TWN: YEN Chinese Restaurant (紫艷中餐廳)

Jumbo mushrooms for 'dim sum' lunch?

Located on the 31st floor of the chic W Taipei (5*), YEN Chinese Restaurant offers delectable Cantonese dishes. It's helmed by Chef Wo Hoi Ming, a renowned chef who has previously worked in big restaurants, such as Lei Garden in HK and Crystal Jade Golden Palace in Singapore.

TWN: Ximending (西門町)

Is the cheese potato good enough for a prince?

I'm pretty much the kind of person who prefers to have a proper meal for lunch and dinner, but I guess that's not the case in Taiwan. I wonder who wouldn't be tempted by the vast array of food stalls at the streets of Ximending, Taipei.

TWN: Yu's Almond Tofu (于記杏仁豆腐)

Aromtic, smooth and silky tofu pudding for 'yu' and me~ :P

Fans of almond milk shouldn't skip this particular hole-in-the-wall shop near Ximen Station in the capital city of Taiwan. Established in 2004, Yu's Almond Tofu has been whipping up a variety of dessert items loved by many.

TWN: Taipei M Hotel (台北門精品旅店) [Breakfast]

Going crazy over unlimited supply of 滷肉飯!

As much as my BFF and I'd love to stay at Hotel Relax II again upon returning to the capital city of Taiwan, unfortunately there wasn't anymore rooms available when we tried to book online. As a result, we booked a room at Taipei M Hotel, which is a short distance away from Hotel Relax II.

TWN: Rilakkuma Café (拉拉熊咖啡廳)

I couldn't bear to eat the Rilakkuma-shaped rice ball~

Are you a fan of Rilakkuma? I'm not, but since my BFF and I happened to be near the cafe that's situated halfway between Zhongxiao Dunhua Station and Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall Station in Taipei, we decided to check it out for fun. We were lucky as there wasn't a queue that rainy afternoon.

TWN: Li-Wu Hotel (立霧客棧) [Breakfast]

Simple, yet homely breakfast of porridge before trekking!

My BFF and I decided to stay at Li-Wu Hotel for 3D2N as it's located within walking distance from the entrance of Taroko National Park. We enjoyed the simple breakfast prepared by the friendly old lady who's the mother of the owner of the accommodation.

TWN: Tianxiang Restaurant (天祥餐廳)

Have you tried wild boar before?

My BFF and I made a brief stop at the village of Tianxiang for lunch after a morning of trekking at Taroko National Park. We'd initially wanted to dine at Mei Yuan inside Silks Place Taroko Hotel, but apparently it was booked for an event that afternoon. As such, we went to Tian Xiang Restaurant to enjoy simple Taiwanese fares.

TWN: Lan Lan Restaurant (藍藍餐廳)

Such nice cuttlefish and pteridophyte dishes!

There aren't many eateries around the area outside Taroko National Park. During our 3D2N stay, my BFF and I had our dinner at the same restaurant, which isn't far from Li-Wu Hotel. We ordered two dishes each evening as the servers told us that they'd be more than enough for two people.
