You know it’s legit when you literally can’t find any internet presence about this place in English. Trust, I’ve typed in every kind of romanization imaginable. Its legitimacy is further validated by 176 Google reviews (nearly all in Chinese) and a Google search where the entire first page is made up of Taiwanese blogs. Clearly, we have ventured into a remarkably local territory.

Go here for: flakey fresh pastries, grab one to go, or grab a box to bring to friends
Order this: the “crab shell” pastry (蟹殼黃，xie ke huang) if you’re feeling savory, black sesame pastry (黑芝麻酥餅，hei zhi ma su bing) if you’re feeling sweet (or both, if you’re feeling hungry)
Amount of time to spend: it’s take out only, and they usually have a bunch of pastries ready to go, so it’s in an out in a matter of minutes
When to come: in the morning, for a full selection
Getting here: Take the MRT to CKS Memorial Hall Station, exit 2 (by Nanmen Market), and then turn into the lane around the corner from JinFeng
