Made in Taiwan Beer Bar

--- By Cheryl Sim Translated by Annie Liu

Tucked away in a tiny street right in the middle of downtown Kaoshiung is a warm and charming bar called "Made in Taiwan". On WenHong 1st Road, just north of the WuFu intersection, you will see a gate with a neon pink sign saying "Harajuku". Turn left there, into YuJhu Street, to grab an ice cold beer. Once inside, you will instantly feel the warmth and quirky character of this bar. Walls lined with old beer bottles, recycled-tire bar stools, collections of vintage Chinese postcards and posters, and even buoy hangings make it feel like you're in a rustic little museum.

One of the best things about this bar is that there's no shortage of chilled Warsteiner (NT$360 a jug) on tap! Apart from this, there's a selection of other imported beers and of course Taiwan beer (NT$100-NT$130)! For those who prefer softer drinks, there's coffee, tea and juice (where you can get the second one for half price). With all that drinking you need to dry your throat up with some tasty munchies. The spread includes spicy pod beans (NT$30) and a variety of BBQs (Mackerel, Fish Patty, Chicken Wings, Bacon with Cherry Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Peppers--starting at NT$60). The Deep Fried Taro with beef/pork (NT$180) and the Big Mushroom sizzling hotplate both come highly recommended.

Jay, the wonderful owner, will always welcome you with great conversations and laughs. Maybe it's the English menu, the ice cold beer, BBQ grubs and the fact that you're surrounded by things older than you, or perhaps it's simply the sense of total relaxation you feel. Whatever its secret, Made in Taiwan Beer Bar is a unique, sociable bar where you can happily chill out with your mates!

Alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
