KAFNU restaurant has re-opened this month in Taipei, with a new chef in charge and a whole new menu full of delicious dishes to try. As regular visitors at Kafnu (We previously  feature them in an article and launch our N5 River magazine in there!) we couldn’t wait to go meet the new chef and discover more about his work at the restaurant.
