TJB Cafe

This is a lovely restaurant, which is located near <Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall> MRT station, blue painting wall that you can easily spot it just around the corner. Through the window, there are some adorable merchandises such as tower or mug, and those make here become a popular restaurant for tea time.

They not just have beautiful decoration but also yummy brunch, and they serve "huge" brunch!

Chicken taco salad
they made some change for this tradition Mexican food, fire wheat tortilla to make it crisp and as a folder for rich chicken salad, with red onion, lettuce, tomato, baby corn and tendency chicken breast.

TJB roasted turkey panini
well, this panini was nothing special, the toast was over baked, made it hard to have it a bite 'cause that stuffing just fell over the plate, but the chip tasted good though.

My favour, Omelet!!
Bacon & cheese makes life wonderful!!! (I probably shouldn't say that 'cause I'm vegetarian now…)

I missed the chance to take some photos while I cut that creamy omelet, I just can't wait to taste it, and eventually, I only left this wonderful moment when it was served.

The price range around NT$ 180 to NT$ 300 (with drinks or side dish), at average price level of cafe in Taipei, but it's always crowed and they don't take reservation!!! (You can only wait outside the restaurant...)
If you don't wanna waste time, suggest to avoid lunch or dinner rush hour!

iPhone App: Move

[iOS App: Move]

I've tested a new lunched app for recording moving distance and tracking work out status, named "MOVE" (category: Health & Fitness).

Download here: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/moves/id509204969?mt=8

It is using GPS on your iPhone, and all you need to do is click on this app before your going out, put iPhone on pocket, then leave it, check summary status while back home.
How this app can really adjust for different speed of walking or transportation, I wonder? But after a one day hanged out with friends (as you may know, girls get together, shopping, cross street to street, one department store to another, taking subway, etc.), this app showed its capability! It not only recorded each section of working distance, automatic pause, and adjust to transport mood when I was on subway.

Here are snapshot:

Taipei ﹡Delicious ➺ Japanese pubs [台北 ﹡食記 吳留手居酒屋]

Late night, after work off, the one of the most enjoyable thing to relax is hanging out with colleagues or friends, especially here in Taipei. Traditionally, Taiwanese like to eat, exotic cuisine such like sushi or grill is far more welcome, and here is trick, look for those special stores on small street, this definitely pay off when yummy meal is served.

And this Japanese pub is one of the best,

What a shame that I didn't take too many pictures for our meal, those all were too delicious, and of course, we were hungry, so we ended up eating all dishes, and I only keep this grouped pic.
