去中正紀念堂看展覽,想說看之前去享用一下早午餐。就Google附近的早午餐店,看了網路上的照片后決定去【Cafe de Gear】。

I was planning to go to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial hall to check out an art exhibition. I thought that I would find and enjoy some brunch before the exhibition, so I google for brunch places nearby. After seeing pictures on the internet, I’ve decided on “Cafe de Gear”.

Cafe de Gear is located at an intersection so it is quite easy to find. From the moment I rest my eyes upon the cafe, I already liked it due to its refreshing appearance.

▲【Cafe de Gear】是獨棟住宅的咖啡廳,推開老宅的大門,仿佛走過時光的隧道

Cafe de Gear is a cafe in a single residential building. When you push open the old house’s main gate, it is as if traveling back in time.

▲我們來的這天天氣很好,暖暖的陽光透過玻璃窗撒入店內,讓整間老屋多了活力。白色大理石的桌面顯得簡單大方。
It was a nice day on the day we came, the warm sun shined through the windows and fill the cafe. It injected the old house with a positive energy. The white marble tabletop made the cafe to be simple and spacious.

▲喜歡這種純白明亮的環境,簡單優雅。
Love the clean and bright environment, simple and elegant.

拿鐵咖啡 Latte NT150

【Cafe de Gear】的拿鐵咖啡牛奶和Espresso的比例調配的剛好,可以喝到牛奶的香味和咖啡的滑順。我喝拿鐵不喜歡加糖,不過店家有另外提供糖,給喜歡喝甜的客人享用
The Latte of Cafe de Gear has a perfect ratio of espresso and milk. You can taste the milk’s fragrance and the smoothness of the coffee. While I do not have the habit of adding sugar to my Latte, the cafe does provide sugar for those with a sweet tooth.

▲烏龍茶咖啡 Oolong Tea Coffee NT160

看到網路上有人推薦他們的烏龍茶咖啡,就好奇點一杯來試試看。沒想到驚為天人的搭!
東方烏龍的韻 加上西方咖啡的醇, 顛覆傳統的層次, 挑逗熟悉的味蕾。
烏龍茶咖啡口感獨特,一入口先是咖啡的滑順,而後隨之的是烏龍茶的芳香。
在這老宅內享受一杯烏龍茶咖啡,別有韻味。

I saw someone on the internet recommended Cafe de Gear’s oolong tea coffee so I ordered one out of curiosity. I was shocked how fitting the oolong tea was with coffee!
Completely diverting from the traditional taste, the fusion between Eastern Oolong Tea and Western Coffee provides a new shock to your taste buds.
The oolong tea coffee has a unique taste. You first feel the smoothness of the coffee and then followed by the familiar oolong tea’s fragrance.
It is quite an experience to enjoy an oolong tea coffee at an old house.

  

卜派培根鹹派 Popeye Savory Bacon Pie NT 240

【Cafe de Gear】的輕食可搭配義式炒洋菇 /百香優格沙拉/和風沙拉三選一,加點飲料折抵50元。
卜派培根鹹派的塔皮烤的酥脆,裡面有野菇、培根丁、番茄、甜椒、碎菠菜等;
塔皮充滿奶油的香氣,裡面的餡料類似烘蛋的口感,味道香濃。
我選擇的百香優格沙拉很清爽,
百香果酸酸的味道中和了卜派培根鹹派的蛋奶香,
這樣搭配起來吃比較不會膩

At cafe de Gear, you have the choice between Italian grilled mushrooms, passion yogurt salad, Japanese-style salad to go along with brunch dishes. Ordering drinks with a brunch dish will be discounted 50NT.
The popeye savory bacon pie was baked until crispy. You can find mushrooms, bacon bits, tomatoes, sweet red peppers, and spinach inside the pie.
The pie’s crust is full of butter’s fragrance. The filling has a similar texture to texture of a baked egg, very flavorful and creamy.
The passion fruit yogurt salad I have chosen is very refreshing.
The passion fruit’s sourness neutralized some of the pie’s custard’s fragrance.
This combination made the dish not as heavy.

 

  

▲櫻桃鴨佐紅酒醋帕里尼 Red Wine Vinegar Cherry Duck Panini NT 250

這份餐點我們選擇搭配義式炒洋菇,整體調味還蠻清爽的
只是櫻桃鴨佐紅酒醋帕里尼的表現讓我們有點失望,
帕里尼沒有緊緊夾住內陷這點大大降低帕里尼獨特的口感
不過裡面的櫻桃鴨處理的還不錯

For this meal, we went with the Italian grilled mushroom. Overall, the food is quite refreshing.
However, the panini is a bit disappointing. The Panini did not hold the inside very well which kind of reduce the unique texture of a panini.
The cherry duck itself was pretty delicious though.

▲芒果甜塔 Mango Sweet Pie NT 130

每天手作的甜塔口味都不一樣,
今天我們選擇芒果口味,
整個甜塔不會太甜也不會覺得膩
很清爽的甜點
點綴在一旁,用糖霜粉撒出來的長頸鹿很可愛

Their daily hand-made sweet-pie has various different flavors. Today we have chosen mango sweet pie, the sweet pie isn’t too sweet and doesn’t get too heavy.
A refreshing dessert. The giraffe made with powder sugar on the side is very cute.

心得:

喜歡【Cafe de Gear】這間充滿老古董傢飾的迷人咖啡廳,整個環境靜謐典雅。餐點方面,今天的烏龍茶咖啡深得我心,東方烏龍的韻 加上西方咖啡的醇, 顛覆傳統的層次, 挑逗熟悉的味蕾。烏龍茶咖啡口感獨特,一入口先是咖啡的滑順,而後隨之的是烏龍茶的芳香。在這老宅內享受一杯烏龍茶咖啡,別有韻味。卜派培根鹹派表現也可圈可點,塔皮烤的酥脆,裡面有野菇、培根丁、番茄、甜椒、碎菠菜等;塔皮充滿奶油的香氣,裡面的餡料類似烘蛋的口感,味道香濃。【Cafe de Gear又是一間我默默收入到再訪名單的咖啡廳。

Verdict:

I love Cafe de Gear, an attractive cafe that is full of antique decorations . The whole environment is elegant and quiet. As for the food, the oolong tea coffee has won my heart. Deviated from the traditional taste, the fusion between Eastern oolong tea and Western coffee provides a new shock to your taste buds. The oolong tea coffee has a unique taste. You first feel the smoothness of the coffee and then followed by the familiar oolong tea’s fragrance. It is quite an experience to enjoy an oolong tea coffee at an old house.

