Relaxing Coffee Houses--KATZ Fusion Restaurant, Mezamashikohi-Urban Store No. 2, Aoki, DIY Bakery

Translated by Anna Yang

KATZ Fusion Restaurant

(04) 2326-7355
4, JingCheng 5th St, West Dist
Hours: 11:30 am-10 pm (last order by 8:30 pm)

This Jingming shopping district restaurant mainly sells American and Korean cuisine and draft beer. Its bright and spacious second floor, with simple black and white metal decor, offers bicycles and home decorations for sale. A la carte Korean dishes include Bibimbap and Korean bento boxes, with the top recommendation being Korean Sweet and Spicy Fried Chicken (half chicken NT$298), crunchy outside, tender inside and served with plenty of crispy potato chips. Besides Korean soju and imported beers (NT$150-260), the cooling Pineapple and Mango Ade (NT$150) goes great with any food item. This place is perfect for groups to enjoy big meals and, if you order Hot Chicken Stewed with Cheese and Potatoes or Stir-Fried Spicy Pork Chops with Green Onions (NT$260 each), you can have fun making an extra cod roe and seaweed flavored rice balls for something new. --By Chloe Huang
