Wow, after a 4 month hiatus I am finally back to the clubs! Three months in China and Taiwan have really given me a new appreciation for the clubhouse sandwich scene in Winnipeg. I managed to find a few clubs during my travels, and I’d like to share them with you over the next few weeks.
I would like to start with one of the worst clubs I have ever had in my life. Walking around the streets of Taipei is a whole new experience. Seas of people, scooter madness, and restaurants on every corner fill this beautiful city. I am not sure why, but Evans Burger caught my eye. Since I’m not a huge fan of Chinese food, the American appeal of the restaurant is prolly what reeled me in.
We walked in and grabbed a seat for two. The decor was a cheesy rip off of any classic American chain restaurant, but thats what I like, so we decided to stick around and check out the menu. As soon as my eye saw a “club house that feeds 3 – 4 people”, there was no turning back. I thought I was in for a real treat, but boy was I wrong.
When the waiter brought out the club, I was shocked. It was the same size as any club In North America, if not smaller, and was probably the most expensive meal I had in Taiwan during my whole stay. According to the menu, the reason why this club is special is because the bread is “french toast.” Well lets just say this club was terrible. For starters, there was NO lettuce! One slices of processed cheese, followed my once piece of processed ham, followed by one more piece of processed cheese–that’s it! And what’s up with four pieces of bread?
Evans Burger was hands down one of the worst clubs I have ever had. If you are in beautiful Taiwan, make sure to pass when you see an Evans Burger!
Oh yeah, and two days after I went to Evans Burger, a local told me, “whatever you do, don’t go to Evans Burger.” Thanks for the tip!
