Moreover, the price of the coffee is about 150 TWD / cup (~ 5 USD), the western food is about 200 TWD up / section (~ 7 USD). The quality and taste of food in the restaurant is not much difference, but the thing like the western food is that the cream sauce is often quite fat to eat more.
In addition, if you go to Exit # 2, go to the corner of Lugo Coffee (Zhongxiao West Road) then turn left and walk along that road. There will be many Japanese restaurants both restaurants and small booths. The dishes are usually grilled meat skewers enjoying with sake. On this road, there is a popular hot pot restaurant called San ma 三 嗎 臭臭 鍋, a kind of one-person hot pot. This is a chain of hot pot restaurants, so you can find other branches in some other places. However, this branch is the best option. The price is only about 120 TWD / hot pot (~ 4 USD). The food and taste are also very delicious.

The area is also home to many bubble milk tea shops in Taipei including Lattea, Soma, and 丸 作 食 茶.
The most famous tea is Green tea Milk Foam. This is the most special tea of the shop and different from other stores. Milk cream the shop makes is thick, soft and salty fat. Completely different in taste. You can enjoy tea with fried potatoes. A combo costs about 120 TWD (~ 4 USD).

Soma tea (特調飲品)
The menu is quite creative. The tea combined with fresh fruit makes you more healthy when drinking tea in Soma. If you want to be safe, traditional dishes are still milk tea, which is not mixed with fresh milk but the taste of tea is very different. The tea is fat but light, very natural and harmony. This material looks high-quality so the price is more expensive than other places. The price is approximately 100 TWD / large cup (~ 3 – 5 USD) but quite worth to drink.

Wan Zuo Shi Cha (丸作食茶)
The Wan Zuo Shi Cha doesn’t have many branches in Taipei but the tea is unique. The first impression is that the tea is extremely eye-catching, the color looks very good. The drink preparation looks very clean and the bubble is particularly delicious, plastic – crunchy – elastic. Therefore, the slogan of the shop is always “the perfect bubble”.
Address: No. 45, Lane 181, Section 4, Zhongxiao E Rd, Da’an District, Taipei City, Taiwan 106.
