西湖小立吞的位置交通很便利,它位在西湖市場一樓。

搭捷運文湖線到”西湖站”,走到1號出口,下了手扶梯後,一右轉就是西湖市場一樓的入口。
Its easy to get to ‘Xihu Xiaolitun’ based on its location. It is located at  the first floor of the Xihu market.
You can take the MRT Wenhu line to Xihu station. Take exit 1 and go down the escalator. Then, take a right and you are at the entrance of the Xihu market’s first floor.

▲入口就看到大大的「西湖小立吞」立牌介紹。
西湖小立吞的阿緯師傅曾任職晶華酒店與知名日本料理三井上引水產立吞區的料理師傅,
已經有17年的豐富料理經驗。
阿緯師傅開西湖小立吞,期望帶給顧客們『庶民價格,五星享受』。

You can see the ‘Xihu Xiaolitun’ billboard at the entrance.
The chef of ‘Xihu Xiaolitun’ Ah-Wei worked at Regent Taipei and well-known Cusine Matsui Cusine M, and has 17 years of experiences under his belt.
He opened ‘Xihu Xiaolitun’ hoping to give customers a normal pricing with a 5-star experience.

▲西湖小立吞提供有:

握壽司套餐-價位有$250,$400,$600,$800,$1000,五種選擇。

丼飯-價位有,約$250~$380

▲從入口一進來,左邊就看到排隊的隊伍,跟著排就對啦

Once you enter, you can see a line on your left side, just get in the line haha.

img_5262.JPG

▲立食是他們的特色

They are known for customers eating standing up.

img_5256.JPG

▲雖然位子不大而且要站著吃,但店家很貼心有準備勾勾在檯子正下方,可以勾包包。

Even though the seating is cramped and you need to eat standing up, the store has hooks at the bottom to hook your bags.
img_5257.JPG

img_5259.JPG

▲一旁有熱麥茶可自取

There is self-served barley-tea at the side.
img_5258.JPG

▲師傅在炙烤我的握壽司

img_5260.JPG

▲炙燒握壽司 $250
Seared sushi $250

有干貝、鮭魚肚、比目魚鰭邊肉、花枝
Scallop, salmon belly, flounder fin-side, squid

img_5261.JPG

▲我從右往左吃 (I ate from right to left)

稍微火烤過的花枝,帶點焦香味,吃起來有些較勁,但卻不覺得單調無味

比目魚鰭邊肉夾的時候要小心,很容易會散掉。口感有點生生熟熟的,魚肉入口即化,很好吃!

炙燒鮭魚腹是我最愛的!油油亮亮的表面看起來好誘人,魚肉厚度切得剛好,入口後還是感覺得到鮭魚的鮮甜!

最後是炙燒干貝。干貝很大很新鮮,炙燒後顯得干貝更為香甜。

炙燒握壽司,每一口都是享受!

Seared squid is chewy and has a smoked taste, quite tasty.

You need to be careful with the flounder since it is easy for it to break part. It has a raw & cooked texture and the fish melts in your mouth, very delicious!

The seared salmon belly is my favorite! The bright and shiny surface is screaming ‘eat me’. The cut was perfect size and you can taste the salmon’s sweetness.

Lastly we have seared scallop, it is quite large and fresh and very sweet after seared.

Seared sushi, I enjoyed every bite of it!

img_5263.JPG

▲這是店家招待的免費味噌湯,裡面的料很豐富!
有蛤蜊和大塊完整魚肉, 非常有誠意。
而且下咸度調的剛好, 超好喝。
Miso soup on the house. It has many ingredients inside.
There are clams and large pieces of fish fillet. More than what you would expect from a free miso soup.
And it is also not too salty, very delicious soup.

心得:雖然西湖小立吞位在市場內,但這個市場很乾淨,不會有菜市場特有的味道。CP值很高的一家日本料理店,高品質的食材讓人每一口都是享受。不過需要立食,大家如果不習慣站著吃,也可以外帶。

In conclusion, even though Xihu Xiaolitun is located in a market, the market is quite clean and doesn’t have your usual supermarket smell. This is a japanese store that has plenty of bang for your bucks, every bite is like heaven due to the high quality ingredients. The only downside is that you have to eat standing up. If you are not up for it, you can order to-go as well.

下班後和好友相約來一家位於內湖的人氣餐廳-Campus Café美式校園輕食餐廳。

After work, I met up with a friend at a popular restaurant, Campus Café, located at Neihu district.

The store entrance has a huge banner that says “‘Kangxi Lai Le’ recommends this store as a Kangxi chosen cafe” (note: “Kangxi Lai Le” is a famous variety TV show in Taiwan)

img_5226.JPG

▲這家店是挑高樓中樓設計,空間很寬敞,一進門看到周圍大型投影幕播放著球賽,讓我覺得好像回到美國的運動餐廳。
This cafe has 2 floors with a spacious layout, you can see multiple projectors projecting sports game around you, I feel like I am back in a US sports bar.

img_5235.JPG

▲好多學校的旗幟(但沒有找到我的UW旗?)
So many flags of different universities, but I could not find my UW flag ?

img_5228-1.JPG

▲入座後,服務生跟我們介紹用餐流程:選點好餐點,畫好單子→拿到櫃檯結帳→水和餐具自取→用完餐後把餐具和杯子放至回收台。
After sitting down, the waitress explained the dining process to us: choose your meal, mark on the menu → bring it to the cashier to pay → self serve water and utensils → finally after you finish your meal, bus your own tray.

▼他們的menu很大張,有種看報紙的感覺
Their newspaper-like menu is huge.

▲烤嫩雞腿佐和風胡麻沙拉 Baked tender chicken leg with wafu-sesame salad $260

我請店家另外放我的沙拉醬
I asked for the dressing to be on the side

img_5238.JPG

▲木盆沙拉是店內的招牌餐點之一。分量十足的木盆沙拉裡有;生菜、玉米榖片、甜椒、堅果,以及烤的又香又嫩的雞腿。
Salad in a wooden bowl is one of the speciality meal of the cafe. This one has lettuce, corn flakes, sweet pepper, walnut, and delicious-smelling tender chicken leg.

