BOITE DE BIJOU

(02) 3322-2461
111, MinSheng E Rd., Sec. 3
Hours:10 am-9 pm
(Closed Mondays.)

--By Jerri Graham, translated by Ann Li

A real French baguette, with a crunchy outside that breaks apart to reveal a moist and chewy center, is often hard to find outside of Europe, let alone in Taipei. That is until now. Boite de Bijou, a newly opened patisserie behind Shi Da University is the real deal when it comes to French pastries. Offering preservative-free breads and pastries, the freshness of Boite de Bijou's goods can be tasted in every bite. At about two feet long, the Olive Panini (NT$100) should not be missed. While perfect alone, it's the type of bread that cries out to mop up a rich tomato sauce or to be slathered with butter. Another must is the extremely generous Brioche. At NT$45, it's perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea. While half of the store showcases the best breads and pastries this side of the Seine, the other is filled with a breathtakingly beautiful selection of cakes, handmade chocolates, and candies. Boite de Bijou is not a dieter's delight, but it is a taste of France on a rue in Taipei.
