--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Erica Yu

This highly-recommended, Japanese-style cake roll shop is located in a small alley near ZhongShan MRT Station's Exit 1. From Exit 1, you will see the Milk King Store in the direction of Alley 4, Lane 8. Behind this shop, turn left, then right, and the bright-red shop facade should appear. Shop owner Nick first offered us a plain fruitcake roll. It tasted natural, with a rich egg aroma. Nick notes that, although the eggs he uses are from local country chickens and are not big, the proportion of egg yolk to egg white is 1:1 -- which is considered the best ratio for cake baking. There are 10 different flavors available in this shop, seven of which were invented by Nick himself. These include the Plain Cheese Roll, Plain Yoghurt Roll and Tiramisu Roll, among other mouth-watering and yummy options. The cakes run NT$70 for a slice with entire cake rolls priced at NT$350 (advance phone orders are suggested). The cake rolls are baked daily and, if you take one home, it is suggested that they be consumed within two days. Teas, coffees and other light meals are also available.
