A day where we had plan to go to HsinChu city for a half day trip, however, due to bad weather we cancelled the trip and decided to stay in Taipei city.
Did a quick check on interesting cafe or places where we can spend our afternoon. We chanced upon Vivienne Westwood Cafe in Taipei, we thought that it is quite cool, hence we went over to have our afternoon tea there.
Always wanted to try and make my own Okonomiyaki in Japan. I got a chance to do so in one of my trip to where the origin of Okonomiyaki came from, Osaka. A restaurant that was introduced by my Japanese friend who got to know that I would like to visit a restaurant where I could make my own okonomiyaki.
After our walk at the Cathedral of Barcelona, we went to the busy shopping street near Hard Rock Cafe. There is one of their large departmental store, El Corte Inglés. You can have your last minute shopping here like we did before flying home. This day dinner we made our reservation at Hard Rock Cafe, despite having made reservations for our dinner we still have to wait for around 30 minutes before we were ushered in.
The MUST eat pastel de nata/egg tart in Portugal.
Why? The reason to eat here is simple as this is the pastry restaurant, which holds the original receipt from Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the originator for pastel de nata. If you are to compare the pastel de nata to the others selling along the streets in Lisbon, you will know that there is a real difference between the original and the “fake”. ** something is missing, and this is why it makes this egg tart so invincible .**
