If you ask people what’s near Qiyan Station in Taipei, the answer will probably be unanimous: nothing. It’s not exactly a tourist destination, especially with the more alluring sights of Beitou right around the corner. However, all places have a hidden treasure or two, and Yummy Vegan House 芽米屋 is one of those. This nice vegan cafe is tucked right next to the busy MRT line and has some tasty eats. Check out more info after the jump.
I don’t know how it happened, but I think I have eaten more vegetarian burgers in Taipei than beef ones. I can’t complain however, as the quality has impressed a red-meat lover like myself. My latest burger escapade was at Miss Green 環保有機飲食概念店 (not exactly a Chinese translation of the name, but I’m not sure it even has one…) in Taipei. The cozy restaurant is completely vegan, for those who went vegetarian but then wanted to go the extra mile. Though the menu is small, there are some good choices that suit the urban nature aesthetic of the interior. And yes, they have brownies. Check out more photos after the jump.
Every time I get pizza, I always opt for whichever has the most meat. Sometimes it may be called meat lover’s pizza, or four sausage pizza, but as long as it’s covered with meat I’m up for it. I had to change my strategy at Part Time Su 偶爾素一下 in Taipei since it’s a vegan pizza place. Can a pizza be called such without a quarter pound of sausage lathered on top? I enter a disturbing, yet tasty world of meatless pizza after the jump.
The vegan eatery Vege Creek 蔬河 has mix of interesting gimmicks. Is it a hot pot restaurant? A ramen place? A supermarket? The restaurant cherry picks some aspects from all of these places while mixing in some other creative ideas, such as having only one long table in the entire restaurant that everyone eats around. It is definitely one of the more distinctive restaurants I’ve been to in Taiwan. Check out some info after the jump.
