La Caja de Musica

La Caja de Musica is a hidden gem in Taipei, and one somewhat hard to find, but definitely worth the search. The friendly staff serve mouthwatering tapas and other dishes of Spanish cuisine. It also offers a good selection of Spanish wines and German beers.


The regional cuisine is a mix of Chinese, Japanese, and aboriginal Hakka styles. It is also influenced by its island geography and the scarcity of arable land. Fish and poultry, therefore, play a major role in local cooking. However, the base of all dishes is made up of seasoning varieties particular to Asian cooking, such as soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil, supplemented with black beans, peanuts, chilli peppers, and a local variety of basil.
