[Taipei] Melange Cafe (米朗琪咖啡館)

Happy 2016.  2015 has been a whirlwind for me.  I expect no less in 2016.  Thank you for the likes, comments, and shares on my blog posts.  I would have stopped blogging if not for you.  I still takes lots of photos when I visit restaurants but I rarely find time to write about them much anymore.  The best way to keep up with me these days is Instagram.  I will still try my best to keep this blog going but I can't really promise more than 1 post a month... So since my Taiwan collection remains the most popular of all, I will continue with this series even though I live in Macau and work in Hong Kong but travel around APAC most of the time.  LOL.

Anyways, this post is about Melange, which is quite famous for its waffles.  My first visit was for exactly that.

My last visit, I actually brought my co-worker (from Sydney) not because we wanted waffles but he wanted salad (and a good coffee) for lunch.  The place is within walkable distance from our office and easy enough to find, even for a foreigner.  Plus, there are a number of cafes nearby so if Melange is full, there is always an alternative.

My co-worker said it has been a challenge for him to find good restaurants for sandwiches and salads as most Asians eat rice / noodles for lunch so.  He actually said this was the best salad he had in Asia and went there two days in a row!  (I didn't accompany him the second day as I wanted rice... LOL!)  But, next time you have a Western colleague visiting, you will know where to take him/her :)

I didn't take photos of the sandwiches as they look quite normal but I did take some photos of the coffee.

And here are the other photos I took of my waffle from my other visit.  It actually take more like cake to me than waffle and very filling.  Best if you have a friend to share.
