PeterPan in godforsaken Linkou also has a white Baker. Must say their raison/dark wholewheat 55NTD bread is 2 :thumbsup:

Tempting offer from Micheleru. Sourdough tinted ciabatta is my favorite. Do you sell in-store somewhere?

A bit of balsamica oil & vinegar, some ripen tomatoes and real mozzarella and I simply call it La dolce vita :lick:

I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song

I really like the bread at Bread Tree in Da'an District, Ren'ai Rd., Section 4, Lane 151, #23 (麵包樹 大安區仁愛路四段151巷23號). It's a short walk from Zhongxiao Dunhua MRT station. They have some wonderful varieties with free tasting. The three-cup chicken bread is especially tasty, but the other bread is also very good. http://www.facebook.com/pages/%E9%BA%B5 ... 6789864882

Now if only I could find decent bread


The french baguette from Flavor Field in some Sogo basements (zhishan, Fuxing) is pretty good , just make sure it's not to hard, taiwanese tend to pass on it.

Thanks for the advice, but I do not consider baguettes as decent bread. :lol:

A baguette is the "fast food" of breads, in terms of quality. Today I was at SOGO and saw what they have there... There is no bread, according to my standards.

This is bread:

And this is how it's used properly:

Yum yum!

Uma orsel has good bread.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

No pr0nography, please! :cry: Ah, jamon del bueno....

Yep, MM, my bread comes either from Uma Orsel -best European style, Peter has introduced a lot of new items, really yummy, great for sandwiches; or the organic bakery at Tianhou -not that tasty or varied, but at least it is safe!

Is that Oma Ursel, and is the address in this linked story right? Are there any other locations?

Yes. For the people who live in Shi-Da or take the Xindian line, the most convenient location is the exclusive bakery store -the others are the combo restaurant with bakery. This one:
Oma Ursel's German Bakery - Xīnhài Store 辛亥店
No. 3, Lane 34, Section 1 Xīnhài Road
It is practically kitty corner to Taipower Building MRT station/across from Guting Elementary.

Then there is Goethe Restaurant -same chain:
Goethe Gourmet Gasthaus
No. 11, Lane 283, Sec.3, Roosevelt Rd., Taipei
This one is great for afternoon tea, IMHO. 100nt and you get herbal tea and a tasty sausage in a bun.

And now they have a Tianmu "store" -within the Takashimaya department store:
Oma Ursel's German Bakery - Tiānmǔ Store 天母店
B1, No. 55, Section 2 Zhōngchéng Road
