--By Ivy Shih Translated by Cara Steenstra

Just off of XuangShi Road, behind the Taiwan Water Corporation's downtown headquarters, is a white building that attracts a lot of residents' attention. Around noon each day, you will find many cars parked nearby, as if taking part in some kind of ceremony. In fact, their owners are all at Forest 1935. Calling this newly re-opened place a mere cafe or restaurant simply does not do it justice. Formerly the headquarters of BCC Radio, the premises were renovated but retained their original style, which dates back to the Japanese colonial era. This quiet, elegant leisure space is a new addition to Taichung's cultural attractions, created simply by giving new life to an old location.

The total area is over 1,000 pings large, with approximately 200 or so pings of it indoors. The building is divided into front and back sections. When entering, you will see the design of an antique radio, emphasizing the broadcasting theme. On the left of the lobby is an artistic area, with an eye-catching fortified glass floor design that creates an interesting contrast with the building's older style. At the back of the building is Forest 1935, with a choice of healthy meals, baked goods or, of course, a great cup of coffee. There are various kinds of coffee and herbal teas. Sip a latte or honey lemongrass tea as you bask in the historical charms of this place. Drinks and meals are priced between NT$100 and NT$650.
