The Italian-inspired restaurant Alleycats, is a stone oven pizzeria tossing up some of the best pizzas in Taiwan.
Alleycats was inspired by a painting of a cat known as The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dali. What this restaurant lacks in variety makes up for in quality. Alleycats takes an interesting spin on the typical Neopolitan pizzeria.
If you're an avid supporter of the thin-based pizza, Allecats will woo you all the way. The hand tossed dough and fresh made marinara makes Alleycats a must on any travellers' dining list, when traveling in Taiwan. Care for a glass of wine or beer with your fold-over calzone and bruschetta? Alleycats offers their own line of both beer and wine, which can be easily paired with one of their hand-tossed pastas or delicious pizzas. A note though, that the Alleycats' house wine is nothing exceptional and you may want to get it by the glass before committing to a bottle. Although it comes in affordable, we're still not convinced it's good value. If you have a sweet tooth make sure to check out the menu for Alleycats' own selection of gelato.
One of the few restaurants serving dinner passed nine in Taipei city, this is a great option for a hearty late-night meal. Alleycats has a number of branches in prominent parts of the city. Among the favourites are the Huashan Parl venue - with outdoor benches, it has a true beer garden feel - and the Yongkang Street venue.