最近我愛亂點Instagram的新愛好又讓我找到一家新的咖啡廳 ── 【興趣 x simtree】.
Instagram上的美照讓我決定去實際走訪一趟。

上網研究后了解到這家咖啡廳是高雄新的在地烘焙咖啡品牌。
“Logo的大樹就代表著公司像大樹一樣的照顧員工與員工一起成長,透明的量杯代表Simtree做事精準以及對客戶誠實的態度”。
simtree的SIM代表:Self-conscious自我意識, Intention意向,Moral道德。
而simtree的發音和中文的興趣很像近,不知道是不是這個原因取名為興趣。

【興趣 x Simtree 在捷運美麗島站附近的中正路和仁愛路上。

I have found another coffee shop due to my recently acquired hobby of exploring around Instagram, it is a coffee shop named simtree. The beautiful pictures on Instagram made me decide to check out the place myself.

After some researching online, I found that this coffee shop is a new local coffee brand in Kaohsiung.
The large tree logo is representative of how the company, like a large tree, takes care of its employees and grows with the employees. The transparent measuring beaker represents how simtree does everything with precision and have an honest attitude toward its customers.

The SIM in Simtree means : self-conscious, intention and moral.

Simtree sounds similar to “hobby” in Chinese. Perhaps that is why the Chinese name is called “xingqu” (hobby).

Simtree is located near Formosa Boulevard Subway station at the intersection of Zhongzheng rd. and Renai rd.

▲淺灰的建築外觀搭配一顆綠色的樹非常醒目。
The light gray appearance with a large green tree is very eye-catching.

在試營運階段有免費辦會員的活動, 但要求先跟門口的樹拍照FB打卡并設定為公開。
給服務生確認後,就可以排隊辦會員。
(現在可以免費辦會員卡,建議大家可以先辦,畢竟會員價和原價差蠻多的)

During soft-opening, there is a promotion for free membership. However, you will first need to take a picture with the green tree outside and check-in through Facebook with privacy set to public.
Once you have checked-in you can get in line to apply for membership. (Currently, membership is free, I recommend applying for membership first since member pricing is a lot cheaper than non-member pricing)

▼會員的權利如下: Here are the perks of being a simtree member

img_0794

img_0801

▲看到門口的履歷箱,我發現店名【興趣 x simtree】中的sim是不是也可以解釋為:
 Science(科學)  Irrigation(灌溉)  Meal(食物)。

When I saw the resume box, I discovered that the SIM in Simtree perhaps also stand for:
Science, Irrigation, Meal

▲我喜歡整家店的設計風格;簡單大方。
I love the design here, simple and spacious.

以現代工業風為主,搭配裸露的水泥牆柱和懸掛式的燈飾。
很有美式風格。

With a modern industrial design, along with bare cement columns and overhanging lights. It has quite an American style.

▲店員會在這個三輪車造型的車子上進行手沖教學
The employees will show you hands-on pour-over coffee on this tricycle.

▲自助磨豆機 DIY Coffee grinder

▲櫃檯(我覺得他們店員有挑過臉蛋 ??? )

Cashier (I think they take looks into employees hiring consideration ???)

▲Menu

▲手沖咖啡區,
目前有六款豆子可以選擇,
可以打開前面的蓋子聞豆子的味道,
選擇喜歡的豆子後,再拿卡片去櫃檯點

Pour-over coffee area:

Currently, they have 6 kinds of coffee beans to choose from. You can open the container to smell the coffee beans. After you have found what you like you can take a card and bring it to the cashier.

img_0783  img_0784
  

  

   

▲目前提供的麵包和甜點選項還沒有很多。
As of now, there aren’t many bread and desserts selection to choose from.

麵包走比較大size的路線,而甜點方面外形都很精緻。
除此之外還提供一些輕食選擇:漢堡、沙拉

Their bread are quite large sizes, and desserts are quite exquisite.
Besides these, you have some light food to choose from such as burgers and salads.

▲店內還有賣咖啡豆和咖啡器具。看起來都好精緻和有質感。
價錢也不便宜就是了~

The store also sells coffee beans and coffee gears. They all looked to be of high quality. However, the price isn’t cheap either.

fullsizerender

▲樓梯上的小驚喜: Small surprise on the stairs:
『All you need is love and more coffee』 你只需要愛跟更多的咖啡~
『Life is too short to drink bad coffee』人生太短~不應該喝不好的咖啡~

▲二樓環境 2nd floor

  

▲這裡不僅有提供wifi 還有提供充電插座, 重點還有USB孔!好適合來這邊喝咖啡用電腦 ?

Not only do they provide Wi-Fi and power outlets, they also have USB ports! Very suited to come here to drink coffee and use computer

▲伯爵奶茶千層 Earl Grey Milk Tea Mille Crepes 會員 (Member) NT 135 原價 (Non-Member) NT 160

【興趣 x simtree】的包裝和餐具也太有質感了吧!
托盤到裝蛋糕的硬紙盒再到叉子,全部都深得我心。
讓我這個木頭餐具控整個心情大悅!
伯爵奶茶千層 超級好吃!一入口就可以品嘗到伯爵茶味在嘴裡劃開。不會太甜,吃完這一個也不覺得膩。

The packaging and utensils of Simtree have such a high-quality feel to it!
From the serving tray to the cake’s box to the fork, they have all have won my heart.
For someone like me with a fetish for wooden utensils and kitchenware, this place really brightens my day.
The Earl Grey Milk Tea Mille Crepes is super delicious! You can taste the earl grey’s aroma spread in my mouth right away. It isn’t too sweet, and I didn’t get tired of it even after eating one.

