If you are manga or anime lover, pretty sure you know One Piece or perhaps you’re also a fan of the Straw Hats Pirates. If so and you’re in Taipei, PEG Coffee should be your next destination!
PEG Coffee has been established for quite some time, so on one cloudy afternoon we were so curious to give it a visit. Although it’s located not in the most happening area of Taipei, it gives you a nice view of Taipei 101. Unfortunately, on that particular day, we cannot see the top of 101 because of misty sky.
Just by standing in front of their door, you can know this is a “special” coffee shop. Let’s enter this “New World” coffee shop!
Going inside this coffee shop, we soon saw how well decorated this coffee was. By “well decorated” we mean that it’s full of One Piece’s action figures, posters, dolls, and other cute/cool ornaments.
The owner also put at least one action figure on each table and we got Chopper on our table, yeay!
It’s now so crowded when we came, since there’re only three groups of customer including us. However, it looks like there was only one person handling all of this coffee shop’s operation because that one man said we need to wait for a while before we can order and enjoy our beverages. Well, no problem we guessed as we could check their menu and think about our order perhaps. Sadly, it’s not the case. Soon, we realized they only had one menu for the entire coffee shop :(.
Fortunately, there are a lot of things to be seen and here are some of them:
It’s our time to order and we chose Sumatra Mandheling for me and caramel latte for my partner plus chocolate tart for our stomach :).
So far, PEG Coffee brewed us the best coffee we ever had in Taipei (well, don’t quote us for this since we haven’t visited a lot coffee shops in Taipei). Hence, if you love One Piece and want to spend your afternoon in not-so-crowded area in Taipei, make sure you check this one out. Located near Liuzhangli MRT station, we think this themed cafe deserves more exposure among foreigners/tourists or at least for those Luffy‘s fans.
