Anyone who knows anything about me can tell you what a huge fan I am of a proper smoothie! Sweet, thick, creamy – it’s all the joy of an ice cream but infinitely more refreshing and better for you! For this reason, I was so excited to hear about the opening of WooGo Juice, a California style smoothie bar, just minutes from Zhongxiao Dunhua MRT.
Tucked away in an alley behind Ming Yao department store, the place was hard to miss with its big purple sign and distinctive surfboard menu.
Inside, the space is small, clean, friendly and (mercifully!) strongly air conditioned. There’s free wifi access and a few seating areas, so its a nice place to grab a refreshing afternoon pick me up and catch up with emails.
The menu is available in Chinese and English and boasts a wide range of options. They’re all blended with frozen fruit, nonfat froyo and fruit sorbet, which gives them a deliciously thick and creamy consistency – just how I like it! They’re very reasonably priced too, with 400ml (medium) costing around 75NTD and 600ml (x-large) around 105NTD.
I tried the Berry Puff Girl and Raspberry Mojito, both of which were delicious. The first is your classic berry smoothie whilst the Mojito was zinger and sharper thanks to the addition of the fresh mint.
They also serve a wide range of bagels and cream cheeses (the two together costing 65NTD) if you’re looking for a more substantial snack
I really like the WooGo cup – its biodegradable and just a lot of fun to read! Also when I saw the following….
I knew I must be a true WooGo drinker.
Even better, I recently discovered that WooGo is less than one street from Taiwan’s coolest new fitness class, SpaceCycle. (Asia’s answer to my love, SoulCycle). If you’re in the Zhongxiao Dunhua area, be sure to head up to the 13th Floor of Ming Yao Department store (above Uniqlo) and try it out – first one for free! And of course, there’s only one place to go for a post-workout protein pick me up …..
