The Lishui Street Alleycat’s is the original of a chain of pizza places around Taipei. This year is its 10th anniversary, and it is still home to the original namesake cat, Alley. They’ve tried bringing in other cats, but Alley didn’t get along with them. Now, there are two cats at the Tianmu branch and at least one at the Huashan branch. It has not been confirmed whether the seven other branches have cats: http://www.alleycatspizza.com/alleycats/Web/Locations/index.aspx?StoreNo=4. I went here with my friend Rebecca, and thanks to her for getting much better pictures of Alley than I could.

麗水街Alleycat’s是原本的分店; 臺北現在有十間分店. 今年是他們第十週年, 他們還有原本的貓, Alley. Alley跟其他貓會吵架, 所以麗水街只有她. 天母店有兩隻, 華山有一隻. 不知道其他的分部有沒有貓. 謝謝我朋友Rebecca幫我拍照:

We had garlic bread (NT$100), which comes with a very good Caesar dressing dip, and a Napoletana pizza (tomato, goat cheese, olives and spinach NT$470). The pizza was delicious and there are many varieties to choose from. There are also plenty of drink choices available. I had a tequila sunrise. 我們吃香烤大蒜麵包(NT$100)還有那不勒斯披薩(生鮮番茄、羊奶起士、鯷魚、橄欖和菠菜NT$470). 披薩很好吃, 有很多口味可以選. 還有很多飲料. 我喝墨西哥日出 .

Cat themed decorations are all around, some of them cute, others a little creepy.

他們有很多貓主題裝飾, 又的很可愛, 又的一點可怕:

Zabu: Part 2

Address: 臺北市士林區中山北路7段175號 (No MRT nearby)

Hours: 12:00-23:00

Minimum cost per person: NT$120

Months ago, I went to this cafe’s Shida address as listed in the book and found that it had moved. Since the place it moved to was an hour away by public transportation, I didn’t get around to going there until now. This is another “cafe with a cat” rather than a “cat cafe”. In the book, they had two cats, but they only have one now, and it wasn’t particularly friendly.

CIMG0844The cafe had a nice atmosphere, with a good variety of music and artistic decorations.

Before 5:30, they have the “afternoon tea” special, buy any drink and add a dessert for NT$60. I had an iced americano and pumpkin pie.CIMG0848 It was good, but not really worth going out of the way for.
