Eat at Taipei

An eatery by Creative Eateries in JCube. When it first opened together with JCube's opening, the queue was long. Very long. It is only now that I got the chance to eat this. It's a Friday evening. The previous two attempts to eat this was also on a Friday evening. But today, there is no queue. Even after we had seated, and finished eating, throughout the whole session, there was no queue.

We were seated pretty near the entrance. There are also counter seats and the view was the ice skating ring. You can eat while watching people skate.

Our table has the MTR map on it.

Sweet Potato Fries ($3.90) seems like a must-order dish. Almost every able has got a plate of this fries. It's fried sweet potato in strips form and it comes with a powder dip. The dip taste salty. The fries taste very nice with the dip. Really a must-try. This is the only dish i find nice.

Danzai Noodle Soup with Minced Pork ($6.90). There's a prawn, half of a half boiled egg, and minced pork with the soup noodles. Taste pretty normal. The prawn is very big.

Vermicelli with Oysters & Pig Intestines ($6.90) didn't really taste nice. Guess the authentic Vermicelli in Taipei taste much nicer.

Eat @ Taipei Spring Roll ($3.90) is a big popiah wrapped with a few vegetables. There's chilli sauce in it.

Eat @ Taipei Blended Milk ($2.50). Ugh. The milk tea taste very bad. Not recommended at all.

The staff were pretty fast. When customers finished their meal and left for payment, there will be three staff appearing at the table. One clears the bowls and utensils, next one will wipe the table clean, and the last will lay out the utensils. Fast and efficient.

The wet tissues are chargeable at $0.30 each and the meal is chargeable with 7% GST and 10% Service Charge. The entrance and the exit are at two different points. So we have to walk to the other side of the restaurant to make payment. A good way to redirect the flow of customers, not jamming up the entrance.

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…
