Therese in Taiwan: Forkers

When my friend Ainna came to Taiwan to meet up with some of her friends, we didn't miss the opportunity of meeting up as well. Since I wasn't that familiar with the restaurants around Taipei Main Station, her friend suggested we try this burger place called Forkers by Zhongshan Road.

Upon entering the restaurant, you will be greeted by a server waiting to lead you to your table. We were given the menu, where you will see how to order their burgers. There are 5 steps (the steps can also be seen in their website):

1. Choose a flavor
2. Choose a patty (beef patty, chicken breast, fish burger, pork sausage, veggie burger)
3. Choose 2 sides (salads or fries)
4. Choose a drink
5. Enjoy!

If you're not into burgers, there are other options for you as well. There are salads, wraps, and of course, there's dessert!

Nachos | 160 NT (~240 PhP)

Description: freshly fried tri-colored corn chips piled high with fresh tomatoes, Spanish onions, corn salsa, and lots of cheese; served with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream

For our appetizer, we ordered the nachos. We were surprised when this arrived at our table because it was huge! We were not expecting something this big. I liked how they were generous with the servings - lots of melted cheesy goodness, lots of tomatoes, onions, and corns. Their description of the appetizer is accurate.

Upper left: Double Trouble | 310 NT (~465 PhP)
Upper right: Mushroom Cheeseburger | 260 NT (~390 PhP)
Bottom center: The Canadian | 270 NT (~405 PhP)


Double Trouble: double patty, double cheddar, double bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato, and FORKERS burger sauce

Mushroom Cheeseburger: sauteed mushrooms, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and FORKERS burger sauce

The Canadian: grilled ham, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and FORKERS burger sauce

One thing we noticed is how big the portions of the food are. Value for money, I might add. We really liked the flavors as well! It was a good thing Ainna and I shared a burger, because we felt that it was just right for the 2 of us. Ainna's girl friend wasn't able to finish her burger, but her guy friend did. WE WERE AMAZED!

By the time dinner was over, we were too full for dessert. Too bad! I would have loved to try their dessert as well. Oh well, there's always next time!
