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.

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.
