We had to wait a little while for a table (20mins or so) because the restaurant is fairly small inside.
The sandwich menu is up on the blackboard, but the menu below is easier to read and in English, too.
What we ordered:
1. 花醬肉鬆蛋煉乳 huā jiàng ròu sōng dàn liàn rǔ Dried shredded pork (pork floss) with peanut butter, egg and cheese.
2. 花醬肉蛋起司 huā jiàng ròu dàn qǐ sī Braised pork with egg and cheese sandwich
3. 炭香紅茶鮮奶 tàn xiāng hóng chá xiān nǎi Charcoal toasted black tea with milk
4. 炭香紅茶 tàn xiāng hóng chá Charcoal black tea
1. 花醬肉鬆蛋煉乳 huā jiàng ròu sōng dàn liàn rǔ Dried shredded pork (pork floss) with peanut butter and egg
This baby is thick! The tea was a delicious accompaniment to my breakfast.
Generous helpings of pork floss, soft egg, flavours of peanut butter and cheese all come through well in this sandwich. The pork floss was fresh and not chewy at all. The egg was delicious and the flavours all sang really well – impressive.
2. 花醬肉蛋起司 huā jiàng ròu dàn qǐ sī Braised pork with egg and cheese sandwich
The egg is so thick in this! The pork was well cooked and not dry.
Each slice of bread is toasted over the charcoals in the restaurant itself. Which is quite special in that I haven’t seen this done before.
It’s juicy and each ingredient tastes fresh and packs a punch of flavour.
Not a bad price for a good quality and filling breakfast..?

Overall, I can safely say that this place and the one behind NanMen Market 南門市場 are places that immediately come to mind when craving a good sandwich in Taipei. However, I think this place has the edge by using what feels like higher quality ingredients.
