For an unforgettably unique tea-time snack head to Zenzoo, where you can get green tea cheesecake or an excellent cake made of red bean paste. While you’re getting your (light) sugar fix, knock back a carton of bubble tea, the iced tea with tapioca balls that’s all the rage among Japanese teenagers – hot or cold, with or without milk, with almond, sesame or kumquat, it's oddly fun and refreshing.
For main meals, the Taiwanese cooking is simple but full of flavour, cooked with great care. The set menu is €14 (€17 with a dessert, €10 for the lunchtime special), with a choice of sautéed prawns in a spicy sauce, caramelised pork ribs with lemon, chicken with green tea, beef satay, vegetarian spring rolls and noodle soup. The menu varies a bit, but you’ll always find those basic options, served with rice and two side dishes that vary with the seasons. Perfect for a winter pick-me-up, or to eat while catching some sun on the terrace on a summer’s afternoon.
