I lived in Taipei for almost three years before discovering G & G in a quiet alley near Swenson's in Tianmu. G & G has been around for over 25 years and gets its fair share of traffic. G & G carries Western staples like cereal, salad dressing, crackers, diet soda, granola bars, cake mixes and frosting. You can also find Slim-fast products, Crisco shortening, brownie mixes, Milky Way bars and Jell-o pudding. What makes G & G unique is their in-house deli. With imported cheeses and meats available, you can feast on a tasty sandwich while reading a newspaper in their cozy dining area. Sandwiches run from NT$135 to NT$155, and you can choose from a variety of homemade breads. Bagels, soups, salads and homemade yogurt are also on the menu. Most of the imported products are located in the basement, which also boasts a large selection of wines. G & G even offers cooking classes only in Chinese -- but don't let that stop you! Why not sign up for a class and learn how to make delicacies like sorbetto di mango and salmone alle seme costolette? Pick up some Apple Jacks while you're at it.
