--By Julia Koprak Translated by Jean Huang

Out of the Ordinary. Occupying the Olfactory. Obtaining the Orgasmic. Three things that come to my mind when I think of the O in Bistro O. As the friendly pixie-ish waitresses explained to me, the feel of Bistro O is meant to be a bit playful and kooky. From childsize chairs to candy-flavored drinks to a quite entertaining ball pit, playful it definitely is. On the long list of cocktails and martinis (NT$160-500), you'll find funky-named items such as Love Forgetting Water, Saint Girl's Secret, Pick Me Up, and A Fistful of Dollars. I quickly downed the Naomi ($200), which I deemed a lip-smacking orangina with a twist, and my friend tried the Chapeau Framboise raspberry beer (NT$180). Bistro O has quite an impressive beer fridge, with various imported beers that peak at NT$180. They also have a standard list of shisha flavors, all for NT$400. This ShiDa bar resembles what the lounge bar used to be before it became trendy: shabby chic and ghetto fabulous. More importantly, it's a place where you can snuggle into a nook or cranny with a hookah and a good magazine and exhale a long shisha sigh of relief.
