The one and only cold pressed juice in Taipei, they are hard to come by.  As you can see they only open for 5 hours and sometimes they are closed for travelings and events, be sure you check out their Facebook page before you head out for them.  Cold pressed juice in a stylish glass where you see people drinking them during fashion weeks, bloggers going on a detox every now and then, all these attractive vibrant colors and mostly they are better for your health, more vitamins, minerals and enzymes.Juicein Juicein Juicein Juicein Juicein

I tried their Cleanse 3 for a two days plan, they deliver freshly to your door every second day. JuiceIn provides three different detox plans they are: Cleanse 1, 2 and 3 . They cost $1200 per day and you will get 6 bottles of 500ml.

Cleanse 1- Beginners

Green juice x2, roots juice, fruits juice, citrus juice and almond drink

Cleanse 2 – Experienced

Green juice x3, roots juice, citrus juice and almond drink

Cleanse 3 – Expert

Green juice x4, citrus juice and almond drink

All you do is to drink the 6 bottles of juices in 2 hours intervals, and bucket loads of water in between, its pretty filling and if you do want something  to eat go for veggies or fruits.  I don’t know was it the juices or something else, but i had this irritating rash on my neck for weeks before I did the detox and after i finished it disappeared after a day.  I guess it’s good to give your body a rest from all those artificial food we eat from time to time. Out of all the juices I tried I like the the Oghee monster the most and I actually asked for 2 Oghee and 2 green monster for my second day.  The Almond drink is fairly rich while the citrus juice is a bit hot and u can feel it burning up.

When Element drops it’s Es, it’s LMNT!  We had our girls night out here last week, after a long ride.  Originally it should only took us about 20 mins to get there, LOL but we ended up with an hour and a bit.  Though, the ride was long, we seized the moment and it felt like the old time when we had road trips back home.  Such an adventurous trip, guess we just wanna have fun or a getaway is much needed.

I used to club at the LMNT lounge bar and this was the first time I visited their restaurant.  Surprisingly, the place was brightly lit and spacious with ample of mirrors.

LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房

This could also be a perfect place for you and your homies to chill, chitchat and good food double wins.   For us,  we laughed our heads off the entire dinner, hopefully we weren’t too loud.  Girls just wanna have fun.

We set our eyes on the Italian Soda, on the sour side we ordered the grapefruit summer ($180) whereas the yellow kiwi is slightly sweeter.  Our Silly Sally was sipping away her drink, and she went I like the yellow kiwi but… but .. but.. it has soda in it. Our faces dropped and burst into laughter.  She made my day 🙂

Our first dish was Parma Ham and Melon with Homemade Fig ($280), the fig took me by surprise as it was marinated with a special sauce and it added a hint of sourness to it.  If you like Parma Ham I would recommend this.

Followed by the Kimchi SPAM Fried Wonton ($280) if I have to rank my favorite dishes of the night, sorry Kimchi and SPAM you are down at the bottom.  This was basically a fried kimchi wonton the SPAM was only a tiny weeny piece, this was a bit disappointing and wasn’t as wow as the others.  When I spotted Buffalo Wings ($280) on the menu, I was like I want this I want this.  “spicy or original?” All of us said in unison “SPICY!” The wings are too common for lounge bars and I have had some over fried ones before and also those swim inside the sauce.  LMNT’s was cook the way it should, and the meat was still tender and juicy.  Without paying attention, there was a mountain of bones in front of Dino I this proved Dinosaurs are meat eaters.   I liked the wings here, will definitely come back for more.

LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房 LMNT  元素創意廚房For mains we ordered two Pizza kinda dish.  Kimchi Pork Pizza ($280)  was something you shouldn’t miss and it was no where near it’s twins at the pizza joint.  When the think crust and deep dish ain’t my cup of tea, thin and crispy crust for the win.  The kimchi went humorously with the extra cheesy, marinated pork and the crust, it gives the pizza most of its flavor and also a bit moist to it.  I gotta admit that I love it and my Dino once again she just couldn’t help herself from eating it.  It will be a perfect match with a cold beer.

Did I say I DON’T LIKE DEEP DISH??? But this one is the UFO deep dish  “hello.. hello… can you hear me, are we gonna land on Saturn soon?” If it can take me to outerspace why not give it a try.  We had  the Sicilian Seafood UFO Deep Dish ($320), this one you gotta eat it when it’s hot.  I quite like this one but not as much as the pizza though, there were plentiful of seafood inside the pie.   Even though it didn’t score as high as the kimchi pizza but I must say the meat sauce inside was da bomb.  We were talking about ordering the sauce along with the seafood and have it with nachos, ummm mouthwatering.

