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!
