How many meals can you have in 1 day??
We stayed in Taipei for one extra day because our original flight got cancelled due to 2 typhoon situation. Luckily, Taipei was surprisingly sunny (and not as hot) on this day which made our stay extra pleasant. We decided to spend this 24Hr in an extra intensive way: 8 meals food marathon. From 10am to 12am, we ran around the city and visited these 8 dining spots featured in the video and below.
These crazy travel buddies are definitely a keeper! x
8am...we arrived at Taipei Train Station and looking for our Air B&B to check in our luggages.
Cafe by Juicy Diary
Set in a quiet alley, the cafe inner decor was warm, modern and clean. I could imagine catching up with a few girl friends on weekends at this place. We tried two signature tropical smoothie bowls, the yogurt bowl and a few daily cold-pressed juices. Everything they served was very freshly prepared and nicely presented. Definitely a healthy choice for a quick detoxifying boost. However, I do think their service was a little slow, or is it because I measured it using HK standard?
Alpha Black Coffee
The facade was painted in a very delightful light blue color, same as their paper cups and logo. You could easily find this cafe from the opposite street.
The classic black and white mosaic floor tiles at the entrance spelled "COFFEE" was one of their signature photo spot. You could find the coffee menu on the wooden panels on the wall.
Going deeper into the cafe you would find a tropical green wall with little monkeys - another photo spot.
They served coffees in a paper cup and they didn't give too much attention to latte art (obviously in the video), but the crème brûlée latte tasted well and looked nice!
Sushi Kitcho is known for one of the highly ranked sushi places in Taipei. It is in a prime location, having a close proximity to neighborhood and hip shopping destinations. The restaurant wasn't very big (around 15 pax).
We visited during lunch time with an advanced reservation. The lunch sushi sets came in 3 tiers (NT$2500, $3000 and $3500), and we picked was the 2nd highest price set and there were around 20 courses with sashimi, sushi and cooked delicacies.
Every dish was delicious and it's definitely on my revisit list in Taipei to try their dinner Omasake menu.
Yellow Lemon is a popular dessert cafe loved by hip youngsters. We came for the "Picnic tea set" which chef will set an artificial turf on your dining table, and artfully place all the miniature picnic props along with real, edible mini pastries and cakes on top. The setting is definitely IG-worthy and to our surprise the taste of all desserts and savory dishes were also very delicious!
Address: 100台灣台北市中正區八德路一段1號中 7B 館
Coffee dpt is a minimal, Scandinavian-design cafe set behind its own "DPT" fashion boutique inside Huashan1914 華山文創園區. The region is packed with new local designer brands, art & craft shops, unique souvenir shops and cafes. Stop by for their signature "coffee float" - latte with ice-cream float, bottled cold crew and jam sandwiches.
Address: 大安區四維路44巷15-1號106 臺北市
Tasty modern Taiwanese cuisine in a relaxed, tavern-feeling space filled with art piece and lively ambience. The staff there was very friendly and welcoming, he simply asked how hungry we were and smartly helped us order all the dishes.
It turned out the portion was perfectly good, we loved the seasonal veggies cold plates, three-cup pork knuckles, Steamed fish (fresh, juicy and tender with a slightly sour sauce) and all the desserts (esp the Persimmon cake)! Another creative touch inside the restaurant is their restroom decor...for this you'd have to find out yourself!
Address: 台北市松山區市民大道五段33號105 臺北市
I missed out the chance to visit this place twice, so this time even we had already had 7 meals, I would insist coming here. This is not only a regular street-food, but also a very popular late-night meal spot for Taiwanese. We ordered a big size noodle for sharing and a bowl of miso soup with egg and meatballs. The noodles are cooked to al-dente and well-mixed with sesame sauce, spices and cucumber strips. Everything looked so simple but indeed sophisticated and addictive, I'd definitely try to make these at home and see how close i can get!
Cheers and see you next time Taipei!
