Taipei Boasts Authentic German Bakery

Wendel's Bakery and Bistro stretches from a past all the way back from Berlin in 1932 to its present day shop on Taipei's Zhongshan North Road, and with nearly one hundred years of family tradition backing it, you'd better believe it's as authentic a German experience as you'll ever hope to find in Taipei or even Germany for that matter!

Wendel’s Bakery and Bistro, since it was first established in 1999 on Taipei’s Zhongshan North Road (中山北路) Sec 6, has become something of an institution both for foreign and local residents of the city. It is one of only a handful of foreign run and owned restaurants with such deep roots in Taiwan, but as Michael Wendel is also keen to point out, these roots extend all the way back to Germany and the family bakery that opened in 1932. This unusual combination of close ties with the culinary tradition of his home, and his strong bonds with the local community will be celebrated in Essence and Heritage of Culinary Art, an activity organized by the Chinese Gourmet Association (中華美食交流協會) to be held on Friday.
