【 Boka 】是我Instagram上發現的甜點店
Boka is a dessert shop I recently found through Instagram.
(To be honest, most of my recent dessert shop visits were inspired from Instagram posts)
Minsheng District is a bit far from any places I would be in regularly, so I can only pick weekends to come visit. Therefore, I came on a Sunday afternoon.
▲【 Boka 】隱身於民生社區一棟商場大樓內
Boka is hidden inside a shopping mall building of Minsheng Community. The location is a bit secretive so the shop specially prepared a blackboard sign to show you the way.
▲【 Boka 】隱藏在乾燥花叢中,
Boka is hidden inside dry flowers. The shop itself is small with only 10 seats.
Entrance is on the far right.
When you enter, you will see lots of desserts inside the display fridge.
▲【 Boka 】會細心的在甜點旁表示甜點名字, 主要成分和價格
Boka puts desserts’ name, main ingredients, and price next to every dessert.
The desserts here are priced between NT$110 and NT$160.
【 Boka 】不設低消
Boka doesn’t have a minimum spending charge.
If you order the dessert for here, you can get NT$20 discount on beverage.
The tea here all uses B&G German Farm Organic Herbal Tea.
The shop’s environment.
You can see beautiful dry flowers decoration everywhere inside the dessert shop.

▲Earl Grey Mount Fuji NT$110
(England Fortnum & Mason Earl Grey Tea, Japanese Cake Flour, Fresh Milk, Pasture Eggs)
Their chiffon cake is what shows up the most on Instagram.
Named after Mount Fuji, the whipped cream on top really do look like snow.
The chiffon cake itself is soft with a hint of the aroma of the earl grey tea. What surprised me is that this doesn’t get heavy even with the sweet whipped cream. Overall all, it is quite refreshing.
▲百香優格 NT $130
(百香果泥, 優格, 檸檬汁, 奶油乳酪, 英國進口餅乾底, 法國Isigny鮮奶油)
▲Passion Fruit Yogurt NT $130
(Mashed passion fruit, yogurt, lemon juice, cream cheese, British imported biscuit crust, Franch Isigny whipped cream)
I choose this passion fruit yogurt because of the elegant appearance. The taste is just elegant as the outside. The passion fruit taste quickly spreads inside my mouth with each bite. The cream cheese is on the light side and doesn’t feel too burdensome. The crust is crunchy and adds a crisp texture to the dessert.

【 Boka 】是一家位在民生社區被乾燥花包圍的隱秘甜點店
今天品嘗了”伯爵富士山” 和 “百香優格”後
完全被【 Boka 】甜點的輕盈所折服
“伯爵富士山” 的戚風蛋糕本身很軟綿, 帶有淡淡的伯爵茶香氣
Boka is a hidden dessert shop in Minsheng Community surrounded by dry flowers. Even though the physical shop only opened recently, there are already lots of customers here to taste desserts. I was completely impressed by Boka after trying their Earl Grey Mount Fuji and Passion Fruit Yogurt.
“Earl Grey Mount Fuji” is a very moist and soft chiffon cake and has a hint of earl grey’s aroma. What surprised me was it was not heavy even with the sweet whipped cream. Instead, it was a refreshing feeling.
When I taste the Passion Fruit Yogurt, the smell of passion fruit quickly spread in my mouth. The cheesecake is on the light side, so it didn’t feel like a burden after eating it. The crunchy crust adds a crisp texture to the dessert.