雞腿肉烤的很好吃,有將雞皮的油烤出來,吃起來不覺得油膩,配上酸酸甜甜的和風胡麻醬超搭的。
The chicken leg was baked perfectly with the chicken skin oil coming out, eating it with the sour and sweet wafu-sesame dressing is amazing.

img_5242.JPG

▲奶油明太子海鮮總匯扁麵 Creamy cod roe seafood flat noodle$300

裝麵的碗超大的,風量十足,裡面的海鮮有淡菜、干貝、蝦、蟹肉棒。每根麵都被醬包裹著,吃起來味道很夠。但吃到後面有點膩。

The bowl is super large, the seafood includes mussel, scallop, shrimp, crab stick. Every strand of noodle is completed covered by the sauce, quite flavorful, but a bit too heavy to finish.

img_5244.JPG

▲OREO重乳酪起司蛋糕  Oreo Cheesecake $160

起司蛋糕上面鋪滿Oreo餅乾,下面也放著一大塊Oreo口味的餅乾。整體外型就像一塊大的Oreo餅乾。這個蛋糕很好吃!不會太甜,而且乳酪的部分也很滑順。唯一的缺點就是太硬了,很難切下去,一切下去就餅乾和乳酪起司蛋糕分離。
Oreo cookies covered both the top and bottom of the cheesecake. It kind of looks like a englarged oreo cookie. The cake was very delicious! It isn’t too sweet, and the middle part was smooth too. The only downside is that it was a bit too hard. When you cut it, the cookie tend to separate itself from the cheesecake.

img_5232.JPG

▲吃完後記得將餐具, 拿到回收台喔
Don’t forget to bus your tray after you finish.

心得:這裡的餐點份量很夠也不錯吃,上菜很快。只是人潮真的很多,建議大家先訂位比較保險。

Overall, the meal amount is sufficient and also delicious, and the food comes out really fast. However, there is always a large crowd here so I recommend making a reservation.

【忠孝敦化】吳留手__串燒居酒屋 #明太子白醬炒烏龍 #酥炸軟殼蟹 #鹽烤節瓜 #醬燒牛五花肉串

吳留手 – 串燒 – 台北
WuLiuShou-Yakitori-Taipei


 

在東區享用完下午茶的我們, 想要吃一些鹹的東西, 就決定來到市民大道上的 吳留手 . 繼續邊吃邊聊?

After an afternoon tea at the Eastern District, we were craving for something savory. We then decided to come to WuLiuShou located at Civic Blvd to eat and continue chatting.

img_4819-1-1.JPG

▲吳留手樓上的位子不是很多, 我們來的時候是禮拜天的六點~因為剛開店, 所以客人還不是很多, 但我們吃完離開時, 樓上樓下都坐滿了人. 還有客人在外面等位.

There aren’t many seats upstair. We came at a Sunday 6pm when the store just opened, so there aren’t many customers yet. However, when we finished eating, the place was packed both upstair and downstair with people waiting outside.
img_4814-1.JPG

▲這家吳留手有兩層,我們被安排位在樓下的桌位用餐

This WuLiuShou store has 2 floors, we got to seat downstair.

img_4813-1.JPG

▲樓下的用餐空間還算大

The downstair has a decent-sized space

img_4815-1.JPG

▲店家用空酒瓶來裝飾

They use empty sake bottles as decoration.

img_4812.JPG

img_4821-1.JPG

▲梅乃宿柚子酒(甜) umenoyado yuzu shu(sweet) $150/杯 cup

自從上次在打鐵町49番地試過柚子酒, 我就愛上這個濃濃的柚子香味!

I fell in love with the yuzu shu’s flavorful yuzu taste since giving it a try at Party Team Yakitori Caffe & Bistro

img_4822-1.JPG

▲蘋果酒 Hard Apple cider $180/杯 cup

喝起來幾乎沒有酒精味, 比較像蘋果汁. 推薦給不喜歡酒精味的朋友.

I almost couldn’t taste the alcohol in this one, it is more like apple juice. Highly recommend those who don’t like the taste of alcohol.

img_4823-1-1.JPG

▲鹽烤無骨牛小排 Salt-baked boneless short ribs $200/2串 /2 skewers

鹽烤牛小排肉質很嫩,表面醬汁甜甜的很好吃。

the Salt-baked boneless short ribs was very tender, the sauce at the surface is sweet and delicious.

img_4824-1.JPG

▲醬燒牛五花肉串 sauce-baked beef shank skewer $200/2串 /2 skewers

這個醬燒牛五花表面上灑上白芝麻,看起來就很好吃!牛肉熟度烤的剛好,不會太老,鹹鹹甜甜的醬汁很入味。很推薦。

The sauce-baked beef shank skewer was covered by white sesame, looks tasty already. The beef was baked perfectly and not too old. The salty and sweet sauce is well flavored. I recommended giving this a try.

img_4826-1.JPG

▲明太子白醬炒烏龍 Udon with alfredo sauce and cod roe $180/份

大推薦!吃之前要先將中間那坨紅色明太子拌進去。拌勻之後,就可以開動了!烏龍麵煮的剛好,QQ的很彈牙。店家醬給的很足,拌勻後每根烏龍麵都包裹著明太子白醬,白醬超級濃郁,每一口都吃得到明太子。好吃到停不下來!

I highly recommend this dish! You should stir the cod roe in the middle into the udon before eating it. The udon was cooked just right, quite chewy but not too soft. The sauce was plentiful and every strand of udon was covered by the cod roe alfredo sauce. the alfredo sauce was creamy and you can taste the cod roe with every bite, I literally could not stop eating this!

img_4828-1.JPG

▲鹽烤杏鮑菇 Salt-baked King Mushroom $100/2串 / 2 skewers

烤完的杏鮑菇不會很乾,依舊鮮嫩多汁,還保有杏鮑菇的香氣

The baked king mushroom wasn’t too dry and kept lots of its moistures and king’s mushroom taste

img_4829-2.JPG

▲碳烤肥腸 roasted intestine $200/份

肥腸有先滷過,滷的很夠味,烤完之後外酥內軟,吃起來好吃不油膩

The intestine was braised first and then baked for a crispy surface and soft inside. It was very flavorful and not too oily.

img_4830-2.JPG

▲香烤雞翅 Baked Chicken Wing $100/2串 /2 skewers

img_4831-2.JPG

▲鹽烤松板豬 Salt-baked Matsusaka Pork $130/2串/ 2 skewers

松阪豬肉質比較瘦,吃起來QQ脆脆的,不會覺得油膩。

Matsusaka pork’s meat is lean  and not too oily.

img_4832-1.JPG

▲櫻花蝦炒高麗菜 Stir-fry cabbage with sakura shrimp$160/份

櫻花蝦炒高麗菜是一道我很愛的料理,脆脆的高麗菜因為鹹鹹的櫻花蝦顯得更為清甜!吃那麼多肉,需要蔬菜來調節一下?