I would recommend all the dishes that we had today except for the deep fried wonton, but if you are a kimchi fans then why not.

Lastly, Miss Photogenic.  This Chestnut Berry Shell Éclair ($250) was a bit disappointing,  it looked yummilcous, once again it was the case of it’s book cover doesn’t match the contents. However, girls need something sweet all the time and a quarter of it wasn’t that bad.  It was on the sweet side and the chestnut and berry taste were a bit mild compare to the sweetness.

We had a great night, girls night out is always a good way to release some of the stress.

Hi, Sheraton Taipei, it has been a while ! – 台北喜來登

Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登

I used to stay at Sheraton Taipei all the time back in the days when it was the best Starwood hotel in Taipei.  After so many years, I set my foot into this hotel again.  This hotel is pretty popular among locals for it’s buffet restaurant, and I was greeted with a large crowd at the lobby upon check-in on the day.   I love the location of the hotel, it’s just outside the Shandao Temple station and next to the best breakfast place in taipei (阜杭豆漿). Sheraton is just one station away from Taipei Main station, so it’s pretty convenient.

Since I had a work function in their ballroom early in the morning, I was expecting a message from their Event team and there was nothing.  The check in agent was pretty helpful and helped me retrieved the information needed.   I was upgraded to the Executive floor, and as a SPG member I received a hand written message from their Director of Rooms.   I have a thing for all these personalized welcome cards, even though it is  a computerized message, still love seeing them upon check-in. However, Sheraton thinks that Patricia is a Mr.?? and I was referred as Mr.xxx on the card, on the phone, basically throughout my stay.  I found that it’s a common mistake in Taiwan, even it was clearly stated on my SPG profile.

Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登

My room was around 35 sqm which is the same size as the normal deluxe room, but being up on the executive floors you get Sweet sleeper beds, Nesspersso and Heyland& Whittle amenities.  I would say the hotel is still in good shape, with some water stains here and there overall nothing too major.  I talked to Helen Huang, director of My Humble House Florist, she said that the hotel will undergo its renovation in 2017.  Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登

Like the other My humble house properties, Sheraton Taipei provides those comfy cushioned slippers and I think it runs in the company which they tend to provide them in 2 different sizes in your room.  Whereas, in other hotels you get them in one size and of course you can always ask for the kiddo slippers.

I love the Sweet Sleepers in Sheraton hotels, but I wasn’t too sure about the ones in  Sheraton Taipei.  I toss and turn while I sleep and from time to time my back hurt because I slept right on the frame.  The next morning I decide to dig into this and found that my bed was actually two singles pushed together, that’s why I was sleeping on the metal frame through out the night.  My friend and I agreed that next time we gotta request a full king size bed.

Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登 Sheraton Taipei 台北喜來登

It was funny how Sheraton Taipei issues a lending note for every single items you borrow from them, I guess the hotel must had a bad experience of guests not returning the items.

Overall, I had a pleasant stay and I found their HOTEL staff are pretty helpful.  The not-so-pleasant matter appear after I checked out, we were doing a rehearsal at their ballroom and after that we found out that the event team has been gossiping about us and making it a big deal with the PR company.  My supervisor wasn’t too happy about this and Helen Huang reassured us that it won’t happen again. Can’t wait till my next stay in two weeks time and hopefully the event team will be as helpful as the hotel staff.

Jade Lounge 青隅 – Mandarin Oriental Taipei 臺北文華東方酒店

Jade Lounge 青隅

After 8 years of wait and Mandarin Oriental Taipei finally opened it’s door in May.  MO Taipei made it’s grand entrance and claiming the title of the first SIX stars hotel in Taiwan.  It adopts the ostentatious and classy style just like others around the world. From Mario Cittadini to Frank Haasnoot and Tony Chi you can tell how much effort and thoughts  the hotel has put in to it’s luxurious name.  Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅

Enjoy the full body massage followed by my favorite rose petal jam scone and Strawberry green tea is always my kind of afternoon.  I made reservation for afternoon tea at the Jade Lounge well before the opening day.  However, I had my hopes too high for Jade Lounge, after a few visits to MO, I would say I like  Coco and YaGe the best.

Jade Lounge unlike Cafe Causette in Hong Kong, they have a minimum charge of one tea set ($1250) per person.

They offer three different types of  Tea sets : The three tiers Jade afternoon tea (TWD $1250), Afternoon tea pairing with Ruinart ‘R’ Champagne  (TWD $1900) and The caviar afternoon tea – served with 15g caviar and champagne (TWD $3750)

Menu (click here)

Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅I paired mine with my favorite Strawberry green tea, it still tastes the same.  Couldn’t wait till I have my scones here, but they only offer some strange flavors here like raisins, green tea and chocolate.  Where’s my plain scones??

