More old-school, traditional pineapple cake than you'd find elsewhere lately. That mean, less sweet, a bit more tart, a lot more pineapple, and goes great hot and with tea. Sit down for a full sample! -- Johnny Wang via Foursquare
This is seriously yummy shaved ice. Part of the fun is mixing and matching toppings to create the best sundae possible. Our personal favorite combo is green (mung) bean, barley, and tapioca. -- ThePurplePassport.com via Foursquare
You want the “mango avalanche”—shaved ice piled high with cubes of fresh fruit, mango pudding, condensed milk, and mango sorbet. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c -- Travel + Leisure via Foursquare
While there is seating by the road, you can walk slightly further down for the entrance to their extension on the second floor where you order and get the dessert served to you. -- Leonard Ong via Foursquare
Place is filthy and so is their ice. The much-lauded 湯圓 (I had 芝麻）are too sweet. Try 豆花鄉 if you're looking for handmade ayi soup dumplings. It's a college place so you get college palate quality -- Leon Lee via Foursquare
Hands down the best 太陽餅 (suncake) and traditional/typical 鳳梨酥 (pineapple cake) I've ever had, in Taiwan or elsewhere. Both of these are best served after toasting for a short while in the oven. -- Johnny Wang via Foursquare
My favorite place in Taipei for canelés, especially the matcha ones. Triple berry loaf is also delicious - sliced according to how much you want + pay by weight. Very generous with their samples too! -- Ingrid Wong via Foursquare
