Getting There and Getting Around
By Air : Taipei's Chiang Kai Shek airport is well served by international flights. All Asian countries have flights to Taipei, with many inter-continental flights passing through Taipei as well. There are internal flights throughout the country
By Rail : The Taipei MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) is very comfortable and circumnavigates the entire island. There are 4 types ticket for passengers: One-day pass ticket, Single-journey ticket, EasyCard, Group ticket. One day pass ticket without limits on journeys, distance and can be used on all routes.
By Bus : Highway bus services connect Taipei with all major cities and scenic spots. There are more than 300 bus lines and the major transfer centre is around Taipei Main Station. Because most of the bus drivers do not speak English, it can be difficult for non-Chinese speakers travelling by bus as there is no English information at the stops.
Local Italian Flavour
This restaurant has many branches around Taiwan. There are tow locate in Taipei, one in TienMu, the other is in Taipei 101.
The one in TienMu is in a wooden building, which looks European. I think their servers has been chosen carefully, they all have good-looking face, however their attitude is soso. Unlike most of my family, I had pork instead of beef. Their pork is so delicious that I've never tried before. Thier pork has been soaken in special sause, and the way they fried it make it really tasty. The meat taste neither too loose nor too hard, just perfectly to chew.
But their dessert is lousy. I had a TINY piece of tiramisu. So don't expect a nice dessert if you have a sweet touth. Their coffee is okay, neither good nor bad for the quailty at that price.
I like their starter, which are soup, potota, and garlic bread. Garlic bread is nice, unlike traditional oily yellow bread, theirs wasn't oily and baked nicely. As for side-dish, I like their baked potato. However, I think I had too much potato that evening. @@"
