Now that I’ve uploaded all of my pictures, I can do a more thorough update of my last days in Taiwan. On Wednesday, after taking pictures in Daan Park, we headed to the Taipei 101 area to eat Peking duck. The duck is cut for you at the table:


He was the same guy that prepared the duck 4 years ago when I visited! The duck wasn’t as good as it used to be (my dad said that quality has gone down a bit since the last time he visited) but we still enjoyed the meal.

After lunch, we went back to the hotel to meet up with my mom’s friend, Jenny, who took us to Kaffe Amadeus, a coffee shop in the new Sogo mall. Kaffe Amadeus has an afternoon coffee special – two desserts and coffee for $390NT. I went with the ice latte:


We ordered three scoops of ice cream – chocolate, grape, and currant:

Jenny ordered the opera cake with biscuits:

And the three of us shared a large souffle, a specialty of Kaffe Amadeus:


It takes 45 minutes to prepare and it’s all egg whites, sugar, citrus, and raisins. It’s topped with a blueberry sauce and was quite airy:

By the time we finished everything, we were stuffed, to say the least. However, after eating all morning and afternoon, we got ready to eat AGAIN! My dad picked me up later that evening to meet up with my dad’s friend, Yen ai-yi. She took us to eat traditional Taiwanese food, including fried oysters and basil:


Bean sprouts and other vegetables wrapped in tofu skin and fried:


And congee with yam (my favorite!):


Me and David with Yen ai-yi and her niece, who is also my dad’s TA/assistant:


After finishing dinner, we literally had to roll ourselves back to the hotel because we had spent the entire day EATING. I can’t believe I didn’t gain more than 6 pounds while I was in Taiwan!
