不過,最近有一家新開的藝廊引起了我的主意。

Mayan: Mexican Cuisine
By Chris | Published 2014/02/20

Move over Fresh-Mex, full Mexican restaurants are here to stay. While Taipei has had a bit of a good start developing a taste for Mexican cuisine, much of the progress has been in the form of Chipotle or Cafe Rio style fresh-Mex with only the basic taco/burrito combo. But that isn’t the case with Mayan.

Human Chess at Taiwan BJJ

You caught me; I like to break a mental sweat, too. I meant Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ), not reading the dictionary. BJJ is a martial art which was adapted from Judo (a Japanese martial art) in the early 1900s in Brazil. This style of self-defense demonstrates that a smaller, weaker person can effectively defend against a […]