Jade Lounge 青隅 Jade Lounge 青隅

The three tiers came with : sweets, savories, cookies n scones as well as Le Jambon Cru on baguette and petits fours on the side.

I would say the top tier was the best and they tasted as good as their look.

For the Middle tier,  they tasted blend but you can tell that they use fresh ingredients.  I loved the Crab Remoulade with Lemon Caviar and the Egg Mimosa was way too dry;  wasn’t my cup of tea.

Now, onto the worst but yet the ones I had been reminiscing after my last HK trip.  The scones came in random flavor, which left me with nothing but go with the raisins ones.  The scone itself was too dry and floury, it didn’t have the buttery scent like the ones at Smith and Hsu.  Rose petal jam wasn’t on the menu, so they came with Lemon curd and blueberry jam, I asked for whipped cream and had to wait for 25 mins.  The chocolate were a strong finish note , the dark chocolate were to my liking and with a strong cocoa flavor.  Frank Haasnoot made my day.  Overall, I guess an afternoon tea of me, myself n I at the MO won’t be happening in Taipei since scones are never the same and you can’t just order plain scones and Strawberry green tea, but the tea set.

At work, I am famous for leaving my phone and other valuables all over the place and I mean it.  I had my Chrome Hearts ring ran for its life and rolled down the gap of the wooden flooring, and colleagues or visitors retrieved my phone at random places including on a slide in the playground.  LOL That’s me.  On our way to Fanier that day, I was screaming for my phone in the car while it soared down from the car roof.  Now I’m sure that I will make it into the book of record at my workplace.

The split level burger place was brightly lighted with plenty  natural light.   Fanier Burger has long table for family and friends gathering or bar top for one.  費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger 費尼漢堡 Fanier Burger

The gourmet burger are freshly made with homemade beef patties, claiming it’s 80% lean with 20% fat’s perfect combination.  The patties were cooked medium well done, and it was less juicier that I had imagined during my 3 weeks crave.

we ordered The  Fantastic $190 which has lettuces, tomato, bacon, cheese, beef and bbq sauce.  The bun was soft and crispy went harmonious with the ingredients , the fillings ain’t overwhelming like some of the burgers you get which you can barely fit it inside your mouth.

I also had the peanut butter, bacon with chicken, you only get a blob of peanut butter for this one unlike some others ones where you get an ample amount  and leaves you with this peanut butter attack.  I prefer the latter, and found this rather run of the mill.  Just like the beef patties the chicken is rather chewy.  I recommend you stick with the burgers at the place,  the steak was not to my liking.

I would still come back to this place for a quick burger fix but before that I am gonna try out the hype Burger & Co, Bravo Burger and BLT.

Took a stroll after church on a Sunday afternoon.  MinSheng District is always fun to hang out and explore, an area full of new and tiny cafes and stylish shops.  You gotta check it out every now and then,  to keep up the the vibe.  My friends were doing their street performance while we waited to be seated.

postcards, stickers, collectables, scenery frames etc etc, they had fitted alot of things in this tiny cafe.  There must be something unique to this cafe in order for them to survive in the central cafe district (can’t believe how many cafes are there in this area).  They have special coffee arts and home style japanese curry, not to mention that rice comes in dolphin or rabbit shapes. Their cakes are pretty good too since it was the strawberry season, we ordered the strawberry cake.  The soft and fluffy sponge cake came with big n juicy strawberries, a good companion for your matcha latte.

Be sure to try out their Chocolate banana tart, ($120) chocolate sauce dripping down from the banana tower.  It was soo guuuud, sad that my friends ain’t the banana type of person so we gave it a skip this time.

With plugs and free wifi you can surely spend your afternoon there.

This time I brought my local Taiwanese friends to an American cafeteria, shamefully this is my first time in a cafeteria too.  We don’t see much of them in New Zealand, and the one in my Uni / College was much different to the ones you see in American drama.  Our one looks more like a foodcourt, and UoA is pretty much modernized now with cafes and food outlets.

QueenS Cuisine shared the same owner with Juanita Burrito (i will never forget that they delivered burritos to the riverside park for my b’day picnic), and my favorite Yakitori Kikori 樵 (click here).

QueenS replicated an upscale cafeteria interior from stainless steel trays to long benches.  It employed the up to beat technology where you beep in and out, which the smart card total up all your spending in the cafeteria.

QueenS offers an overwhelming selection and you can easily go overboard here.  Here’s the drill.

