In the bustling area of east Taipei, a barrage of restaurants
thrives on Alley 216 off Zhong-Xiao East Road. But "Q-Bar"
stands out above all others. What makes it so unique?
Q-Bar " has been around for five years, but it continues
to hold interest. Every time I pass by, I see lots of customers
inside. It's good luck for them, and for Randall, the owner,
who cooks and manages the place. He also designed the interiors
and outside patio all by himself. When the weather is nice,
this cozy courtyard is an unforgettable spot for people who
know the best. Randall has invested all his energy into the
restaurant. And it has paid off.
the food? Can' t wait to try some! The prices are reasonable
and the quality is excellent, that's for sure. Randall lived
in L.A. for several years, so he knows how to make real American
food. Overwhelmed with all the delicious choices, I asked
Randall for his advice.
Chicken Wings (NT$220) is the most popular starter, but
the latest addition to the menu is Vege Bruchetta (NT$180),
cooked with olive oil, garlic and balsamic vinegar is
great. DISH'S NAME (NT$220), with an original flavor,
comes with avocado, sour cream and salsa cream. It tastes
fabulous! But don't forget the Pasta (NT$280~NT$300) or
Sandwiches (about NT$200).
(NT$180~NT$250), you should try QK (Randall' s Special¡Xraspberry
and gin) (NT$200 ); or Sangria (NT$250), a chilled mix of
red wine and fresh fruits. Randall explains that this drink
is common with meals in Latin American countries.
the name? You'll have to ask Randall that question when
you visit Q-Bar.
