Burger Out Review
Wow. I read a review that this was close to LA’s Howlin’ Rays (which I think is the best in the world) so it inspired me to go check out Burger Out in Taipei. Taipei has a lot of good fried chicken places, but not too many serve up a delicious fried chicken sandwich. I’m glad I found Burger Out because it’s hands down the best chicken sandwich in Taipei.
4.5/5 Sriracha Mayo Hot Chicken Burger: I played it safe with the mild sriracha mayo and I’m glad I did. It had a great kick of spice while still be very flavorful and juicy. This is probably the most juicy chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. The sauce, lettuce, onions and pickles complimented the chicken very well. To be very critical, the only thing I think that would have made the sandwich was if they made the breading thicker and crunchier. Everything else was perfect.
3/5 French Fries: The french fries look like their made from fresh potatoes, but they weren’t very crispy. I like that crunch.
4.5/5 Fried Chicken and Tangyuan: The fried chicken was super good. The spice level was excellent and even better with the tangyuan (fried mochi). The tangyuan (fried mochi) is covered in a sweet peanut crust that adds another layer of flavor to the already amazing chicken. There was no filling inside the fried mochi but still very good.
5/5 Value: NT$250 (US$8) for a hot chicken sandwich, french fries and a beer. That is a great deal and they don’t add a 10% service charge.
5/5 Service: Very attentive and welcoming. We had some questions about the menu and they explained everything very well and politely.
5/5 Ambiance: I think this restaurant is brand spanking new. Everything was SUPER clean.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan tax refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
