On a sunny afternoon in July, Elijah and I took a taxi downtown to meet a new friend. She had taken a bus from the other side of Qingdao, and was going to meet us MixC. This new shopping mall is located on Hong Kong Middle Road, one of the main routes in Qingdao. Our friends, The Chens, were in town, and staying with us, so this was a group outing for the moms and tots. Although I had been to MixC once before, I still have not explored this mall yet, but I look forward to doing so. There seems to be enough to keep us entertained for ages!
“So what makes this particular subdivision of MixC in Qingdao so special? Apart from the fact it contains the world’s 3rd JOYPOLIS indoor theme park (other 2 in Tokyo and Dubai), yes a rollercoaster in the middle of a shopping mall! Inside the huge shopping mall, it also includes the most expensive cinema investment in China (with four kinds of special effects rooms including IMAX and 4D) and an Olympic standard size ice skating rink which is going to host the Skate Asia 2015. There are over 400 popular fashion stores, dining restaurants, cafes and entertainment/leisure facilities in this gigantic plaza.”

Baker & Spice is a deliciously scrumptious bakery café chain in Shanghai, China. Luckily for us, we now have a Baker & Spice in our city. Turkish pide, chunky fruit loaves, to die for farmhouse carrot cake, delicious Danish pastries, sinful cakes, cupcakes and an extensive range of specialty hand crafted artisan sourdoughs, traditional baguettes, multigrain, fruit & nut, olive, corn and 100% Danish rye breads. They use their very own Baker & Spice coffee beans and import their own hand selected wines from Australia, New Zealand, Spain, France, Austria and Italy – Unique labels at unbeatable prices. We all ordered quite different meals and each of them was equally amazing. The meals were fresh, delicious and wonderfully presented.
Since we were there with three little ones, we really enjoyed the play area and the fact that we could sit right next to it. Elijah and Violet especially loved the lego table. This restaurant is completely kid friendly. Lots of high chairs, the play area, and many kid-friendly meals on the menu. What a great spot!