  

▲閃電酥皮泡芙 會員 (Member) NT 59 原價 (Non-Member) NT 75

這個閃電酥皮泡芙外形類似于可頌, 但裡面卻多了香草口味的內陷。 外皮酥脆還真的蠻像可頌的口感。裡面的內陷不會太甜膩, 整體表現還ok。

  

▲拿鐵 Latte 會員 (Member) NT 65 原價 (Non-member) NT 120

會員價幾乎是原價的一半, 所以真的是辦會員卡比較划算。
拿到咖啡的時候, 我就被杯子的觸感嚇到, 可以感覺出紙杯的材質很厚,
上面凹凸顆粒握起來不會覺得燙。
咖啡杯蓋也很有質感,除了比較光滑和厚實外,也細心地設計封口。
他們的拿鐵喝起來算奶味比較重,很順口好喝。

Member price is almost half of the non-member price, so it is definitely worth getting the free membership. When I got the coffee, I was shocked by the texture and quality of the cup. You can feel the cup’s material is quite thick and insulating. When you hold the cup, it is not hot at all. Besides being shiny and thick, the opening is re-closable. Their latte is a bit heavy on the milk compared to other coffee shops, very smooth and delicious.

 

 

心得:

一開始Instagram上的照片就讓我對【興趣 x simtree】很有好感,而實際走訪後讓我更愛這家店。很多細節都讓我驚喜; 從整家店的風格設計 到 咖啡杯的質感 都超乎我的期待。店內有很多咖啡知識和技能的教學,也有販賣咖啡沖泡的器具,讓客人可以自行挑選,很適合咖啡愛好者。這次品嘗的伯爵奶茶千層超級好吃!一入口就可以品嘗到伯爵茶味在嘴裡劃開。不會太甜,吃完這一個也不覺得膩。而拿鐵表現也很棒!好期待他們的正式營運!

Verdict:
It all started with being intrigued by the simtree pictures on Instagram. Visiting the coffee shop physically made me fell in love with the place even more! I was surprised with many fine details of the coffee shop; from the design style to the coffee cups, they have all exceeded my expectation. Inside the coffee shop, there are lots of coffee knowledge and skill to be learned, and they sell a variety of coffee gears for customers to freely choose. This place is a heaven for any coffee lover. The Earl Grey Milk Tea Mille Crepe was also amazing! I could feel the earl grey’s aroma spread in my mouth, it wasn’t too sweet and I did not get tired of eating it. The latte was great as well. I look forward to their grand opening!

【 Bonheur,  Bonne Heure  】又是一家我被 Instagram 上的美照吸引的店. 最近的我很喜歡亂點Instagram上的照片, 常常點來點去花掉很多時間~~

店名【 Bonheur,  Bonne Heure  】中 Bonheur在法文是幸福的意思, 而 Bonne Heure在法文是美好時光的意思. 官網上說:

“法文的幸福(Bonheur)中加個空白,變成了「美好時光(Bonne Heure)」.

這簡單的文字遊戲(Jeu de mots)恰好標誌著我們秉持的精神:所謂幸福,不必抽象高遠. 而是存在於每一刻美好的(Bonne)時光(Heure)當中。

我們期待,藉由分享,每一刻的美好時光,終將累積成為真正的幸福。或者是,在這過程當中,我們,已經是幸福的。”

很喜歡這段話:   所謂幸福是存在于每一刻美好的時光當中.

I recently love to spend (waste) lots of time on Instagram looking at pretty pictures. ‘Bonheur, Bonne Heure’ is another cafe that I was attracted to due to seeing beautiful pictures on Instagram. The “Bonheur” in “Bonheur, Bonne Heure” means happiness in French, and “Bonne Heure” means a good time in French. From the official website:

“Adding a space in the French word for happiness (Bonheur), change into a good time (Bonne Heure).

The simple play on word (Jeu de mots)  happens to indicate our upheld value: Happiness does not have to be abstract and far away, it exists within every beautiful (Bonne) moment (Heure)

We hope that through sharing, every beautiful moment will accumulate to real happiness, or we already achieved real happiness during the process.

I love this specific sentence: Happiness exists within every beautiful moment.

  

▲【 Bonheur,  Bonne Heure  】藏與中山路一段206巷, 從板橋捷運站步行過來大約也要十五分鐘左右, 就跟著Google Map來尋找吧.

“Bonheur, Bonne Heure” is hidden within Lane 256, Section 1, Zhongshan road. It is about a 15 minutes walk from Banqiao subway station. I used Google Map to find and walk to here.

▲一踏入大門 就可以看到別緻的法式鄉村風格庭院. 店家用優雅的白色座椅為中心, 以綠色的盆栽植物來點綴.

Classy French rural style courtyard. The cafe used an elegant white chair as the center and use the green potted plants to embellish.

  

▲穿過庭院, 就來到店內, 白色為主色調的環境, 很清新

Once you walk through the courtyard, you will reach the actual cafe. The cafe showcases a white based theme and is very refreshing.

  

▲ 櫃檯 Counter

      

▲我來拜訪的這天是禮拜三, 在訂位的時候 店家就有告知我甜點的選項相較於週末會比較少
I visited on a Wednesday. When I made a reservation, the cafe already alerted that there would be less of a selection of desserts compared to selections during the weekend.

  

▲店家將所有茶葉放在瓶罐讓我們先試聞,再決定要哪一個口味. 這點深得我心, 因為常常看名字我無法知道那款茶的香氣是不是我喜歡的
The cafe puts a variety of tea leaves in bottles for us to smell, then we can decide which one we would like to try. I love how considerate they are since it is often hard for me to know if I would like the aroma of the tea by the name alone.

  

▲ 少女峰蒙布朗塔 Jungfrau Mont Blanc Tart NT 220

店員跟我們介紹說, 他們的蒙布朗有別于傳統的, 他們將傳統上佔有相當重比重的蛋白糖霜變成上面薄薄一層. 外形參考閃電泡芙做出長形. 因為外形的改變, 他們建議在店裡品嘗, 如果外帶, 上面那層薄薄的蛋白糖霜很容易裂開來. 這個少女峰蒙布朗塔中間有一層果醬, 增添口感. 栗子奶油的部分吃起來很清爽不會覺得膩.

The waitress told us their Mont Blanc is very different from your traditional Mont Blanc. Traditionally, Mont Blanc has a large amount of meringue. For this Mont Blanc, it is now reduced to a thin layer on top. This Mont Blanc takes a long rectangular shape with reference to Eclair. Due to its shape, the cafe recommended us to dine in instead of taking out. If you do take out, the thin layer of meringue may break off. This Mont Blanc has a layer of jam in the middle to add an extra texture. The chestnut cream part was refreshing and not too greasy.

