--By Rebekah Godfrey & Matt Gibson Translated by Annie Liu

In the crook of the elbow where ChangRung Road turns into ChongDe Road hides an inconspicuous little Chinese grocery. Absence of an English sign or name has almost completely hidden this gem of a grocer from Tainan's foreign community. This shop is a baker's paradise. Stocking pans, powders, mixes, nuts and all other kinds of obscure baking knick-knacks you'll find everything you need (and a bunch of stuff you didn't even know you needed) for that triple-layer, upside-down, pineapple cheesecake you're been dying to make. The import selection isn't huge, but it holds a good variety and packs many items that this writer hasn't seen anywhere else, like Madras Curry (NT$90 per 450g), tomato paste (NT$46 per can) and real whipping cream (NT$120 per 1L). The large refrigerated section boasts a dangerous selection of exotic cheeses and caviar. The fridge is also home to the cheapest bulk cheese this writer has seen in Taiwan, with 1kg of shredded mixed (cheddar and mozzarella) cheese for only NT$200.
