Still, I am going to recommend some stores worth visiting during summer, be them famous or low-profile, you should try.
- Banmu Yard(半畝院子)
As re-designed from a historical house, Banmu Yard remains the service of providing fresh vegetarian cuisine and tea as the previous restaurant, Hueliu(回留). However, although keeping a tidy and nostalgic style of decoration, Banmu Yard seemly makes the space wider, so customers can chat with each other and casually enjoy the moment.
