R5 Bistro

Wanting to run a store that combines a restaurant, a café and an art gallery is the idea of CHUNG, HSIAO-TSE, the founder of R5 Bistro. He used to be a software engineer and always had a dream of opening his own store. After evaluation and consideration, he decided to quit his job and started his own restaurant, R5 Bistro, which will present his own dining aesthetics to every guest who came.

CHUNG, HSIAO-TSE who had working holiday experience during his school days once tasted a very pure American style burger that is without any unnecessary sauce and the meat is the hero of the dish. “It was simple but refreshing, and I was not moved by any similarly dish after returning to Taiwan,” he says with an unforgettable tone. And this made him make up his mind to run a new type of western-style restaurant.

CHUNG, HSIAO-TSE mentions proudly that all the meals in the restaurant use natural ingredients and without heavy seasoning like glutamate and chicken powder. This is not only healthy, but can also let the customers enjoy the purest food flavor. By using this way of cooking, he recreated the simplicity that he had tasted in the old days. “In addition, the drinks and desserts in the restaurant are also professional, like specialty coffee and homemade desserts,” adds CHUNG, HSIAO-TSE. Except for being very attentive to the quality of the western meals, he also wants to take good care of the quality of drinks and desserts. “I hope when people come here they will not only think that this is a restaurant but it is also a coffee shop and dessert shop." This is his ambition. He wants to pursue of the best in every details, and continues to learn from each other by exchanging views with fellow enthusiasts. All these can help him to accumulate experience and professionalism.
