The Line Buffet at Shangri-La Hotel

It's our anniversary and the hubby is treating us to a pretty high end buffet lunch at The Line, located in the Shangri-La Hotel. I had heard excellent reviews from friends about this place. And the prices is not cheap too. The lunch is still affordable for us and there's a 15% discount for reservations made online.

The hotel is located a little off the way. We took a train, changed to a bus and walked 10-15 minutes to get to the hotel. We reached 10 minutes before 12. Buffet lunch starts only at 12 noon, but we were welcomed and showed to our seats.

The restaurant is brightly lit, surrounded by glass panels, allowing natural light to shine into the restaurant. A very modern looking place, with white and orange as its main colour theme. Chefs at each section were busy preparing for the upcoming lunch crowd. The place was pretty empty but was quickly filled up after 12noon.

We started with the cold food. Prawns, oysters and crabs. And I played with the food.

No feel for the crab and osyter, but I love the prawns. Fresh.

This is the ever busy station. Everyone loves seafood. The chefs were busy preparing the oysters. Demand over supply with the non-stop queue.

Next, Sashimi. We didn't really take any sushi. Buffet, eat less carbo. A little disappointing for me.

Tempura. No feel.

Pretty salad bar.

Western station. We tried the pizza. Thin crust.

Dim Sum. I expected the shrimp dumplings to have a bigger prawn in it.

The tea and coffee counter. I ordered a Teh Tarik. A little diluted.

Indian Section. There's egg and plain prata. Quite a hot favourite, as the pratas were emptied quite quickly.. I went at least 4 times just to take a photo.

Our indian food selection.

At the far corner, there's a chicken rice stall and a noodles stall. I ordered a Laksa. Yum yum.

Desserts bar. There were many pretty cakes to choose from.

And I believe, I chose too much. We were struggling to finish what I took. Haha...

Despite being so full, I had to have my icecream. The hubby got us mango and yam. There's no chocolate. Healthier fruit flavours.

To be honest, we were a little disappointed. Maybe we had set our expectations a little too high. The service crew were all very friendly, attentive and polite. Our total bill came up to $98, with a 15% discount from making our reservations online. And poor hubby was busy visiting the gents during the movie after our lunch. I wonder why.....

Oh.. The waiter offered us a carpark coupon, but we did not drive there. I did not know parking is complimentary for diners. Now I know...

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.

臺鐵便當 Railway Bento Hubby's one of the must eat whenever we are …

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…
