Japanese Lunch at XMD

Oh… I’m so bad at cutesy Japanese poses but I do try! My sister is really good at them though… maybe it’s simply a sign of my age!

Anyways, back in Taipei, we wandered into this Japanese fast food like store in Ximending. I don’t remember the name but the food was alright with free flow of self-serving drinks. I believe it was probably a popular student joint judging from the crowd I saw there.

On the whole, I find the food in Taiwan to be affordable and pretty good. They have tons of Japanese restaurants everywhere and they serve nice portions for a really good price.

We did the usual photo taking before heading to the Mister Donut store to pick up more yummies on the way to the train station!

My sister loves their donuts and I think my family bought them almost everyday while we were in Taipei. They are not bad though I still prefer J.Co Donuts over these.

This is such a frivolous post but I’ll blog about the other sights we saw in Taipei in the next post. The trains system was such an ally and we got to all our destinations by train! No cabbing at all! Even though I don’t think the cab prices vary much from the Singapore ones.

      kirei,

      I’m definitely no expert in Taiwan as it’s also one country I don’t visit very often. You could spend 1N in Hualian, 2/3N in Taipei visiting the city, 1N at the hot springs in Beidou, 1N in Keelung and 1 day visiting sun moon lake. As a first timer these are probably the places you would want to cover. I will be updating more photos and info on my Taiwan trip on my blog so you can look out for the posts to see if the places would interest you. Eating wise, Taiwan is food paradise so there’s endless choices and lots of roadside snacks. Shopping can be done at Ximending and Wu Fen Pu.
