8D7N Solo Taiwan Trip [2017] - WOW (Woolloomooloo Out West)

SO, how did I chance upon this place?

RANDOMLY.
Literally, randomly.

I was just exploring around Ximending at night for new places and I was really lucky to really chance upon this cafe/bistro/restaurant and I believe this was the best find of this trip!!





.............................


Woolloomooloo Out West (a.k.a WOW) 
No. 2, Lane 120, Section 2, Wuchang St, Wanhua District, Taipei City, Taiwan 108
武昌街二段120巷2號Taipei 10844

Nearest MRT: Ximen Station
Operating Hours: 1000 - 0000





.............................



This place is a little harder to find cause it's at one of the back alleys - not the central of Ximending.



The interior looked SO classy. But the food wasn't pricey!! 
And sometimes they have got live music going on :)





It's crazy cause they've got a level 2 seating area 
AND LEGIT MOVIE THEATRE (which wasn't opened for public yet)





They serve mainly western cuisines and alcohols (all types lol).
But the favourite thing I like about this place is...


A FUCKING SPOT LIGHT AT EVERY CORNER OF THE TABLE. 
It made photo taking SO EASY and made my food photos look so well-lit! 


Don't believe?


Check this photo out -



AND THIS.



Other than the embellished interior, the food was gratifying.
(I loved their fries even tho I'm not really a fries person)

8D7N Solo Taiwan Trip [2017] - Miffy x 2% Café

I never knew Taiwan has a Miffy Café - they have a few in Japan.
BUT IN TAIWAN, and best, in TAIPEI??!
So when I heard about it, doh, I went to there without a second doubt!



.............................


Miffy x 2% Café 
235, Taiwan, New Taipei City, Zhonghe District, Section 3, Zhongshan Rd
122號環球購物中心

Nearest MRT: Fuzhong/Banqiao Station
Bus: 307
Operating Hours: 1100 - 2200





.............................


Naturally, first photo of the post would be #OOTD lol!
AND YES, I had a haircut + dye in Taipei! Feeling like a local already LOLOL!



Okay, so the stupid thing about Google maps was that they showed me that I could only transfer at Fuzhong station and take the bus 307 from there. But Banqiao station was actually a nearer station to take the bus from (just outside the station). So if you're fluent in Mandarin, you can try alighting at Banqiao to take bus 307, else, just follow my path LOL.


You should see this when you exit the station, so cross this road and cross over to the right.
Basically, diagonally. 


You should end up at this bus stop



It's around a 10 mins ride away. And you should alight at "Banqiao Supervision Station" (監理站[新巴士])
When you look across, you'd be able to see this shopping mall called "Global Mall" and that's where the café is located in! 



So once you enter the mall, you'd see a MIFFY shop. But that's not the café.
The café is located on the second level.
(if I didn't remember wrongly, either 2nd or 3rd lol)

But it's pretty easy to spot!




My gosh, just look at that cute interior!!




AND THIS WAS MY TABLE LOL



Ordered tea cause I didn't want get sweet drinks.
But the best part about getting tea in Taiwan (in general) is that you can refill them as many times as you want to!! Even in Starbucks!! Without any extra charge!! That's like so damn awesome?!!



Oh, the set that I ordered comes with a free "milk pudding" or whatever that is.
And I'm really glad this came free because I wouldn't have ordered this. And gosh, 
THIS TASTED SO DAMN NICE.



My pasta - it didn't taste really nice to me cause there was onions lol.
(P.S. I think I ordered the kids meal cause I was too full from snacks on the streets lol)



So here's me with my food
(Just wanted to post this picture cause I looked nice in it!)



Probably because it was a weekday afternoon, too, and because this location isn't really at the central of Taipei or where tourists would usually shop at, there wasn't really any crowd in the whole mall in fact. 


So here's a shot with Miffy!
