It had been nice all day during my birthday, and for this, I was sincerely thankful. We weren't so lucky the next day. Since we were on our scooter, with the speed of the scooter, the raindrops were quite painful when they hit your face. We decided to curtail our second day and return to Taipei sooner than we had originally anticipated. However, when we got to the Ilan Museum, we realised that we had used up all our cash, and that they didn't accept credit cards... So we paid our coffee with our credit card, and decided to head to lunch. Little did we know, the restaurants didn't accept credit cards either! It was enevitable that we had to get some cash. So we hopped on the scooter, found an ATM, and got some cash. Then, we went back to the restaurant, thinking they'd be so touched that we came back. Well, they weren't at all touched. If I had known they were such ungrateful dudes, we should've just went to the one next to it...
Oh well! Since we were hungry, we might as well...
After we made our order, they told us because of construction work, the electricity would be out. I know this was not their fault, but somehow, I was still feeling a bit cranky about how they were not at all touched by our return.
First up - cold chicken. There were only two of us, and seeing that this was one of my all time favorites, I ate as much as I could! Very satisfying!
Fried clams. Tasted normal. I think I've been spoiled by my aunt's fried clams, so I rarely find other places' fried clams any good.
Fried sea veggies. I was a bit stunned by the meat in the veggie dish. But, it was sort of expected in these places, I guess.
Seafood fried noodles. It was rather good. But even until now, during the write up of this article, I'm still holding my grudge against them!
I know it was the day after my birthday. But the trip wasn't over! So the beer was totally justifiable!
And since drinking and driving don't go together, and somebody had to get on that scooter... all that beer went straight down my throat!
