鼠年假期跟讀#776: Taipei Ningxia night market to open pop-up store in Singapore
Following the opening of a pop-up Shilin-inspired night market in April, Ningxia Night Market is set to follow suit in Singapore with an installation between Jan. 16 and Feb. 9.
The Asian Night Market will feature more than 30 food stalls inspired by Taipei’s Ningxia Night Market, according to Ladyironchef, a Singapore-based travel and food website.
Although Ningxia Night Market is smaller in size than other well-known markets in Taiwan, it offers a large variety of street food, such as fried yam balls, oyster omelet, and braised pork rice.
Ningxia Night Market is also less known than other larger night markets in Taiwan, meaning that food is usually cheaper. Further details on the opening of the night market will follow soon.
The Facebook post about the open of the pop-up Ningxia Night Market by Ladyironchef has already attracted a lot of attention, more than 1400 shares, 400 likes and 100 comments.
星巴克花蓮和平門市 透明屋脊式設計全面採光 成IG打卡夯點｜Starbucks Heping becomes Instagram sensation
Following the opening of the first Starbucks container store in 2018, a newly designed Starbucks store opened earlier this year in a tourist spot in Heping, Xiulin Township, Hualien County. Located at the boundary between Hualien and Yilan, the Starbucks Heping store sits on one of the resting areas of the newly ungraded Suhua Highway which was opened to the public on Jan. 6. There is, therefore, little wonder that the new store has already become an Instagram sensation in Eastern Taiwan.
The exterior design features grey cement and high roof ridges, blending well with the colors of the “DAKA,” the newly-opened Taiwan Cement Factory Tourism Destination. With the mountains in the background, the Heping store boasts large french windows that bring natural sunlight into the store.
The interior design makes you feel at home too, thanks to its “indoor rooftop.” The aforesaid rooftop stands above the coffee barista table at the center of the store, not only reflecting the images of nature in Hualien but also creating a homelike atmosphere.
In addition, the interior design features a glass roof so that you can enjoy coffee and bath in the sunlight. It’s worth noticing that the painting hung on the wall displays the unique location of the Heping store, which faces the sea with the landscape of mountains.
