KGB

KGB is short for Kiwi Gourmet Burger and they’re located on the left hand side of Shida Road if you’re coming from the Taipower MRT station. They have a pretty decent selection of burgers and everything is cooked fresh as you order it. I’ve only had the classic cheese burger there so far, but they offer a wide range of more exotic options. This is also a good place for vegetarians, as they have a big selection of veggie burgers and they also have a selection of chicken burgers.

They also have a good selection of side orders and desserts. Milkshakes are also on the menu and they have a special selection of imported beer and cider from South Africa, despite the New Zealand theme. Most stuff on the menu seems to be going for between NT$250-300, but as they don’t have a website as yet and I didn’t memorize the menu, I can’t say for sure. I would definitely recommend KGB if you’re in the mood for a tasty burger with a difference.

The address is No 5, Lane 114, Shida Road and their phone number is 02-2363-6015. The place isn’t huge, so if you’re planning on going on a Friday or Weekend night, I’d suggest you call ahead. You can find more details on their Facebook page.

2019 Update: Unlike so many other places I’ve written about here, KGB is still going strong and they still serve up very decent burgers and the prices haven’t gone up by much since the original review in 2008. If anything, they’ve expanded their menu and even managed to survive a Burger King opening almost next door (which closed a year or so ago).
