Birthday Food Day

A year older only means a bigger cake for a fuller stomach and a wiser mind. So let’s raise our chopsticks, loosen that belt, and eat to this celebration!

Nikkoffee (Map – MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station) (Two locations, one is right next to the Breeze Center) Here, they’re known for their coffee and I ordered the ice-coffee (light sugar and milk) with a cherry cheesecake. The cheesecake was so light and fluffy and not at all sweet. Like most Asians, Taiwanese isn’t heavy on their sweet-tooth, so you can only imagine that I can devour 20 of this…

No name: everything is in Chinese (Map – MRT Xingtian Temple Station — next to E-Log Coffee Shop with an orange sign) – I got the breakfast burger and this small thang packs a big punch! It has eggs, cucumbers, a sausage patty, and a zesty red sauce. It might look simple, but it’s full of flavors. Had it twice already.

ComeBuy (Map – MRT Gongguan) (Chain) – Tea shop with several milk tea and regular tea selections. I love how most of the tea shops here let you customize the sugar and ice level. I know they do this too in the States, but the difference here is that they ask you first and is part of your ordering process. Sometimes I would forget to request for it back in the States and have to pay for an overly sweet drink.

Breeze Center (Map – MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing): Sushi train. This mall is very fancy-dancy! They have the creme-de-la-creme brands, so you would assume that their sushi is top notch too, even for a sushi train style. The sushi is fresh and thick, just the way I like it. Here, atleast, I don’t have to catch my own Uni like I wanted to in Hawaii while scuba diving.




85°C Bakery Cafe (Map – MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing or MRT Nanjing East Road) (Chain) Their breads are like clouds in my mouth. If I can compare the texture of the bread to an American dessert, I would say it is like I’m eating Asian Krispy Kremes. It melts in your mouth — the won’t share, can’t share — type of food and who needs a birthday cake when I can have these! 🙂

About Linh

"I love to eat. I live to eat. I travel to eat." It only took a short amount of time for me to find out that the rat race, corporate life was not the life I want and that pushing papers was not as creatively stimulating as they advertised. As a result, I exchanged my suits for suitcases and setting on a year long journey to Southeast Asia. For each country I visit, my goal is to immerse myself in its culture and, of course, feast my way through all of its delicacies.
