Searching for Wu Pao Chun in Kaohsiung (Taiwan 2011, Day 2)

Who’s Wu Pao Chun? He’s the Taiwanese who won the title of Bakery Master in the bread category of 2010’s Bakery World Cup in Paris. This is a prestigious competition in the baking industry. In other words, he’s the world’s bakery champion! When I say we searched for him, we really did. To look for his bakery, we walked for at least 20 min, across many streets before finding it. I’ll tell you more as I write about our adventures for Day 2.

We started the day by going to Sanduo Shopping District (三多百货商圈) as we think that MRT station, Sanduo Circle station (三多商圈站) is the nearest station to Wu Pao Chun Bakery. As we were too early and the shops were not opened yet, we decided to walk around and discovered Kaohsiung 85 Building (高雄85大楼). It is a hotel with some shopping. The shopping was nothing fantastic (very 90s/80s feel) but there was a pleasant surprise for us. The building had a observatory level whereby we could see view the cityscape.


After taking some photos at the 85 Building, we went back to the shopping malls to shop for a while before we looked for Wu Pao Chun Bakery. We followed the address we gotten and walked down the streets for 20 min before we found the shop.

There was a long queue outside the shop and we queued for about 10 min before we got into the bakery. Once inside, we were greeted by the aroma of the freshly baked bread. We started placing all the interesting bread onto our trays and before we knew it, both of us bought 8 pieces of bread altogether! It was a pity that we didn’t get to try his award-winning Lychee bread with millet wine and rose petals. But buying his other creations was good enough to satisfy our taste-buds.

After we stepped out of the shop, we took photos with our “victorious trophies”, the bread that we bought! Well, I think most of you can guess what our breakfast for the next few days would be! =P
