Trip taken: October 24th – October 31st
On our way to ride the Maokong Gondola! Took the subway to Taipei Zoo station and just walked over.
Going up! Very peaceful ride. And much longer than I remembered. All the way to the last stop was about 20 minutes or so.
Whenever I come up here, I always have to stop by this cute little cafe, Maokong Teahouse. Their little snacks and desserts are all really good. This was their Tieguanyin tea ice cream. with a little kitty cookie. Delicious!
Waffles with fruit and cream. Also REALLY GOOD.
Oh look! We have more traveling companions. I really like the first one I got so we just HAD to find out where to get another one in Taipei! We finally found a lifestyle store that sold them inside Breeze Center, we were also watched Doctor Strange before it even came out in the US.
Back at it again with the kitty pose!
We walk for another 20 minutes and stopped for lunch at Yao Yue Teahouse. My parents took me here for the first time a couple years ago and I could never stop thinking about how good the food was! Tea oil noodles, great flavor!
Tea oil chicken! Chicken and ginger fried in tea oil. Comes out super crisp and delicious.
Just a regular dish of veggies, but also super delicious.
Shao Mai, yummmmmm.
Time for tea!
Our view at the teahouse. Just looking out in moutains and moutains. So peaceful.
If anyone is ever interested and venturing out here for some food, this is the sign you need to look out for! What’s even better is that they’re open 24/7!
What a great way to end the trip. We had such a busy schedule because I just wanted to hit up every spot. But in the end, we needed this relaxed day to just chill. We had walked around so much that our feet were just dead. So much more to see in Taiwan! On my bucket list: bike around Taiwan in 7 days!
