Best Desserts in Taipei

Best Dessert Taipei

Regular readers will know that I am a big dessert lover. Whenever I travel to a city, I will make it my mission to track down the best dessert spots to satisfy my sweet tooth.

And it has been proven that I am not the only one. Desserts seem to be an Asian thing, and it is fast becoming a lifestyle to spend an afternoon at a dessert cafe, or to simply take-away some macarons and eat while you shop. Being a frequent visitor to Taipei, I have discovered that this city has many amazing French and Japanese patisseries and cake shops, and during my past few visits, I managed to check out quite a few highly raved dessert places. Here is a list of the best desserts in Taipei.

Burger & Lobster London

Burger & Lobster

The dining scene in London is very vibrant and there are so many good restaurants that it is almost impossible to keep up, even if you are living in the city. When I was doing my research for eating spots prior to the trip, one of the restaurants that kept popping out was Burger & Lobster – there are so many raved reviews about them online.

Of course, the question is: is the restaurant worth the hype? The answer is a big and undisputed YES. One of the most memorable meals that I had during my trip was at Burger & Lobster.

Bollywood Veggies & Poison Ivy Bistro Singapore

Bollywood Veggies

Words by Melody Yap, photographs by ladyironchef

Living in a cosmopolitan city like Singapore pretty much equates being in a rat race everyday. Work days are ever fast-paced and stressful, and so demanding on us physically, emotionally and mentally. We spend more than half the week working, and we hardly get to treat ourselves to a full day of relaxation. Weekends are hence so coveted and precious, and more often than not, we countdown to the two full days to indulge in the activities to recharge ourselves.

And staying in a city means all sorts of modernity – we shop, we read, we wine and dine, we catch a movie or stay home to watch drama serials, we go for a swim or practice yoga… but we missed out embracing the rural goodness that Singapore has to offer. Maybe you never knew, but at an unassuming corner of Singapore is a countryside so beautiful and peaceful, you’d never find fresher air – Kranji Countryside.

So it is back to basics in a rustic environment. We spent a Saturday afternoon at Bollywood Veggies, and the quietness brought much calmness to our souls.
