Cauldron Ice Cream is famous for their ice cream on a puffle cone. The puffle cones are Hong Kong egg waffles which are soft and chewy. It is a must try if it is your first time here.  Their ice cream is made right in front of you with stand mixers and nitrogen. The rose shaped ice cream was well presented. As for flavors, I tried their earl grey lavender; strong in flavor and topped with honey.

Tips: you can ask for rose shaped in any flavors

Cauldron Ice Cream 最出名的是它的雞蛋仔冰淇淋
一進店裡就會聞到濃郁的雞蛋香氣
如果這是你第一次來Cauldron Ice Cream
千萬不要錯過它們的雞蛋仔冰淇淋
它們的冰淇淋是現點現做,
採用液態氮冷凍法, 快速攪拌製成冰淇淋
冰淇淋呈現夢幻玫瑰花造型
我試了伯爵茶薰衣草口味
香氣迷人, 上面淋上蜂蜜

Tips: 每個口味都可以要求店家做成玫瑰花造型哦

You first order your food at the front counter. After you order, find a seat in the back.

I got their Hot Italian with caramelized onions and sauerkraut. It is simple yet full of flavor. Their thick cut, double fried Belgian style fries were heavenly like and a must-order when you come here! They were crispy and are seasoned very well. They offered a variety of dipping sauces for the fries, and My favorite was the chipotle aioli!

Overall This place has a relaxing atmosphere which is suited for grabbing a beer, fries, and sausage with friends.

Wurstküche 最有名的是他們的德國香腸
新鮮的香腸以麵包包裹著,
上頭可搭配兩種配料和各樣的蘸醬
配料的選擇有: 焦糖洋蔥, 酸菜, 甜椒, 辣椒
這裡用餐順序是先點餐再拿著號碼牌自己去找座位

德國香腸在微辣的調味之下讓人胃口大開
他們的厚切薯條千萬不要錯過
外酥內軟的薯條搭配的醬料也很多
個人推薦: chipotle aioli

While I have always enjoyed the combination of chicken and waffle. The chicken and waffle at Bruxie brought it to another level. Their original fried chicken waffle sandwich is on the lighter side. The waffle is crispy, and the chicken is tender and juicy with the right amount of syrup added to it. The cabbage slaw is fresh and refreshing. It’s just so delicious! Do not forget to add fries+drink to your sandwich! Their strawberry lemonade was refreshing and a good compliment to the sandwich.

炸雞+鬆餅一直是我很喜歡的組合
Bruxie的炸雞鬆餅三明治讓我驚艷
它們的版本比較清爽
焦香酥脆的鬆餅, 多汁的炸雞,
再搭配上剛好的糖漿和新鮮高麗菜
超級美味!
記得升級為套餐, 就有方格薯條+飲料
推薦他們的草莓檸檬汁
非常的清爽, 很適合搭配三明治

There was an abundance of baby clams over my linguine, and they were all super fresh and meaty. The linguine was well cooked and perfectly flavored with the white wine.

【Seattle】Rachel’s Ginger Beer

Rachel’s Ginger Beer|Seattle


I’m not the biggest fan of ginger beer, but I cannot deny the taste of ginger beer here at Rachel’s Ginger Beer is pretty good. This is definitely a good place for people to come chill and grab a drink. You can either have a non-alcoholic ginger beer that comes in a good variety of flavors or a cocktail. I recommend the guava flavor! It is super refreshing and not overly sweetened.


“Ginger Beer”
薑汁啤酒其實不是酒
而是汽水+薑汁
喝起來酸酸甜甜
最後帶點微微姜的嗆辣
雖然我不是那麼愛喝醬汁啤酒
Rachel’s Ginger Beer的品質很好
他們有很多口味可以選擇
我推薦芭樂口味
喜歡喝酒的朋友, 也可以試試看他們的調酒

▲Salmon Tartine $15

烤過得麵包上鋪上法式酸奶油, 燻鮭魚, 酸洋蔥, 和菊苣
(抱歉我真的不太會將英文食材翻譯成中文)
吃起來很清新, 但稍顯過酸

Baked bread layered with creme fraiche, salmon lox, pickled shallots, and frisee on top. It was refreshing, but a bit too sour for me.

▲Saint Helens Burger $18

他們的的漢堡很多汁, 烤過得漢堡皮微焦微酥, 好好吃!

▲肉醬麺佐培根溫泉蛋 NT$320

我最近有些迷戀肉醬麺
它的酸味令人胃口大開
加上一顆溫泉蛋的義大利麵
多了一份溫暖的感覺

▲Spaghetti with Meat Sauce with Bacon and Hot Spring Egg  NT$320

I have recently fallen in love with meat sauce spaghetti.
Its sourness is very appetizing.
The spaghetti with a hot spring egg adds a warm feeling to it.

▲牛肝菌菇燉飯松阪豬 NT$380

上桌後, 服務員會先幫我們加上一層現磨起司

上頭的松阪豬吃起來脆嫩彈牙

▲Truffle, mushroom, cream risotto with pan seared pork NT$380

When the dish came out, the waitress added freshly grinded cheese on top.

▲Honey Moon NT$400

IMG_9395

▲Blossom Sangria NT$400

相對Honey Moon, 我更喜歡Blossom Sangria
傳統的Sangria是加入水果的調酒
但【 窩台北 】用花朵取代了水果元素
使得整杯調酒花香濃郁
喝起來香甜清爽

Compare to Honey Moon, I love Blossom Sangria more.
A traditional Sangria is a cocktail with fruits.
However, Woo Taipei replace the fruit elements with flowers.
This allows the whole cocktail to be very floral and flavorful.
It was sweet and refreshing.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

心得

如果你要在台北要找一家可以吃東西,
又可以小酌和朋友聊天
且不限時的餐廳
【 Woo Taipei 窩台北 】絕對是我的強力推薦
這裡除了調酒種類很多,
餐點選項也很豐富好吃
其中最推薦這裡的炸薯條和Blossom Sangria調酒

Verdict

If you are looking for a place in Taipei to eat, drink, and chat with friends without any time restriction.
