Wow-a little slice of heaven

In our precious town of Shengkeng, there is a severe lack of good quality, non-deep-fried, vegetarian/fresh restaurants to eat at. A couple months ago, one of our team leaders, Travis, made a wrong turn down a dark road near home and accidentally came upon one of the most beautiful sights he's seen in Shengkeng-a modern coffee shop!

"Wow", as it's name is repeated each time we bite into each dish, is a delicious bistro, styled in very tastful design, and has incredible food to match the ambiance. Decorated with a projected clock, a runaway merry-go-round horse, vintage chairs, cracked matted concrete floors, and a bocce ball court below, Wow entertains the eye as well as the tastebud.

Wow is the passion and project of Tim, whose taste and eye for design caused him to think outside box and yearn for something more in the traditional town of Shengkeng. After working for a French restaurant in Taipei, Tim began to experiment with his own creations and soon began to dream of opening his own European cafe in the foothills east of Taipei. Tim and his wife built out her parents' house and opened Wow 10 months ago.

Tim stacked the professionally designed menu with goodies like foccacia, satueed mushrooms, freshly-made waffles topped with gourmet ice cream, fresh salmon and salad, and a variety of pestos and pastas. And he has a top-quality espressso machine for the best coffee in Shengkeng. A full meal runs for around US$7 with drink, which is high for Taiwan standards, but cheap for US standards, for the high quality food and atmosphere.

We, as a KEW team, have decided to help Tim in his marketing, as it seems like no one knows about this secret hideaway, since we're always the only people there. So for Chinese New Year, we are giving gift certificates to many of the people who have been kind to us so far in Taiwan, both to thank them and let them know how great Wow is. Tim has been extremely gracious to us everytime we have dined in his restaurant and we hope we can just help his business survive and thrive.

Thank you WOW!