  

▲綠洲檸檬塔 Oasis Lemon Tart NT 200

我好愛這款檸檬塔!!! 他們在最下層塔皮的部分加入焦糖, 讓整個甜點吃起來有點脆脆的口感. 上層的檸檬餡很綿密, 一入口香味濃郁, 酸酸甜甜的好好吃! 他們以可可脂與白巧克力取代奶油,去除了過重的奶油及刺激的檸檬,帶出溫潤的口感及檸檬的果香, 入口非常濃郁溫和. 超級推薦!

I absolutely fell in love with this lemon tart!!! They added caramel in the bottom crust which adds a crunchy texture to the dessert. The lemon custard is very smooth and flavorful and was sour and sweet, quite delicious! They use cocoa butter and white chocolate instead of butter. This way, it got rid of the heavy butter taste and neutralize some of the sourness of the lemon. This  brings out the nice aroma of the lemon and a moist texture. When I took a bite, it was creamy yet smooth. I highly recommend this!

▲ 阿薩姆紅茶 Assam Black Tea NT 200

店員細心提供鮮奶, 讓我們可以搭配成奶茶

The waitress provided fresh milk so we can make Assam milk tea if we wished.

▲店家招待的瑪德蓮. 有檸檬糖霜瑪德蓮和伯爵茶瑪德蓮, 兩款相比我比較愛檸檬糖霜瑪德蓮, 吃起來比較濕潤.

Lemon frosted madeleine and earl grey madeleine on the house. I personally prefer the lemon frosted madeleine as it was moister.

心得:

【 Bonheur,  Bonne Heure  】是一家讓人覺得幸福溫馨的小店. 在這裡的下午茶真的是一段美好的時光. 雖然位置有些偏僻不是很好找, 但整個用餐環境很舒服. 今天品嘗的兩份甜點我都很喜歡: 少女峰蒙布朗塔 (他們的蒙布朗有別于傳統的, 他們將傳統上佔有相當重比重的蛋白糖霜變成上面薄薄一層. 外形參考閃電泡芙做出長形. 這個少女峰蒙布朗塔中間有一層果醬, 增添口感. 栗子奶油的部分吃起來很清爽不會覺得膩).  綠洲檸檬塔 (他們在最下層塔皮的部分加入焦糖, 讓整個甜點吃起來有點脆脆的口感. 上層的檸檬餡很綿密, 一入口香味濃郁, 酸酸甜甜的好好吃! 他們以可可脂與白巧克力取代奶油,去除了過重的奶油及刺激的檸檬,帶出溫潤的口感及檸檬的果香, 入口非常濃郁溫和). 除了甜點深得我心, 店員服務細心體貼也很加分, 會主動來幫我們的茶類加熱水和詢問我們用餐情況. 推薦大家來這裡享受一段美好的時光!

Verdict:

Bonheur, Bonne Heure is a cafe that makes you feel happy and at home. An afternoon tea session here is indeed a wonderful time. Even though the location of the cafe was a bit hard to find, but the dining environment was very comfortable. I enjoyed both of the desserts I tried today. Jungfrau Mont Blanc Tar (The Mont Blanc is very different from your traditional Mont Blanc. Traditionally, Mont Blanc has a large amount of meringue. For this Mont Blanc, it is now reduced to a thin layer on top. This Mont Blanc takes a long rectangular shape with reference to Eclair. Due to its shape, the cafe recommended us to dine in instead of taking out. If you do take out, the thin layer of meringue may break off. This Mont Blanc has a layer of jam in the middle to add an extra texture.

This way, it got rid of the heavy butter taste and neutralize some of the sourness of the lemon. This  brings out the nice aroma of the lemon and a moist texture. When I took a bite, it was creamy yet smooth.) Besides the dessert, the friendly and attentive service was also a big plus. They came to add hot water to our tea and asked how we were doing from time to time. I recommend everyone to come here to enjoy a good time!

在台灣一系列的連鎖餐廳中, 很少看到有很詳細介紹品牌故事的餐廳. 而【 RÊVE Café 黑浮咖啡 】就是其中一家鉅細靡遺的介紹品牌故事給消費者的餐廳. 從他們的官網可以得知:【 RÊVE Café 黑浮咖啡 】中” RÈVE ” 是法文夢想的意思, 而其發音和英文的 have相似.  這代表著所有黑浮人的咖啡夢–“用食的品味分享及專注生活態度,演繹這名為「夢想」的故事。”

Out of the many chain restaurants in Taiwan, it is rare to see one that goes the extra mile to explain the story behind the brand.  RÊVE Café is one of the chain restaurants that do tell the restaurant’s story to the customers. From their official website,  ‘RÊVE’ is French for ‘dream’ and the pronunciation is similar to “have” in English. This signifies the coffee dream of the people working at  RÊVE Café — “the sharing of the food’s taste and the focus of attitude in life, to interpret the life behind the ‘dream'”

  

▲ 今天我來踩點的是高雄高美店.

Today I came to the Kaohsiung Art Museum branch

    

▲ 高雄高美店採樓中樓挑高工業風設計. 一進門就讓人覺得空間很寬敞舒適

The Kaohsiung Art Museum branch has a floor within floor industrial design. When you enter the premise, you will feel the room is spacious and comfortable.

▲ 我很喜歡這面墻, 簡單的地圖訴說著店家對咖啡的夢想和熱情

I love this wall. This simple map is expressing the restaurant’s dream and passion for coffee.

▲  這裡提供插座和wifi, 也很適合一個人前來享受屬於自己的時間

Here they provide wifi and outlets. It is quite suitable for coming alone to enjoy some time in solitude.

  

▲二樓的空間   Space on the 2nd floor

【 RÊVE Café 黑浮咖啡 】的菜單點這裡參考官網哦. 他們的餐點選項很多, 有手沖咖啡、義式咖啡、新鮮果汁、草本花茶、茶、可可、手作甜點 、早午餐、木碗沙拉、義大利麵、義式燉飯、西班牙烤飯等.

