Field Trip: Jane Doe’s Kitchen 新莊區的 無名女孩廚房 

Most days at the office, I just have time to gulp down a (lukewarm) bento before heading back to work.  However, one lucky day, I came to the realization that I was a tiny bit ahead of schedule, and I actually had time for a real lunch. Like one that involved non-disposable silverware.  So my assistant and I decided to pop into Jane Doe’ Kitchen for a bite and chat.  The interior of the cafe is simple, yet inviting.  Make sure to check the blackboard for the specials of the day.


I ordered a tomato and chicken toastie, and a latte.  My assistant ordered a grilled shiitake mushroom burger along with a caramel macchiato.  Both of our orders came with a side of french fries.


The bread was toasted to perfection, slathered with a (un)healthy amount of butter before hitting the grill, which gave it the most gloriously crispy texture.

Update: Since our last visit, Jane Doe has made some adjustments to the menu. Burgers are now part of their specials, and grilled sandwiches no longer come with a side of fries.  The owner mentioned this was partly to streamline the menu, and shorten the waiting time.

This time my friend and I ordered off their specials board (for her: grilled cheese with spinach and chicken, and for me: grilled cheese with spinach).

I’m happy to report that the sandwiches are still as tasty and hearty as before~ and honestly it’s probably more conducive to a work day not eat fries (and then lapse into a food coma for the rest of the afternoon).
