Built by three like-minded young men out of Taiwan pine from their hometown of Guguan, Forestpath is a laid-back place for customers to relax in. Participating in cooking competitions to support themselves while they were still students, the owners strengthened their cooking skills and now offer food all day, including spaghetti, handmade burgers, entrees topped with baked cheese, and vegetables (NT$180-360). The bright, spacious store has reasonable prices and a section for kids. --By Niang Chen, translated by Eva Liao
