Living in Greater Taipei provides you a lot of options to spend your day, from killing your time drinking a cup of “cute coffee” in Sam Coffee to enjoying your day hiking to the peak of Yangmingshan. However, if you still think there are not enough things to keep your boredom away, perhaps you can try to give Fuzhong 15 a visit.
One clear day (it was winter, but weather was unexpectedly friendly), we were too happy to waste the great atmosphere outside and took a random walk around Fuzhong in Banqiao district as it has been awhile. We walked and walked and walked.. until we finally reached Central Banqiao area. Starting to feel tired, I initiated we find a place for a quick rest.
Two more days left for this long weekend holiday…any plan yet? Hopefully this post can be one option to be considered? 😉 Have you heard of the brand ‘Aranzi Aronzo‘ before? How about these characters: “Usagi“, “Kappa“, “Panda“, and bad guy “Warumono“, anything familiar? Aranzi Aronzo started offby two ladies in Japan as a home original goods manufacturer. Styled as kawaii, Japanese for cute/adorable, it effectively created colourful attractive characters featured in their notebooks, t-shirts, postcards, and now cakes as well as drinks too.
This place may not be the most happening brunch place around Banqiao. This place may not be the popular all-day breakfast joints (like the Din*r, Sec*nd Fl**r C*fe, Paddington Garden, etc). But hey! There are a bunch of good things behind the fact that this place does not belong to those two criteria mentioned before.
With the crazily mushrooming trend of cafes and restaurants serving all-day brunch, it is a good sign of overall diet and culinary betterment for the city (can I claim this as my quote? 😆 ). Back to serious business. Clearly, this is current observance of Greater Taipei.
Who’s up for weekend brunch? ME, ME, ME! 😀 Well.. just like any other girls (this is merely my assumption though lol), I am really fond of having lazy brunch over the weekend. It is like one of a kind of a relaxing therapy or simply a ritual that I am looking up to. More over, a lot of choices of cute cafes and bistros are now popping all around (extended) Taipei. However, this does not mean it is easy to find a place where there is no queue.
