XIANG SE 香色 – 台北
好朋友生日選在 香色 ，讓我有機會來試試看香色。
I got a chance to try out the restaurant ‘Xiang Se’ when my friend decided to host her birthday party there. After getting off the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall subway station, I exit through exit 1 and followed Nanhai rd until Hukou St. When I turn into Hukou St, the atmosphere suddenly became very serene. It is almost like time traveling to the past as I walk inside an area filled with ancient houses.
When we reach the restaurant, we need to ring the doorbell and wait for the waitresses.
Once inside, we girls all exclaimed as the lighting and the mood of the place was just amazing. It is perfect for us to take our ‘natural’ pictures. ???
Inside the bathroom, you can see a huge metal bathtub with candles. It makes one feel walking into a house in the ancient times. (Like I would know :P)
The faucet was also designed specially, you need to twist to open it.
The menu has a metal tray or chopping board as base, it is quite heavy when you hold it up.
Once seated, you can tell they have put a lot of thoughts into their utensils. The napkin’s flower put a smile in my face 🙂
▲四種起司麵包盤 四人份 $490
▲Dance on White cocktail
當看到Dance on White 這個名字的時候，讓我覺好俏皮。詢問過店員的意見後，她也很推薦這款呢～
漸層的配色好優雅, 要喝的時候記得拿旁邊的小湯匙攪拌, 喝起來酸酸甜甜的
With such a appealing atmosphere, how can we need accompnay it with a cocktail? When I saw the word ‘Dance on White’, it felt quite playful to me. When I inquire it with the waitress, she also recommended it to me. The layered color is very graceful, and I need to remember to stir when I want to drink it. It taste sour and sweet at the same time.
Angle hair with mullet roes. The angle hair in this place for some reason taste like vermicelli~
This dish is quite sour and decently appetizing.
The french style Omelette is crispy on the outside. Eating it with fresh salad was rich with cheese and won my heart over.
紅醬是牛肋 蕃茄 舞菇 大蒜洋蔥等食材為底調製成的, 吃起來酸味適中,
用法棍去沾濃郁鹹香的紅醬, 讓人一口接一口停不下來! 就算單吃紅醬也很好吃!
Xiang Se #57 Gnocchi
This dish is the #1 dish of the night for me.
The Facebook of Xiang Se describe the dish as:
Usually Gnocchi is created with potato, but we changed it to handmade with Taiwan Farmer #57 Yam instead
The red sauce is created with rib, tomatoes, maitake mushroom, garlic, onion as base, it tasted with just the right amount of sour to it.
I could not stop myself from eating the baguette dipped with the red sauce. Eating this alone was delicious.
麺裡面有蓮子,筍丁,和干絲! 這些中式料理會出現的食材非常奇妙的出現在意大利麵裡面, 雖然讓人看了很驚訝, 但也意外的融入進這道料理里. 吃起來真的很亞洲風味,感覺像是在吃川菜；酸酸辣辣還有點麻麻的.
Asian style spaghetti with cherry duck
The spaghetti has lotus seed, bambom shoots, and shedded bean curd? It was mind-blowing to see asian ingredients inside a spaghetti dish, but it was even more mind-blowing how fitting the ingredient tasted in a spaghetti dish. It almost feels like eating Szechuan dishes as it is sour, spicy, and numbing.
第一口吃下燉飯, 好朋友驚呼:”好大地!” 我聽完馬上也試吃一口, 濃郁的南瓜味在嘴裡擴散開來, 伴隨著櫛瓜zucchini的清甜, 讓我忍不住一口接一口!
With the first bite of Risotto, my friend exclaimed “Wow, so earthly”, when I hear this, I tried a bite right away. The rich pumpkin taste spread in y mouth along with the sweetness of zucchini. This prompted me bite after bite.
All the corner of the restaurant is filled with great atmosphere as you can see from the picture, something we can take our time to enjoy.
非常推薦這裡和好朋友一起來聚餐, 或者情侶約會也很適合! 雖然價位偏貴, 但是偶爾來享受一下這裡的氣氛, 放鬆一下也不錯 🙂
I highly recommended eating here with friends or even dating with your significant others. Even though its on the expensive side, it is still good to come here occasionally to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of the place.
