. The grapes include Chardonnay, Favorite and Cortese. It doesn’t smell strong SO2. It has small amount of pear flavor. The medium acidity pairs great with my seafood dish. This wine is also sold at “Pure Wine”.

Domaine Gardies On s’en Fish

Single Glass Wine: NTD $280
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍👍

這款是來自法國知名區域 Languedoc-Roussilon 的紅酒, 混釀葡萄是我不熟悉的 Cinsault 與 Carignan, 草莓與櫻桃風味多過於黑莓風味, 是我喜歡的酒款風味類型, 可以搭配海鮮並不會違和.
This red wine is from Languedoc-Roussilon, France. The grapes include Cinsault and Carignan. The strawberry and cherry flavors are stronger than the black berry flavors. It is my favorite wine type. This red wine can pair well with the seafood.

 

Els Vinyerons vins Naturals Saltamarti

Single Glass Wine: NTD $280
Foodelicious 美味程度: 👍👍👍

這款西班牙混釀葡萄有 Tempranillo , 與 Grenache. 黑醋栗與李子風味偏多,有比較少見的礦石味, 我個人是比較喜歡上一支 Domaine Gardies On s’en Fish.
This Spanish wine include Tempranillo and Grenache. The plum and black berry flavor is quite strong. It also has fair amount of mineral flavor. I would prefer the previous wine – Domaine Gardies On s’en Fish.

結論 Conclusion

草頭西餐酒館的兩位廚師都在開放式廚房工作, 講述菜餚與酒款的時候非常專業, 現流海鮮對我來說是可遇不可求, 我會建議至少要點一款現流海鮮. 草頭西餐酒館甜點也在水準之上, 而且美味程度完全 match 價格. 我會建議搭配酒, 要不然你會覺得全部的菜餚偏鹹. 我個人很推薦這家餐酒館.
Two Catouxi Bistro chefs work at the open kitchen. They explain the dishes and the wines in a professional level. The daily seafood category is quite special. I would suggest to order at least one daily seafood dish. Their dessert is quite yummy too. The delicious level matches its price. I would suggest to pair with wines. Or else, you might consider all the dishes are salty in Taiwanese’s taste. I would definitely recommend this bistro.
