Plant-Based Cheese Tasting | Xiao Xiao x Moon Cheese

Xiao Xiao is an understated little vegetarian open kitchen/eatery nestled in an old fashioned building on Hankou St, between the Ximen and Beimen area. This part of Taipei is brimming with history and cute little bars, coffee shops and eateries like Xiao Xiao are tucked into some of these beautiful brick buildings.

Xiao Xiao does offer regular Japanese-inspired breakfast sets and afternoon tea with a menu that varies daily (and always with some vegan options). Excellent fair trade coffee is also available.

But Xiao Xiao is really known for it’s events and classes from vegan baking to vegetarian Thai that attract both locals and travellers looking for unique experiences.

The layout inside is completely open-plan so you can grab a seat alongside the kitchen bar and watch the magic happen.

On this visit to Xiao Xiao we were collaborating on a vegan cheese tasting event with our locally made Moon Cheese, cashew based artisan cheese.

Each guest at the event received a tasting plate consisting of five varieties of the cultured cheese; the three classic flavours: Sun-dried Tomato, Brie and Cheddar along with two specials Cranberry Rose, and a Spirulina Blue Cheese.

The plating was divine and carefully thought out, with each cheese paired with a complimentary condiment such as a sweet beetroot sauce, or a slice of fig.

The most exciting thing about this event are the numbers of people who aren’t vegan attending, that are curious about vegan cheese and how this can be a way for them to lessen their impact on the environment and the animals.

This kind of hand crafted vegan cheese is still relatively new in Taiwan, and so it is great to see people embracing it as a way to reduce their dairy intake, and also appreciate the cheese on it’s own.

If you’re interested in visiting Xiao Xiao; you can see a list of their upcoming classes and events on their Facebook Page or see the contact details below.
