I have a few days of freedom (sans enfant!) so I thought I would see a little more of Taipei. (As an added bonus, I set up my youbike card, but more on that later.) I headed to check out the famous Yong Kang street, and in the neighbourhood I discovered some cute street art:
There was even a little nook, with a bookshelf containing several placards that appear to describe neighbourhood projects like the street art and a community garden.
But I digress… what I really wanted to tell you was that right next door, this sign caught my eye:
Who could resist a place called nom nom? Not me, apparently! A cute little place with a brunch menu with dishes bearing names like the Woody Allen (smoked salmon salad roll, bagel with sweet potato cream cheese, potatoes with a spicy meat sauce, eggs), the Mike Wozoeski (cheese sausage, Frankfurter, eggs, toast), Happy Bunny (cream sauce mushrooms, eggs, potatoes, sourdough), and Girlfriends (caramel French toast with eggs and hashbrowns).
All brunch items come with coffee, juice, and yoghurt. I chose the Traveler (NT$330): eggs Benedict, one with bacon and the other with smoked salmon. And when it came to the table, it looked amazing.
The hollandaise was a bit unconventional, being on the sweet side, and the eggs were slightly overcooked (no runniness at all)–but overall the food was really tasty and I would definitely come again. They also had a few desserts in a display case, and the apple pie was really tempting: the apples looked nicely cooked together like in a tarte tatin!
Looking forward to my next visit!

I must be out of the loop – shoot me an email or somethin’ with an update. Z
