After a failed attempt to eat at the newly opened California Grill (which wasn't open during lunch on the weekdays while they were working out their opening kinks), we ended up wandering down the street to eat at this fairly decent ramen place, full of mostly students. Their menu is all in Chinese with different kinds of broths for your ramen, but there are a few pictures to point at and a couple of lunch sets. A big bowl of miso ramen with a side of chicken cutlet for less than NT$150. Simple, quick, tasty and cheap- it was a good warm up to what my friends were really waiting for: Ice Monster mango ice, just down the street.
On a hot day like this, it was a nice cold treat to share- and you have to eat it fast so it doesn't melt before you can dig in. I still think the sorbet on top is a bit overkill, but whatever floats your boat.
On our way from California Grill to the Ramen place, we also spotted a Pinkberry knock-off yogurt place- Yogurt Me. I'll have to save some room for my stomach to try it out the next time I try out California Grill.
