Despite that amount of the time we took discussing what to order, the waitresses, like in many restaurants in Asian department stores, were friendly and patient with us.
Since we had plans to meet with a couple family members that night for dinner, we decided against straying too far and only stopped for a quick snack (bubble tea and coffee) in the basement of Hankyu before getting dressed.
I will say this now: driving in Taiwan is scary.
There are people on scooters everywhere, and at any given point in time, they will cut directly in front of your vehicle in order to change lanes or make a turn. There is no stopping them. Even with only a couple feet of space between the rear bumper of the car ahead of you and the front of your own, the scooter drivers took no time in hesitating whether they should zip through or merge into your lane or not.
Sitting in the back was quite an - how to put it - eye-opening experience, at least on my part.
I'm not someone with a large appetite, and given that I was still a tad full from lunch and snack earlier in the day, I couldn't enjoy majority of the food served to me. Instead, I just switched to photo-taking mid-dinner (haha).