▲嫩烤松阪豬胡麻沙拉  Matsusaka Pork Salad w/ Sesame Dressing

這個木盆沙拉分量很足夠, 建議2~3個人一起分食. 他們的松阪豬很嫩, 醃過后烤很有味道. 沙拉的部分都很新鮮, 搭配胡麻醬汁好好吃! 我喜歡他們的沙拉~~

This wooden bowl salad has a large portion. I would recommend 2-3 people to share. Their Matsuzaka pork is very tender. The pork is very flavorful after marinating and then grilled. The salad itself is fresh and amazing with the sesame dressing! I enjoyed the salad very much.

▲左: 荔枝蘋果冰醋 Litchi Apple Vinegar
右: 葡萄荔枝冰醋 Grape Litchi Vinegar

為了套餐點的飲品, 蠻普通的

Here are the drinks from the set meal. It is average tasting.

  

▲加勒比鮮魚義大利麵  Spaghetti w/ Dory Fish & Coconut Milk

看起來不怎麼起眼的加勒比鮮魚義大利麵, 卻意外地很好吃! 酸酸辣辣的醬汁超級開胃, 讓人一口接一口停不下來. 因為酸辣的口感, 吃起來類似泰國菜. 蠻清爽不油膩, 適合炎熱的夏天.

The dory fish spaghetti isn’t very attracting visually, but it was surprisingly delicious! The sour and spicy sauces are very appetizing, and I could not stop myself from taking bites after bites. Because of the sour and spicy taste, it tasted almost like a Thai dish, very refreshing and not greasy, suited for a hot summer day.

  

▲法式焦糖核果鬆餅  Caramel Walnuts Mochi Waffle

飯後甜點: 法式焦糖核果鬆餅. 超級好吃!! 讓我們很驚艷的是外酥內軟, 而且現烤出來還熱熱的. QQ的麻糬和冰淇淋很搭.

Dessert: caramel walnuts mochi waffle is very delicious. We were pleasantly surprised that it was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was also made right away so it was still warm. The tender mochi goes very well with the ice cream.

心得:
來高雄玩的朋友, 很推薦大家去【 RÊVE Café 黑浮咖啡 】品嘗他們的餐點和飲品. 推薦他們的嫩烤松阪豬胡麻沙拉 ( 他們的木盆沙拉分量很足夠, 建議2~3個人一起分食. 他們的松阪豬很嫩, 腌過后烤很有味道. 沙拉的部分都很新鮮, 搭配胡麻醬汁好好吃! ),  加勒比鮮魚義大利麵  (看起來不怎麼起眼的加勒比鮮魚義大利麵, 卻意外地很好吃! 酸酸辣辣的醬汁超級開胃, 讓人一口接一口停不下來. 因為酸辣的口感, 吃起來類似泰國菜. 蠻清爽不油膩, 適合炎熱的夏天), 最後千萬不要錯過它的鬆餅,因為他們的鬆餅裡面有加麻糬, 而且現烤出來的鬆餅外酥內軟, 好美味! 這裡不僅餐點很好吃, 環境也很舒服. 下次有機會, 還會想去再訪~

Verdict:

If you have a chance to visit Kaohsiung, I do recommend paying RÊVE Café a visit to try their meal and drinks. I personally recommend their Matsuzaka pork salad with sesame dressing (Their wooden bowl salad has a large portion with is good for 2-3 people to share. The Matsuzaka pork is tender and flavorful after marinating and grilling. The salad part is fresh and amazing with the sesame dressing!). Spaghetti with dory fish & coconut milk (Was not visually appealing, but surprisingly delicious! The sour and spicy sauces are very appetizing and I could not stop myself from taking bites after bites. Because of its sour and spicy taste, it almost tasted like a Thai dish which is quite refreshing and not too greasy. It is very suitable for a hot summer day). Last but not least, do not miss the chance to try out its waffle, because their waffle has mochi on the inside. The freshly made waffle is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, very delicious! Not only is the food here good, the environment is very comfortable as well. If i get a chance, I will definitely visit here again!

▲燒餅夾肉排黑輪蛋菜 (綜合) NT 45
Clay Oven Roll with beef patty, tempura, and egg vegetable (Mix)

▲”口袋燒餅” 第一次聽到這個名字的時候, 我以為是可以放在口袋的燒餅 (size很小) ?   買的時候才發現他們是將燒餅從中間剪開, 變成口袋的形狀, 再塞入滿滿豐盛的配料; 有筍絲, 豆干, 肉排, 荷包蛋, 和黑輪. 這就是口袋燒餅最大的特色. 燒餅口感不是酥脆的,反而是帶一點Q度. 分量十足, 吃完一個就很有飽足感!

When I first heard the term “pocket oven clay roll, I thought it was a small sized oven clay roll that can fit in your pocket ?  . When I bought it, I realize they actually cut the oven clay roll open from the middle to shape it like a pocket. Then they fill it was lots of fillings such as bamboo shoots, bean curd, beef patty, fried egg, tempura. This is a feature of the pocket clay oven rolls. The texture is not crispy, it is actually more on the chewy side. The portion is quite large, I was very full after one.

  

▲左: 蔥大餅 NT 15.  右: 蔥花餅 NT 15
Left: Scallion big pancake. Right: Chopped Scallion pancake

他們的蔥大餅和蔥花餅還蠻好吃~~裡面有滿滿的蔥花, 吃起來Q軟有嚼勁.
Their scallion big pancake and chopped scallion pancake are both decent. Lots of chopped scallion on the inside and quite chewy as well.

朋友從桃園搭火車上來聚餐,為了方便我們選擇位於板橋火車站 2 樓 環球購物中心內的【N.Y. Bagels Cafe 】。

I had a friend from Taoyuan that came to have dinner with me in Banqiao via train. For the sake of convenience, we decided to dine at “N.Y.Bagels Cafe located on the 2nd floor of Global Mall of Banqiao station.

  

▲ 店內環境有些許擁擠
The restaurant’s environment is a bit cramped.

