Neighborhood: Tamsui / Bali District
The enchanting Tamsui Old Street boasts the most beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf sunset of Taiwan. There are also well-complimented delectable snacks such as Ah Gei (bean curd) and fish ball, etc. On Bali left bank, there is the Ferry Old Street and Wazihwei Nature Reserve. It is relaxing and comfortable whether by strolling or cruising through on a bike. Besides the bustling business district, Tamsui is also full of an old vintage flavor. From western architectural relics to residences dating back to Japanese rule, each with their respective features and great stories to tell. If you visit Tamsui in spring, the magnificent cherry blossoms of Tianyuan Palace are a must see. If you wish for further intimacy with nature, why not camp out for the night under the starry sky. The Bali culture park camping site offers round, transparent bubble tents. Experience the close, seamless connection to surrounding nature from within for an unforgettable memory.

Best eaten warm when it is out from the oven
Dec 2018 • Family
There are quite a number of outlets in my home country and I decided to give it a try in this original main outlet in Tamsui. Was quite surprised there were no queue, maybe it was a working Friday. A spectacle to watch when the cake was taken out from the oven and the staff began to cut the cake into big rectangles. Not cutting services but there was a plastic knife to cut into smaller pieces in the paper pack.
The cake was fluffy and eggy. Best eaten warm with a cup of hot coffee. The staff advised us to keep only for 3 days in the fridge after which it would expired,

I read about this shop in Shilin, went there to buy their original flavoured cake to try in the morning after breakfast. It was so yummy when it's fresh. But it was still yummy when it's cold. We kept some for breakfast next morning, it tasted very nice still. My mom kept asking for more.
When we were back in Malaysia, my mom asked me to look for the recipe. She likes the cake being light and not too sweet. When I googled it, I found out that this shop opens in Malaysia in many places. So now we can get it whenever we crave for it. It tastes exactly the same as Taiwan's, good quality control I shall say.

Amazing Cakes - cheese or no cheese...made to order in front of you!
Jan 2018
What a gem, this little cake shop right on the Tamsui Old Street. People line up for the Cake you have two choices. Cheese or No Cheese. It is like a lighter Cheesecake flavour with vanilla and Butter. Cheap at US$3-4 for a huge slice. They give you a nice takeaway box...Good luck and enjoy!

Interesting to watch the baking and cutting
Nov 2017 • Couples
A small crowd of tourists had gathered to watch the staff cut up the freshly baked cake, so we joined in the fun. Why not? It was interesting. Be prepared to queue as they only bake one large slab a time that can be portioned into smaller loaves. They get snapped up fast. We bought the regular and the cheese variety. The cheese was really just a layer of processed cheese sandwiched in the middle of the loaf, would recommend the regular one. The cakes are packed piping hot into a paper box, with the lid left open so that the heat and condensation can escape. Fresh, fluffy and inexpensive, I’d say just do the tourist thing and get yourself a loaf. There were other brands selling similar cakes, didn’t try them but they didn’t look too shabby either. Follow your nose. 😊

Delicious cake

Very delicious, fluffy and soft. It's amazing and reasonably priced too.

The one I have tried it's at Beitou and its cheese.

士林店に行きました。 went to the Shilin brunch
Mar 2016
士林夜市のお店で買いました。チーズ入りのを1つ、100元。すっごくフワフワで美味しい!常温保存だと賞味期限は1日以内みたいですが、3月初旬だと常温でも2日後ぐらいまでは大丈夫でした。次に行ったらまた絶対買って食べたいです。

so nice! really like it. staff was kind too.
