Alchemy really surprised us! It is located near the opera and at first sight, it seems like a nice little- very casual cafe. Yet it is some of the best food we have tasted in quite awhile. We had the spinach salad for starters- with giant slices of parmesan- not graded as in most places. There is a limited menu of European cuisine with the dishes ranging from 50-80-Hr for full portions. There are half portions available for all dishes at about 60% of the full price—and they are immense!
