Taipei: Fresh And Aged – December 2014

This gallery contains 2 photos.

I know what I want. I dream about it. I daydream about it. The images are vivid and the images are not just images. They are 8K resolution real. They are smell-o-matically aromatic. They are taste-buds-plugged-into-Oculus-Rift-Ten.Point.OH MY HALLUCINATING brain cells … Continue reading

This gallery contains 19 photos.

Taipei: Shin Yeh Taiwanese Cuisine

This gallery contains 13 photos.

I’ll make it real simple: If you visit only one Taiwanese restaurant in your lifetime, it absolutely has to be Shin Yeh Taiwanese Cuisine. No, it is not regarded as the best restaurant in Taiwan. And no, it does not … Continue reading
