MOT

A café/gallery/restaurant/design store, the Museum of Tomorrow stocks ingenious Japanese home wares and furniture.

Music from Chinese lutes floats through the room; sunlight streams in from wood-framed windows and skylights and bamboo curtains create dappled patterns on the tatami mats. Green moss clings to the dark red-brick walls.

A classic breakfast spot.

An art house movie theater, café, and cinephile bookstore in the old U.S. ambassador’s residence.

Established in 1934, Taipei’s first Western-style restaurant.

An old-school eatery best known for its chicken soup, which is simmered in clay pot for hours.

Outstanding Sichuanese cuisine. Be sure to order the wontons in chili oil, the dry-fried green beans, and the stir-fried cabbage with pork, served with shaobing, a sesame-seed bread.
