Restaurant review: Chef Jason — My Place Burgers and Pasta

By David Chen  /  Staff reporter

Other pasta dishes include the “Spicy Vodka Pomodoro” (NT$190), a tomato-based sauce made with vodka and served on a bed of fettuccini (which is not made from scratch), Chicken Parmesean (NT$240) and Shrimp Pesto (NT$240).

My Place has the same relaxed, college neighborhood vibe that Gusto Street Hot Dog did. Indeed, if not for the food, which is much better, and a new storefront sign, you wouldn’t be able to tell that things have changed.

You also probably wouldn’t guess that Hobbie, who’s 40 but looks and dresses like a scruffy twenty-something college student, is a retired US Army soldier who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. “Chef Jason” makes a point to talk to patrons when he’s free from the kitchen, and his mellow but friendly demeanor only adds to the restaurant’s laid-back charm.
