Sports Bar in Taipei | The Chips
The Chips is a little different than the sports bar people are used to. It exhibits a cottage style vibe and has a gigantic (I mean it) size of menu to choose from. You can devour burgers, pasta, bountiful dessert, and even risotto while you cheer your team on.
Since it’s a brunch restaurant during daytime, it should come as no surprise regarding the variety of foods they provide. But make no mistake, the atmosphere is LIT when the game begins. And again, do make sure you book in advance, especially after nightfall.
