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.

Cherry Blossoms in Black and White.

Negative0-03-03(1)

Well, it’s true that you probably can’t even tell these are cherry blossoms but I’d like to think that leaves a little room for imagination. The truth is I was walking home from a cafe and these were blooming at the side of the street, calling at me. I only had black and white film with me in my camera but what the heck, right? The cherry blossoms are only here for such a short time each year.

Jian Hong Beef Noodles.

Negative0-30-30(1)

If I were to point you towards one place to visit for quintessential Taiwanese food, just one, it would be Jian Hong Beef Noodles (建宏牛肉麵). The truth is, I’m not even a huge beef noodles fan but Jian Hong does it cheap (beef noodles does not have to cost USD7 a bowl), generous and really good. Despite my repeated visits to this humble eatery, this was the first time I’ve ever had my camera with me and I’m so glad the pictures turned out for such a low speed film.
