This popular restaurant, selling all-American diner-style fare, has opened its third branch west of the No. 1 Freeway, making it ideal for folks in the Science Park-Tunghai University area. Besides burgers, the long menu includes steaks, Philly Cheese Steaks, 15 thick American-style milkshakes, and five all-day American-style brunch sets (NT$170-360). --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
This attractive branch is in a renovated, old home with a little yard and outside seating. The two-floor interior is inviting, warm and homey-feeling with seating for about 80.
B. Newer best-selling entrees include the pictured braised, deep-fried Pork Knuckle (NT$420), served with sauerkraut, veggies and mashed potatoes, plus the 30-centimeter Giant Hot Dog (NT$380), actually five smoked sausages end-to-end in a bun, generously topped with chili and cheese and served with fries.
