Hungry Chimps

After skimming through the list of places we would like to go, we ended up in the Hungry Chimps Cafe. It was a Friday night, and most of our choices, we deemed that they would be crowded.

The Hungry Chimps Cafe is located above Play Nation. Climbing up the brightly lit set of stairs, we were welcomed with a view of empty tables. First thought was, were they open? Most of their customers came during the later part of the night, though it was already about 8pm when we reach.

We were sitting near the entrance, so we heard it throughout the night. First they ask if the guests made any reservations, if no, they would say that it's free seating, so the guests are able to choose where ever they want to sit. And another thing is that their counter is very far from the entrance and the tables, so it took them quite sometime to notice our entrance, or our waving hands.

The entrance. The cafe is located on the 2nd storey.
The door has their mascot chimp on the door. Cute.
The cover of their menu. The logo is embossed into the cover.
The walls has alot of their chimp pictures. 
Chimps Specialy Calamari Rings (Recommended) $13.00
Prepared with Fresh Squid, Deep Fried in Unique Hungry Chimps Recipe

The calamari rings came first. We ordered only the recommended dishes, marked with the chimp's head next to the dishes name. First impression, "Why the calamari rings so pale?". It is not the normal golden brown colour. Taste okay, but does not taste nice after it cooled. Better to eat them hot.

The Orient (Recommended) $14.00
Grilled Chicken Chop marinated in Oriental Spices, Brown Sauce.
Choice of Coleslaw or Garden Greens
Choice of Thick Cut Fries or Butter Rice

The chicken chop tastes quite nice. Quite like the sauce for the chicken chop. The sauce taste very familiar, just that we could not figure out what it was. Really very oriental, chinese cooking taste.

The Ocean Catch (Recommended) $14.00
White Dory Fish Fillet in Garlic Mustard Batter, Tartar Sauce
Choice of Coleslaw or Garden Greens
Choice of Thick Cut Fries or Butter Rice

The flour covering the fish, had a very bad taste to it. It's like they had used oil that had been used for too many times to fried the dory fish. What we usually say in chinese "臭油味". Disappointed.

Menu chalkboard wall in front of the cashier.
If we didn't walk over to pay via nets, we would not have seen this.

We were very full at the end of the meal. Pretty disappointed meal too. But it is a good place for big groups to hang around and chit chat, not very crowded, comfortable sofa seats, free WiFi to use.

Payment only available in cash or nets. No credit card payment available.

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
