The majority of Yuma's Southwestern-style food is flame-grilled in the open kitchen and all the sauces are prepared in-house from scratch. Luckily for diners, owner Alan's (Alleycats founder) sharing concept makes this an excellent choice for meeting up with friends and family, as the menu is has extremely reasonable prices and, handily, features suggested menus for groups of up to eight for around NT$340/person. Plus, the portions are generous. There are also several vegetarian offerings with more in the pipeline. The decor is warm and welcoming and the fully bilingual staff is attentive and informed. --By Cat Thomas, translated by Ann Lee, photos courtesy of Yuma
