Run by a group of clothing designers, Italian bistro PS Tapas is a new addition to Taipei's string of very popular Spanish-style bars. A huge bar lamp appears when you walk into this place, which has a low-lit open kitchen and relaxing atmosphere perfect for dining with friends, lounging around on the sofas, or enjoying fresh air at the outdoor patio area. Order a glass of sangria or Creme de Menthe and invite your friends to play a game of "Play Tower" (NT$1,500); visiting PS Tapas is just like chilling at home, with plenty of additional great food and company. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. Made with grilled cheese, anchovies, tomatoes, chicken liver, roast peppers, poached eggs and salami, there's two of each ingredient in this dish. The Crostini Platter (8 pieces, NT$350) is served in generous portions, while a smaller-portion dish is ideal for one person (NT$220).
B. Spanish Platter Deluxe (NT$320) comes with 12 pieces of French toast, three dipping sauces, cheese, salami and marinated olives. A smaller, similar dish is NT$230.
C. The BBQ Quail (NT$210) is seasoned with red wine and bay leaves; a squeeze of lemon juice provides a tantalizing finish. The outer skin is crispy while the inside features the meat's juicy texture.
