Hello, this time I am going to share my 3 days trip to Taichung.
I am trying a different layout for this post, and I hope you let me know what you think of it.
Thank you guys ?
EAT ⚬ BREAKFAST
肉蛋吐司 Meat and Egg Toast
【 肉蛋吐司 】是台中的超人氣早餐. 店家採用去邊的鮮奶吐司, 所以吃起來特別鬆軟有著淡淡的奶香味. 招牌肉蛋吐司的靈魂人物是腌過的里肌肉. 碳烤過得里肌肉吃起來很香, 搭配甜甜的美乃滋和特調烤肉醬, 帶著微微的胡椒香. 甜鹹交替加上烤肉的香氣, 讓我三兩下就解決完一個.
“Meat and Egg Toast” is a super popular breakfast place in Taichung. They use milk toast that has its crust removed. Therefore, the toast is fluffy soft with a touch of milk flavor. The signature meat and egg toast’s soul is the marinated loin. The barbecued loin was delicious. Along with sweet mayo and house-made barbecue sauce, it has a hint of pepper fragrance. The sweet and savory taste with the delicious smell of the barbecue was amazing so that I finished it right away.

EAT ⚬ ICE CREAM
【 三星園 】開在勤美術館旁. 來自日本的道地抹茶甜點店裝潢非常用心, 整家店以船艦造型打造, 并將其命名為三星丸宇治商船, 入內用餐還要先購買船票.【 三星園 】的抹茶甜點採用京都宇治三星園純正抹茶, 抹茶味濃厚帶這些微的苦澀. 這裡是抹茶控一定要朝聖的店!
“Mitsuboshien” is opened next to CMP Block Museum of Arts. This matcha dessert shop is originated from Japan and is nicely decorated. The dessert shop is made using a shape of a ship, and it is named “Mitsuboshien Uji Commercial Boat”. To enter, you have to buy a boat ticket first. “Mitsuboshien”‘s matcha dessert is made using Kyoto Uji Mitsuboshien pure matcha. It has a strong matcha flavor with a hint of bitterness. This is a place you must visit if you love matcha.

【 宮原眼科 】不是醫院也不是眼科診所, 而是由台中知名糕餅業”日出”經營的旗艦店.
這裡在1920年代曾是日本人宮原武熊興建的私人醫院, 但二戰結束後, 日本人宮原被遣返回日本, 這裡漸漸變為廢墟老宅, 日出集團接收後, 將其裝潢翻修成為台中的人氣景點.
來【 宮原眼科 】一定要吃他們的冰淇淋, 冰淇淋上面的配料推薦選日出著名的鳳梨酥和乳酪蛋糕!
Miyahara is not a hospital nor an eye clinic. It is a flagship dessert place operated by well-known Taichung pastry franchise “Dawn Cake”.
This place used to be a private hospital built by Japanese Miyahara Wushi in the 1920s. When World War II ended, Miyahara was sent back to Japan and this place became deserted. The Dawn Cake Franchise took over and renovated this place to become a popular dessert shop in Taichung.
When you visit MIyahara, you have to try their ice cream. For toppings, I recommend Dawn Cake’s famous pineapple cake and cheesecake.

我是塔拉朵 I'm Talato
【我是塔拉朵 I’m Talato 】是近期instagram上的打卡熱門景點. 整家店的裝潢走浮誇路線, 到處都充滿著巨型冰淇淋, 粉嫩夢幻的色系吸引不少網美前來.
I’m Talato has been an Instagram hit recently. The design of the dessert shop takes an exaggerated route. You can see large-size ice cream as decorations everywhere. The dreamy colors of the ice cream also attract many internet artists here.

EAT ⚬ BBQ
屋馬燒肉 Umai BBQ
在來台中之前我詢問過不少人有什麼推薦的美食, 幾乎每個人都推薦我【 屋馬燒肉 】. 但無論是哪一家【 屋馬燒肉 】的分店, 訂位電話都超難打, 又不想大老遠跑去結果吃不到, 我就一直不斷地撥電話, 在我打了六十多通電話後, 終於在凌晨12點多訂到位置…
第一次來吃【 屋馬燒肉 】, 我和媽媽選擇了兩人套餐. 套餐里搭配的的主廚沙拉加上日式胡麻醬超好吃!! 沙拉新鮮清爽, 很開胃. 【 屋馬燒肉 】的肉質都很新鮮, 肥瘦適中. 每一種肉都可以不用沾醬就很香很好吃. 不過蘸醬後又是另一種美味. 整體來說, 這裡的肉質, 份量, 和用餐品質都很棒. 完全符合我的期待!
Before coming to Taichung, I asked many for food recommendations in Taichung. Almost everyone recommended “Umai BBQ”. But it was ridiculously hard to make a reservation by phone at any of the branches. I did not want to miss out on this opportunity so I kept calling and calling. After about 60 calls at 12am ish, I finally got a reservation.
First time eating at Umai BBQ, my mom and I decided on the 2-person set meal. The chef salad with Japanese sesame dressing that comes with the set meal was super delicious. The salad was fresh, refreshing, and very appetizing. Umai BBQ’s meat was all fresh with the perfect amount of fat. Each meat was delicious without dipping into any sauce, but dipping into a sauce becomes another delicacy. Overall, the meat quality, portion, and dining experience were great here. It definitely met my expectation after all the recommendations.

