mall/chinese: i still strongly recommend TAIPEI 101

Happy holidays from Taipei! 

If you haven't been to Taipei 101 food court recently you might be surprised to find a sleeker, glossier version since a remodel a few months ago. I definitely was- all the signage has been streamlined and made shiny, there's glassware chandeliers hanging above the new black and gold seating. 

i was so surprised to see the revamp
There's a few new Japanese restaurants with its own seating in the corner near KFC where the pho and Indian place used to be. Things have been moved around a little, including the do hua shop Xiao Nan Men to the back and the addition of a new Hi Sushi and Baskin Robbins and Laetitia. Subway is gone. I guess it's appropriate as 2013 is almost here- out with the old, in with the new.

i thought my fave taiwanese dessert was gone, but it's just relocated in the back

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy new year. With all the craziness happiening recently and even though it might not feel like Christmas in Taipei, use the holidays to connect with those you care about, spread a little holiday cheer and kindness, hug your loved ones and yes, treat yourself to some good food.

i love that even Din Tai Fung is getting in on the holiday spirit, making its xiao long bao mascot even cuter.

Revamping gives customers a fresh new feel to an old place. Surprisingly it works! When our local grocery store rearranged it's fruit and produce section from the back of the store to the front entrance, it actually felt more enjoyable to shop there. Psychology.

Watched the Taipei 101 building fireworks on television last night. It was beautiful! Hungry Girl, Happy New Year! Looking forward to another year of great munching! :)

Subway would be one of the best ways to eating healthily that's for sure..

I regret not coming by here, especially waiting in the long long lines for the elevator up. Keeping this in mind for my next visit! Happy 2013!
