日光大道健康廚坊 (Solar Kitchen)
過了6年的在美國求學生涯, 終於有機會再次親自幫媽媽過母親節. 我們家媽媽是個超級健康養生的人. 她本身練瑜伽超過10年了! 都已經50歲的人還只有24%的體脂肪(不小心爆了我媽媽的兩個料). 為了迎合對吃很注重也很養生的她. 我上網做了很多功課, 最後決定來位在民生社區富錦街上的日光大道健康廚坊! 這家店秉持的是–“無人工添加物 有機 本土農業 公平交易等精神 因為吃的健康就是愛自己愛地球”. 這樣的理念很適合我們家媽媽 🙂
After six years of studying abroad in the United States, I finally have the opportunity to once again celebrate Mother’s Day with my mother. My mom puts a heavy emphasis on being healthy. She practiced yoga for over 10 years! She is already in her 50s yet only has a body fat percentage of 24% (Oops, I gave away two info about my mom accidentally). To cater to her passion for eating healthy, I put a lot of time into searching online for the perfect restaurant. I finally decided on the Solar Kitchen that is located on Fujin St of Minsheng Community. This restaurant has vowed to uphold its value of “no artificial additives added, organic, local farms, and fair trade. Eating healthy is loving yourself and loving the earth.” This value suits my mother very well 🙂
The sign is a bit hidden away.
Solar kitchen’s entrance is green and lush.
After entering the restaurant, on your left you can see some merchandises being sold by the restaurant.
▲ 店內 細長走道旁的牆面使用回收木棧板做為牆面素材
The restaurant has a long and narrow hallway that uses recycled wooden pallets as the wall’s material.
The restaurant is spacious and maintain a certain distance between the tables. Therefore, we weren’t afraid of being disturbed by other customers while dining, which makes a comfortable dining environment.
You can see many animal-shaped decorations inside the restaurant, most of which is giraffe decorations.
The restaurant also has many different styles of paintings
Because today is Mother’s Day, so Solar Kitchen launched a special Mother’s Day set menu
Since my mother likes to eat filet mignon due to its leaner meat, we decided on the Fujin set meal for 2
▲每日例湯的濃湯, 喝起來很濃郁, 吃得到培根和馬鈴薯, 搭配麵包乾碎片, 蠻不錯的
Chowder was the soup of the day, and it was very creamy. You can taste the bacon and potatoes. Very decent to go along with bread crumbs.
Onion soup, a bit ordinary
Homemade bread platter has 4 different kinds of bread.
▲日光大道經典沙拉 Solar Kitchen Classic Salad
這盆沙拉里有”蘆筍 蘿蔓 美生菜 甜椒 綠捲葉 花椰菜 芋頭 鳳梨干 雞蛋 香菇 等 超豐富
▲薩拉搭配的醬料有 凱撒/胡麻/義式油醋三選一 . 我們選擇的是胡麻醬
You have 3 dressing to choose from for the salad, there are Ceasar, sesame, Italian oil vinegar. We have chosen to try the sesame dressing.
I’ve taken a liking for the little spoon for the dressing since it has a great sense of design.
Prime filet 48H slow-cooked bone sauce
▲媽媽點5分熟,牛排表面呈灰褐色, 內裡的肉以粉紅色為主,在中心部份仍見血紅色。菲力肉質非常的嫩. 一口咬下軟嫩多汁. 而牛排下面白白的是蘿蔔, 用牛油煎過, 帶有牛排的香氣, 還不錯
My mom ordered the steak done medium-rare. The surface of the steak is brown while the inside is mainly pink with a hint of red in the very central part. The filet was very tender and juicy with every bite. Below the steak, you can find radish which is fried over beef tallow so it has the aroma of the steak. Quite decent!
▲香草豬培根奶油寬扁麺 Vanilla bacon cream wide and flat noodle
日光大道健康廚坊這裡所使用的義大利麵麵條都是師傅每天手工揉製麵糰製成, 因此確保不會有任何添加劑. 吃起來很讓人安心. 帶有芥末微酸口感的奶油寬麵, 再搭配上培根的咸香, 很好吃. 手工麵條的口感很Q彈! 吃得出師傅的用心.
The spaghetti noodles used by Solar Kitchen are made using daily handmade dough, thus ensuring there aren’t any additives added, very reassuring while we eat. The creamy noodle has a tint of mustard’s sourness, very delicious with the salty bacon. The handmade noodle is very chewy and can taste how much thoughts the chefs has put into making this.
▲不得不抱怨一下這裡的上菜方式. 我和媽媽都還在享用麵包和湯, 結果沙拉馬上上來, 這樣就算了. 主餐的餐點也馬上上來! 根本是逼我們加速吃. 超級大扣分!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I must complain a bit on how the food is served here. While my mother and I were still enjoying our bread and soup, the salad came… as if they weren’t rushing us enough, they decided to serve the entree shortly after! We felt so rushed… Big no-no in our book.
Transparent display cabinet full of desserts.
▲不推薦他們的提拉米蘇, 從上面的照片可以看出, 提拉米蘇中間還沒有吸收到咖啡酒, 吃起來很乾.
I don’t recommend their tiramisu. You can tell from the picture that the wine did not reach the center of the tiramisu thus making it dry to eat.
日光大道健康廚坊位在松山區悠靜的富錦街, 以交通來說不是很方便, 離捷運站十幾分鐘, 搭公車也離公車站10分鐘左右, 開車的話, 因為附近是住宅區, 所以也沒有公共停車場, 需要找路邊停車格。店內環境很寬敞整潔.服務有點欠佳, 不知道是不是因為母親節客人多的關係. 餐點的送菜速度讓我們非常不滿意, 沙拉和湯都還沒吃完就上主菜, 吃起來很趕! 餐點的部分我覺得都不錯, 除了甜點的提拉米蘇讓我失望. 特別推薦他們的自製麵包, 經典沙拉, 和自製意大利麵. 可以吃出食材的品質和廚師的用心. 這裡用餐時間限時3個小時, 不提供wifi.
‘Solar kitchen’ is located in the quiet Fujin St of Songshan District, which it makes it hard to get to using public transportation. The closest subway station or bus station are 10 minutes away. If you plan to drive here, you will have to look for street parking since it is a residential area without any public parking lots. The restaurant’s environment is clean and spacious. The service could have been better. Perhaps its because its a busy day due to Mothers Day, but the serving speed was terrible and inconsiderate. They rushed us by serving dishes after dishes before we were finished with the previous one. As for the actual meal, it isn’t bad except for the disappointing tiramisu. I personally recommend their homemade bread, classic salad, and homemade Spaghetti. You can taste the quality of the ingredients and how much work the chefs put into making the dishes. They limit dining to 3 hours here and do not provide wifi.
