random: cold foods to beat the summer heat



It's too hot to blog.

If it's not raining, the sun is out to get us with its global warming revenge.

But here are some things I've been eating to beat the Taipei heat.

Cold ramen noodles at Watami (can you spot the ice cube?). Even better- I found the Korean cold noodles in a sweet and vinegary-sour soup I loved from Korea in Yonghe.



I've been day dreaming about the mint chocolate chip ice cream from Movenpick ever since I shared a banana split.



And of course, shaved ice. Shaved ice is one of the best things about living in Taipei! Can we eat it everyday?




I know it's not nice to tease you with the pictures and not tell you exactly where to get them. I'm working on the reviews and the restaurant name and address translations. Blame the restaurants for not having English on their business cards and websites!!!! Hope everyone is staying cool.

The one on XinSheng South Road is called Tai E (taiwan one). Very popular place for both summer and winter
