八度空间 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro

A new restaurant opened near my workplace. Taiwanese food. Interesting. Intended to try out this place during lunch, but it seems bustling during lunch hour, so it sets me off in another direction. Anyway, girlfriend was free for dinner, so I suggested this place.

Taiwanese food and Jay Chou as a theme? I wonder if permission was granted for his photos? Or like my friend said, that this 3rd outlet along with the first two belongs to the singer-actor-director? Can't find anything that mention this in their website. I wonder...

I was sure we were not accompanied by Jay's voice throughout the dinner, even though the website mentioned this:
Together with your family and friends, enjoy well-loved Taiwanese specialities with Jay Chou’s songs playing in the background at 8 Degrees.

There was only another table of patrons other than us when I first sat down. But as the evening progressed, more customers came in.

Jay's looking back at you...
Ongoing promotion

八度珍珠奶茶 8° bubble tea [$3.80] - The tea is not too bad, but the pearls are a little small. Not shiok enough haha.

淑鹽芝士薯條 8° five spice fries with cheese [$4.80] - Nice. Cheesy. But what were the five spices? Didn't really taste that. But the cheese is yum. Remember to save some cheese for the fries at the bottom, as the cheese only covered the surface.

八度滷肉飯 8° stewed pork belly rice [$3.80] - It's a small bowl of pork belly rice. The first bowl was rejected by girlfriend as the rice seems uncooked. The second bowl was better. Service lady said that the rice for this dish used is the pearl rice, hence the hard texture. But we both tried before rejecting, and we were sure that it was uncooked.

八度涼麵 8° cold noodle [$5.80] - Sad to say, it's not nice at all =( The sauce is weird. Very little noodles. And the noodles taste hard. I thought there should be more shaved peanuts too? For the price. Very very not worth.

Not really a place worth a return visit. But maybe we should try out the first outlet in Singapore? Maybe the standard is different?

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.

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…
