TAIPEI recs needed- help!

Hi, my husband and I are recently relocated here from the Bay Area (San Francisco) for a couple months and are in need of some local recommendations. We've been touring around Asia for some time, so while we'd like to sample some local cuisine, we're also craving for some Western food. My husband is a vegetarian-seafood eater, and while I am too, I also occasionally have meat (especially if it's from a good source, ie. organic) I'm from Hong Kong, and have lived in the Bay Area for some time, and so have been spoiled by yummy, clean(organic) food. Any recommendations for any of the following would be great:

We're staying in Beitou (North) and frequent the ShihLin area. Easy access would be a plus!

• American style- brunch, salads, sandwichesl, smoothies, pizza
• Italian / French - lived in both countries and am open to good cooking, and maybe some crepes (?)
• Pizza - pizza hut (?, getting desperate here)
• Korean
• Japanese
• Taiwan style- congee, noodles
• Dumpling house
• Thai / Vietnamese
• Spanish (anybody tried the Tapas Bar?)
