After our apartment searching and headaches, we decided on the place we saw Friday night right in the middle of the Eastern side of Zhongshan & Shuanglian MRT stops. The neighborhood is very diverse and has everything we need!
Here is our area in all directions:
South – park and bus stops
West – tree-lined Zhongshan Road, high end boutiques and hotels and MRT
North – outdoor market, small Tokyo (Japanese tourism and brothels)
East – grocery store, cinema
Decent size bed, but look at all that storage!
Walking outside to our balcony/laundry room…yes it’s caged…but makes a lot of room for flowers and herbs! We look Southeast towards our nearby park and in the distance can make out the Taipei 101.
We are surrounded by great food, including European inspired places to enjoy a meal!
Breakfast at this little cafe of two breakfast sandwiches and wonderful coffee as a set meal cost a whopping US$3.40, and such a cute place too!!
The other late morning, we were wandering our neighborhood looking for brunch when we saw a cafe next to a small restaurant open to the street with outdoor seating, the best! Two fabulous lattes and Italian-Asian fusion dishes later we were satisfied. Oh yeah, comfort food!