EAT ⚬ DESSERT
身為螞蟻人的我, 來台中當然也要吃甜點 ?
With ant blood running through my vein, of course, I need some dessert in Taichung
摩德年代 Modism Café
隱身在一中巷弄商圈中的【 Modism Café 摩德年代 】, 店內的環境溫馨, 讓人覺得很放鬆又自在. 推薦他們的抹茶塔; 細膩且甜美. 抹茶塔的塔皮酥脆不膩, 內陷的抹茶味濃郁還帶有濃濃奶味, 入口即化.
Modism Café is hidden inside Yizhong Commercial District. The environment is peaceful and is very relaxing and comfortable. I recommend their matcha tart as it is delicate, sweet, and beautiful. The tart’s crust is crispy and not too heavy. The fillings has a creamy matcha and milk flavor. It melts in your mouth.
No. 138, Dacheng St, Northern District, Taichung City
其實我注意到【 CJSJ 】很久了, 常常被Instagram上的照片吸引. 這次親眼看到【 CJSJ 】的甜點本人, 每個都像藝術品般精緻. 喜歡榛果的我, 選擇了”榛果小柑橘”. 它是由榛果慕絲, 鮮奶油醬, 日本柚子小柑橘, 和榛果脆餅組合而成. 品嘗時濃郁的榛果味充滿整個口腔, 是幸福的味道. 柑橘的酸味與臻果幕絲融合後, 帶著微酸微甜的味道. 整體的口感相當滑順。
I have been looking at CJSJ for a while since I have been attracted to their Instagram pictures. Now I finally get a chance to see CJSJ’s desserts for myself. Each single dessert looks like a piece of fine art. Since I am a hazelnut lover, I ordered “Hazelnut Citrus”. It is made with hazelnut mousse, whipped cream, Japanese citrus fruit, and hazelnut crispy cookie. Each bite is filled with creamy hazelnut flavor and is just so delicious. The citrus sourness fused with hazelnut mousse to create a sour and sweet flavor. Overall the texture is very smooth.

美軍豆乳冰 Mei Jun Soy Milk Shaved Ice
逛完審計新村後, 我繞來【 美軍豆乳冰 】吃一碗由台灣黃豆製成的豆花.【 美軍豆乳冰 】的裝潢帶點復古和文青感. 招牌豆花是很傳統的豆花口感. 送一口柔滑的豆花進入嘴裡, 豆香味在嘴中化開, 好迷人.
After checking out Shen Ji New Village, I came to Mei Jun Soy Milk Shaved Ice to enjoy a tofu pudding made from Taiwanese Soy Beans.
Mei Jun Soy Milk Shaved Ice has an artistic and retro decoration style. The signature tofu pudding has a traditional tofu pudding texture to it. Each time of putting soft and smooth tofu pudding into my mouth, the delicious soy bean flavor quickly spread in my mouth.

DRINK ⚬ COFFEE
washida HOME STORE
【 washida HOME STORE 】其實不是咖啡廳, 而是一家選物店. 店內以純白色為主, 寬敞明亮的空間展示來自世界各地的選物. 咖啡杯上的貼紙很可愛, 是個探頭男生. 店內的冰拿鐵, 喝起來很順口. 悶熱的午後來一杯冰冷的拿鐵, 解放我昏昏欲睡的腦袋.
Washida HOME STORE isn’t a cafe, it is actually a grocery store. The store has a theme of pure-white. The spacious and bright store displays items from all over the world. The sticker on the coffee is quite cute as a peeking guy. The store’s ice latte is quite smooth. I always love a cold latte in a hot afternoon to wake my sleepy brain.

HAVE ⚬ BRUNCH
目覺咖啡三店 mezamashikohi trio
目覺咖啡三店 mezamashikohi trio
【目覺咖啡三店 mezamashikohi trio 】開在精誠街巷弄內, 是由老式別墅改建而成. 它保留了寬闊的庭院, 面對庭院用餐很愜意舒適. 【 目覺咖啡 】的早午餐份量很足, 營養搭配均衡. 最讓我驚訝的是沙拉裡面隱藏著豆腐, 豆味濃郁的豆腐搭配和風醬汁很清爽. 這裡唯一美中不足的是上菜速度很慢 ?
Mezamashikohi trio is located inside an alley of Jingcheng street. It is renovated from an old resort building. It retained its spacious courtyard. Dining while facing a courtyard is quite relaxing. Mezamashikohi trio’s brunch is of a large portion and a balance diet. I was surprised the salad has tofu hidden inside it. The tofu were refreshing with Japaneses wufu dressing. The only nit-pick I haver here is it took them a while to serve my food.
No. 1, Jingcheng 7th Street, Western District, Taichung City
【 ivette cafe 】是我這趟台中行最愛的店! 從外觀, 擺設, 餐點… 全部都充斥著我最愛的元素; tiffany藍, 大理石, 玫瑰金, kinfolk, 酪梨, 酸麵包, 巴西莓…其中我最喜歡他們的小溫室, 自然光充滿的溫室空間, 讓我想賴著裡面不走.
餐點的部分推薦他們的”哈魯米起司 佐水波蛋與酪梨酸麵包” 和 “巴西莓果昔蜂蜜榖麥水果早餐盆”.
Ivette Cafe was my favorite destination of this Taichung Trip. From the appearances to decorations, to the food itself, everything screams “Love Me”. It has all the ingredients that I love: Tiffany Blue, Marble-top, Rose Gold, Kinfolk, Avocado, Sourdough, Acai berry. I personally love their little greenhouse the most. The natural-light filled greenhouse room makes me want to linger and stay for a long time.
As for the food, I recommend their “Smashed avocado on sourdough with poached eggs and halloumi” and “Acai berry & honey granola breakfast bowl”
