From San Francisco to Taipei

Today Meimei and I went out for dinner with JL, a friend from the States who came back to Taiwan for a visit! It was very nice to catch up with him. The first time we met was the summer of 2012, during a summer internship. Then again in December of 2012 in San Francisco (I miss SF!), and now we meet again in Taipei!

First we had dinner at Tokiya. It was a restaurant that served Japanese fusion cuisine, and had a set menu with multiple courses: salad, appetizer, soup, rice… etc. They serve amazing duck breast!

By the time we left the restaurant, I was surprised that it was already 9:40! We were in there for over 3 hours, but it didn’t feel that long. We then ventured to find a tea place that we went with Jon back in summer 2012 (Lattea), and got their famous green latteas. It was green tea with a layer of salty cream on top. The salt brought out the sweet flavour in the green tea, and it was quite refreshing after our huge dinner. Then we just walked around the East area of Taipei, looked around some boutiques, before JL left at 11 to catch the HSR to Hsinchu.

It was so nice to catch up with JL after all this time. :) I know we’ll meet again some day; it’s just a matter of where and when!
