Seeking solace from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kaohsiung? Longing for an outdoor bar and eatery where hundreds of pesky scooters aren't rushing by? If the aforementioned apply, then why not head over to ChengCing Lake, to The Casbah. Where the former Lake Tavern sat is where you will now find The Casbah, which is now run by new owners Eric Birckhead and Ann Chun. Though a menu and some renovations are still in the works, one established certainty is the quality of the food here. Patrons will surely savor the baked Nacho Plate (NT$200), with its made-fresh-daily salsa, and the equally tasty Green Pepper Beef with Rice (NT$150, or NT$200 with cheese). A Burger with Parmesan-coated Fries (NT$150) will also please picky palates. And, if you buy the burger, you'll receive a Foster's draught for a mere NT$50. To further entice you is their VIP card which enables you to enjoy 12 draughts for NT$1,000, while regular tap beers cost NT$100 each. Treating yourself to a meal at The Casbah, with its tranquil setting, could offer the respite you long for. --By Michael Brown and Pei Ling Wu, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Michael Brown
