If you're looking for something to do after a day's work, but don't want to join a crowd of people in the clubs or KTVs, then Mega Barbecue & Beer House is the hangout for you. This place has a comfortable atmosphere where you can relax with some simple snacks and beer. With only seven or eight tables in sight, Mega is a small but well-decorated bar. Even if you come here alone, you won't feel left out, as the bartenders and owner will be glad to chat.

A modern-looking city girl is spray-painted on the wall. French windows give patrons a glimpse of the street outside and make Mega seem more spacious. The menu might take you by surprise, with around 60 or 70 items that include grilled kebabs, seafood, poultry, stir-fry, and vegetable dishes. Owner Wu says, "Although my joint is small, I offer a great selection of food for my guests", explaining the irony of naming a small bar "Mega". Not only is the list extensive, but it is also delicious. All ingredients are purchased fresh every day and prepared on the spot by Wu.

If you like tangy vegetables, try his signature dish, Four Seasons Green Beans (NT$160). The garlic, pepper and chili create a multi-layered taste that goes great with beer. If you don't have much tolerance for spice, ask the staff to go easy on the chili. Garlic Cuttlefish Slices (NT$180), a salty and crispy combination of peanuts, garlic and onions is a dish that is well liked by many customers. Another must-try is the Grilled Pork Ribs.

The kitchen closes at 2 a.m., so if you are someone who likes to stay up late, then you will certainly have a great place to go for food. Alcohol selections include some local and imported beers like Heineken, Taiwan Beer, Smirnoff Ice, and Carlsberg.

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
