--By Andrew Addison, translated by Annie Liu

Stepping through the doors of Cafe Strada on JhongJeng 2nd Rd, one could easily imagine entering a small bistro in Prague, Rome or any other European cosmopolitan center. Strada is unlike anyplace else you are likely to find. Cool Jazz plays softly, novels by Hemingway, Dostoyevsky and Miller fill the cafe's bookshelves, provocative paintings and Freudian posters line the walls, while intoxicating aromas of Italian spices and espresso fill the air. Strada offers excellent coffee and traditional Italian and European dishes, made with delicate care using only the most basic ingredients. As the owner, Zhang Xiao Wei, explains, this ensures that the natural flavours of the dishes are not overwhelmed or tainted. The Risotto Vialone Nano Gamberi and the Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce & Seafood (both NT$210) are two delicious examples of this simplistic approach. Strada also takes its coffee very seriously: "coffee is available everywhere, but if you want a real Italian Espresso, come to Strada."
