Nice ambience and interesting place. Exquisite packing although price is on the high side. However, no sampling of food. We went an hour before it closes so there was totally no crowd. Delivery around Taiwan is available with top-up of NT170 to ensure you get the fresher batch before you depart.

The Ice Cream corner are pack with people, ques up for their exotic ice creams ranging from fruit sorbet, tea flavours and chocolates. Pastries were given a choice to choose. The main building sells all sorts of pastries/ chocolates etc in exquisite packaging. The famous would be the pineapple tarts.

No doubt the product packaging and visual merchandising of the place is still worth a quick look, but I spent about 5 minutes in there and quickly felt overwhelmed.

The monument itself is already worth the trip. On the exterior it looked run-down but when you walked in, you felt like you have been welcomed by a high class chinese tea house in the 60s' setting. The quality of their cakes and biscuits is subjective, but the design and concept of the whole place is the one which is... More
