Standing Sushi Bar

Hubby suggested we go for cheap cheap sashimi for dinner today. I had been wanting to go to the Standing Sushi Bar ever since.. ever.. lol. The promotion items were so cheap, but it was not easy to find people or time to go there.

Hubby attempted to call the outlet at 5pm to make reservations, but no one picked up. And I tried at 6pm. The lady relayed that the reservations for the night were full but walk-ins are still available. I rushed down and reached at 6.20pm, and was fifth in queue. The restaurant looks crowded, but we were seated after a 20 minutes wait. Happy.

And we ordered. Quite a number of food to choose from, but other than the promotion items, the ala carte were considerably expensive. Kind of expected it though.

Salmon Sashimi - Here's 4 sets of 5 slices, total 20 slices. Each set costs $3. The salmon were thick and fresh. Nice. We looked around and found most of the tables ordered the sashimi. Lots of sashimi. Haha.. A MUST have on a Monday night.

Cold Sake - Each glass at $2. Neither hubby and I had sake before. Either cold sake is not nice, or we are not used to it. Tastes.... weird. I'm thinking of the latter haha... Should have ordered Asahi ($5).

Fried Salmon Skin - $4 - From the ala carte menu. Crispy and tasty but too little haha.. Really just a snack for a beer session.

Oyako Don - $10.90 - From the ala carte menu. Pretty normal, nothing special. Comes with a bowl of miso soup.

Garlic Fried Rice - $7.00 - From the ala carte menu. Nice, but a little too salty and oily.

Our total bill came up to be $41.69, with 10% service charge. I would definitely come back again for the salmon sashimi and beer ^^ I love promotions.

When we left, it was only 7.45pm, and take a look at the place. haha.. Crowded with a long queue. I'm glad we had finished eating.

** Psst... I checked in to Foursquare and shared in on Twitter and... I got a reply from Standing Sushi Bar @standingsushi. haha... How sweet of them~

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…
