    Lovely little place with a nice clean design and atmosphere. It’s primarily a beer bar but also had a sneaky good whisky collection. The beer list has been perfectly selected every time I’ve gone. Excellent balance between light/heavy and local/out of town beers. The staff always has a suggestion as well based on your favorite beers. The food. This is what sets it apart. Taiwanese Street food is the PERFECT match for the beer. Popcorn chicken, tornado fries, scallion pancake, shrimp garlic noodles, potstickers, I could go on. Just get everything.

    High side is on the high side for the price for the portion of food compared to other Taiwanese restaurants such as A&J that comes in on the low side. However the quality of the bar food is better than average with an Asian twist primarily Taiwanese style. Service is quick but make sure you know what you want to order at the bar especially when its busy.

    We came for Sunday lunch and ordered the special passion fruit and yuzu mimosa for $3 each which was both sweet and sour as expected.

    As a Taiwanese American, we ordered the Taiwanese sesame noodles, Taiwanese sausage and fried rice, and Mala pickled cucumbers as well as the spicy chicken wings to compare a typical bar snack.

    The Taiwanese sesame noodle had a flower like presentation with less taste than I expected however the cucumbers and wings made up the difference as one was really sour and slightly spicy and the other was extremely spicy with the chili sauce balanced out with the garlic flavor. Finally the fried rice provided the staple to mellow out the spiciness if needed and to fill you up.

    Next time we will have to try more of the craft beers and other food items especially the pork chop and rice.

    Tips: Know what you want to order beforehand and snag a parking spot down the alley behind the restaurant.

    Excellent all around. Hosted a baby shower here and all guests were thoroughly pleased. Wife will like to go back to enjoy the beer list at a future date. Many thanks to the caring and attentive staff.

    Goid service with friendly staff
    Tight seating: not really great for "dining". Gets loud and fills quickly and you are right next to people. However, it is a true bar with some food: small bites & larger entree options. That said, the food was decent. Not family or children friendly, but good for quick drinks and apps with friends. Healthy beer selection and a few ciders.

    Really great beers, especially sours. Food is awesome. Wings are a favorite but they're so spicy. We've loved everything we're ever ordered from here. Highly recommend!
