Not being much of a fan of sweet treats, I was quite surprised at having to queue to enter the shop and face the crowd inside scooping up just about anything they could get their hands on. However, one bite and I'm a convert. We tried the cakes and biscuits (almond cookies and pistschio cookies). Once you start on one,... More

We visited Chia Te as it was highly recommended by friends and locals alike. The shop was crowded with a perpetual queue, but it did not disappoint. Selection of cakes/biscuits and payment were quite systematic and orderly. The variety of cakes/biscuits was vast, although the pineapple cakes are a favourite with many. I ended up with a few boxes of... More

Chia Te has a very large selection of tarts including a whole lot of other flavors other than the traditional pineapple. The usual pineapple tart is still the better selling tart and I like that it does not have the usual tangy-ness of pineapples. Chia Te's packaging is one of the best I've seen. To be honest, in terms of... More

While visiting the in laws in Taipei, they wanted to send back a taste of Taiwan, back to the states. They insisted that Chia Te was "the best" bakery in Taipei, frankly, I was not disappointed. There was a line out the door, with an employee controlling the flow of people that were inside at any given time. After about... More

it is quite far from Dandy Hotel but worth the journey. The pineapple tarts melts in your mouth. Savour every bit of it. I bought pineapple tarts from a few bakeries to try and this Bakery came out Number 1. My advise this place is a must to buy gifts for families and friends. Don't go anywhere else.

Until I taste better pineapple cakes, Chia Te's are number 1 on my list. The crust is light, buttery, and crumbly and the filling is soft and not over-powering sweet. Unfortunately I didn't buy much because I didn't buy into the hype yet. This would have been a situation where samples would have got me to purchase more. The pineapple... More

Known to be the best Pineapple cake store in Taiwan. However do beware of large crowds that can leave you having to wait to enter the shop or move around, especially when tourist buses stop by. For those wanting to purchase the pineapple cakes in bulk-please ignore the loose pineapple cakes and the empty boxes that says how many pieces.... More
