Dinho Shopping District, Zhongxiao Dunhua
Tonight, a friend introduced me to the Dinho shopping district behind one lane adjacent to the Zhongxiao Dunhua main street. I'm not sure if thats the right name, but it's definitely next to the Zhongxiao Dunhua station. The main road has more name brand items and fancy lights, but this area on the side has more Taiwanese brands and a much more unique style. First off, we had to catch dinner. We ate at Room For Dessert. It's a small restaurant but upscale, roomy, clean and quiet. The food was OK. Only a choice of 6 items from what I can remember. But what they're famous for is their desserts, if the name didn't give it away. They have more dessert options than food options. I can't remember any of the names though. Just saying banana cake or apple tart pastry wouldn't do it much justice. You really have to go there for dessert! Probably after you get done with shopping around the Dinho shopping district. Speaking of shopping, there are tons of tiny independant shops as well as larger Taiwanese name brand clothing shops there. And of course what would any taiwanese shopping area be, without street venders for clothing too. I also finally found the Lomography store. OMG, they have tons of cameras in there. I really want one because they're pretty cheap. Hmmm you'll find out on the blog if I get weak and buy one Haha. I leave you with a google image of a dessert from Room For Dessert that does it justice! See you next entry!
