We read in more than one food blog that Shia Te makes Taipei’s best pineapple cakes. To be honest, we don’t know whether they are the top, but they are certainly scrumptious and the best we had in our nine-day visit. We tried a number of their sweets, and all where delicious, especially the crust. A common sight at local... More

This is a must stop place for souvenir of Taipei BUT make sure you have enough luggage space and weight. You can find pineapple tarts all over taipei but this is the award winning stuff. You will see long queue but clear quite fast. The famous Pineapple Tart is rather heavy and occupy some spaces. Expired in 14 days too.... More

Once you open the individual packet, you can smell the aroma of freshly baked pineapple tart. One bite and it takes you through pineapple tart heaven. This is how much I love CHIA TE's pineapple tarts.

Chia Te bakery is famous for its Taiwanese-style pineapple pastries and rightly so. The short crust is rich yet light; the pineapple filling is not too sweet. For those who like salty-sweet flavours in their dessert, the version with a whole salted yolk in the centre was equally delicious. Be sure to check the shelf life of each product as... More

How to get there: An easy walk there from Nanjing Sanmin Station. We were wondering if we were on the right path when a queue caught our eyes. Yes, there was a queue when we reached the bakery at around 2pm on 10/12/16. Fortunately, the wait to enter the bakery was not too long. Expiry date, pricing and packaging: We... More

This is my second time to buy pineapple tarts at Chia Te. The tarts are yummy and you will find pineapple inside. Their strawberry tarts are yummy too. Their longan muffin is also very famous. Unfortunately, this time I went too early , the cake was not yet ready . Ma be next time.

Chia Te, the one and only shop. If you think of pineapple pastry and many more Taiwanese pastry no matter for fulfill you stomach or grab it for souvenir, I recommend Chia Te. Mostly everyday, there will be a long queue in front of the shop, that shows how famous this shop is even for local and tourists. The shop... More

In Taiwan, you will be spoilt for choices when come to pineapple tarts. This is like the nation's pride and they come in different acidic levels of pineapple fillings. To me, a good pineapple tart must have good pineapple filling; one that is not too sweet, neither too sour. This has to be encapsulated in the perfect crust. Chia Te... More

This is my second visit to this place; the first back in 2012. All these years of eating pineapple tarts, nothing can compare to what Chia Te Bakery has to offer when it comes to taste. Place was overrun by Mainland China tourists that were buying by the cartons during closing hours during my last visit. I've timed it to... More
