Noticed how the Taiwanese seem to idolise everything French? You must have noticed the innumerable amounts of Eiffel Tower figurines, French style bakeries and Macaroons around Taipei by now.
Going for breakfast is certainly worth doing every now and then, as the relaxed and comfortable feel of Paul at breakfast time is something that can be enjoyed whilst further enjoying your eggs.
This isn’t going to be a long post or packed with pictures. I will be keeping this one short and sweet.
I had the Eggs Benedict with Salmon ($320). This is one of my favourite breakfasts when I eat out at any western place. However, previously eating this at The Diner made me become a little more cautious (runny hollondaise sauce and poorly cooked eggs at the DunHua Branch a while back), so I tend to save my order for places I am sure will be able to pull it off to a high standard.
Cue – PAUL:
Two beautifully cooked poached eggs with the yolk nicely runny, plenty of thick cut smoked salmon layered on top of nice crunchy toasted bread and accompanied by a fried tomato and a salad with vinaigrette dressing on the side. Washed down with a coffee, it well and truly hits the spot.
In the morning, Paul can get a bit busy, so I did make reservations beforehand. However, this is quite easy over the phone and they are likely to speak English, too. Definitely make sure to check out their range of baked goods and pastries as they are not likely to dissapoint, too. A favourite of mine being the Strawberry mille feuille ($225)
Recently moved out to Taiwan and don't know how to order at restaurants? I got you sorted. Can read some characters but still don't quite know what you're ordering? I got you sorted.
This site has been developed to help people who can't speak or read Mandarin. I use pinyin, characters and English to talk about food ordering, and how you can do it at specific restaurants.
If you like it, then give me a shout!
