Well.
They just changed their menu. Higher prices for the same or now-worse food.
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.
"...But I ended up in Taiwan," Lili.

Never underestimate how much assistance,
how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be
in a cold bottle of beer.

They're still the last of a dying breed: a place you can sit for hours with a tea costing NT$50 (probably; it used to be NT$40). I don't think anyone ever expected Cordon Bleu cuisine there in the first place (though the Thai coconut chicken wasn't bad; hope they still have that one.)
