World famous French entertainer Guillaume Cadilhac checked in with us from a stop in Taipei City at JB’s Burgers, which has been around a few years, and was started by some ‘expat experts’ in burgermania. Cadilhac’s performs under the name Kayoumin, and delights Asian audiences with Mandarin renditions of French love songs.
JB’s offers a loaded up burger for TWD 225, or about $7 US. Their regular hamburger clocks in at about USD $3.00, and you have your choice of beef or pork patties, with a lot of extra toppings, which range from the simple (peanut butter, at 50 cents) to the sublime (blue cheese, at a buck). Add an extra meat patty for $1.80.
A veggie patty is also available. Like most fast food outlets in Asia, JB’s offers a full range of beers along with traditional soft drinks. Fresh cut fries with dipping sauces are the the standard issued side order. A side of vegetable sticks is available as a healthier option.
Cadilhac pronounced the burger as “pretty good”, but we were more impressed with his fellow diner, whom we would find distracting enough as to not remember the burger.
Ah, but for the French…….food and amore, eh? Thanks for the note, Guillaume!
