{taipei} infamous chiate pineapple cakes

Pineapple cakes are a Taiwanese specialty. ChiaTe may or may not be the best, but it’s certainly one of the most famous! This place is packed almost all the time. If you don’t call ahead for your order, there are days that you wait in a line outside the door to get into this place that’s complete with security guards, people who only answer the phone, and a row of cashiers. It used to be that this place only sold a few products, just pineapple cakes, wife cookies, etc. Nowadays (since it’s hit it big), the varieties are endless, including the type of cakes. Aside from pineapple, I just love the cranberry version. I think I appreciate how it’s not that sweet and you can actually see the number of cranberries smushed inside the cake.
