Taipei Travelogue 1.3 (台北自由行Kiko’s Diner夏威夷汉堡排饭专卖店)

When planning for my Taipei trip, I know that there’s several cafes I wanted to visit. But as I’m travelling with my mum who’s not a fan of such cafes, I know I had to compromise. Initially, I wanted to visit the popular Hello Kitty Sweets Cafe for the cute interior but I know for sure my mum will complain because reviews states that the food there is not good at all. Just nice, I stumbled upon Calvin’s photo of Kiko’s Diner. I looked through reviews online and I decided that I will visit it! Because not only it has Hello Kitty, there’s also other Sanrio Characters!

This is how the cafe looked like from outside! It it not the cute, sweet, pastel kind of decoration at Kiko’s but instead a more funky, casual, westernized design. Which makes it different from the usual cute cafes I think.

Very spacious and I liked the open kitchen concept.

They have cute and stylish wall stickers all around!

Kiko’s Diner served mainly American Style food. They have brunch menu too!

kikosdinersanrio

Sanrio Characters! This is usually placed outside the cafe but I think they brought it in as it was raining when I was there!

kikosmenu

Cute menu in the form of a newsletter-ish template. Prices are reasonable, not too expensive. The staff will explain the menu to you before you order, so you won’t be confused.

kikosmenupizza

You can even customize your own pizzas at Kiko’s.

kikoseggomellete

Ordered a Bacon and Ham Omelette with Toast for The Mum. Served with fries and salad.

kikoslocomoco2

I ordered the Signature Loco Moco. It’s basically a beef burger patty with cheese served with sunny side up, rice, fries and salad.

kikoslocomoco1

The beef patty is really good I must say! Look at that perfect sunny side up!

kikoscafelattemug

Also ordered a cafe latte to warm myself up in the cold weather. Love the cute mug! It’s available for purchase!

kikosmeandmum

The Mum is too busy to take a photo with me. But I’m glad The Mum is happy with the food. Of course, bill is on me. LOL.

kikospowderroom

This is way too cute! Gold statue of Little Twin Star in the washroom!!

kikospowderroom2

Cute signage on the door!

kikospowderroomme

I did not add on any effect, that’s the actual mirror with some filter film!

kikosmymelody

Cute My Melody wall art!

kikosnamecard

Yes, I took several of the napkins and name cards back as keepsakes. Too cute!

The cafe is very cosy, staff are friendly and the food is decent. There’s a dining limit of two hours but I believed if there’s no queue or waiting reservations, you will not be asked to leave. However, I still think it’s good to stick to the limit since it’s the house rules. 🙂

kikosmymeal

If I’m not wrong, I spent a total of NTD780 for this meal, which is about SGD34. I feel that it’s reasonable for two pax. You’ll probably spend more for a similar meal in SG.

kikosmerchandise

Tote bags and coffee mugs available for sale! But it’s a bit pricey in my opinion. Sadly, I was on a budget if not I will get the tote bag!

I would recommend this cafe to Hello Kitty lovers and Sanrio lovers! If you’re a kitty fan but your friends are not, I’m sure they won’t complain if you bring them here!

HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO

Have you checked out the HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO pop up store located at the main atrium of Plaza Singapura yet? If not, do check it out before it ends on the 10th March which means two more days!!

A blend of fashion and culture, HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO brings you brands available only in Japan. If you love Japanese fashion like me, you can’t miss this.

Special collaborations with the popular Hello Kitty can be seen in the form of nail stickers. Nail stickers in many fashionable designs are available at affordable prices. Do check them out!

Unique fashion pieces only available in Japan now readily available on our shores, though for a limited period of time.

Specially for the show in Singapore, we have Hello Kitty Nissin Noddles in Chilli Crab flavour, at $2.50 each. These are limited edition, have you gotten yours yet?

Are you an avid Pokemon fan like me? Though nothing like what we have seen from the animes, this figure of Pikachu modeled after a real rat is worth a look.

Or perhaps, you could head down to get one of those limited tote bags (available for purchase) for HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO. I think the design is simple and chic.

HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO is located at the Main Atrium of Plaza Singapura. Last day of the pop up store is on 10th March. Do pay it a visit before it ends!

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia.

Hello Kitty in McDonalds’ Land!

WARNING: YOU MIGHT HAVE AN OVER DOSAGE OF KAWAII-NESS AFTER READING THIS POST. READ WITH CAUTION!

Look what I’ve in my hands! It been 12 years and now once again, Hello Kitty is back to McDonalds’ Land for a visit!

Look what they are wearing! Cosplaying as the main characters of McDonalds! In place of Ronald, Birdie, Hamburglar and Grimace, it’s Hello Kitty!!

Looking smart in their suits! And they are of such adorable sizes! Kitty-Burglar will look better with a mask though. But still mad cute nonetheless!

Just slightly taller than the new refreshing smoothies in McDonalds’ Land~ Grimace Kitty can transform! Let me show you…

Tadah! Grimace Kitty can be Super/Captain/Avenger Kitty with the cap down which will looks like a cape. 😛 I’m have a little Kitty Ribbon on me too. 😛

Not only me, everyone else are sold loving Kitty! Guys included too!!

I’m not in the frame but I can has Kitty! 😛

Kitties posing at the back. So I took a self shot and caught them all. Yes, it’s a self shot. 😛 And I do not own a swivel screen camera. 😛

I want them all!!!

Hamburglar Kitty will be roaming around from 17th May to the 23rd May! Catch her before she’s gone!

Grimace Kitty will come out to play on the 24th May and will go back to maybe sanrioland after the 30th May so go find her before that too!

Birdie Kitty will land on the 31st May and will fly off after the 6th of June! Don’t miss her!

Ronald Kitty will be out looking for children to play~ Visit her at Mcdonalds’ Land and invite her home from 7th June onwards and she will not be accepting any invites after the 13th of June!

Ops, forget to mention that you do have to pay a small price of $3.60 after buying an Extra Value Meal to get the kitties. You can also purchase Kitty at $9 each without the meals. But I will say, treat your friend a EVM and get yourself the Kitty if you’re on diet. 😛

Be sure to get your hands on Hello Kitty while they’re in McDonalds’ Land! XD

XOXO,

I seen a Hello Kitty design on their FB page and Aini, the manicurist suggested 3D Hello Kitty and came up with the above design!

It’s simple yet sweet and not overly cutesy!
