Eddy's Cantina Mexican Restaurant, Tianmu

It’s been a while since anyone posted about Eddy’s Cantina in this thread–though I seem to remember seeing some positive comments about Eddy’s in other more recent threads on Mexican food in Taiwan. Well, I finally had a chance to head up to Tianmu (Tienmu) last week to sample some of Eddy’s family-style Mexican fare.

Since many of the 358 previous posts in this thread already rave about his Mexican cooking, which is already highly regarded in the forumosan community, I instead wanted to post about a recent development that I stumbled into: Eddy now serves a kickass pancake brunch. I was happy to give it a try earlier today.

I’ve been in Taiwan over a decade and this is hands down the best pancake breakfast I’ve found. Fluffy pancakes served with butter and maple syrup can be paired with deftly scrambled eggs (I think sunny side up is also possible–poached eggs were on the menu but apparently not available when I visited); sausages (which I did not try); or bacon (the best I’ve had in Taiwan). Washed back with serviceable black coffee (some institutional roast that’s no great shakes–but to their credit they kept offering to fill my mug), this was a very satisfying meal, with exceptionally friendly and engaged service.

I believe this pancake brunch is served on Sundays only from 11:30am to 3:00pm at Eddy’s Cantina Tianmu (Tienmu) 1 location: 1, Alley 3, Lane 450, Zhongshan North Road Section 6 in Taipei City (tel 02-2873-7612).

A warm thank you to Eddy and Jo and their delightful generous young daughter for preparing and serving such great food. I’ll definitely be back!


Went to Eddy’s Tienmu off off Zhongshan Bei Lu Section 6 recently.

Good atmosphere, friendly staff, tasty food, indoor/outdoor seating. Everything, soft tacos, hard tacos, and enchiladas all hit the spot. The taco shells are made with flour and not corn which is not my favorite but the food is good.

I’ll definitely go back when I’m in the area even though I don’t get to Tienmu much.

I heard there is another branch on East Tienmu Road and that they have some sports on TV but don’t know anything about it.

Returned a second time to Zhongshan Bei Lu location. Really hits the spot. Fish taco and chicken enchilada with side dishes for lunch NT$250. And it’s a proper restaurant unlike many Mexican places in Taipei.

I love Eddy’s. Great beers on tap too. I go there for lunch nearly every Friday, because I always have calls to take before picking up my daughter and the number 2 location is open until 3:30. Chicken Enchiladas FTW.

Every Wednesday all you can eat in 90 minutes for $480?!

I eat at the Tianmu Eddy’s Cantina more than any sane person should. It’s great every time.


Put one in Neihu please

Do you have condiments on the tables ?


Hey there, love neihu, putting in some steps to make some moves very soon. Would love to.


Hi there, so not sure if this is a serious question or not but here we go. We make all of our salsas, sauces and tortillas from scratch in house. So when we serve the food, we serve salsas and homemade hot sauces with them. They are made fresh multiple times a week. So by condiments like Tabasco, ketchup, mustard we don’t have on the tables and we don’t serve them. Well we do have ketchup the we serve when one orders a side of fries.


He’s kinda joking Eddy. There is a whinge thread about restos not having condiments on tables. He was riffing on that.

Figured as much but ya we don’t have them as we make all of our own.

Thanx we actually make EVERYTHING in house. Unfortunately that means that staff turnover is murder cuz its more labour intensive
