A Quick Foodie's Guide to Visiting Taiwan.

 Bubble tea is a quintessential must when visiting Taiwan! Decided to try out 王記茶舖 located in Hualien city in Taiwan. I ordered a medium sized bubble tea (left) and my cousin ordered the large (right). The bubble tea is rated as number one by locals so do give it a try if you stop by this city.

Address: 565 Zhongshan Road, Hualien City. 
Opening hours: 08:30- 23:00

KFC Portuguese Egg Tarts are surprisingly good! My aunt had been raving about these tarts so decided to give them a go. Purchased half a dozen of warm, flakey and crunchy egg tarts! Incredibly tasty and not too sweet. 

View from World Class Bullet Train. Took the Taiwan High Speed Rail (HSR) from Taichung Station to Taipei station. It was an unbelievably smooth ride and a fun experience. Comfortable leg space with complimentary tea/juice/coffee and snack. 

 Dining with a view at Hotel One. Decided to spend one night in Taichung City and stayed at the tallest building in Taichung. Opted for a simple breakfast and took in the serene view. Loved my stay here.

Seven Eleven Soft Serves. My cousin was adamant on me trying out the honey melon soft serve and I am so glad I did! Such a gem! Don't miss out on this if you happen to pass by one of the many 7/11's in Taiwan.

 Delicious Godiva Chocolate Soft Serve! If you are a fan of chocolate this is something you must try! A Wonderful self-treat, so go on and spoilt yourself. A bit pricey but worth it! 

 Agnes B Cafe is renown for it's sweet looking bear cakes!  

 Sadaharu Aoki Goodness hits Taipei. Huge fan of the macarons and deserts from Aoki. I learnt of Sadaharu Aoki during my travels to Paris. The fusion of French and Japanese pastry is mind blowing. Pastries are so beautiful with a delicious simplicity. The packaging for the macarons are done with such attention. 

  Not related to food - but if you have the time in Taipei do visit the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall located in Zhongzheng District, Taipei. Best historical spot in the city!
