Salt Peanuts Cafe and Showroom

Taipower MRT
23 Lane 60 Taishun Street

After arriving in Taipei and eating street food for about three days straight, my body and soul needed something that resembled home a bit.  I took to my guidebook to seek out something comfortably western.  

A nice cold beer and a sandwich would do. 

 I found a few different places that looked good in the area.  Their names were: Bongos, Grandma Nitti's, and Salt Peanuts.  Such great names.  I flagged down a taxi and pointed to the street addresses.  I later realized that I was only a few blocks from all three restaurants and could have walked, but hey thats being a new girl in a foreign land for you..  


The only one that he could recognize was the address of Salt Peanuts.  So Salt Peanuts it was.

And for that, I could not have been more grateful.

I have been back since and found that not only do they have lovely home made baguettes for their flavorful sandwiches, but they also have a mighty fine cheese plate.  This girl needs to know where to find a cheese plate (smoked Gouda, Brie, and Manchego), and Salt Peanuts does not disappoint!  

Not only is the food incredible, but they have a good selection of Belgian beers, a good wine selection, and a gallery space in the back.  The atmosphere is great; surrounded by dark wooded walls and floors, and the local pop art gives it a unique and special feeling that I haven't felt anywhere else here. 

A good combination of great food, good booze, funky pop art, in a cozy atmosphere.