Stir-fry cabbage with sakura shrimp is one of my favorite dish, the crispy cabbage taste even sweeter due to the salty sakura shrimp. After all the meats, need some veggies to balance it ?

img_4833-1.JPG

▲明太子雞肉串 Cod roe covered chicken skewers $120/2串/2 skewers

表面的明太子烤的微焦,厚厚一層明太子看起來很厲害。但吃起來有些失望。裡面的雞肉很乾,入口後明太子和雞肉就分離了,沒有結合在一起的口感。

The cod roe at the surface is slightly burnt. While the thick layer of cod roe looks amazing, I was slightly disappointed when I had a bite. The chicken was too dry and also separate away from the cod roe once bitten off the skewer.

img_4834-1.JPG

奶油總合菇 Buttered assorted mushrooms 120/

沒有特別印象的一道料理, 等我想起來拍的時候已經被先吃了 ?

Don’t have much recollection about this dish. When I remember to take a picture, it had already been eaten. ?

img_4835-2.JPG

▲酥炸軟殼蟹 Fried soft crab $220/份

這道很推薦!外酥內軟,蟹肉也很多。

I recommend this dish. Lots of crab meat. The outside is crispy while the inside is tender.

img_4836-1.JPG

▲酥炸雞軟骨 Fried chicken soft bone $150/份

脆脆的軟骨炸了之後很香,皮也不會很快軟掉。

The fried crispy soft bone smelled sooo good. The skin also didn’t get soft fast.

img_4837-1.JPG

▲鹽烤節瓜 Salt-baked squash $80/2串/2 skewers

我很愛節瓜,烤完的節瓜依舊爽口好吃,上面的鹽更加帶出節瓜的甜,很推薦

I love squash. The baked squash is still refreshing and delicious and the salt brings out more of squash’s sweetness. I recommend this dish.

img_4838-1.JPG

▲鹽烤雞肉蔥串 Salt-baked chicken and onion skewer $120/2串/ 2 skewers

蔥有點烤太焦,但雞皮烤的剛剛好,脆脆的雞皮內雞肉還是很嫩,咬下還會噴汁!

The onions was slightly too burnt, but the chicken was baked just right. You can taste the crispy chicken skin and tender chicken meat, and juicy as well.

心得:個人還是比較喜歡打鐵町的串燒。不過吳留手相較起來價位比較低。整體而言,吳留手的串燒都還不錯吃。最推薦的是醬燒牛五花肉串,酥炸軟殼蟹,鹽烤節瓜。明太子白醬炒烏龍也是必點的。

這裡生意不錯,要來吃的朋友最好先訂位免得等待。

Overall, I prefer Party Team Yakitori Caffe & Bistro‘s skewers, but WuLiuShou’s pricing is slightly cheaper. Overall, the skewers are decent. I would recommend getting the salt-baked beef shank, fried soft crab, salt-baked squash. You must try the udon with alfredo sauce and cod roe as well. This place gets quite busy, I would make a reservation first if you want to give it a try

【忠孝敦化】十八居咖啡館__隱藏在東區中的秘境 #濃情多拿滋 #玻璃屋 #不限時 #免費wifi #部分座位有插座

十八居咖啡館 Coffee 18-台北


十八居咖啡館,位於捷運忠孝敦化2號出口附近。

Coffee 18 is a cafe located near MRT Zhongxiao Dunhua station exit 2.

img_4781.JPG

▲第一次路過門口的時候,不看招牌我還以為是一家傢俱店或者畫廊。
When I pass the cafe for the first time, I thought it was a furniture or a gallery store. It was only after looking at the signs before I realize it is an cafe.

img_4809.JPG

▲一進門就看到一個像海膽的裝飾性鞦韆吊椅,上面放著一隻大型泰迪熊娃娃拿著menu,感覺好像店員在迎接我。
When you walk in the cafe, you can see a large teddy bear holding the menu on an urchin like swing, almost like a waiter greeting me.

img_4808.JPG

▲一踏入戶外區,抬頭看到全透明玻璃花園,搭配白色竹編長椅,奢侈的度假風格讓人驚艷。感覺可以當貴婦,戴上墨鏡躺在那走慵懶度假風。
The cafe has an outdoor area with clear glass garden. Along with the white bamboo benches, makes this place feel like a luxury resort. I can put on my sunglasses and lay here all day lazily.

img_4786.JPG

▲室內的牆上掛有風格一致的黑白藝術作品,讓整家店有藝術畫廊的感覺。
The walls indoor is filled with black and white art pieces, makes this cafe have a feeling of an art gallery.

img_4785-2.JPG

▲簡約大方的木櫃上擺有書籍,和剛烤出來的手作小甜點。
The wooden counter has books and freshly baked desserts.

img_4803-1.JPG

▲沙發配色乾淨鮮明,與灰灰的水泥牆形成衝突的對比,顯得整家店更為時尚。
The sofas here has a simple yet vibrant colors, which has a strong contrast against the grayish cement wall, making this cafe quite fashionable.

img_4796-2.JPG

▲這個高腳椅的幅度坐起來蠻舒服的
This barstool is comfortable to sit on with its shape.

img_4804.JPG

▲長桌子適合一大群朋友坐在一起聊天,長桌上的檯燈好有設計感。
The long table is fitting for lots of friends to sit together and chat away, the lamps on the tables is quite creative.

img_4805.JPG

▲坐在室內往窗外看到花園的景色,讓人有種不在東區的錯覺
When you are inside the cafe and look out into the garden, it feels like I am not in the middle of the Eastern District.

img_4782.JPG

▲櫃檯上展示的手作甜點看起來都好上相,好好吃,好難抉擇喔。 不過愛榛果的我,還是忠心選擇有榛果的「濃情多拿滋」.
I had trouble deciding on the dessert since they all look quite pretty and delicious. However, since I am crazy about hazelnut, I still ended up picking the passion donut since it has hazelnut.

img_4787.JPG

▲新餐點菜單
New Summer Menu

img_4788.JPG

▲好多飲品可以選擇,大家可以點開來看大圖
There are many drinks to choose from.

img_4794.JPG

▲開放式廚房可以親眼看到廚師製作甜點過程, 也可以看到真實的廚房景象, 我坐在面對廚房的位置, 一直看到店員們在吃自己家的甜點, 根本就是活招牌
You can see the dessert making process with the open-kitchen. My seating is directly facing the kitchen, and I keep seeing the employees eating their own desserts, what a great living advertisement.

img_4798.JPG

▲廚師在製作我們的”松露荷蘭醬厚鬆餅”
The pastry chef is making our Netherland Truffle Waffle

img_4790.JPG

▲濃情多拿滋 Passion Doughnut $260

開心果蛋糕, 榛果果仁, 法式酥餅
Pastachio cake, hazelnut, french cookie

img_4789.JPG

img_4795.JPG

▲老實說, 這道甜點很一般, 我覺得我期望太高, 榛果軟掉了讓我些許失望, 下面的法式酥餅也不夠酥. 蛋糕的部分吃不太出來開心果的味道 🙁 或許我當初該聽店員建議點草莓塔
To be honest, this dessert is just so-so tasting to me, perhaps my expectation was too high. The hazelnut was too soft, and the cookie on the bottom was not crispy enough. I also could not taste the pistachio at all from the cake 🙁  Perhaps I should have listened to the waitress’ recommendation of a strawberry tart.

