Plaza Premium Lounge Review at Taipei Taoyuan Airport (Taiwan)

Taipei Plaza Premium Lounge Sheena Loves Sunsets 1

The only times when I don’t mind waiting for my flight are when I can either explore a really nice airport or when I have lounge access. During our Taiwan trip, I was able to get in The Plaza Premium Lounge while waiting for my flight home from Taipei to Manila.

Interiors

The Plaza Premium Lounge at Taoyuan International Airport Terminal 1 opened just this year in July so at the time when I visited, it was only around a month old. Everything was new, clean and modern.

My absolute favorite part though were these enclosed spaces that are perfect for introverts like me! Alone in my own little box free from awkward glances (and I can take photos of my food in peace!) I was so excited when I saw these upon entering and was 101% sure that this was where I would be sitting!

Food & Drinks

The Plaza Premium Lounge in Taipei offered a good variety of food and drinks. For drinks, there were juices, soy milk, coffee and the usuals.

For food, there were sandwhiches, salad and four different kinds of hot dishes available.

Highlight of the food spread: you can ask the chef to prepare any of their signature dishes. I chose the Singaporean Laksa Noodle Soup and Creme Brulee! If I had more time, I would have tried all the others too.

Desserts: Red Bean & Macha Cheesecake and Chef’s Special Tiramisu. Later on, they added Panna Cotta with Mango. I got all three to try. Hehe.

And here’s me enjoying my space. I really love my enclosed nook! I was able to FaceTime with Mor and Luke back home without disturbing anyone and I was able to eat my food quietly. The simple joys of introverts. Haha.

    Totally digging the black and white wall with the drinks (and food?), and the enclosed booths! So much feels for the struggle to be able to take photos of food in peace. Haha! Oh, and btw, I nominated you for the Liebster Award: http://pepperonipia.com/2016/10/liebster-award-2016/ If you have the time, I hope you accept. 😀
