With two convenient locations: one at Yongkang Street 永康街 and one near National Taiwan University台大, 希臘左巴 is a restaurant serving Greek and Mediterranean food, worth to try if you ask me.

Oma Ursel’s German Restaurant & Bakery, Taipei

It’s quite rare to walk pass a German restaurant in Taipei I must say, so when I do, I can’t help but to try it.. With several branches in Taipei, Oma’s Restaurant & Bakery is one of those rare ones..! They are open for lunch, afternoon tea as well as dinner. Even though dining in here is a bit to the pricier side, but well worth it for first-timer.
