Hole in the Wall Specialty Spaghetti in Taipei: J&J Spaghetti Studio (J&J義大利麵工坊)

On July 6, 2012 by admin

Serious about your spaghetti? Looking for a no frills spot where you can enjoy the simple pleasure of some really good pasta?

Well, there is a secret little hole in the wall specialty spaghetti restaurant next to Shuanglian Market, which may be right up your alley.

J & J Spaghetti Studio


J&J Spaghetti Studio operates a quaint little operation.  The small shop is so small that you are likely to walk by it a dozen times before you actually realize it’s there.  The restaurant has a grand total of 12 seats, half of which are at the counter, so you are likely to be squeezed in next to someone you don’t know. This is not the place to go for a romantic date, but if you are looking for some great pasta, the chef here knows his stuff, and he isn’t going to mess around.

Chicken and Tomato Sauce NT$110

The simple menu is broken down into different pasta sauce groups, including tomato sauce, cream sauce, shop specialty sauce (including a curry flavoured option), and white wine sauce.

The only thing on the menu besides spaghetti is a bowl of the chef’s soup.  Nothing else.

Each patron gets a glass of sweet cold ice tea when they sit down, and are served their dish soon after ordering.

House Specialty Bacon with Pumpkin Cream Sauce NT$110


The prices aren’t hard to remember, everything is NT$110, amazing value for the quality of the pasta.  Oh yes, and that other item on the menu; the soup is NT$30.
