7 Better Date Ideas (Part 2!)
By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/04/14

I’ve been in Taiwan for over 3 years now and I’d like to think that I know my way around the city; places to go, restaurants to dine at, activities to do. But it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that one of my great friends, Roxanne, from Yelp Taipei, approached me about finding fresher […]

Epic Battle Day : Paintball – Archery Tag – Bubble Ball
By Chris | Published 2016/01/05

We had been dying to try out bubble ball soccer for a long time, and it had been a while since we had put together an “extreme sport” event, so we thought…”Why not just do all three?” Turned out to be a great idea.

Fairy Cafe
By Chris | Published 2015/02/02

It’s not often that I find myself crawling through the back alleys in Xindian, but I was on a mission to finally find the cafe that so many people have told me about: Fairy Cafe. Imagine my surprise when after turning into the very industrial-looking neighborhood, I was actually greeted with a few very nice […]

Taking a Break in Beipu
By Alexandra Hartline | Published 2015/01/20

  I like to smash things. Or more importantly, I like to smash my food. I found myself in Beipu (北埔), Xinzhu County last fall for exactly that reason. I didn’t smash salty potato chips or double-stuffed Oreos in Beipu. I smashed tea, or to be more exact, the ingredients for tea. Pumpkin seeds, black […]

Dogs’ Best Friend
By Chris | Published 2014/03/26

Red Bull American Char-Grilled Steak
By Chris | Published 2013/09/13

A big ol’ juicy slab of beef, no sauce, no frills. While there are numerous, delicious versions of pulled pork, hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken, char-grilled steak will always be the centerpiece of American BBQ. Big, meaty and simple, steak reflects American culture pretty well, and for better or worse, a proper steak is what I’m craving […]

Catwalk for Cat Walks
By Bridget Di Certo | Published 2013/06/18

A plump, tortoiseshell cat lounges in a shaft of sunlight where she is patted, prodded and all round mollycoddled by tourist after tourist. Her indifference to adoration is one cultivated by excess attention. After all, she is the reason tens of thousands of tourists a year come to Houtong (猴硐), Taiwan.
