I know about this bakery from my husband. He really love milk cakes and now he just bought wife cake (for me). And the taste is so good. If you want to taste it, and not have to be in a long queue, then come early. Try milk cake, sun cake and wife cake.

Long long lines at this bakery and they limit buying to 2 large boxes per person. Heard that it was the best pineapple cake in Taipei and it was good. Average box cost 350TWD (12 pcs) or higher. It's easier to buy now as 7 eleven now distributes it complete with the boxes though recommend going to the bakery for... More

If you're a fervent devourer of pineapple shortcakes (as I am), chances are you would have tried those from bakeries in Hong Kong such as Kee Wah and Wing Wah. Chia Te's pineapple shortcake potentially trumps them all! Getting here is easy. Just take the green line in the direction of Songshan. It's the second last stop. Once you arrive,... More

This iconic store in Taipei is the must-do for those of you that wish to buy something uniquely Taiwan for your families and friends overseas. Naturally, the pineapple tart is THE one to go for because it is always associated with Taiwan. Chia Te has other offering such as pineapple with yellow yoke, cherry tart, sun cake et cetera. It's...

It's my second time to Chia Te. The queues at the cashier is just as stressful. Sun cakes were out of stock the day I went. Milk cakes were just as good. But the standard of the cranberry pineapple tart has plunged. Very disappointed as my brother and I were very looking forward to the cranberry pineapple tart. Will still... More

At this shop, you can choose the combination of cakes you want in a box. You get the size box you want (like 6 or 10 pcs) and fill it with the flavors of pineapple cake you want. They are delicious! There are lots of flavors, like cranberry, strawberry, cherry, pineapple with egg yolk, walnut. They also sell other baked... More

Today is Dec 30, 2015 my friend want to buy pineapple pie for souvenir. We walked to get to the train at Taipei main station and bought this box of pineapple pie at 7-11. When we looked for manufacturing date. This is so weird. It said January 4, 2016 and expire February 3, 2016 as in the picture I attached.
