Taiwan Day 3 (Taipei) : Xi Men Ding 西门町

Took early HSR back to Taipei. Ordered this macaroni and cheese + egg on HSR and was superb melty!! Breakfast was satisfying ^.^

Xi Men Ding 西门町
Nearest train station: Ximen station 西门站

Exit 6 of Taipei Ximen metro station to enter Xi Men Ding - the young fashions district in Taipei. Many students love to shop there. I have also noted down the places to go in xi meng ding. They are Ah Zong Mee Sua, SOPHiSCA and Modern Toilet Restaurant.

Typical streets at Xi Men Ding 西门町

First stop - 阿宗面线

Seriously, this is the best mee sua I ever had in my life. It was so silky and chilli was so good! Sadly we only had it once the whole trip. I hope it 发扬光大 (expand internationally) to Singapore. Okay, maybe not. Then will not as special anymore (like SOPHiSCA :x).
Ah Zong mee sua ! I am so craving for it right now. It's soooo silky..

Second stop - SOPHiSCA "a sweet place for sweethearts"  菓風小舖

It has thousands kinds of fun, interesting and creative products such as the shape crafted candy, cotton candy, lollipops, chocolates and health nuts. Examples are condom shaped chocolate, pads packaging candy floss, mahjong tiles chocolate and etc. 

Recently I just found out that it has opened a branch at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3. ~.~ 

Last stop - Modern Toilet Restaurant 便所主题餐厅

Had this couple of times though the food was not very fantastic but we always go for the atmosphere and experience. We were asked to put down our number as the waiting time was 1 hour ~.~ We saw many Singaporean there too. So remember to make reservation first then continue shopping nearby. 

Customers will be sitting on a toilet bowl and having meals on a bath tub. Foods will be served in mini toilet bowls, bath tubs and urinals. 
Atmosphere 100%
Food 60%
