When most people think of burgers, they often think of American style hamburger. If you are sick of American hamburgers, you can try a Japanese style hamburger at For Farm Burger. This cute little burger shop is located on Meichun Road close to the SOGO department store. They are open 11:30 – 21:30, and the price of the average meal is about NT$180.
When we got to For Farm Burger, we were surprised to see that it looked like an old house. The decoration and the building materials are all done in earth colors, and the tables and chairs are wood. They play country music, which was very relaxing. The music and the warm and soft light helped us leave all of our troubles behind.

The menu at For Farm Burger has two different items - burgers and pancakes. They have many kinds of burgers – beef, chicken, shrimp, pork, fish, and tofu. The most special one is the tofu burger because it’s traditional Japanese style and the flavor is unique. The waiter told us that the most popular burger is the roast chicken. For lunch, for Farm Burger also serves salty pancakes. The most popular salty pancake item is the fried chicken, and the second most popular is the assorted meal – pancakes, fried shrimp, chicken and fries. If you arrive after the lunch hour, you will see that the restaurant offers afternoon tea from 2pm to 4 pm. For afternoon tea, For Farm Burger offers an assortment of sweet pancakes with fruit.
Clair ordered a sunny-side-up chicken burger. When the waiter brought her meal, Clair felt surprised and couldn’t wait to enjoy it. The lovely sunny-side-up egg caught her attention, and underneath it was juicy roast chicken meat with lettuce. When she bit off a piece of the burger, chicken, bread, soft egg and lettuce filled her mouth. It tasted sweet and a little spicy because of the special sauce. The mysterious sauce was the key to making the hamburger taste like heaven. Clair’s burger came with fried potatoes, which were crispy and delicious.
Lynn ordered a salty pancake with cheese with meat sauce. The pancake consisted of two pancakes, bacon, fresh vegetables and meat sauce. The pancake was very rich and satisfying. Lynn chose different garnishes to go with her pancake. Everything was warm, fresh, and delicious.