You picked up your smart card at the entrance, then you made you way through Main/ Entree >> sides & appetizers >> salad >> crisps >> soup >> pizza >> burgers and waffles (made to orders) >> cakes >> drinks

The meals were at an affordable price with a big portion, which ranged from TWD 168 – 238 with an entree, 2 sides and salad / soup.

Out of the three mains we had, I loved the BBQ chicken the most which reminds me of the roast chicken breast my mom made back home.  I was quite disappointed with the parmesan chicken which was a bit too dry and chewy. As you can see that my friend asked for extra sauce and rice.  Surprise, surprise,  this was the first time I saw leftovers in his plate, he was simply bloated.  We seated at the semi-outdoor area which was really nice, we had our guitar with us and sang throughout the dinner.

I had been here two weeks consecutively and had not yet try their chocolate marshmallow waffle.  I guess I will have to go back for a 3rd time just for the waffle

Sheraton Macao – earth tower deluxe suite

This is my third blog post on the property, first one was on the deluxe suite on sky tower (click here) and I also have one on executive lounge’s buffet breakfast (click here).
I was here for business and they were kind enough to upgrade me to another room type this time.  Even though, it was still Executive suite but it had a different layout and this was the first time for me to stay on the earth tower.
The room itself is 125 square meters and it has a dinning area, media room and a lounge. Sheraton Macao 澳門喜來登 Sheraton Macao 澳門喜來登
once you stepped inside the suite you were greeted by the work desk, it had pretty much what you needed for your business trip.  Their housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful if you needed some extra stationeries.
The guest bathroom was further down on the right, whereas dining area and media room on the left.
This was something different from the earth tower, earth tower’s suite were rectangular and the dinning and media room weren’t separated from the lounge and bedroom.

We had a chill night in the media room while working on our business plan, and sipping away our bottle of white.
However, we experienced a hard time trying to connect to the in room wifi, other than this it was a productive night.
Back out to to dinning area then onto the lounge, it was spacious and we place all our luggages out here.  The mini bar located here as well, we got 3 not so fresh apples and Nespersso machine, most of the posh hotels come with them nowadays.  Sheraton refilled the capsules when they did the turn down service and of cause you can request which flavor you want (red, black or brown in most hotels).

This time we had two Sheraton Sweet sleeper beds, along with minimalistic design was extremely spacious.  The full length windows on looking to the harbor, city center and construction sites.

2014 was started off with a bright sunny morning, after a long night partying I still managed to wake up early for my breakkie. Blog post for hotel room (click here)   La Farfalla was brightly lit with contemporary design along with Humble House’s art collection.  Humble House only has one restaurant and one lounge bar, if you find it’s too limited you can always go to their sister hotel Le Meridien which is across the street.  Alternatively, Humble House is in the heart of XinYi district where you are surrounded with international restaurants and shopping malls.

When you walked into La Farfalla, you were greeted by Paola Pivi’s chair lamp. Prompt services and attentive staffs, no sign of hangover/ late parties from New Year’s Eve.  I was surprise to see a lot of guests in the restaurants as I was expecting everyone was still in bed.

Just like other buffet breakfast, it had the chinese hot dishes, egg station, cereals and bread.  There was something you don’t normally see for buffet breakfast, they had the Häagen-Dazs ice cream cabinet.  Food was fairly fresh, the only dislike was the egg station.  They had the ingredients at the back which was quite inconvenient for the guest to pick what they want.

Being a foodie in Taipei, you will never run short of new restaurants to try out.  With a new trend of American comfort food from EIEIO (Click here) to the lobster bar and the coming soon Queen Cuisine (Click here).

Needed some girl’s heart to heart talk, shopping and comfort food.  Went to the ZhongXiao district with my Boo, and I suggested that we go to The Lobster Bar since I was longing for some comfort food.

We arrived really early and the place was empty and after an hour it was full, even the private room. The private room can host up to 10 guests, perfect for friends gatherings and birthday parties.

We ordered the mini rolls ($380 TWD), which came in three different flavors LOBSTER , prawn and crab meat.  Big chunks of lobster meat with the warm buttery bun, need to say more?? I vote went to the lobster roll for sure out of the threesome, it also comes in the regular  portion ($630 TWD).

We also had the lobster bisque ($380) definitely worth the money the creamy bisque had a generous amount of lobster chucks in it.  It had a great depth of flavor and just like other seafood bisque it was on the heavy seasoned side.  This was what you needed on a cold, rainy miserable evening!

Lastly, we had the Lobster ravioli ($620) was perfect for a pasta freak like me.  The al dente ravioli pasta was filled with lobster meat were  swimming in the rich lobster broth.  The ravioli itself didn’t have much flavor but with the sauce, they made the perfect couple.