img_4793.JPG

▲拿鐵 latte $250

拿鐵的拉花好美, 像一幅畫. 奶泡打的很綿密, 咖啡也很香. 是杯完美的拿鐵.
Beautiful picture-like latte art. The cream was foamy, coffee has a great aroma, a perfect latte.

img_4800-1.JPG

▲松露荷蘭醬厚鬆餅 Netherland Truffle Waffle $360

img_4802.JPG

▲我們是衝著菜單上的皇冠推薦點的. 一入口就覺得味道很複雜有趣, 鬆餅甜甜的, 起司鹹鹹的, 下面的荷蘭醬酸酸的, 整體混合了三種味道, 不難吃. 但是我也沒有很喜歡.
We ordered this due to the ‘crown'(recommendation) on the menu. This dish has a complicated and interesting taste. The waffle is sweet, cheese is salty, the Netherland-style sauce is sour. The three different taste combined isn’t bad, but not something I love either.

心得:這裡的裝潢和擺設真的是無可挑剔,整體佈置簡單時尚又大方。座位和座位之間不會靠太近,很適合優雅下午茶加上大聊特聊。店員服務也很好,會一直幫我們加水和主動告知下午茶飲料搭配甜點的組合優惠。只是今天的甜點和鹹食我都不愛, 而且這家的價位真的蠻高的,一杯飲品+一份甜點或鹹食 就要五百起跳。這些只是我的感受, 給大家參考.

Here is my personal opinion for the cafe. Overall, I would rate the decoration A+ for being stylish, simple, and open. Ample spaces between the seatings, very suitable for an afternoon-tea chat session.  The service was also great as the waitresses re-fill our water without us asking and recommends drinks and dessert pairings and discounts. However, I did not particularly like the desserts or the savory dish today, and the pricing isn’t cheap either. One drink and a sweet/savory dish will make you at least 500$ poorer.

【板橋】Merci Petit__鄉村風雜貨咖啡廳 #不推薦早午餐 #不限時 #免費wifi #有插座

 Merci Petit-板橋


Merci 位在新民街, 而新民街是在板橋遠百旁邊的住宅區. 在新民街這條巷子內, Merci在有兩間店,一間是Merci Café,專賣早午餐和義大利麵,另一間則是Merci Petit,專賣生活雜貨的下午茶店。今天要來去試試Merci Petit.

Merci is located at XinMin St, which is the residential area near BanQiao Far-Eastern Department Store. Merci has two different stores. One is Merci Café which serves brunch and pasta. The other is Merci Petit which is an afternoon tea store that also sells household items.

img_4746.JPG

▲Merci Petit的店門口, 被店家種植的植物遮起來, 晚上光線不加, 我差點找不到.

The entrance of Merci Petit is hidden away by the store’s plants. I almost didn’t find it since it was dark already.

img_4748.JPG

▲Merci Petit走法國鄉村風, 店內桌位不多,但鵝黃燈光配上長長的木桌讓人覺得好溫馨。我是禮拜五下班後去, 店裡只有我一個客人.店裡播放著輕快地鄉村音樂, 整個很放鬆很舒適.

Merci Petit go with a french village style. There aren’t many seatings inside the store, but the lighting and the long benches make one feel very comfortable. I came by after work Friday afternoon. I was the only customer in the cafe. The cafe was playing cheerful country music which is quite relaxing.

img_4760.JPG

▲店內的角落很多乾燥花,這些乾燥花很搭店內南法的鄉村風格.

The corner of the cafe has many dried flowers which are very fitting to the southern french village style.

img_4757.JPG

▲這些盆栽可以買回家 🙂
You can buy these pot plants home 🙂

img_4754.JPG

▲Merci petit不僅是咖啡店,同時也是文具雜貨專賣店,店內有許多來自不同國家的小東西, 像是照片上就是來自日本的文具. 整家店都可以慢慢逛, 很適合喜歡文具雜貨的人, 可以來這裡尋找寶貝.

Not only is Merci petit a cafe, but also sells stationaries and household items. There are many items from various countries. The picture’s stationaries came from Japan. If you are into stationaries, this is a good shop to find hidden gems.

餐點不多,主要有帕尼尼、咖喱、沙拉、手工甜點、鬆餅、拿鐵、咖啡、茶、新鮮果汁、牛奶和啤酒.

There isn’t many choices when it comes to food. There are mainly paninis, curry, salad, hand-made desserts, waffles, latte, coffee, tea, fresh juice, milk, and beer.

▲菜單背面有介紹兩款早午餐,
The back of the menu shows two kind of brunch dishes.

img_4752.JPG

▲冰箱裡的檸檬塔和提拉米蘇看起來好誘人

The fridge’s lemon tart and tiramisu is so tempting.

img_4759.JPG

▲水在櫃檯前面, 要自取哦
Water is self-served at the counter.

img_4761.JPG

▲整家店感覺很多東西, 似乎有些雜亂, 但是仔細看, 又覺得別有一番風味

The cafe seems a bit chaotic with all the stuff, but if look closely, it kind of has its own taste and grows on you.

img_4762.JPG

▲田園青醬雞肉 Chicken Pesto Panini $160

img_4763.JPG

▲我對這個帕尼尼很失望. I am disappointed at this panini.

先從外表上說, 整個帕尼尼並沒有完全結合在一起, 很容易會”走山” . 整個帕尼尼只有上面有壓痕, 下面完全沒有.

從味道上說, 裡面青醬的羅勒味比較像亞洲的羅勒, 而不是法式的. 雞肉薄薄一層幾乎吃不太到, 感覺好像偷工減料. 生菜到是滿新鮮的.應該是因為青醬的關係, 吃到後面感覺Panini有點干, 有點咸.

In terms of appearance, the panini wasn’t together as one, with everything shifting around. Only the top of panini has press-mark, the bottom didn’t.

In terms of taste, the pesto sauce tasted more like Asian basil instead of French. The chicken was so thin I couldn’t even taste it. Feel kind of cheated. The salad, however, is quite fresh. Maybe because its pesto sauce, as I eat the panini, it felt kind of dry and salty.

img_4764.JPG

▲配菜的鮮蔬小沙拉, 比起帕尼尼來說, 好吃多了! 酸酸的意式油醋配上新鮮的生菜, 很開胃好吃!

The fruit salad tasted so much better compared to the panini. The sour Italian dressing goes well with the fresh salad and very appetizing.

