Thanks to Expedia Malaysia (and Singapore), the four bloggers, Xiaxue, QiuQiu, Aud and i flew Hello Kitty Airline to Taipei before heading to Tokyo.
Girly trips are the best because who else is going to go all excited together with you visiting a Hello Kitty cafe?!
All of us, obviously!! 😀
So this blog post is on Taipei!
I feel quite meh about Taipei since i have been there 5 times already wtf, and i told he rest of them there are only 3 places worth going in the entire Taipei, which is Ximending, Shilin night market, and mayyyyyybe Wufenpu. You can visit another night market if you have extra time, but that’s pretty much it la.
I’d really love to explore outside Taipei or visit Taichung or Tainan, but this time we only had about two nights, (yet we managed to have A LOT OF extra free time not knowing what to do) so we only stayed within Taipei city.
Anyway, we were put up at this amazing boutique hotel in Ximending, coutesy of Expedia of course! They select the best hotels!! It’s the mostestest convenient hotel within walking distance to the most happening places, and also very very clean an comfy.
And the hotel also has a lot of hipster art pieces like this one (the reception desk is made of plastic cups wtf), which when you see up close, is actually made by hundreds and hundreds of tiny stickers!!!
With my roomie
Visiting the Hello Kitty cafe was one of the itinerary that we most looked forward to!
Cute giant pink bow omg all of us got sooo excited.
The pastry counter has rows of cutest cakes with Hello Kitty deco!
Kitty birthday cake!
Me with Xiaxue.
We very very excitedly ordered our food.
To be honest we have actually been pre-warned by our friends and readers who have been to this cafe before that the food is really disappointing despite their cuteness. But we were like, how bad can it be la! It’s Hello Kitty!
We even get complimentary Kitty Pudding!
Happily camhoed with it.
And QiuQiu ordered some kind of fruity milkshake with a Kitty face on it!!
And me with my cheese tart of course lolol.
We took picture of ALL the cute food, made sure they were captured at the cutest angle etc etc etc, and then took a bite of each of our food.
I wouldn’t even call it mediocre. They are “marginally edible” at best.
Most of us took one bite and never ever touched our food ever again. Some of us felt slightly pukey (not because of pregnancy) lolol.
And then we never camhoed on the table anymore, everyone was kind of shocked into silence and also because cannot recover from a pained expression for the camera LOLOL.
QiuQiu said it was the worst milkshake she’s ever had in her life and it was putridly sour.
Audrey said the pudding tasted fake like playdough HAHHAHHA.
The chocolate has the cheapest taste that even Choki Choki cannot top.
The apple slices were dry and vaguely rotteny.
The whipped cream was hardened (?!?)
The most deliciously thing out of the whole table was probably the fork. Or the lychee, which comes from a can, which probably explains why.
Such a waste.
We really feel like we paid an entrance fee to come and see some art display of fake food in Hello Kitty shapes.
Audrey’s pink cake. Apparently it tasted like plastic.
My sad cheese tart.
QiuQiu’s sad tiramisu
At least the toilet is sort of the saving grace.
We kinda wanted our money worth the visit so we camhoed like 100 pix in it.
And also at least my photstream is full of cute pink pictures that day.
Before we left, Xiaxue insisted filling up the comment sheet.
And this is what she wrote.
Quality of dessert: SUPER GROTESTQUE
Quality of Beverage: HORRIBLE WANT TO VOMIT
Your comment and suggestions: FIRE THE CHEF LA
I cannot understand y they cannot even make the food mediocre taste.. I mean the idea of hello kitty cafe is such a great idea. I bet they will gain 1000 times more customers if they just hire someone who can actually bake/cook..nnhttp://hitomineko-hn.blogspot.com
Cheesieかわいい(*^ω^*)rnKarenもHello Kitty Cafeに行きたくなりました！rnrn今回のCheesieのブログもとてもたのしかった！Thank you!!!
Lol these are some food which are good looking but then taste horribly lol but too sad that there’s no comment sheet lol
EPIC comment sheet is epic. Y U ALL NO STEAL SOME SHEET BACK
for what!! lol
just write them a note lol
my sentiment exactly
Kaohsiung is also a nice city. You can ride the Hello Kitty Ferris wheel 🙂
New word learnt! mostestest lolol…. Xiaxue has nice handwriting!
‘Fire the Chef!’ Epic Xiaxue is epic… as expected.
i have been there once! I liked it!
HAhahhaha wonder how the chef feels, or already numb bout it lol
technically not a real word, so. lol
Haha I’ve heard the food is terrible. I think they took forever to design and decorate the food that all turned sour/rotteny? Still a very cute place nonetheless
LOL sad max omg the comment sheet even says ‘you are so sweet’ at the bottom
awww…good thing the interior’s pretty which made up for the bad food. maybe they put too much preservatives in it to make it look pretty. >.<
Lesson learned: Hello Kitty is for camwhoring and squealing and not for eating. 😀
Hahahaha Xiaxue’s comments, laugh die wo. lololnnangelicjin.blogspot.com
Hahaha i ordered the same dessert as aud & really taste weird! I cannot describe the word then. Now you said it, yes! It looked AND tasted plastic!!! Hahaha
You remind me of the Powerpuff Girls or My little pony, so cute all together ♥
i liked how xiaxue added “hen” next to “cha” hahahhahaha n
炒掉厨师吧!—>laughed hard. really disappointing. nice on the outside but taste so suck.
Excellent post! I’m planning a holiday there with my girls next year and I know they’ll want to visi the cafe. Maybe I’ll tell them it is pretend food instead of letting them eat it. Sounds awful!
Hai cheesie is the Polaroid camera that sell at Japan cheaper than Malaysia
I totally understand, went there in 2008 excitedly to celebrate a friend’s bday and thought i should order something that has Kitty face in it.. HAHA Ordered a burger and the burger turned out to be the worst burger i’ve ever eaten in my life… I told my friends and they said I was exaggerating coz who can screw up a burger HAHAHAHAHA
omg those desserts!!!nno quality? :S
lols now i read the story behind all the oh-so-adorable food that can hardly be edible = =
Xiaxue Is so cute ! haha.nnwww.queenniewei.com
what you said is so true! It’s like paying to taste food dough which are actually meant for display! i guess they really didn’t bother about the food taste. should not call it an eatery then >.<nnsticky-u.blogspot.com
LOLOL the comment sheet! A pity that they can’t manage to make pretty food taste good. Might as well go out and buy plastic food.
