Taipei Cafe

Taipei Cafe’s bright space is full of small plants, postcards, and drawings of bubble tea and Chicago landmarks. And though the long beverage menu at this Lakeview Taiwanese spot suggests you’re here for the boba, you shouldn't leave without ordering any food. Their delicious popcorn chicken is salty and spicy, and each order comes with enough crispy pieces that you could entire box for a meal. But we also like the braised pork in a sweet and salty dark soy sauce that comes with rice, a hardboiled egg, pickled vegetables, string beans, and a side salad. Many people order food to go since the space isn't too big, but they have a few tables and counter-seats available.
