Located on an alley of a public housing community, the Abey Road Cafe has an elegant but cheerful temperament. Looking in through its large glass windows, one cannot help but notice the classic British decor with an orange and brown color theme. At the same time, the big red front door and the relaxing outside seating area gives it a lighter feeling. This establishment also imports high-quality coffee beans from Laos, making Abbey Road Cafe the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee (NT$80-95) on a sunny afternoon with some Beatles music. --By Vincent Huang, translated by Naomi Lai
A. The Tuna, Egg and Cheese French Pancake (NT$85-125) is a fusion of Taiwanese and French styles of cuisine. A Taiwanese lumpia (spring roll) pastry is fried with eggs, then filled with tuna, onions, green peppers and cheese. The tuna is flavored with mayonnaise, giving this dish the full flavor of a white sauce. The chewy lumpia pastry and thick melted cheese also create a surprising combination. The other pancake flavor is smoked chicken.
B. In addition to the pastas (NT$160-180) and baked dishes (NT$180-200), another recommended entree is the Smoked Chicken Baguette (NT$85-115). A hand-picked baguette is baked until it is crisp and aromatic, then filled with fresh vegetables and a zesty sauce. You can also replace the baguette with whole wheat bread instead.