我很喜歡這家店放鬆的法式鄉村風味, 但餐點真的不推薦.

I like the relaxing atmosphere of the cafe, but the food here is just meh.

已歇業【板橋】樹兒咖啡 Bagel Tree

樹兒咖啡 Bagel Tree-板橋


板橋附近也有不少早午餐, 今天來試試看位在板橋遠東百貨附近的樹兒咖啡.

There are quite a few brunch places near Banqiao. Today I am going to try ‘Bagel Tree’ located near the Banqiao Far Eastern Department Store.

▲店門口的小黑板寫著店家的新菜色. (不過裝飾似乎該換了~~都已經春天了?)

The main entrance’s blackboard has the cafe’s newest dishes. (However, they should probably update their decoration as its already spring?)

img_4711.JPG

▲黑板上的塗鴉看起來是很有童趣的一家店

The doodle on the blackboard gives it a laid-back atmosphere.

img_4709-1.JPG

▲一進門就看到舒適的沙發座,感覺很適合下午茶坐著聊天~不太適合吃正餐就是了.

You can see comfortable sofas when you walk into the cafe. Seems like a great place for an afternoon tea chat. Doesn’t seem fit for a formal meal though.

img_4700-1.JPG

▲這裡有提供免費的wifi

▲櫃檯上的小黑板寫著限量手作甜點,感覺還不錯, 下次可以試試看

The blackboard over the counter shows hand-made desserts. Looks decent, and I would like to try some next time.

img_4697.JPG

▲櫃檯後方鋪有木地板, 是和室區. 感覺很適合帶年紀小一點的小孩子來. 他們可以在上面玩

Behind the counter, there is a Japanese-style wood floor based room. Feels like a good place to bring kids as they can play on the wooden floor.

▲花生佐蛋沙拉 Egg salad with peanut sauce $129

特質花生醬, 水煮蛋沙拉, 鮮奶吐司, 農場水果沙拉, 薯條

Special peanut sauce, hard-boiled egg salad, milk toast, fruit salad, fries.

img_4706.JPG

▲白色的野餐盒裡面有薯條、小份沙拉、水果與花生佐蛋沙拉三明治,

The white picnic box has fries, salad, fruit, and the egg salad with peanut sauce sandwich.

蛋奶素食者可以享用的早餐. 薯條和一般早餐店差不多. 三明治滿清爽的, 花生醬的味道也不會太突出.

Here is a dish that vegetarians can also enjoy. Fries is similar to other breakfast joints. The sandwich is quite refreshing and the peanut sauce is not too heavy.

img_4705.JPG

▲德式好香腸 German Sausage $180

嫩炒蛋, 雙德式香腸,主廚濃湯, 農場水果沙拉, 蜂蜜鬆餅
Tender fried egg, double german sausage, house chowder, fruit salad, honey waffle.

這一份一上桌, 大家都驚呼分量也太足了吧! 這樣的價位, 配上這麼豐盛的餐點, CP值很高!  這是我第一次看到店家把德式香腸劃開, 讓它彎彎的, 看起來蠻可愛的. 旁邊的嫩炒蛋, 吃起來比較像omelette, 很滑嫩.

We were so surprised by the amount of food when this dish shows up. With the price, makes this a good deal. This is the first time I see german sausages cut up cross-wise to make it bend and cute-looking. The egg on the side tastes the omelette.

img_4707.JPG

胡麻蛋捲捲 Omelette with sesame sauce $190

主廚特製蛋捲, 薯條, 水果盅, 胡麻醬,蜂蜜鬆餅
House Omelette, fries, fruit cup, sesame sauce, honey waffle.

img_4708.JPG

▲主廚特製蛋捲裡面有cheese、臘腸、甜椒等等材料,也是非常豐盛. 配上旁邊的胡麻醬超級好吃! 胡麻醬好吃到讓我覺得它是主角 ?

The house omelette has lots of fillings such as cheese, sausage, sweet peppers, etc… It is amazing with the sesame sauce. The sesame sauce is so good I feel it is the star of this dish.

我對鬆餅非常失望, 照片應該看得出鬆餅的洞吧. 可以明顯感受到店家做鬆餅的時候麵糊不夠, 硬做出只有”框架”的鬆餅. 咬下去也不香. 而且鬆餅既不軟也不脆, 反而是難以咬斷的口感 ☹️  糖漿也沒有另外提供. 超級失望!

I am very disappointed about the waffles, you can tell from the picture that they did not use enough flour/batter to make the waffle. The end result is a waffle that only has the skeleton. Not soft, not crispy, kind of hard to chew texture. They also did not provide syrup on the side… So disappointed.

整體來說算是CP值蠻高的店, 價位比起台北的早午餐便宜快一半 (他們不收取服務費), 分量也很足.

Overall, the place provides good value for the price. The cost is almost half compared to other brunch places in Taipei (Also no service charge here).

打鐵町49番地,這間位在捷運中山站和雙連站中間的居酒屋是朋友找到的。
Party Team Yakitori Caffe & Bistro is located between MRT Zhongshan station and Shuanglian station, and was found and suggested by my friend.

▲店面小小的,不是很起眼

The storefront is quite small and not really eye-catching.

▲下著大雨的晚上六點多,門口就坐著滿滿的人!

It was a rainy Saturday night at around 6, but it was already filled with people!!

▲因為我們願意併桌,所以沒有等就入座了。餐廳內燈光有些昏暗配上日本音樂,讓人感覺很放鬆!

Because we don’t mind sharing tables, we didn’t’ need to wait for a seat. The restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere with its dim lighting and Japanese music.

img_4673

▲店內到處都貼著日文。讓我覺得好像身處日本.

You can find Japanese everywhere in the restaurant, kind of make me feel like I am in Japan.

img_4687

▲櫃台上放著滿滿的酒.(居酒屋當然很多酒?)

The counter is stashed with lots and lots of alcohol. (I mean what do you expect from a Japanese-style Yakitori place ?)

img_4688

▲廚房採開放式,小小的廚房擠著三四位廚師。他們上菜速度算蠻快的。

Here is the small open kitchen cramped with 3-4 chefs. The service is quite fast though.

img_4665

店裡空間不大,所以桌子下面提供竹籃給客人放東西。因為我當天還帶著一盒買給朋友的禮物,店家發現我放不進去,也發現是禮物,貼心的跟我說他幫我放在另一個地方不會壓到,但我要記得跟他拿 ?

Since the restaurant itself is cramped, the restaurant provides baskets below your table for storing your personal belongings. The waitress saw that I could not fit a gift I bought for my friend into the basket and nicely offered to put it somewhere else safe for me, as long as I remember to get it back from her. ?

