We recently took a drive an hour north of Taipei to Jiufen. Jiufen is a quaint town on the coast known for its beautiful views, Japanese-style buildings, and a long-narrow street filled with little shops and food stalls that winds its way up a hill.
As soon as we arrived we took a little walk up to a look out to check out the awesome view of the Ocean and impressive hillsides filled with mausoleums.
We found just the place, Jiufen Teahouse. It’s a beautiful big old building filled with gorgeous antique decorations, plants and ponds filled with Koi.
We wasted away a good part of the afternoon here.
And sorbet wrapped in a thin crepe filled with crushed peanuts and coriander (a Taiwan specialty).
