Yaletown Bistro: REAL Canadian Poutine in Asia!
This little restaurant looks like it should be in Vancouver (where the owner's from). Like the Yaletown district, it's got red brick and nice comfy lighting - just a nice place to have a meal. There are 2 floors. First floor has a table for 4, a long bar seating, a foosball table, and an open kitchen where the proprietors work feverishly. 2nd floor has a couple of couches, more seating, and a washroom. The large window on the 2nd floor overlooks the boulevard, which is rather nice. Music is appropriate, and I think it's all Canadian bands and singers.
Food is all pretty healthy - they've got a bunch of different salads, paninis, "smokies" (smoked sausages), fries, smoothies, etc. A menu selection you might find in places in North America, not Taiwan.
Had a chat with the owners, and they're really friendly people.
Favorite Dish: We had the poutine. Owner said they make their own cheddar cheese curds, served with imported poutine gravy, over fresh-cut russet potato fries. Tasted just like back home, unlike the meat gravy and shredded moz cheese we've had at a lot of other pubs and places.
The honey dijon basil chicken panini was awesome too. Their ciabatta bread was super tasty, and lots of nice fillings.
We had a two berry yogurt smoothie which definitely hit the spot, and their masala chai tea was delicious.
Overall, a great experience!Related to:

Mushroom Garden Hot Pot Restaurant: Hot Pot--Mushroom Style!
This is a great place to get away from your regular, ol' hot pot meal in Taiwan. Taiwan is famous for their different types of hot pot meals and this is just one of them. The mushroom hot pot here is really quite tasty--very refreshing and healthy. Who doesn't love mushrooms?! =)
