The Dragon" a restaurant specializing in Cantonese food located within the Taipei Sheraton.
We used to have another favorite dim sum place in Taipei but recently we've found the food quality has dropped and the prices increased. I still love the ambiance considering they relocated and refurbished the entire interior but my mom wouldn't stand for it. Since then, she's been on the hunt for our new spot.
The last place we tried was located in the Ambassador Hotel called Canton Court. My blog recapping that foodie adventure from July 2011 can be read here.
I was excited to see what my boyfriend thought of the food.
After our much satisfying meal, we headed toward the Xin Yi district for my mom and brother to get massaged. My boyfriend felt like we had been massaged enough on our trip thus far (once in Taipei, twice in Thailand) and wanted to do something else. We ended up window shopping around the Taipei 101 area enjoying the gorgeous displays while digesting. I also made mental notes of potential gifts for myself and other people ;)
My brother wanted to go home with my mom but my boyfriend and I wanted to explore some more. We ended up in Hsi Men Ding. I compare it to NYC's Soho area where the teenagers and the under 30 crowd hang out.
It was slightly rainy but that didn't stop us from walking around. We ended up having a nice hot bowl of ramen for dinner. It was extremely satisfying.
It's nice to have one on one time with the boyfriend.
