On our second day, we travelled to Miyahara to visit their famous store. It used to be an eye clinic which was built during the Japanese occupation.
I loved their interior. It is so opulently decorated. It felt like stepping back into time and into Hogwarts.
Their biscuits and treats are packed in oriental packaging and design. Which makes really great gifts.
They have like 18 over flavours of different chocolate ice cream. We had the 72% chocolate one which was so rich and flavourful.
My favourite flavour was their red milk tea flavoured one. It is so good. I love how their ice cream is full of their tea flavour and not too milky.
I didn't know what to pick so i got the one recommended by the scooper. I am pretty sure that their other flavours would taste as great as well.
You get to choose a few kinds of topping. Because we were unsure whether or not to buy their pineapple cake, we decided to put pineapple cake as our ice cream topping together with some other biscuits they se…
Because we were waiting to check into our hotel, we decide to explore the arty farty parts of Taichung as recommended by Ladyironchef. If you do read chinese, you can find out more from their website as well.
I liked it, it's very instagram worthy. haha.
I suggest to visit this place after 12pm because most shops only open in the afternoons. We were there in the morning.
Here, you can find a map of the interesting shops around the area. I exceptionally enjoyed 綠光計畫. Will post pictures about in my next post.
After Wenwu Temple, we headed back to Ita Thao to our hotel.
It was really chilly at night and we ate street food for dinner.
This smelly tofu is so smelly. I didn't like it.
I love this BBQ muah chee. It's seaweed flavoured
The street was so quiet. Not much people roaming around. It's much more crowded during the day. The night market was not that big as well you can see the end of the street from the other end. We probably walked up and down the street 10 times because there's nothing much to do at night at Ita Thao.
Shrimp tempura with rice.
Chicken wing stuffed with rice. (a must try)
Squid ink sausage
Huge 'yakult' found in 7-11 Taiwan
This machine tells you your fortune.
We went to our hotel's rooftop to take some night shots. Sad to say that there was no stars.
