Cafes & Restaurants to visit in Taiwan

From street food in Taiwan, let’s take it indoors to a few places that I would recommend for you guys to enjoy and that as a tourists, you probably wouldn’t head to.

1. Long Time Ago Cafe

Entrance of Long Time Ago Cafe

A place that tourists can never find because it’s on a side street between office buildings

Outside sitting area

If you like the entrance already, you would love the inside!

Love the decor

It’s a very artsy cafe with a partition that looks like bookshelves dividing a small room inside with where we were sitting

They serve western food, so you can head there after waking up and if you don’t feel like your Taiwanese food

Wafffles with fried salmon

Looks like alot of food right? It’s not!! When you start eating, you will realize it’s just right for your tummy

Another breakfast set

The breakfast sets here are such a steal!! Look at my order and their bread is simply soft when you bite into it!

Ben’s burger

He said his burger was very feeling too for the price paid

Now, this cafe is famous for latte art, so we had to try it out!

Their teas are also very relaxing due to the scents

Owner of the cafe

As you can tell, it’s a very artsy cafe as the owners drew the wall art by themselves and they hand draw your latte arts for you!!!!

Address: 大安區安和路一段21巷9號

Price Range: RM25-Rm40

2. The Eslite Spectrum Songyan Store (1st Level)

Looks grand

Another artsy place, but this comprises a bookstore and a mall that sells local designer clothes and trinkets

Doesn’t it sound awesome already?

We went to the music cafe on the first floor and when you see it from the outside, you want to walk in because it looks very quaint

Black coffee

I was clearly not wrong! Look at how the black coffee was served? It’s ONLY a black coffee but it came like this with cookies and a “Book”which is really a music box!

Loving our drinks

My tea set was also served with a music box on a wooden platter!

Dessert

We ordered the rose apple tart and it HAD to look this pretty. They used apples to craft out the rose shape and it’s delectable with ice cream

Location: no. 88, Yanchang Rd., Xinyi Dist, Taipei 110, Taiwan( R.O.C), Taiwan

Price Range: R15-RM25

3. The Top

As it sounds, it’s really the top of Taipei city because you get an amazing view of the city. The restaurant itself serves Taiwanese food.

A must HAVE Photo

As it was a business dinner, I didn’t get to bring out my Olympus EPL7 to snap photos of the food but the view alone taken at a podium is enough to convince you to head there

Dining area

In terms of the food, it was tasty Taiwanese food with different varieties. Their menu is extensive like a Chinese restaurant over here from your meat all the way to vegetables and drinks.

Address: Address: No.33, Alley 4, Lane 61, Kaixuan Road,Taipei, Taiwan

Price Range: MYR 50-Rm150 for two

As I was there for such a short time, these were the only places I got to check out, but do share with others if I missed out on any:)

Eat Up,

P.S. Lovely pictures taken with my trusty Olympus EPL7 (no additional flash needed btw)
