Le Gaulois – Taipei
捷運中山站附近的巷子和小店有點像東區, 走著走著就會發現一家看起來很有情調的cafe. 今天來試試看位在赤峰街的-穀樂法式小館(Le Gaulois).
The alleys and small stores near the Zhongshan MRT have a similar vibe to Eastern District of Taipei. When you walk around the area, you’ll find a cafe that has a romantic atmosphere. Today I am here to try a cafe called ‘Le Gaulois’ located at ChiFeng St.
The main entrance’s appearance is quite subtle.
The cafe is kind of small with only around 15 seats.
▲甜點櫃放著當日製作的甜點, 賣完就沒啦! 我是週六下午4點左右到的. 甜點櫃里只剩下五個, (但後來有其他客人詢問藍莓塔, 才知道他們把藍莓塔放在冰箱)
Here you can find the daily-made desserts in a display counter. I came on a Saturday afternoon at around 4 pm, and they only had 5 desserts left in the display counter. (However, I found out they store blueberry pie in the fridge when another customer inquire about their blueberry pies.）
Banana pie $140
Strawberry Chocolate Pie $150
草莓切半放在鮮奶油上, 看起來實在不想點 😛 如果裝飾的再精緻一點, 我應該就選擇它了. (甜點的外觀對我來說好重要)
The strawberry was cut in half and put on top of whipped cream, to be honest, it wasn’t very visually appealing. If they decorate it slightly better, I would of probably order it. (you can tell I really care about dessert’s appearance)
pomelo lemon pie $130
表面的蛋白霜有用火烤過, 讓我想到夏天BBQ的烤棉花糖. 討喜的外形讓我選擇點它 🙂
The Meringue on the surface was seared and reminds me of BBQing marshmallows during the summer. I ended up ordering this due to its adorable appearance
▲早午餐菜單 Brunch Menu
▲怕吃不飽, 可以加點吐司或鹽麵包(超推薦鹽麵包, 下面有解釋哦:))
If you are afraid of not being full, you can add-on a toast or salty bread. (I highly recommend the salty bread, I’ll explain more later)
▲咖啡 和 手沖單品咖啡
Coffee and pour-over coffee.
There is a piece of blackboard near the counter.
▲黑板上寫著早午餐所以用的食材, 都是非常健康的, 而且看完後讓我好想點他們的麵包來吃吃看
The blackboard has information about the ingreidents they used for brunch, and sees all quite healthy. I would also like to try some of their bread.
The restroom is located near the blackboard.
The restroom is small but decorated well.
▲布列塔尼氣泡甜蘋果酒 Cider Bouche Doux Cru Breton $130
酒精濃度只有2%. 幾乎喝不到酒味, 比較像蘋果汁. 它是甜甜好喝的酒 🙂
The alcohol contentration of the drink is only 2%, I can barely taste the alcohol. Its more like apple juice, quite a sweet & delicious drink 🙂
Only thing is I am not sure why I was given a teacup to drink alcohol???
My pomelo lemon pie! It actually has a simplistic look. Nothing fancy but still quite attractive.
▲上層的蛋白霜不會太甜，反而與下層的柚香檸檬卡士達完美結合, 再配上酥而不膩的塔皮. 一入口就感覺到滿滿的柚香, 再來是酸酸的檸檬味. 整體很清爽, 不會覺得很膩. 超好吃!
The Meringue wasn’t overly sweet, it actually compliments the pomelo lemon custard along with the crispy crust perfectly. With the first bite, I can taste the flavorful pomelo smell followed by the sour lemon taste. Overall its quite refreshing and delicious and I don’t really get sick of it.
▲手沖單品咖啡-玻利維亞 戈巴加巴那莊園(中培) $120
Drip Coffee-Bolivia Copacabanana Estate $120
很濃醇的咖啡, 入口滑順, 還有點回甘. 配上柚香檸檬塔是完美的組合.
Very flavorful coffee, goes down easy and has a sweet aftertaste. Amazing with the pomelo lemon pie.
▲秘製香料雞腿排 Spiced Pan Fried Chicken $280
- 季節蔬果沙拉( 沙拉部分有兩種醬料可以做選擇，義式油醋及蜂蜜芥末油醋. 我選擇義式油醋.),
This dish has:
- It used multiple natural spices with sea salt to marinate the boneless chicken leg.
- Seasonal vegetable and fruit salad. (You have two salad dressings to choose from, Italian or Lemon mustard wasabi, I choose the Italian dressing)
▲ 一上桌, 就聞到香料的香氣, 讓我忍不住馬上切雞腿排來吃! 雞腿排煎的很嫩, 完全不油膩, 事先醃製的去骨雞腿吃起來很有味道, 不單調. 不僅雞肉好吃, 麵包更讓我驚喜! 鹽麵包 口感Q軟綿密, 有點嚼勁. 單吃就很好吃了, 可以感受到麵粉的香氣. 麵包蘸沙拉的義式油醋講和雞排的油也很好吃! 好吃到我還想再點一個!
When the dish came out, you can smell the spices right away, I could not wait to cut the chicken leg for a taste. Its quite tender, not oily at all. The marinated chicken leg is very flavorful and not bland. Not only is the chicken amazing, the bread is also quite eye-opening. The salty bread is soft and chewy. Quite good tasting by itself! I can taste the flour’s rich aroma with every bite. The bread is also tasty dipping with the italian dressing and the oil from the chicken! It was so good I was tempted to order another bread.
水果因為蘸到沙拉的義式油醋, 吃起來非常奇妙~ 咸咸甜甜. 個人不是很愛.
Since the fruits was also dripped with the italian dressing, it has an interesting sour and sweet taste, I personall don’t really like it.
Overall I was quite satisfied with all the meal! I want to come again for a different dessert!
