Anyone craving a late-night snack or drink
in a relaxing open-air setting might want to head over to
Oldies BBQ, the latest venture by Oldies Pub and Oldies Franks
owner Leo. This no-frills place is in the big commercial/parking
tower opposite Peoples' Square and is wedged between KFC and
McDonald's. There is a small counter and barbecue grill, plus
some umbrella-shaded sidewalk tables. The simple-but-tasty
menu includes barbecued meats (served on sticks) like lamb,
chicken, black pepper beef and sate pork, all for NT$40 each.
Leo also sells his popular homemade German Sausage for NT$100.
He stresses that his place isn't your average "chuan
shao" BBQ place but, rather, leans more towards Cajun-style
barbecue, with meat marinated in herbs and spicy sauces. To
go with your food, there's Foster's or Heineken (NT$70), Smirnoff
Ice (NT$80), Coke (NT$30) and Snapple (NT$60). If that isn't
good enough, Oldies BBQ also sells bottles of its house French
red wine for NT$500.