▲ 皇家鮭魚班尼迪克蛋 Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict Set NT 345

我本來是想要想要點“酪梨培根班尼迪克蛋”, 但店員跟我說酪梨切開后發現太生, 所以沒辦法做這道菜,我才換成“皇家鮭魚班尼迪克蛋”。他們的班尼迪克的下面是司康而不是英式馬芬,司康一切就碎,口感上和水波蛋很不搭。旁邊配菜的馬鈴薯讓我很失望。吃起來的口感很奇怪,是有點脆脆的,感覺類似於烤過的蘋果那樣。

At first, I wanted to order Avocado Bacon Eggs Benedict Set, but the waiter told us the avocado weren’t ripe enough yet to make that dish. Therefore, I went with my second choice, smoked salmon eggs benedict set. They put scone instead of English muffin beneath the egg benedict. The scone breaks easily when cut, and the texture doesn’t really go well with the egg on top. The side potatoes are very disappointing as well, the texture was really weird. It was a bit crunchy similar to baked apple.

▲ 閻王鬼麵 Surf & Turf Linguine NT360

這道料理的用料算是相當豐富有牛排和海鮮。 牛排的部分煎的軟嫩, 麵條煮的Q彈。整體表現還不錯

This dish is quite rich with steak and seafood. The steak is quite tender and the linguine quite chewy. Overall, it is a decent dish.

▲ 有機檸檬柳橙果茶 St Clements Organic Infusion NT120

超!級!無!敵!難!喝!

This tasted soooo bad!

心得:

非常讓人失望的【N.Y. Bagels Cafe 】… 我其實注意這家店一段時間了,但一直沒有機會來品嘗。初次來訪覺得很糟。店員服務態度不是很好,臉一直很臭。餐點上菜速度非常慢,而且也不好吃。對我的皇家鮭魚班尼迪克蛋很失望。他們的班尼迪克的下面是司康而不是英式馬芬,司康一切就碎,口感上和水波蛋很不搭。旁邊配菜的馬鈴薯吃起來的口感很奇怪,感覺類似於烤過的蘋果那樣,軟軟的脆脆的。有機檸檬柳橙果茶超級難喝!這是一家進入我黑名單的店.

Verdict:

N.Y.Bagels Cafe was very disappointing… I have been following this restaurant for a while now, but never got a chance to try it out. My first experience here is terrible. The attitude of waiters/waitresses were quite unfriendly. Even though it was not a busy day, the food took forever to come out, and the food wasn’t good either. I was very disappointed at the smoked salmon eggs Benedict set as they use scone instead of English muffin. The scone breaks easily when cut, and the texture doesn’t go well with the egg. The side potatoes tasted weird too, kind of like baked apple, soft and crispy. The St Clements organic infusion tasted horrendous. This restaurant I would unlikely to visit again.

一年前來高雄玩的時候, 我第一次品嘗過【江豪記臭豆腐】的臭豆腐,就被這美味深深吸引。一年後再來高雄玩,我指名要再去一次。這次我來到位在新興區民生二路的分店,它位在中央公園旁。

One year ago when I was visiting Kaohsiung, I had the chance to try for the first time, stinky tofu from “Jiang Hao Ji Stinky Tofu”. I was deeply attracted to this delicacy. One year has passed and I am visiting Kaohsiung again. I named this place as a must-go during this trip. This time, I came to the branch on Xinxing district Minsheng 2nd road near Kaohsiung’s central park.

▲紅色的大招牌很醒目

The large red sign is very prominent.


▲這裡以臭豆腐類為主; 有炸的和清蒸的。除此之外,還有鍋物。最新的菜單資訊大家可以去他們的官網上查詢。

All the food here is mainly based on stinky tofu, steamed or fried. Besides stinky tofu, there are some hotpot. For the latest menu, you can go check out their official website.

▲除了我今天來的民生店, 【江豪記臭豆腐】還有很多其他分店哦~

Besides the Minsheng branch I visited today, there are other branches across southern Taiwan.

img_0401

▲在【江豪記臭豆腐】用餐,要先到一樓櫃檯點餐,然後會有服務人員分配座位

For dining at this “Jiang Hao Ji Stinky Tofu”, you need to order on the first floor and they will assign you seatings on 1st or 2nd floor.

  

▲一樓的座位

Tables at first floor

  

▲天熱很熱, 我們到二樓去吹冷氣用餐

It was a hot day, so we went to the air-conditioned 2nd floor.

▲餐具自取

Self-serve tablewares and utensils.

▲桌子上都貼有店家教的『美味秘笈』:
脆皮臭豆腐:1. 將蒜頭,辣椒醬及泡菜塞進臭豆腐中。2. 再淋上湯汁一起入口享用!
清蒸臭豆腐:1. 先舀起一匙湯,將豆腐沾上些許豆瓣醬。2. 再加上蒜苗, 絞肉一起入口享用!

All the tables have tips on how to eat their stinky tofu

Crispy fried stinky tofu:
1. Put garlic, hot pepper sauce, and kimchi into the stinky tofu.
2. Add some soup on top and enjoy!

Steamed stinky tofu
1. First take a spoonful of soup, and dip the stinky tofu into some bean paste
2. Add some garlic sprouts and ground beef and enjoy!

  

▲小辣清蒸臭豆腐 Steamed stinky tofu (small spiciness) NT 70

一上桌就聞到臭豆腐的味道,蒜苗鋪在臭豆腐上,而臭豆腐下面還有一層絞肉

You can smell the stinky tofu right away. The garlic sprouts are on stinky tofu and there is a layer of ground pork below the stinky tofu.

 

▲我參考店家的『美味秘笈』來吃。
把蒜苗佐絞肉和臭豆腐配上豆瓣醬一塊入口,豐富的口感超級好吃。絞肉中還帶有玉米粒,增添鮮甜的味道。清蒸臭豆腐下面的湯汁也不會死鹹,反而覺清甜香醇。而臭豆腐吸了飽滿的湯汁,讓我每一口都覺得滿足! 超級推薦~

I used the tips from the restaurant to enjoy the stinky tofu

First, I put garlic sprouts and grounded pork on the stinky tofu. Then I had a taste with the bean paste. The rich taste was super delicious. The grounded pork also has corn in it to add a sweetness to the taste. The soup of the steamed stinky tofu isn’t too salty, and actually a bit sweet. The stinky tofu absorbed the soup and is very flavorful. Every bite was quite satisfying. I highly recommended.