▲梅乃宿 柚子酒 umenoyado yuzu shu (NT180)

一入口就驚為天人, 濃郁的柚子香在嘴裡散開,喝起來酸酸甜甜。非常爽口好喝!

 This alcoholic drink tasted amazing! The flavorful yuzu smell and its sour and sweet taste was very refreshing and delicious!

img_4675-1

▲特調 hmmmm 我沒有很愛,

這是店員推薦的特調, 但發現我不愛後有換柚子酒給我. 小小讚許一下他們的服務.

A waitress recommended this cocktail to me, but I did not like it. When they found out I didn’t like it, they switched it out for a yuzu shu at no cost.  Big plus to their customer service.

img_4677-1

▲烤玉米筍 Baked baby corn NT60

鮮甜的烤玉米筍上面灑上香鬆,一入口就驚呼好吃! 一口咬下去感受得到清脆的滋味,也讓我們胃口大開!

Freshly baked baby corn with shiang song was sweet and delicious tasting! Every bite was pleasing and appetizing.

img_4683

▲味增松阪豬 Miso Matsusaka pork NT190

因為朋友不愛肥肉,所以我們沒有點店員推薦的「鹽烤三層肉」,而是選擇肉質比較瘦的「味增松阪豬」. 外表烤的些許焦的松阪豬配上甜甜鹹鹹的味增醬和嗆辣的蔥花,是一道重口味的料理,很適合下酒!只是肉質稍微有點太硬,咬到後面嘴巴有點酸。

Since my friend isn’t fond of fatty meats, so we didn’t order the ‘salt baked pork belly’ recommended by the waitress. Instead, we ordered the ‘Miso Matsusaka Pork’ which had leaner meat. The crispy surface, sweet and sour miso sauce, and scallion made it a heavy dish and very complimentary to alcohol. However, the meat was slightly too dry and my mouth was kind of sore from all the chewing.

img_4680

▲酒蒸蛤蜊 Wine-Steamed Clams NT120

蛤蠣湯簡單的以薑絲、蔥、九層塔、和酒提味,喝起來很清甜,也喝得出濃濃的酒味!一整碗滿滿的蛤蠣,也讓我們吃的很滿足.

The clam soup is made with ginger, scallion, basil, and wine. You can taste the sweetness of the calm and the wine as well. The bowl was full with clams and very satisfying.

img_0752

▲綜合嫩雞八味串 Chicken Mix Skewers NT 480

我個人喜歡的順序:
明太子>芝士>海苔藻>原味>青蔥>青醬>咖喱>酸辣

Here is my ranking from my favorite to my least favorite
Mentaiko (Cod roe) > Cheese > Seaweed > Original > Scallion > Pesto > Curry > Sour & Spicy

img_4678

▲明太子烤雞肉串 Mentaiko (Cod roe) Yakitori NT120

登登登!隆重推薦這道!這是今晚我覺得最好吃的串燒!這道料理要趁熱趕快吃。一口咬下,包裹在雞腿肉外的明太子美乃滋就在嘴裡化開,因為是雞腿肉,所以肉質特別嫩。明太子的海鮮味和雞肉的肉汁在嘴裡擴散開來,超級搭的,也讓這道料理榮登第一名寶座!?

(Drumroll please…) Highly recommended this dish, this is the best skewer of the night! You must have this while it is still hot. When you take a bite, the mentaiko mayo on the outside of the chicken melts in your mouth. Since is chicken lege, the meat is also very tender. The mentaiko’s flavor and chicken are just amazing together and hence my #1 dish of the night! ?

IMG_0750

▲烤杏鮑菇 Grilled King Mushroom NT 80
奶油味非常的濃郁, 吃起來很有較勁, 也很多汁
It’s got a creamy butter flavor, chewy, and quite juicy as well.

img_0751

▲烤香菇 Grilled mushroom NT 60
烤香菇雖然很常見, 但是烤的好不好吃也需要技巧。
打鐵町49番地的烤香菇沒有因為燒烤而乾扁流失水分,
每顆都飽滿而且將水分緊緊的被鎖在裡頭,
搭配簡單的調味帶出菇本身的甜味

Grilled mushroom is common, but it is still a skill to roast it right.
The grilled mushroom here did not lose water by grilling.
Each individual mushroom lock the water inside.
Along with simple seasoning, they brought out the mushroom’s innate mushroom.

img_4684

▲烤鮭魚飯團 Baked salmon onigiri (rice ball) NT65

我個人很喜歡烤飯糰,很著迷於烤飯糰外面那層鍋巴。但這個烤飯糰相比其他,我覺得顯得遜色許多,不是很推薦。

I personally like baked onigiri in general since I am fond of the rice crust on the surface of the onigiri. However, this onigiri is just average in my opinion compared to other onigiris I’ve had before.

img_4685

▲烤麻糬 Baked Mochi NT90

吃完鹹的,想吃個甜的作完美ending。表皮烤至微焦的麻糬裹滿煉乳,沾上花生粉。一入口讓人感受到烤麻糬特有的焦香味,好好吃!也讓這一餐畫下完美的句點!

After all the savory dishes, we wanted to have a sweet dish for a perfect ending to our dinner. The surface is baked until brown and the mochi is filled with condensed milk. Before you eat it you would cover it with the peanut powder. You can taste the baked mochi’s one-of-a-kind charred smell, so delicious! This ended our meal perfectly.

這一餐我們吃了NT 1150,應該是有加收一成服務費。算是不便宜的居酒屋,但幾乎無地雷!讓我默默加入口袋名單!

Overall we spent NT 1150 for two people, I am guessing there is a 10% tip added. This is on the expensive side, but I didn’t have anything that I didn’t like. I am adding this place to my  pocket-list.!

穀樂法式小館 -台北
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.
img_4645.JPG

▲店門口的外觀很低調

The main entrance’s appearance is quite subtle.

img_4629.JPG

▲店裡空間不大, 只有15個左右的座位

The cafe is kind of small with only around 15 seats.

img_4631.JPG

▲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.)

img_4639.JPG

▲香蕉塔 $140

Banana pie $140

img_4640.JPG

▲草莓巧克力塔 $150
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)

img_4641.JPG

▲柚香檸檬塔 $130
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)
img_4638.JPG

▲咖啡 和 手沖單品咖啡

Coffee and pour-over coffee.

img_4643-1.JPG

▲櫃檯旁邊有塊小黑板

There is a piece of blackboard near the counter.

img_4642.JPG

▲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.

img_4644.JPG

▲水要自取

Self-served water.

▲雖然廁所很小, 但也裝飾的很用心

The restroom is small but decorated well.

img_4647.JPG

▲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 🙂

只是不懂為什麼店家給我一個茶杯來喝酒.

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???

img_4648.JPG

▲我的柚香檸檬塔. 它的外型其實很簡單,不花俏但卻好吸引人.

