A 15-minute walk from the train station will take you to
(61 Jiaoxi Rd. Section 5, Jiaoxi Township) where you can have your fill of all sorts of nibbles made of… chili pepper. All products are ranked from a mild level one to the fiery level seven that sets your tongue ablaze. If you dare, try the strawberry chili ice cream, but be warned: even the slightest lick is an explosion of fire and ice.
Tread along Jiaoxi Road and in no time you’ll stumble upon Cake Nobel (68 Jiaoxi Rd. Section 4, Jiaoxi Township). Foodies have made the strawberry pannacotta swiss roll ($36) one of the must-eats in all of Taiwan—and who could possibly resist fresh strawberries and buttery cream wrapped in an airy sponge cake? Save some space for their fluffy longan cupcakes, studded with the sweet dried fruit.
