This is my first time staying near Tai Kok Tsui Area and didn’t really expect much there. But I am wrong! This place has good food and a great place to try some of the simple local delicacies. There are quite a few good restaurants nearby which we saw have lots of people queuing outside to wait for seats. However, due to the time constraint, we could only try out 2 restaurants there.
Travelers who have been to Shilin Night market will know that it is a huge place for delicious street food and lots of things to see, buy and play.
There are so many food to try and what would be the one that worth queuing and waiting? Choices from food that are not widely accepted by tourists, and some of the hidden food that you might miss. These are stalls that I always go to when I am in Taipei and will discovered some new found favorite in subsequent visits.
A hidden gem found in the alley near the busy Tong Hua Street. Not sure if you all know about this place? It is well known among the fans of Taiwanese band, Mayday. This store is opened by one of the members, Stone with his 2 other friends who are musicians.
It is a music store to be exact, however, they have a little cafe area for coffee lovers. As I am not a musician nor have any knowledge of musical instruments, I will not cover about that section. Therefore, this post will focus on the café.
I have to admit that I am a crazy fangirl for Rilakkuma and love it so much that I will always buy its stuff and collect them. It is always on my to-do list to visit the café in Japan, however, they only do a pop-up store for Rilakkuma café, which means, they will be in certain parts of Japan for a period of time and move on to another location.
When the news of Rilakkuma café was opened in Taiwan, I have been planning to visit the cafe to have a cup of coffee and meal there. Without any hesitation this time, I kept a day free in my itinerary and made my reservation online.
Heading to MaoKong for an unforgettable dinner with an awesome view of the Taipei 101 was never on my to-do list before. However, when I was searching for a place to celebrate countdown in Taiwan and where to go, I stumbled upon this place. I thought that it would be a memorable way to celebrate the year end on the mountain with my friend.
We tried the Wu Lao Guo during our previous visit to Taiwan. This time round, our Taiwanese friend introduced this famous hot pot restaurant, Top one pot, in Taiwan. This is ranked top 3, within 2 years of its operation. Currently, its review from the local was excellent and some even said that it is better than Wu Lao Guo. However, it is up to the individual preference and for service wise, after serving the customers, the service staffs at Top One Pot are not required to bow 90 degree, unlike Ding Wang or Wu Lao Guo whereby this action might cause some customer to feel uneasy.
Since we are in Netherlands, isn’t it a must to try the Dutch food here. We came across this restaurant while we were doing our research, and it is located at Amsterdam downtown. Most importantly, the good reviews seen from TripAdvisor made us decided to have a meal here.
On our last night in Reykjavik, we wanted to treat ourselves with something nice. I began to research what are the food we should eat in Iceland, and I found this restaurant. What is so special about it? They sell some of the exotic food that you might be shocked to hear.