▲麻辣鴨血泡麵 Spicy Duck Blood With Instant Noodle  NT 60

這道菜一上桌時,我以為泡麵沒有煮軟,殊不知其實軟硬適中,而且也吸收足夠的湯汁。他們的湯底用中藥材熬煮過,香味濃醇。 鴨血不僅軟嫩同時吸收了滿滿的湯汁,很入味。

At first, I thought the instant noodle isn’t cooked until soft. But it was actually just right and absorbed the right amount of soup. The soup base was slow cooked with Chinese herbal medicine. It was rich and flavorful. Not only is the duck blood tender, it is also very flavorful since it had absorbed the soup.

▲脆皮臭豆腐 (小)Crispy fried stinky tofu (small) NT 50

點完小份後有些後悔, 因為大份一份有六塊臭豆腐,小份一份有四塊臭豆腐,而大小份價差十五塊而已。

I was a bit regretful after ordering a small order of crispy fried stinky tofu since a large order has 6 and small order only has 4. The price difference however was a mere 15NT.

 

▲他們的脆皮臭豆腐中間挖凹,塞上蔥蒜。整個臭豆腐外皮炸得非常酥脆,而中間軟嫩吸足了醬汁。我喜歡在凹陷的地方再塞上泡菜和辣豆瓣醬。一口咬下好滿足。他們的脆皮臭豆腐表現非常有水準,不會覺得油膩,而且搭配的泡菜很脆,吃起來很清爽。

The crispy stinky tofu has a whole in the middle and has garlic and scallion inside. The surface of the stinky tofu was very crispy and crunchy. The inside is still very moist and absorbed just enough sauce. I love to put some kimchi and spicy bean paste inside the hole as well. Every bite was very satisfying. The crispy stinky tofu is very high-class. I didn’t feel it was greasy and the kimchi that came with it is crispy and refreshing.

心得:

【江豪記臭豆腐】的清蒸臭豆腐和脆皮臭豆腐是我來必點的二道菜色。清蒸臭豆腐 (我會把蒜苗佐絞肉和臭豆腐配上豆瓣醬一塊入口,豐富的口感超級好吃。絞肉中還帶有玉米粒,增添鮮甜的味道。清蒸臭豆腐下面的湯汁也不會死鹹,反而覺清甜香醇)。脆皮臭豆腐(他們的脆皮臭豆腐中間挖凹,塞上蔥蒜。我喜歡在凹陷的地方再塞上泡菜和辣豆瓣醬,一口咬下好滿足。整個臭豆腐外皮炸得非常酥脆,而中間軟嫩吸足了醬汁。他們的脆皮臭豆腐表現非常有水準,不會覺得油膩,而且搭配的泡菜很脆,吃起來很清爽)。這裡交通方便,價位也算銅板美食,是個物超所值的美食!推薦給大家!

Verdict:

Jiang Hao Ji Stinky Tofu’s steamed and crispy tofu are both a must-order when I come here. Steamed stinky tofu (I eat with garlic sprouts, grounded pork, and bean paste. The rich and flavorful taste is very delicious. there is corn within the grounded pork to add a hint of sweetness. The soup isn’t too salty as well, it is quite sweet. The crispy stinky-tofu (has a hole inside with scallion and garlic. I love to add kimchi and spicy bean paste in the hole as well. Every bite is very satisfying. The surface is very crispy and crunchy and the inside is moist and absorbed enough sauce. Very delicious, not too oily. The kimchi that came with it is very crispy and refreshing). This place is conveniently located, price is relatively cheap. It is a delicious restaurant where the value way exceed what you pay for. I recommend to everyone!

今天晚上和同為美食愛好者的好友一起去【二條通‧綠島小夜曲】踩點. 好朋友有經營instagram分享食記, 大家快去follow 她 ?

【二條通‧綠島小夜曲】是隱藏在繁忙台北巷弄中的輕食咖啡廳. 位在中山捷運站和台北車站中間. 我從台北車站出來, 大約步行10分鐘後到達. 現今位在台北市中山區市民大道二段至南京東路一段之間的十條巷弄,在日據時代是日本人所居住的高級住宅區,儘管隨著時代及政權的更迭,原來住在這裡的日本人已經離開, 但這十條巷弄至今依然保有濃濃的日本風味. 有許多日式風格的餐廳, 咖啡廳, 酒家開設在此.

Tonight, I went along with my fellow foodie friend to “The Island”. My friend has an Instagram where she shares her dining experience, please do go follow her  ?

“The Island” is a cafe hidden within the busy alleys of Taipei. It is located between Zhongshan and Taipei Main Station. It took me about 10 minutes to get here by foot from Taipei Main Station. The 10 alleys located between Section 2 Civic Blvd,  Taipei City, Zhongshan District and Section 1 Nanjing East Rd used to be a luxury residential area for Japanese when Japan was in control of Taiwan. Even though the original Japanese occupants had already left due to regime changes, the 10 alleys still retain its Japanese style. There are many Japanese-style restaurants, cafe, and bars here.

  

▲傳統日式的木造房造型

Japanese traditional wooden style house

  

▲門口台階和招牌都有寫著二條通1號

Both the doorsteps and signs have “No. 1  Er Tiao Tong” on them.

  

  

▲一進門的一樓是【二條通‧綠島小夜曲】咖啡廳

When you walk in, the first floor is the Island Cafe.

▲二樓則是為建築事務所, 木梯的旁邊都是滿滿的書籍

The second floor is an architecture firm, there are lots of books near the wooden staircase

   

▲半開放的吧臺, 可以看到店員在忙碌的調配飲品. 吧檯上還有手工司康
Half open-bar, you can see the bartender busy making drinks. There are home-made scorns on the bar as well.

▼菜單

餐點內容有咖啡、沙拉、帕尼尼、開胃菜、飲品跟甜點
Menu have coffee, salad, panini, appetizers, drinks, and desserts

    
   

   

    

   

   

   

   

 

   

▲起司三重奏帕尼尼 3 cheese panini ( Mozzarella cheese / cheddar cheese / cream cheese)  NT 220

這裡提供三種麵包選擇:墨西哥餅皮/鮮奶厚片吐司/義式拖鞋麵包

我們選擇的是義式拖鞋麵包. 熱熱的帕尼尼加上裡面融化的起司非常誘人, 裡面除了起司之外還搭配有生菜,番茄,洋蔥. 整體口感和調味都不錯. 一旁的凱薩沙拉也算有水準而且很新鮮.

