Hello Kitty Sweets

After our Taipei 101 adventures, Hubby and I decided to go back to the hotel. As we were weaving our way back, we decided to look for Hello Kitty Sweets, which is located close to our hotel anyway, per our research. I had a map on my phone, which I photographed from a print out. Very few people speak English so it's very hard to ask for directions.

After a few minutes walking and making wrong turns. Hubby was getting very cranky. I had to bite my tongue and contain myself from screaming my irritation. You can see from this photo, how excited Hubby is to be surrounded by pink.

Hello Kitty sweets, I've been told, used to have a branch in Megamall, years ago. But it didn't fly. I wasn't able to go then because I didn't know it existed.

Hello Kitty sweets in Taipei is a novelty. It's not going to win any culinary awards, but, the sheer cuteness of the place and the abundance of pink just calls for your inner teen inside. Come in, sit down and get comforted in this pink fluffy cloud, the place seems to say.

Hello Kitty everywhere, even in the bathroom. Love it! Pink is my favorite color and it's such a treat to be surrounded by it once in a while.

The menu in Hello Kitty sweets is written in Mandarin, no English translation and the people working there cannot speak English. That's what's so frustrating with our Taipei trip, everything gets lost in translation!

Hubby pointed to a tiramisu-like cake, which turned out ok.

The best part though is the strawberry flavored white chocolate hello kitty head. That's very yummy. It tastes like strawberry ice cream. The presentation of the dessert is just awesome.

I ordered the strawberry mousse, which was surprisingly good, light and fluffy. Again, the Hello Kitty strawberry flavored white chocolate was really nice.

We got two free flavored sodas with our order and a complimentary Hello Kitty gelatin. The sodas were too sweet, the gelatin was just average.

Overall, Hello Kitty sweets is a nice place to visit, just to experience the cuteness of the place. The cakes are more expensive if you dine in. Take out is half the price :-)

To get there, take the MTR to Nangang (Blue Line), get off at Zhongxiao Fuxing station, exit 3. Exit 5 is farther and is a bit of a walk (and you might get confused, like we did), better exit at 3, it's closer and less confusing. Hello Kitty Sweets is just along Da'an Road. You can't miss it.
