       While most new pubs try to take on an avant-garde image, this restaurant pub, formerly a "bubble tea" shop, takes an opposite, traditional folk approach with old-fashioned decor. Besides the blackened sign outside, the most distinguished feature is the two large red lanterns with the warm-looking words "Fire Grill" that will make you want a closer look. The place is filled with vintage decorations: antique kitchen utensils, treasure chests and bamboo dust pans. Even grandma's stone stove is still used for grilling. The menu offers Lamb Chops (NT$140), Ribeye Steak (NT$120), Chicken Kabob (NT$100 for 5), vegetables, mushrooms, bell peppers and seafood--all reasonably priced. The above prices are for before 9 p.m. During pub hours after 9 p.m. there is a $200 minimum charge per person and dish prices are slightly higher. Late hours are a good time for enjoying alcoholic beverages like the deep-black Black Special Cocktail (NT$200), which goes perfectly with the relaxing jazz or passionate modern music. Black Pub is located very near the intersection of Gung Yi and Tatun roads. --By Uvia Chang, Translated by Yvonne Chen