My pomelo lemon pie! It actually has a simplistic look. Nothing fancy but still quite attractive.

img_4655.JPG

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.

img_4659.JPG

▲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.

img_4656.JPG

▲秘製香料雞腿排 Spiced Pan Fried Chicken $280

這道料理有:

  1. 事先用多種天然香料混合海鹽醃製而成的去骨雞腿,
  2. 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.),
  3. 星野酵母與日本麵粉揉和發酵製作的鹽麵包

This dish has:

  1. It used multiple natural spices with sea salt to marinate the boneless chicken leg.
  2. Seasonal vegetable and fruit salad. (You have two salad dressings to choose from, Italian or Lemon mustard wasabi, I choose the Italian dressing)

img_4658.JPG

 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.

所有餐點我都好滿意! 下次想來嘗試不一樣的甜點!

Overall I was quite satisfied with all the meal! I want to come again for a different dessert!

【內湖, 港墘站】高三孝碳烤吐司專賣__超人氣 #碳烤吐司 及 #菠蘿堡

高三孝 碳烤吐司專賣-台北

Gao San Siao Sandwich – Taipei


來內湖工作也四個月了,附近的餐廳也試吃的差不多了。今天來介紹一下我覺值得推薦的餐廳。

「高三孝」是一家專門賣碳烤土司的店,我午餐很喜歡去那裡買一個三明治,算蠻清爽的午餐,吃完下午不太會昏昏沈沈的:)

I’ve been working at Neihu district for about 4 months now, I have tried just about every restaurant here. Today I am going to introduce a restaurant that I highly recommend.

‘Gao San Siao’ is a restaurant that sells sandwiches. I love to get myself a sandwich there for lunch, it’s not too heavy so I don’t get too much of a food coma during the afternoon 🙂

img_4598-1.JPG

▲一走進高三孝裡面,就看到左邊的黑板滿滿寫著菜單和食材的來源。
Once inside the restaurant, you can see the blackboard that has the menu and also the ingredients and their origin.

他們的菜單其實蠻簡單的,餐點的部份分為兩類 一是烤吐司 一是烤菠蘿堡。而口味主要有豬排、雞排及一些其他的選項。

Their menu is quite simple, the meal is split into 2 categories, one is grilled sandwiches, and one is grilled sandwich with pineapple bun. For either choice, you can add pork chop, chicken, and other options inside your sandwich.

img_4604-1.JPG

班長系列是烤吐司

img_4605-1.JPG

▲高三孝碳烤土司的食材來源都是大有來頭呢!比如說吐司是「金鄉食品全素吐司」,鮮奶是「高大鮮乳」
The restaurant’s ingredients are all quite famous. For example, the bread is ‘Jin Xiang Food Corp Vegetarian Toast’, and the milk is ‘High Milk’.

詳細的食材介紹讓人感覺安心健康!

 The detailed descriptions of the ingredients do make me feel safer and healthier as a consumer

img_4617-1.JPG

這裏是先結帳才送餐。劃好菜單之後就可以到櫃台買單了
Here you have to pay first, mark the menu and you can bring it to the cashier to pay.

有肉的,平均的單價都要60、70以上。而蛋奶素的則是40、45。

飲料的部份,有古早味紅茶、綠茶、咖啡、牧場鮮奶跟鮮奶紅茶。

Anything with meat cost at least 60-70, and veggie option cost around 40-45.

For drinks, there is black tea, green tea, coffee, milk, and milk tea.

img_4603.JPG

餐點皆現點現做,所以等待時間會較久。廚房是開放性的。可以看到廚師在裡面忙碌的製作美味三明治。???

All the mean is made fresh so the wait is quite long. They have an open kitchen so you can see the chefs busy making the delicious sandwiches.

img_4602.JPG

手套放在櫃檯上 可以自取

You can get gloves on the counter

img_4616.JPG

裏面裝潢的好像國高中的教室一樣,坐位都是課桌椅

The restaurant is furnished just like a high-school classroom. The table and chair is the kind you find in a high school.

img_4601.JPG

▲看來食尚玩家有來踩點過

The Taiwan’s food variety show ‘Shi Shang Wan Jia’ came to this restaurant before.

牆邊的塗鴉是西門町萬年百貨

The wall has graffiti of  ‘Xi Men Ding Ten-Thousand Year Department Store’

▲這家店是江南店,店家將店名和歌手psy有名的「江南style」聯想。畫了這個警示語

The store is the Jiangnan store, and since the Chinese name is the same as psys ‘Gangnam’ style, they drew a sign with psy.

▲西西里雞腿排總匯三明治 $90
Sisley Chicken Leg Sandwich

三明治是對切成二份的,每一份裏面都有牙籤記得要先取出哦

裡面的料很豐盛,最底下是一塊又厚又嫩的雞排和嫩煎蛋。另一層是翠綠的生菜跟醋醃小黃瓜。

雞排吃起來很夠味也很嫩,有一點小小辣。還蠻異國風味的。

The sandwich is cut into halves, and each half has a toothpick in it so be careful.

There is quite a lot of ingredients inside the sandwich. The bottom has a thick and tender piece of chicken, there is also a fried egg, lettuce and pickles. The chicken is quite flavorful and tender and a little bit spicy.

▲匈牙利豬排總匯三明治 $80
Hungary Pork Chop Sandwich $80

碳烤三明治的吐司吃起來滿鬆軟的。馬鈴薯沙拉裡的馬鈴薯還有硬硬的口感。蛋厚的就像玉子燒。搭配上清爽的醋醃小黃瓜和生菜超唰嘴!

The grilled sandwich is quite soft, potato salad’s potato has good texture, the egg is thick kind of like Japanese style Tamago, taste quite refreshing with the pickles and lettuce.

▲起司豬排波羅堡  $70
Cheese Pork Chop Sandwich with Pineapple Bun $70

一上桌就有港式飲茶的感覺,波蘿酥酥的表皮帶有甜味又非常鬆軟。配上充滿肉汁的豬排及煎蛋真的非常的搭!

Feels like I am in a dim sum place with this dish. The pineapple bun’s surface is sweet and soft, and compliments the juicy pork chop and fried egg!

▲豬排蛋烤吐司 $60
Pork chop and Egg sandwich $60

跟匈牙利豬排總匯三明治相比少了馬鈴薯沙拉。吃起來很普通。

Unlike Hungary Pork Chop Sandwich, this does not have potato salad in it, this makes me finding the taste  slightly lacking.

▲名片的背後也有完整的Menu。

The back of their business card has the full menu.

▲外帶的烤菠蘿堡用透明盒子裝著

Here is the transparent take-out container.

