住在天母的好友一家在過年的時候, 意外發現 ‘ 金八式 King Box ‘. 因為那時候很多店都關門了或者預約滿了, 這是唯一一家開門而且還有位子的店. 好友跟我形容說當下有種”流浪漢被收留的感覺?”. 不過好吃才是重點, 她們一家一試成主顧. 在我去天母找她們的時候, 她們特地帶我去感受一下金八式King Box的魅力.

My friend’s family over at Tianmu accidentally discovered ‘King Box’ during Chinese New Year. It was because at that time, most restaurants were either closed or full with reservations. This was the only restaurant that was open and has seatings. My friend said at the moment they felt like homeless finally being sheltered. ? However, the taste is what is important at the end of the day. After giving it a try, they found themselves visiting again and again. When I went to visit them in Tianmu, they took me to see the appeal of ‘King Box’ for myself.

▲根據蘋果日報的介紹”金八式源於1988年,最早是中山北路台塑大樓的小攤子,後來家族成員在永和開出第一家店,之後才在台北天母開分店”  . 天母分店的定位是家庭式的料理, 少油減鹽, 採用歐陸進口Oliviers & Co.的橄欖油, 配菜全以水波爐烹調, 以保留蔬菜的原味. 兼具美味與健康.

From the newspaper ‘Apple Daily’, ‘King’s box” started in 1988 as a food stand at the ‘Formosa Plastics Group Building’ located at ZhongShan North Road. Later, the owner opened the first store over at Yonghe. Finally, they opened a 2nd restaurant at Tianmu, Taipei. The Tianmu store focuses on family style meals with less oil and less salt used. They use Europe imported Oliviers & Co.’s olive oil. All the side dishes are cooked with eater oven to keep the taste of vegetables. All the dishes are cooked for both taste and healthiness.

▲一上桌, 大家都為了鍋具小小驚呼一下,裝著獅子頭的是「Le Creuset」鑄鐵鍋, 看起來就好高級.
When we saw this dish, we were surprised by the pot. The pot is of “Le Creuset”, looks high-quality.

獅子頭吃起來清爽不油膩, 白菜也吸收了湯汁, 吃起來很下飯.
The stewed meatball is quite refreshing and not too oily. The napa cabbage is very flavorful as well. Goes very well with rice.

▲金八式鮮嫩里雞排 King box’s signature chicken steak  $170

今天的配菜是高麗菜和青江菜. 高麗菜吃起來有香茅的香味, 有點微酸的口感, 吃起來很清爽. 而且所有菜以少油少鹽的方式烹調, 吃起來沒有負擔. 不會有一般便當菜的油膩感. 簡單的煎蛋上撒有胡椒鹽, 有種在家吃的感覺.

The seasonal vegetables are Taiwanese cabbage and Bok Choy. The cabbage has a tint of lemongrass taste, kind of sour but very refreshing. Also, everything was cooked with less oil and less salt, so I don’t feel as guilty. It doesn’t have the oily feel that a usual bento vegetables has. The simplistic fried egg with pepper and salt kind of make feel at home.

▲我選擇香酥雞排. 雞柳條裹上地瓜粉後炸酥,外酥內軟, 而且份量很足夠.
I choose fried chicken steak. The chicken tender is cloaked in sweet potato starch and then fried. Very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The portion is decent-sized as well.

▲脆皮金八式豬排 King box’s signature pork chop  $170

酥炸豬排的麺衣裡面加了咖哩粉, 吃起來有淡淡的咖喱香, 并帶出豬肉的甜. 雖然豬排不如雞排那麼厚, 但炸的外酥內軟, 還保有豬肉的彈性, 非常好吃!

The fried pork’s flour coating has curry powder in it, so you can taste a hint of curry while eating the pork. It brings out the sweetness of the pork very well. Even though the pork chop is not as thick as the chicken steak, but it was also fried crispy on the outside an tender on the inside. Very delicious!

心得: 金八式 Kingbox的配菜,白飯, 和飲品都可以續. CP值相當的高! 主菜分量很足, 吃起來感受得到店家的用心. 而少油少鹽的配菜們則完美的詮釋了金八式的”自家人料理承諾”! 至於服務, 因為我們是禮拜天晚上去, 店家人手稍顯不足. 幫我們點菜的速度有點慢. 不過還在可以接受的範圍. 來吃了之後終於懂為什麼好友一家那麼愛這間店! 不像一般便當的油膩, 吃完金八式 Kingbox完全不會有負擔, 是舒服的飽! 推薦給大家 🙂

Review: At Kingbox, you can refill the vegetables, rice, and drinks free of cost. This makes this restaurant good bang for your buck. The main entree also has a good portion, you can feel how much thoughts the store owner has put into this. The side dished cooked with less oil and salt completely showcase the Kingbox’s promise of a home-style dining. As for their services, it seems like they were a bit short-handed on a Sunday night. They were a bit slow to come take our order, but still in an acceptable time span. I finally understand why my friend’s family love this store. It’s not oily so I am full very comfortably. I recommend this for everyone 🙂
