Afterhours Taipei



Welcoming our newest contributor Adinda of Wolves Table.. we are lucky to have her as our Taipei correspondent, sharing with us all the hidden gems and bringing us around her neighbourhood. Thank you Adinda for the beautiful first post and we look forward to many more.. of course in the mean time, her instagram is the place to go for more eye candy!

Taipei is the Queen (King?) of hidden cafes and tiny back alleys filled with 'secret' restaurants. If you stay here for a couple of days and only go where the crowds are going, you'll probably miss all the gems. Heck, if you don't speak Mandarin you'll probably never find it unless you accidentally bumped into one just by randomly passing by.

I know this because I've lived in Taipei for almost two years already and i'm still discovering new places to go, eat or hang. Places that are located in streets where I passed by a million times, but apparently never took that one left or right turn to find that one place. Kinda frustrating. But it also makes a wander through the city super adventurous.

Today i'd like to take you to this place called Afterhours. It's a popular place among people in the neighborhood. It's a cafe that offers a selection of tea, coffee, desserts, bagels, soups but also some Japanese interior goods. The left side of the cafe is dedicated to Japanese plates, pots and some cutlery. The right side is where you can find the seating area, Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese magazines for reading and where you can eat, drink, do some work or just relax.
