*UPDATE: On my second visit to Cama Cafe, the food remained good, but the service was awful. I'm not going to lower their rating, because I almost never let service affect my rating; I mainly focus on the food. My reasoning behind this stance is that maybe you got one bad waiter/waitress, they were in a bad mood, and just because one person is a @#%!, should that be held against the restaurant as a whole. However, if you're someone who gets mad easily about bad service, it might be better for you to avoid Cama Cafe. I don't usually get mad about bad service, but I don't think that I'll be returning to Cama Cafe because of my experience. There are other places you can get a better burger, pasta, etc., so it's no big loss in not returning.
Cama Cafe has low-lit lighting and and unobtrusive decor. In Japanese Cama Cafe means older brother or gang leader in slang. They offer a lot of different food choices. Their tables are also a game you would find in the old night markets and you can actually play it while you wait for your food.
I tried the BBQ bacon cheese burger, chicken pasta with pesto, salmon omelette, and brownie dessert. The BBQ bacon cheese burger was delicious. The beef pattie was cooked medium and was juicy with a nice beefy taste and unlike a lot of other BBQ burgers I've had in Taipei, there was actually enough BBQ sauce so you could taste it; it was a very good BBQ sauce too. The burger came with seasoned wedge fries which were pretty good. The chicken pasta with pesto was interesting because it tasted more like a clam sauce pesto chicken pasta. I have made clam sauce pasta many times before and know what it tastes like. However, it didn't really matter because it still tasted quite yummy. The salmon in the omelette was barely cooked and tasted very much like an omelette I had in Japan at a place called Tomago To Watashi (The Egg & I). It was creamy tasting and was pretty good. It came with a fried potato pattie, a salad with yummy dressing (Japanese salad dressings are the best), and a crescent that was perfectly light and fluffy -- wish it would've came with a little butter.
The brownie dessert consisted of two scoops of vanilla ice-cream with a little cherry syrup, whipped-cream, an Oreo on top, brownie chunks around it, croutons scattered around the brownie chunks, and a little chocolate sauce drizzled on the fringes of the plate (why did I bother describing it -- just look at the picture). The brownie was too mushy for me, but the dessert was still pretty good. I wouldn't get it again though.
Vegetarian options: Caesar Salad, Country Omelette, Broccoli Omelette, Taiwan Burger (fried tofu), Pasta with Mushrooms and Vegetables, and Mushroom Risotto with Cream Sauce.
