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 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.

That day the café is fully packed, despite that the service staff was attentive and friendly. For the food wise, it was not that bad, I didn’t expect it to be good because a theme café focus is not the food itself but on the characters, however, this café speaks otherwise. I enjoyed most of the food served, except for the Cheese pork chop with curry rice, the curry taste a little too bland but overall the food portion and atmosphere was great.
