If you’re planning your next trip to Taipei, you might wanna put this cafe in your itinerary. Fujin Tree Cafe had such a welcoming exterior & cozy interior. There were so many Instagrammable places here for you to take pictures or ootds!
Let’s just get on to the food, I’m so excited to tell you my recommendations!
As it was a really hot day, we wanted to get thirst-quenching drinks. They do not offer your usual teas but more unique options. The Wedding Imperial Milk Tea (NT$220/cold, NT$210/hot) (right) had a strong tea taste to it, and the milk was on the lighter side which we really liked.
A sugar-free option would be the Fruity Tieguanyin Oolong Tea (NT$190/cold, NT$180/hot) (left). It was very fragrant, and it paired really well with the desserts here.
For coffees, we were recommended the Sicily Iced Coffee (NT$160) (left) which I would say is more for those who like strong coffee. The lemon was very evident, which made is quite a refreshing choice too. Surprisingly, the sourness from the lemon & bitterness from the coffee went well together.
However, my favourite drink here was the Handmade Dark Brown Sugar Latte (NT$190/cold, NT$180/hot) (right). The latte was topped with brown sugar on top, making it more sweet than bitter, which is how I like my coffee.
You can drop by for breakfast or lunch here and have their Classic Brunch (NT$360). In fact, it was quite a full portion even though it’s under “light bites”! On the plate was a toasted sourdough bread with a seasoned poached egg, asparagus, sausage & a side of fresh salad. I really liked how this brunch wasn’t so heavy unlike other big breakfasts with the touch of a simple sour greek yogurt & fresh fruits.
For a lighter option, you can opt for the Grilled Cheese & Beef Croissant Sandwich (NT$280). I’m a lover of croissants and this option can’t go wrong.
Since we were in Taiwan, we had to try their Ban Ban Noodles! The Chinese Herb Beef BanBan-Noodle (NT$360) was served with a side of garlic edamame, salad and a refreshing iced aiyu jelly dessert.
I was surprised by how tasty it was even though it looked so simple. The noodles were tossed in a fragrant sauce and topped with braised USDA beef shank in soy sauce. The beef was so flaky and tasty, and the poached egg made the noodles creamy too.
The desserts here are so unique and the MOMO Jasmine Chiffon Cake (NT$190) (left) is now on the list of my favourite cakes. The light spongey cake had the hint of tea and was so light and fluffy. With the side of whipped cream, oats, honey and fruits, it was not only IG worthy but so yummy too!
Their Tieguanyin Tiramisu (NT$220) (right) also stood out because they actually use tea in it. My fork sinked into the creamy Tiramisu and it was a great dessert to have on a hot day.
What’s great about this cafe is that after having your fill here, you can talk a walk around the vicinity. You can find fashion & souvenir shops nearby that are also under the Fujin group.
