Lunch with the Old(er) Ladies

26 May

So I am back in Taiwan for two months for a summer internship. Loving it here so far, can’t wait for all the food adventures to come.

People always ask me what Taiwan is famous for. Well, the first thing that comes to my mind is food. People take food very seriously here. Good food, especially. No matter if it’s a bowl of noodles from a street vendor, or lunch at a six-star hotel, chances are, it’s going to taste amazing. Not to sound cocky, but that’s just how we roll.

So yesterday, my mom’s friends invited my sister and I to join them at their gathering at The W Hotel in Taipei. They had a reservation for 12 for the lunch buffet. Hm… lunch? buffet? You bet I am in.

It’s absolutely gorgeous at the hotel. I have been here a few times last year for drinks. The Kitchen Table is the name of the restaurant that serves the buffets. Though the variety is not as much as some other hotels we’ve visited in the past, everything was still delicate and of course, delicious.

The beautiful pool. I apologize for the man in speedo.

Since we have a large group, we got a private room overlooking the center of Taipei.

Bread was amazing. They had various spreads and fresher than fresh honey on the side.

Hot bar- Chinese style

Hello, oyster friends.

Not sure what the flavor was. Tried it but couldn’t figure out.

Large selection of salad bar. My favorite part of the buffet.

how cute is this.


freshly squeezed juice- grapefruit.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. However, with the semi-high price for this lovely buffet, it was definitely a treat!