Here they provide three kinds of bread: Mexican bread, milk bread, Italian bread

We chose Italian bread. The warm panini and melted cheese look very tempting. Besides cheese, there are also lettuce, tomato, onion. Overall texture and taste are quite delicious. The side Caesar salad is decent and fresh as well.

▲奇異果優格冰沙 Kiwi yogurt smoothie NT 140

這杯奇異果優格冰沙超級綿密, 但也很難吸起來. 建議店家可以把碎冰的部分打的再碎一些, 或是換一根粗一點的吸管. 不過真材實料很好喝!

The kiwi yogurt smoothie is very dense and hard to drink through a straw. I would recommend the cafe to grind the ice even further or use a larger straw. With that said though, this drink is very delicious.

 

▲皇家伯爵熱奶茶 Royal Earl Grey Milk Tea NT 150

店家沒有放糖, 如果想要喝甜的朋友可以直接跟店家要糖. 用兩包伯爵茶包搭配鮮奶, 喝起來很順口. 而且店家使用的茶具和整家店的日式風格相呼應

They didn’t put any sugar in it. If you need, you can ask them for sugar. Two bags of Earl Grey with fresh milk, the tea was very smooth. The tea set they use fits quite well with the Japanese theme.

▲核桃苦甜巧克力布朗尼 Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownie  NT 140

在核桃苦甜巧克力布朗尼上面的是鮮奶油, 布朗尼外層焦脆, 吃起來比較香但會粘牙, 而裡面很濕軟. 核桃的比例沒有很多. 品嘗起來巧克力的香氣很足, 整體來說是不甜不膩的布朗尼~我個人還蠻喜歡的

There is some whipped cream on top of the dark chocolate walnut brownie. The brownie is crispy on the outside and taste delicious, but does stick on your teeth. The inside is very moist. There isn’t lots of walnut inside the brownie. The aroma of chocolate is quite strong. Overall I would say the brownie isn’t too sweet. I personally like it.

【二條通‧綠島小夜曲】是一家蠻有日式風味的咖啡廳, 這裡提供免費無線上網, 每個人低消120元. 可電話預約, 平日不限時, 假日用餐時間限時兩小時, 可攜帶寵物. 餐點和飲品的部分表現還不錯. 今天嘗試了: 起司三重奏帕尼尼  (熱熱的帕尼尼加上裡面融化的起司非常誘人, 裡面除了起司之外還搭配有生菜,番茄,洋蔥. 整體口感和調味都不錯. 一旁的凱薩沙拉也算有水準而且很新鮮).  核桃苦甜巧克力布朗尼 (布朗尼外層焦脆, 吃起來很香但會粘牙, 而裡面很濕軟. 嘗起來巧克力的香氣很足, 整體來說是不甜不膩的布朗尼) . 奇異果優格冰沙和皇家伯爵熱奶茶都算有水準. 店員服務態度很好. 今晚的用餐體驗很愉悅的. 推薦【二條通‧綠島小夜曲】給大家!

Verdict:

“The Island” is a Japanese-style cafe. Here they provide free Wi-Fi and has a minimum charge of 120NT per person. They do take reservations here. There isn’t a dining time limit on weekdays, but they restrict dining to 2 hours on weekends. Pets are allowed here. Food and drinks here are decent. I tried the following today: 3 cheese panini (The warm panini with melted cheese was very tempting. Besides cheese, there is lettuce, tomato, onion. Overall, the texture and flavor are decent. The side caesar salad was pretty good and fresh as well). The Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownie (The brownie is crispy on the outside, taste delicious but does get stuck on your teeth. The inside is moist and full of the aroma of chocolate. Overall its a brownie that isn’t too sweet. The Kiwi yogurt smoothie and Royal Earl Grey Milk Tea are both decent. The service here is very friendly. I am quite happy with the dining experience tonight. I recommend “The Island” to everyone!

在高雄新崛江逛街的時候意外發現這家【 芒果恰恰 Mango ChaCha 】, 九月份的高雄天氣還是很炎熱, 就決定來去吃冰!

When I was walking around Shinkuchan Commercial District in Kaohsiung, I accidently stumbled upon “Mango ChaCha”. Even though it is September, it was still really hot in Kaohsiung. Therefore, I decided to get some shaved ice here!

  

▲好多節目的介紹~~明星光環的加持下, 希望不會失望

Many introductions and recommendations from various food tv shows. With the backing of many celebrities, I hope the shaved ice here won’t disappoint.

▲店內座位其實蠻多的, 而且生意很好

There are quite a few tables inside the store, and it was quite busy.

▲芒果恰恰雪花冰 (金牌情人) Mango ChaCha snow ice (Gold Valentine)   NT 200

以芒果雪花冰鋪底, 搭配愛文芒果丁, 再加上一球法式芒果冰淇淋. 是情人共享的首選! 每一份279大卡. (有標示熱量這點蠻有趣的, 因為台灣的餐廳幾乎不會標示熱量). 這款冰品, 店家說是林書豪吃的芒果冰, hmmm, 但沒說是林書豪推薦的芒果冰. (玩文字遊戲? )  就讓我來品嘗看看.

店家以三種形式呈現芒果: 芒果雪花冰舖底,搭配愛文芒果丁,再加上一球法式芒果冰淇淋。這三種形式放入口中, 化為三種口感交錯出濃濃愛文芒果味好吃! 而且整體不會太甜膩. 我最喜歡上面那球法式芒果冰淇淋, 非常的綿密. 唯一我不喜歡的是棉花糖~ 除了裝飾之外, 我覺得棉花糖對整體冰品的口感沒有幫助.

With a mango snow ice as the base, there are mango bits and finish with a scoop of French mango ice cream. This shaved ice is a top choice to share between couples. Each serving is 279 calories. (It is interesting they label the calories of each dessert since it is hard to find restaurants that do that in Taiwan). This store says this shaved ice is what basketball star Jeremy Lin eats. (But it actually doesn’t say recommended by Jeremy lin ?) Well, now its time for me to give it a try myself.

There is 3 types of mango taste here: mango snow ice as the base, mango bits, and a scoop of French mango ice cream on top. These 3 types of mango combined to create thick layers of delicious mango taste! And overall, it wasn’t too sweet. I really enjoy the French mango ice cream as it was very dense and flavorful. One thing I did not like is the marshmallow. Besides being a decoration, I thought it did not help the snow ice in any way.
