I can’t believe I forgot to post about one of the most interesting restaurants in Taipei (ok Modern Toilet restaurant wins for being most interesting/out there if you’re into sitting on toilet seats and eating ice cream shaped like, well you can guess). I always try to visit a branch of Kan Pai Yakiniku, a Japanese bbq restaurant, when I’m in Taiwan. The food – a variety of grilled meats/vegetables (grilled at your table), rice dishes, and some seafood are also consistently tasty and pretty affordable (you can have dinner and drinks for about $20).
But this is also one of the most fun restaurants I’ve been to because they have a promotion before 8:30 pm (or when the waiters get bored because we received the promotion at 9:30/10 pm): kiss someone at the table, let the restaurant take a picture, and get a free plate of bbq beef or a pint of beer. There were a variety of people kissing of both sexes – the funniest we saw was two guys kissing with a napkin between them. Not really a work kinda restaurant, but so fun with friends.
