Best Tarts Ever!

Chia Te holds a soft, clogged artery place in my heart. Their stuff is seriously delicious. They make great gifts, great snacks, and great conversation. The pineapple cakes are the obvious choice, but I found I liked the Walnut and Allspice (or something like that) even better. I ended up going home with boxes for friends, colleagues, and myself.

I didn't go to this restaurant by colleague gave me this Pineapple pastry. This is one of the best pastry I have even eaten. I guess this place should not be missed if I ever go to Taipei. It's so awesome I want to eat more. Too bad.. I got only one :-(

This bakery has many varieties of pastry and is famous for their pineapple cakes (with egg yolk, cranberry, or other flavors). Very creative. It is constantly full of locals and tourists. Be there around 2-3pm weekdays to avoid a long line. The store is located within walking range (about five minutes) from the Exit 2 of Nanjing Sanmin MRT station.

My Taiwanese colleagues recommended this place for the best pineapple cakes. I went there on a day when I was leaving Taiwan and it was raining heavily. There was a huge queue, before one could place his order but all that was worth it. Amazing cakes with different flavors like cranberry etc, which everyone in my family liked.

Everyone has different tastes when it comes to pineapple cakes. If you like yours with more tart then Sunny Hills is the way to go. However, if you're looking for an all around good pineapple cake and a variety of other baked goods to choose from then Chia Te is the way to go. I went on a rainy weekday... More
