High up on Mao Kong (猫空)in Taipei sits Red Wood House perched on a cliff side. This charming little cafe is decorated with antiques and handmade wooden furniture. The menu is extensive for a little cafe. Notable dishes include the Stewed Crab Meat and Tofu,...More

Came to this tea house after checking a few. We had traditional 鐡觀音 tea and few snacks。Away from the crowds a bit and a beautiful view. A good place to spend a few hours without worrying what to do. Cost? Why worry a few bucks...More

Great view and location. The menu are quite unique - drunken chicken with tea oil, fern with raw egg and braised pork with leeks. Of course, the Maokong tea! Skipped the pork as it has fat layer that is too fat. Good that the leek...More
