Boîte de Bijou TaipeiPosted By Jennifer Ho Jul 07 2011 · 0 comments · Snacks & Street Food
Boîte de Bijou is a small bakery cum patisserie located just off the side of the National Taiwan Normal University. With a sign as discrete as theirs, it would be easy to miss the small place – I was totally oblivious of it the first few times I walked by. The air conditioning inside blasts customers, giving them a much needed relief from the sweltering outdoors (usually at least 35C and humid), so that’s a nice plus. The matcha green tea cake was recommended by the lady inside and it didn’t disappoint though surprisingly the matcha flavor wasn’t as intense as I was expecting. It was quite subtle and not overwhelming at all, nicely balanced with the thicker, harder crust on the bottom. This is a sweet little spot anyone can hit, especially convenient for those studying at the university.
