Ottawa, Canada native Ebon Carmichael has opened this relaxing gastropub, focusing on brunch, set meals, burgers, fish and chips, and bar food, all made from scratch with locally-sourced ingredients. Beverages include mixed drinks and reasonably-priced big bottles of beer (NT$75 Taiwan Beer, NT$100 Heineken). Carmichael's is scheduled to fully open for business in the second or third week of July. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angela Cheng
