Modern Mode & Modern Mode Café – 大同區 (Datong District)
Modern Mode & Modern Mode Café 其實是因為我們本來要去的Miss V Bakery 需要排隊, 我們才繞進去附近的巷子里走走, 意外的發現它. 大家可以搭捷運至中山站或雙連站，沿著南京西路25巷走約8-10分鐘，左轉赤峰街49巷 就可以找到它.
We originally planned to go to ‘Miss V Bakery‘. However, it turns out there was a line at ‘Miss V Bakery’. Therefore, we decided to walk around the alleys close by and accidentally discovered ‘Modern Mode & Modern Mode Café’. You can find this cafe by taking the subway to Zhongshan Station or Shuanglian Station and follow Lane 25, West Nanjing road about 8-10 minutes and take a left at Lane 49, Chifeng St.

▲Chocolate Chaud 原味巧克力 $160
喝起來我覺得非常的一般, 喝起來還算順口, 但巧克力味不夠濃郁. 喝完很容易就忘記了, 我個人還是比較推薦Yu Chocolatier 畬室 法式巧克力甜點創作-台北
76% pure Switzerland cocoa milk and marshmallow
Overall it tasted average as I find its chocolate not flavorful enough. I easily have forgotten the taste after finishing the drink. I personally recommend Yu Chocolatier over this.
▲Chocolat Marrons 栗子巧克力 $170
76%純瑞士可可牛奶與法國栗子泥. 相較Chocolate Chaud 原味巧克力, Chocolat Marrons 栗子巧克力喝起來有點沙沙的口感, 巧克力味也沒有那麼濃. 非常普通的一杯巧克力飲品.
76% Switzerland Cocoa milk and French chestnut mousse. Compared to Chocolat Chaud, I found Chocolat Marrons has an extra grainy texture. However, as it also lacks a strong chocolate flavor, it tasted average to me.
▲Berry cheesecake 野莓cheese蛋糕 $90
店員介紹這款野莓cheese蛋糕是開店以來就有的甜點, 味道滿濃郁的, 口感比較鬆軟不走紮實路線, 入口即化. 上層的乳酪吃起來有點像烤蛋糕.
The waitress told us that this berry cheesecake is a dessert they had since the cafe’s opening. It has a rich flavor. The texture is more on the soft side and melts in your mouth. The cheese on the top tastes more like a baked cake.
▲Tiramisu Marshmallow Cookie 提拉米蘇棉花糖餅乾 $90
我們以為這款餅乾吃起來像提拉米蘇的味道, 但發現他只有長得像提拉米蘇. 上層的棉花糖經過烘烤之後融化, (因為餅乾先拿去烤, 所以要小心盤子有點燙), 再在上面撒上巧克力粉. 因為棉花糖烤過之後, 吃起來有些粘牙. 沒有特別驚艷的口感和味道.
We thought that this is a tiramisu flavored cookie, but we realized it only looks like a tiramisu. The top layer of marshmallow is melted after baking (since the cookie is baked first, be mindful that the plate would be hot), and then cocoa powder littered over the cookie. It gets stuck to your teeth easily, and I didn’t find anything special in either the texture or taste.
Modern Mode (Café) 整體來說, 我會更推薦環境勝過食物. 這裡燈光滿昏暗, 店內也不會太吵鬧, 讓人覺得很放鬆. 再加上這裡可預約,不限時,有WIFI和插座,不加收服務費, 所以很適合和朋友在這裡聊天, 或者一個人來這裡用電腦. 對於飲品和甜點, 我就不推薦了. 巧克力飲品不夠濃郁, 野莓cheese蛋糕和提拉米蘇棉花糖餅乾非常的普通.
Overall, I would recommend the Modern Mode (Café)’s ambiance over its food. The lighting here is dimmed and not too loud, very relaxing for me. Also, you can make reservations here, eat without time limit, and no service charge. This makes this establishment a good location for a chat session with friends or coming here alone with a laptop. As for desserts and drinks, I don’t personally recommend them, as I find the chocolate drinks lacking flavor and cake/cookie just average tasting.
