Continuation of Taipei Trip

This is featured in one of the Taipei guide books and the rave reviews on the internet by tourists heighten my curiosity and in spite of the cold weather, I went ahead to give it a try.

This dessert stall is a famous one at Yong Kang street. It's known as Ice Monster.

There I ordered the cold trio - mango, kiwi and strawberry.....absolutely marvelous!

The next day I visited the world renowned National Palace Museum (NPM). Take MRT to Shi Lin station and change to Red Bus 30 (but limited timing) but near Shi Lin got other bus services that goes to the NPM.
Photography is prohibited inside. The many exhibits showcased chinese paintings, tools and dye making, and of particular mentioning are the jade and ivory carvings!
Another place that is mentioned in the guide book which caught my attention is 德也茶喫 - Shan Dao Temple station exit no.2 walk 3 mins - behind Sheraton Hotel. 精緻的仿膳御點成為觀光客津津樂道的招牌點心.
Their tea and starter set.
Very exquisite snacks imitating those served to the Empress Dowager in the ancient Chinese Palace.

For NTD 199 your choice of any type of chinese tea, and alacarte buffet your choice of any of the 點心
