Zhanlu Coffee / 湛盧咖啡.

Negative0-26-26(1)

Remember how I said that I don’t visit large, chain-store cafes in my last coffee shop post? Well, Zhanlu Coffee (湛盧咖啡) somehow falls into that category with four outlets in Taipei but in a coffee connoisseur kind of way – they roast they own beans, offer coffee workshops and make their own desserts everyday. The tiramisu (real tiramisu, you guys, with ladyfingers! I can’t stress enough how disturbing it is to serve a ladyfinger-less dessert you dare call tiramisu) is worth my time going back again and again.

  1. Every time i read about tiramisu and ladyfingers,i just picture a dessert filled with okra(we call okras ladies finger:D).
    But i guess a good Tiramisu must taste heavenly.

    1. When I was 16 I worked for a German/Italian restaurant and watched the chef make real tiramisu from scratch and it just took over my heart – the work that goes into making this delicious dessert is amazing! Which makes me sad people just make a tiramisu-flavored cake and call it tiramisu. :(
