I was in Taipei for a quick 3 day getaway. It was more of a sightseeing excursion but we did manage to squeeze in a few culinary adventures along the way! This is the 7th of 10 parts.
This post is dedicated to all Jay Chou fans!
I’m sure the number one reason Murtle wanted to go to Taiwan was to see Jay Chou in the flesh.
Sadly, Jay Chou was nowhere to be found so Murtle settle for the next best thing: A trip to Mr. J, Jay Chou’s "French- Italian" restaurant!
We went to the branch found within the Taipei Medical University Hospital complex (odd choice of location, I know) where the theme of the restaurant was inspired by his movie Secret.
Since we already had lunch, we no longer sampled the food of Mr. J and instead spent most of our time choosing what overpriced memorabilia Murtle ought to buy. In the end, Murtle opted to be the proud owner of a Mr. J keychain which easily broke after a few months use. (fan trap alert!!!)
Regardless, I’m sure Murtle considered going to Mr. J as one of the most memorable moments of the trip.
Mr. J has three branches in Taiwan. The branch we visited was just 10 minutes away from Taipei 101 via cab.
