PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸
5/5 Pappa Curry Laksa NT$280
Wow. If you’ve never had Malaysian food before, please do yourself a “flavor” and go try out PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸. I love curry, so naturally I had to try to the Pappa Curry Laksa and it’s one of the best dishes I’ve ever tried. PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸 is so good, it inspired me to take a trip to Kuala Lumpur and after eating there, I know that Papparich is among the highest level restaurants for Malaysian cuisine.
5/5 Pappa Curry Laksa NT$280
Wow. (cue Owen Wilson). “Wow.” It’s super good. I’ve been to PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸 several times and can’t help getting the Pappa Curry Laksa over and over. Luckily I go with friends so I can sample other dishes so I can definitely confirm this is my favorite item at PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸 and I could probably eat it every day.
The curry laksa is thick, full of flavor, spicy and includes noodles, super tender chicken, fried tofu, bean sprouts and a hard boiled egg. You can cut the chicken with just your chopsticks! Each bit is infused with deliciousness
5/5 Pappa Tissue Prata (roti) NT$130
This thing is massive on size and taste. If you’ve never had this before, it’s completely hallow on the inside and is presented as a giant standing cone. It’s like a fried Asian tortilla with sugar all over it. Yes, sugar. This is a great after meal treat…or if you want to get crazy like me you can dip it in your Curry Laksa.
The Pappa Tissue Prata (roti) at PappaRich Malaysian Cuisine 金爸爸 is crispy along the edges of the roti, and soft along the inside. To eat it, don’t break off pieces from the top of the cone. That’s what I did and is the worst way to try and eat it. Just rip small pieces from the side and the roti should definitely be eaten the same day Since you are given a lot, I took some home and tried to eat it the next day…completely hard.
4/5 Chili Crab Fried Rice NT$260
It’s pretty good and full of flavor, but the dish is more sweet than spicy. When I hear “chili crab” I’m searching for a spicy kick.
4/5 Teh Tarik (iced) NT$100
This is the famous milk-tea style drink of Malaysia that is typically served with a lot of foam. It was good and not too sweet which I liked.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