吃過烤土司和烤菠蘿堡後,很難決定哪個比較好吃,我覺得各有各的特色!

I had the chance to eat both the grilled sandwich and grilled sandwich with pineapple buns. Its hard to pick a clear-winner here. I feel both has its own style of taste.

Burger Ray 個性漢堡-台北


某個禮拜天的下午,

J:”看電影前,要去吃什麼嗎?”

Me:”我想吃Burger Ray的漢堡”

J:”我也是耶!”

這家美式漢堡吸引我的原因是,漢堡內的蔬菜,搭配薯條的起司和肉醬都是自取。重點是不僅牛肉漢堡肉可以選擇熟度,也可以選擇麵包種類!

Sunday afternoon, I had a movie date with my friend.

Friend: “Do you want to eat anything before the movie?”

Me: “I want to eat Burger Ray’s burger”

Friend: “Me Too!!!”

The reason why this american style burger attracts me is that everything is self-served such as lettuce and chesse/chili sauce for the fries. More importantly, you can choose the bread type as well as how you like the burger steak to be done.

捷運忠孝敦化三號出口,走大約五分鐘就到了

▲Burger Ray 個性漢堡的菜單 (Burger Ray’s menu)

招牌漢堡(Signature Burger) 的漢堡肉使用的是美國USDA Choice冷藏牛肉以牛排的標準提供五分熟、七分熟、全熟,三種不同熟度選擇。

麵包則提供口感柔軟的布里歐 Brioch、軟硬適中的雜糧 Multi-Grain、較有嚼勁的巧巴達 Ciabatta。

想要多加配料的話,菜單上也清楚列出各種配料的加購價唷!

大家可以自由搭配出屬於自己的Burger!

*內用的話要先在一進門左邊的櫃台點餐。

Burger Ray’s burger use USDA choice beef and you can ask your beef to be cooked medium-rare, medium, and well done.

As for bread, you can choose between Brioch, Multi-grain, and Ciabatta. If you want extras on your burger, the menu shows them as well as their price.

Everyone can freely create their own personalized burger.

*If you want to dine-in, you have to go to the left to order.

▲一進門的左邊是開放式廚房,大家可以清楚看到漢堡的製作過程。

Once you walk in, you can see the kitchen on your left. You can see how the end-to-end process of the burger making here.

▲因為我選擇套餐,所以店員給我一個空杯子去裝飲料。

Since I choose to make it a meal, I receive an empty cup to fill drinks.

img_4548-1.JPG

▲飲料不僅提供汽水,還有茶可以選擇

跟美國的漢堡店一樣,這裡也可以免費續杯。

Drinks not only include soft drinks, there is also tea. Similar to American burger joints, free refills~

img_4549-1.JPG

▲飲料機旁邊有餐具,可以自取

Utensils near the drinks.

img_4553-1.JPG

▲用不鏽鋼籃子裝食物, 拿取很方便

The food is brought out in stain-less steel made basket, easy to carry it back to your table.

img_4547-1.JPG

▲取餐完畢後可以到旁邊的自助台拿加在漢堡內的生鮮青蔬和醬料,

只能拿取一次,所以記得要一次拿完你需要的配料唷!

After taking your meal, you can go to the bar to take veggies and sauces.

You can only take it once in one trip, so please remember to take all you need.

img_4551-2.JPG

▲提供有美生菜、蘿蔓生菜、生洋菜、酸黃瓜片、碎酸黃瓜、莎莎醬、蕃茄、洋蔥丁等,

There is lettuce, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, pickle relish, salsa, tomatoes, onions, etc…

img_4554-1.JPG

▲甜酸醬Russian Dressing, 照燒醬Teriyaki Sauce,BBQ醬。可以自由加在漢堡內。

They also have Russian Dressing, Teriyaki Sauce, and BBQ sauce for the burgers.

img_4558-2.JPG

▲番茄醬和蜂蜜芥末醬

Ketchup and honey mustard

img_4563-1.JPG

▲自助台的左側還有肉醬、起司醬可以拿,

肉醬和起司醬一直在加熱,還蠻燙的,如果不想用塑膠盒裝可以直接淋在餐點上囉!

On the left of the bar, there is also meat sauce and cheese for the fries.

The meat and cheese is being continuously heated so its quite hot, if you don’t want to use plastic containers, you can directly put on your meal.

img_4556-1.JPG

▲套餐附的薯條,不得不說這薯條也太好吃了吧!炸的外層酥脆裡面綿密,不用沾醬就很好吃了,讓我驚艷!當然配上起司醬更好吃!

Here is fries that came with the meal, I must say I was quite surprised on how tasty the fries are. It’s fried just right, crispy on the outside and still soft on the inside. I found it delicious even without any sauce. Of course it tasted even better with cheese 🙂

img_4555-1.JPG

▲番茄下面黑黑的是我另外加選的松露醬和切達起司

From below the tomatoes, you can find what I added as extras, cheddar cheese and truffle sauce.

img_4559-1.JPG

▲麵包我選了較有嚼勁、口感帶Q的巧巴達

For the bread, I choose Ciabatta for its soft yet chewy texture

img_4561-1-1.JPG

牛肉的熟度我選擇了5分熟,不過感覺比較偏七分熟。

牛肉吃起來口感滿紮實的,不會鬆鬆散散,趁熱咬下還有香氣十足的肉汁!

配上富有嚼勁的巧巴達, 濃郁的起司, 和清爽的生菜, 真的好滿足 🙂

I choose medium-rare for the steak, but it feels more toward medium. The beef tasted firm and does not fall apart. I took a bite while its still hot, and its quite juicy.

Along with the tender ciabatta bread, rich cheese, and refreshing lettuce, it was very satisfying.

平常吃美式餐廳漢堡隨便都200左右或更高,

這邊單點145元就有USDA choice等級的厚實牛肉漢堡以及可隨意加的蔬菜和醬料, 個人覺得還滿划算的,

除了加了鴨肝及松露等頂級食材的心臟病堡要價410元較貴外,

其他都蠻平價的,單點148元起,加50元升級套餐就有薯條及飲料,另外還可加價選配料等

也有提供素食漢堡給吃素的客人。

Burger Ray是非常值得再來一次的漢堡店 🙂

Usually American burger joints starts at 200$ or higher. For Burger Ray, a burger only cost 145$ for a USDA choice level beef and all you can add veggies and sauces. I feel its quite worth the money. (Of course, you can go with the $410 ‘Heart Attack Burger’ which consist of duck liver, truffle, and other high-quality ingredients) Otherwise, most burgers here is quite cheap starting with $148. with extra $50, you can make it a meal with fries and drinks. You can also add other ingredients at a price. Also they have a veggie burger for the veggie-lovers. I look forward to coming to Burger Ray again 🙂
