Bread frenzy!@Milkhouses, Taipei main station

image

My weakness for pastries, cakes and bread. I couldn’t resist buying some after walking past this store. As to why it is called Milkhous-ES, I am not sure…as far as I know, I am only looking at one shop haha.

I am superbly excited today! We are going to leave the city to Tai Tung. We will be heading there by train, which would be taking a whopping 4 hour journey. (My mistake. I checked online and thought I saw 2hours)

The great thing about Taipei’s bakeries’ pastries..most of them really do taste pretty good, generously portioned and inexpensive!

This Portuguese egg tart cost only about RM1plus. The glistening glowing yellow curd buttery goodness tempted my eyes so much. I had to buy one!

One bite in. OH…..hubba hubba! Soft, sweet, fluffy, on the inside, and crunchy on the flaky areas. After three bitefuls…poof, gone!

This bacon topped cheese bun (hurrah, there are pork flavoured pastries here!) Cost only RM 3plus. Heck I got an entire 10cm bacon on top of cheese slapped on my bun. It would have been easily RM10 or so in Malaysia.

We waited till we finally some some gorgeous views of nature (it was about 2hours past) in our train ride before we started eating.

The river water was so clear I could see the ground and rocks underneath from the train. Cruising along the journey with this view was breathtaking. So clean. So unpolluted.

Next view’s makan! Red bean puff pastry. Cost about RM3plus as well and it was as long as half of my arm! Being a sweet tooth, and a fan of red bean, I loved every crunchy bite! Let me show you my next gorgeous view.

We finally went much further off the city and land areas and reached the coastal line. The day was cloudy, hence the waves and sea looked a little solemn. Nonetheless, it was still a gorgeous view! I can imagine how beautiful it would be when the sun is high up in the bright blue sky!

Finally, to close off with a the celebratory sandwich: beef and cheese sandwich! We braced through a long 4 hour ride and arriving in Tai Tung soon. Mind you my sandwich only cost RM 6, and the ingredients were fresh and generous. I would never be able to find this for RM 6 in KL.

Tai Tung, known for its fresh seafood and coastal views, truly breathtaking and for a country that is perceived as small in size, they really do have a balance of city life, natural landscapes, and awesome food!

After being here for 3 days, I fell in love with in Taiwan.

Watch out for this space, for some interesting findings in Tai Tung!
