Current Crush - Taipei Brunch Spots
When Antipodean opened last Spring, I thought it would just be another café that you only go for the gram or the colorful kangaroo art mural right outside the cafe, but boy was I wrong! The Antipodean, an Australian inspired third wave coffee shop, is now my favorite spot to have a big, nice, satisfying brunch in Taipei. Nothing beats a full plate of deliciously cooked scrambled eggs, hash browns, grilled tomato, beans, mushrooms and fresh avocado. Their menu features an array of not only drooling but also aesthetically pleasing brunch items such as avocado baked eggs and acai bowl. TA is happily situated near MRT Gangqian station, tucked in a small alley, with a beautiful outdoor patio in front. Stop by on a sunny day, this place will not disappoint!
My must-order? Avocado Big Breakfast
Address: No. 4, Lane 26, Gangqian Road, Neihu District, Taipei, Taiwan
Wholesome and clean, organic and fresh. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Plants. A plant-based, gluten free eatery established in the East District of Taipei back in 2016. It is my go-to spot for a light and healthy lunch with friends. Don’t be lulled into the false thinking that you are paying too much for a few kale leaves. People seem to have misconception of vegan food as boring and bland, well, wait till you savor the absolutely gorgeous vegetarian offers at Plants that make us carnivores second guess our lifestyle for the duration of the meal. Who knew vegan food could be this good? From baked sweet potato fries with beet ketchup to chia seed pudding, there are plenty of options to choose from.
My must-order? Crackers with Hummus dip & acai bowl
Address: No. 10, Lane 253, Section 1, Fuxing South Road, Da’an District, Taipei, Taiwan
Sugar Pea has been on my radar for some time after seeing so many mouth watering pictures online and hearing people rave about how good this place is, I finally made a pilgrimage to the new it spot in town. The first experience was so good that I literally went back 3 more times within the same month and tried 13 of the 16 total items on their menu. Yes, that is how good this place is. The ban
