One of my favorite places in Taipei is the Zhongshan (中山)area.  It’s not as crowded as some areas in Taipei, and there is always something new to discover in the many lanes and alleyways off the main road.  The time, we visited Paper & Tea, which is a combination eatery and homewares shop.

I’m very into feature walls lately~ I think I’m subconsciously taking notes (and photos) of all my favorite ones, so I can have an assortment of ideas for when it is time to put one into my own home. The feature wall at Paper & Tea are quite striking… I’m not sure how I feel about the color combination, but it’s certainly pleasant enough.

 

The space is divided into two sections, with opening shelving separating the cafe from the store.
I ordered a fruit tea, to go with my lunch. They were kind of enough to bring us two glasses, so we could share the pot.  The glasses came with some berries on the bottom, and the tea filter on the side.  The tea comes to the table perfectly brewed, and if you would like a refill, they will pop the filter back into the pot and replenish with hot water.
My friend Laura and I both ordered Dutch babies.  Laura ordered the savory version~ with mushrooms, and topped with crisp greens and a poached egg.
In my mind, Dutch babies have to be sweet.  So I decided to get the one topped with Nutella, berries and whipped cream. The Dutch baby at Paper & Tea is perfectly crisp, yet tender, and especially delicious hot off the pan. I vaguely remembered learning how to make Dutch babies in the 6th grade… and after having these, I think I may have to find a recipe for them.
After lunch, I had a quick browse through the store section. I saw a few items that I was quite curious about, such as this cast iron coffee scoop.
And… this mini paella pan. I almost bought this pan, but I ended up putting it back because I couldn’t tell from the label or informational booklet if the pan would work on an induction stove, or is oven safe.
On my way out, I spotted another item that has always been on my wish list~ the Miffy lamp!  One day, this lamp will be sitting in my living room too.
I enjoyed Paper & Tea for the delicious Dutch babies, and also for the visual inspiration.  Definitely adding this place to my list of favorite places to visit in the area.

Enjoy!
