Thought I'd post this in case people are looking for some new restaurants. I'm assuming people know about Fingas, Early Bird, and Fubar, so thought I'd throw some new ones out there.
Salut Pizaa - Been open a long time, but I never seem to see people there. Maybe it's the times that I go, but thought I'd let new people know about that place. I've tried three other local pizza places and this is, by far, the best one. My friend told me that they're doing pizza by the slice, but for $350NT, I'd rather get a whole one and take it home. It's right next door to fubar. http://www.englishintaiwan.com/restaurants-and-pubs/taichung/salut-pizza-italian-food-taichung
Right across from fubar is a new sandwich, salad, and soup place. Grilled cheese sandwiches are really cheap and taste great. I haven't had the soup yet, but the salads are amazing and come with tofu on top (might be able to get other toppings, but haven't looked). wife and I ate there for roughly $500NT and got a beer, coke, two sandwiches, and a salad.
