5th Wedding Anniversary lunch at Shi Yang Culture Restaurant


I've heard a lot of good things about the Shi Yang Culture Restaurant so I wanted give it a try. However, I've also heard that you need to make reservation weeks a head of time. Well, last September I called them to make dinner reservations for my birthday in November figuring 2 months ahead of time should be plenty of time. Boy was I wrong. Everything was book solid through November, so we decided to make reservations for our wedding anniversary in March instead.

So fast forward to March and there we were at probably one of the most secluded restaurants in all of Taipei to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary.....


The place is located up in the mountains of XiZhi, in the outskirts of Taipei. Surrounded by heavy trees and streams, it's a place of total relaxation and peacefulness. This is the entrance to the restaurant from the parking lot.

346 Taiwan Beer Bar


After spending most of the day in Danshui and drinking bowls of coffee, we made our way to the 346 Taiwan Beer Bar to wind down the day.....


The Taiwan Beer bar used to be located on the side of the road adjacent to the Taiwan Beer brewery. However, they moved to warehouse no. 346 inside the brewery which is why it's now called the 346 Taiwan Beer Bar. I'm assuming they moved so they could stay open later without neighbours complaining about all the noise and raucous. Also, the warehouse is a bigger venue which allows them to host more customers and also have a stage for some live music.


Good old Taiwan Beer. They got real creative with the name, eh?


The decor? Empty Taiwan Beer bottles of course!
