Starbucks, Taipei 101, Taiwan

Available in Bahasa: Click Here

One of the most popular destinations in the Taiwan capital, Taipei is a coffee shop that is familiar to us even in Jakarta we could find Starbucks everywhere. But there is something special with this branch in Taipei.



Located in a building that became the icon of Taiwan is Taipei 101. This building is the highest property in Taiwan, indeed in other countries we may found a higher tower, but this spot certainly has its own charm.



This building contains shopping area and corporate offices. With a fairly luxurious design and there is a large atrium with an interesting photo spots. The extent is not big as the shopping malls in Jakarta, but the brand offered is very classy.



We are able visit the highest floor of Taipei 101 is on the level 89th, but of course at a cost of around NTD 600 or approximately Rp 270,000. To save money, we could go upstairs to enjoy the scenery of Taipei City by making a reservation at Starbucks and making a minimum purchase of NTD 200 or about Rp 80,000 per person.



For information, we must make reservations before there, due to the high enthusiasm of visitors, so we can not access there without reservation by phone. For more information, ask the hotel receptionist or tour guide to call if you are not fluent in Mandarin.



After reservation, we would get a booking number from Starbucks. Arrive at Taipei 101 building, immediately head to the office lobby where we would find the queue line to Starbucks. After a few minutes wait, one of the staff from Starbucks with a typical green apron will approach us and guide us up to Starbucks on the 35th floor.


The place is not too big, with a space that contains about 20-30 people. There are large windows that lead to Taipei city sightseeing. Although not too high, but this could be a moment where we enjoy a cup of coffee and the view of the city from a height.



With the minimum purchase, then I have to buy a menu or tumbler with a total price of NTD 200. This time I tried the menu that is not available in Indonesia such as Rose Fancy Tea Latte, tea drinks with a mixture of milk and rose scent is quite unique.


I also tried the food, Pork Cheese Burger, with pink bun then using a slice of pork cooked with tasty spices. For a country like Taiwan, selling pork-containing foods is commonly to be found around.





It tastes good enough, with a crisp bun texture on the side and soft in the middle. Then combined with pork smeared with sauce and tasty condiments also sliced onion that gives its own sensation.


As an experience, visiting Starbucks in Taipei 101 is recommended enough.With a more affordable price we may enjoy the view of the city from a height in one of the icon of Taiwan. In addition, we may also enjoy a variety of foods and beverages that can not be found in Indonesian branch.
