No best bakery? Sure hope I'm not the only one who likes pastries around these parts.

That's very Taipei-centric.

That's kinda inevitable when people from other cities can't be bothered to vote.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Ah ah...I see.
I thought there were options which were only limited to Taipei or something.

Constructive input is always appreciated.

Note each category had the caveat: "If you chose "Other" please be sure to post the name and I will count them manually for the final poll results."

engerim did exactly that for The BBQ House (Hsinchu) and they ended up winning the best steak award.

Maybe you will do the same this year?
