食采集思(shí cǎi jí sī) is a cozy joint in Xi Zhi, Taipei that serves up some casual everyday Italian fare items like thin crust pizzas &pastas made with all-natural and organic ingredients.

All dishes are freshly made-to-order.

I’m familiar with the Zhong Xiao East Road in Taipei, one of the most popular areas among young people for nightlife and where one readily orders one glass too many at night.

I’ve been sober since my stroke last year, so when I learned that this one is in Xi Zhi, not the usual Zhong Xiao East Road, I’m almost relieved.

Since the withdrawal from alcohol, I’ve also become a half vegetarian and opt for healthier choices when it comes to food because I need to watch my diet and live a healthy lifestyle at all times to avoid a second stroke, which I am entitled to at a much higher chance than a regular healthy person.

Driving from Mucha( Wen Shan District), it takes us only half an hour to get to the restaurant, and with bless, we get a parking spot right in front of the front door. I’m sure if you have a crazy early schedule as I do, you’ll find parking as convenient as us

Teddy, a life-sized stuffed bear, was sitting there facing towards the street as we parked right in front of the restaurant at 5:00 pm sharp for our reservation. I call him Teddy because he’s the same Teddy who I had to cry over for several times before I finally convinced my parents to bring home.

He looks all cool and just chilling, but I can sense him secretly laughing at our parallel parking skills.

The interior is not over-lavishly decorated.

A musical soundtrack of “Take Me Home, Country Road,” by John Denver provides a casual atmosphere yet with a classy touch at the same time when it’s played with piano.

The place has a rustic-country concept. Stone floor & wooden walls are decorated with vine plants hanging down the wall, keeping with the store’s “natural & organic” concept.

There is a small second-floor dining area which is redesigned from the owner’s original room. With minimal renovation, the area preserves its cozy sense of “home.”

The menu is hand drawn/ and includes a variety selection of food items. From pizzas to pastas and even hot-pot.

Of course, we have to try the classics. pizzas are around $250 NT each and can be split into two flavours for one order, perfect for sharing. We split one with Country Wild Mushrooms flavour & Mexican flavour. Because pizzas in Taiwan usually involve heavy cheese, we choose the “Organic Kumquat-Lemon Tea” to flush it down with a simple salad

The Mushroom half is spread with thin mushroom slices evenly on top of the cheese layer

The Mexican half includes healthy toppings like olives, pepper, and vegetarian ham. The Jalapeño adds just the right amount of kick to it. I personally liked the Mexican side better. If Jalapeño alone is not enough for spicy food lovers, a house-made hot-pepper oil is available to kick it up a notch. I drizzled mine with lots.

All pizza crusts from the restaurant are made with olive oil instead of butter.

Fresh and organic ingredients with no artificial additives leave us feeling refreshed and not overly stuffed

After the meal.

My only regret is not trying an espresso from the seemingly great coffee machine on the first floor.
