Located just off DongNing Road, new
Pogo-dub plays dual roles. During the daytime and evening
it's an eatery, but after 9 p.m. it's a relaxed lounge
style pub. The intimate setting and European feel of
its older building gives Pogo-dub a unique atmosphere.
In restaurant mode Pogo-dub serves up moderately priced
main courses such as Curry Pork Rice, Mexican Fried
Rice and Cheese Pork Steak Rice (each for NT$180). They
also serve hot pots priced between NT$230 and NT$280.
Owner A-Wei recommends the Pesto Seafood Fried Rice
(NT$250). In pub mode Pogo-dub is lounge style with
house, jazz, lounge and disco being the main mix. The
mix behind the bar includes scotch whiskeys (NT$2200
- NT$2500 per bottle), cocktails (NT$200) and shooters
(12 for NT$400). Beers are NT$100, or all-you-can-drink
on Friday and Saturday for NT$499. Making Pogo-dub stand
out in the crowd of Tainan pubs is its variety of Belgian
Beers. There are more than seven different choices available
including honey, passion fruit, apple and cherry beers
at NT$200 for a small and NT$480 for the large.
