29-1, AnHe Rd., Sec. 1
--By Charles McHale , translated

The End of the World is near.
This flaming signature cocktail shot is made from
a volatile 160-proof (80%) Polish vodka and your
choice of Kahlua or Creme de Menthe, then downed
'gan bei'-style. The intriguing part comes after
the flame is extinguished. You are given a straw
to snort (yes, snort) the exhausted alcohol vapor.
The experience is unforgettable, though after
a few End of the World (NT$400) shots you might
forget everything else. Plan B excels at providing
an orgy of stimuli with a dimly-lit interior,
plush couches and bead-curtained private tables.
The cocktails aren't the only thing smoking; hookahs
are available for NT$500 and a special alcohol-filled
one is NT$800. The wine menu is good and the choice
of single malts and other liquor is excellent.
Then there's the food. Try the Stir Fry Spicy
Pork Intestines NT$280 for a snack. For a meal,
the Pork Knuckle with Sauerkraut and Mustard Sauce
(NT$460) is outstanding. Current regulations require
us to remind you not to drink and drive.
