Getting there: Located on the third floor of J-Cube, overlooking the indoor skating rink, this eatery is quite easy to find. Parking is available in the mall's basement, or a short walk from Jurong East MRT interchange station. We parked for free (first two hours only) at IMM Jurong and took the free shuttle bus to J-Cube.
Ambience: Decorated in bright colours reminescent of the gaudy-coloured cafes in Taiwan, this place exudes a casual and welcoming feel with its open-concept. Wooden seats and stools make it a little more uncomfortable to linger, which is really weird as it's a nice place to hang out at. Choose a quiet table, or bar counter directly adjacent to (and overlooking) the skating rink and be entertained.
Customer service: Staffed by young adults, which adds to the vibe of the place. They constantly move around the cafe and are attentive to your every request (unlike in most larger restaurants). Knowledgeable and interactive, although they could do more to introduce their specialities to first-time patrons.
Menu: A mix of Taiwanese street food/snacks like Shilin Night Market Crispy-fried Chicken Chop ($8.90), Keelung Night Market Oyster Omelette ($9.90), Shilin Night Market Vermincelli with Oyster and Pig's Intestine ($9.90), Tainan Coffin Toast ($10.90) and main courses like Nantou Taiwanese-style Braised Minced Pork Rice, Changhua Braised Pork Belly Rice, Tainan Danzai Noodle Soup with Minced Pork (all $10.50). The taste of the food though authentically Taiwanese, is however quite ordinary for the menu prices. Suitable if you're headed to Taiwan soon, or are suffering from withdrawal symptoms after returning from Taiwan, although you might also miss the night-market prices.
Drinks: What is a Taiwanese cafe without their popular drinks and desserts? There is a small range of iced teas ($4.00), fruit teas ($4.50), hot desserts (from $4.00) and shaved ice desserts ($8.90). Again the portions are quite small compared to other similar offerings.
Verdict: Nice place to visit once in a while, with its quiet laidback vibe. However, prices can be quite discouraging for repeat visits.
If you are reminiscing your last trip to taipei, then you should head on down to Eat at Taipei in which i was also very surprised to find some really yummy but uncommon selections on their menu. Adding to that is the very interesting location of this cafe with plenty of seats, right next to the ice-skating rink in JCube.
It was a lazy saturday and we've decided upon watching happy skaters wheezing pass us while we dine at EAT AT TAIPEI. The entry was confusing as nobody was at the counter to lead us, (looking understaffed), the cafe wasn't even half filled with people however the staff was busy walking up and down and we sat on a table overlooking the skating ring. Well, they have bar seats where you are right next to the rink however judging by my teenie weenie skirt and indecent exposure is not recommended, as such we stuck to our spacious square table.
The selection on the menu was pretty interesting with a good selection of street food and staples made famous by the night markets in Taiwan. We were ecstatic and though we loved fried stinky tofu and oyster vermicelli we decided on the Braised Pork Rice and Da chang Bao Xiao chang (Grilled taiwanese sausage with rice).
1) Braised Minced Pork Rice ($10.50), was a little too little and was too salty. Not too yummy with no wow factor. Just averagely good.
2) Grilled Taiwanese Sausage ($8.90), was overpriced and the oyster sauce added was inappropriate and salty, though the look was good but was not even 20% close to what was served in taiwan, lets not talk about the famous yummy Da Chang Bao Xiao Chang.
3) Fresh Soy Milk ($3.50) was not fresh as a matter of fact it tasted like instant soy milk, what a let down.
4) Wet Tissues ($0.60) in which we didn't use. We were not aware that they charge for wet tissues and well there were no dry tissues available too.
5) NO WATER SERVED.... yes, they don't serve plain water, not even from the tap... good grief.....
Will not return, however we give them the benefit of the doubt that the other stuffs on the menu might be good. Dessert selection was not good too but nice deco and good effort. Staff was pretty efficient and did what they should do.
Cashier was a counter not within the sitting area, so its pretty not obvious... Silly me actually walked entrance to entrance twice to make payment....
