Our restaurant focuses on traditional Mediterranean cuisine, which is very different from mainstream contemporary restaurants. We attach great importance to the ingredients' flavor without excessive cooking. Based on legendary European ingredients, we focus on the ingredient's original flavor.
We combine the most delicious local ingredients of the season with simple Mediterranean cooking techniques to present the European delicacies in our memories in every dish.
We hope every friend can travel around the Mediterranean on the dining table and experience it through the taste.
True Mediterranean culture.
Mediterranean cuisine is delicious and very beneficial to the human body.
In 2013, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) listed Mediterranean food culture as an "intangible cultural heritage of mankind".
This shows the importance of Mediterranean food culture to humanity.
Mediterranean cuisine reflects the culinary traditions of the Mediterranean region.
Central to its palate are olive oil, fresh local vegetables, grains, fruits, spices, seafood, meats, and dairy products like cheese and yogurt. Employing minimalistic cooking techniques brings out each ingredient's genuine flavor, yielding a spectrum of deliciousness.
This cuisine demands quality ingredients and mastery in preparation because its authenticity doesn't allow for masking any inherent shortcomings with excessive techniques.
Our restaurant doesn't merely use many European-imported ingredients but rather an array of "Europe's Finest Ingredients."
Such as the diamond of the truffle world,
Italy's ALBA winter white truffle, Russia's royal caviar,
the Spanish national treasure aged 60-month Iberian ham,
Spanish Iberian pork chops, and Parmigiano Reggiano,
the king of cheeses, which requires 600 liters of milk to produce just one wheel and is aged for 70 months.
Additionally, we have steaks matured for over 365 days,
the 100-year aged DOP Italian national treasure vinegar Balsamico,
the king of Italian hams Prosciutto di Parma,
and numerous DOP top-tier legendary ingredients imported from Europe.
Not to mention Taiwan's probiotic black-haired pig,
complemented by many local Taiwanese organic gourmet ingredients.
Every member of our restaurant loves traditional culture and traditional Mediterranean cuisine. For us, cooking is not only an expression of taste;
This is the inheritance of conventional cooking culture.
We hope everyone who steps into Alessandro Mediterranean Cuisine can truly immerse themselves in the rich culture of Mediterranean cuisine.
