I came to Vivo 53 because I have always wanted to try the carbonara served on cheese wheel, especially after I watched the BuzzFeedVideo which is comparing $8 pasta to $100 pasta. Therefore, I decided to come here during Sunday brunch time.

最近我看了BuzzFeedVideo的影片
影片中他們將$8 $100的義大利麺進行比較
其中$100的義大利麺是在整個起司上面炒義大利麺
作為起司控, 看完之後超想試試看!
所以我決定來Vivo53嘗試

Tuscan Fried Chicken & Waffle. vanilla maple syrup, honey butter, sea salt $17

A fluffy and sweet waffle is topped with a perfectly seasoned crispy fried chicken. The chicken meat was on the dry side, and I wished it could be moister. I like their vanilla maple syrup as it is delicious and goes well with the dish.

鬆軟的鬆餅上面鋪著調味剛好的酥脆炸雞
雞肉本身偏乾, 我喜歡比較濕潤的口感
餐點本身搭配的楓糖漿很好吃

NEW PARMIGIANO CHEESE WHEEL SERVED TABLE SIDE.ALA CARBONARA. spaghetti, guanciale, egg yolk, parmesan brodo, grated parmesan $22

It was fun to watch when the server brought the whole cheese wheel next to the table, place the pasta into the cheese, and then toss the hot pasta until the cheese slowly melts and combines with the pasta. While it was an Interesting experience, the taste was disappointing. it was way too salty for me. Also, for the amount of food, the price is not friendly at all.

這道料理上桌前, 服務生會將一整個起司帶到桌邊
將還是熱的義大利麺加入到起司中間
然後馬上拌炒, 讓義大利麺的熱氣融化起司
因為是第一次看到, 覺得很有趣
但口味讓我失望, 對我而言整體調味過鹹
也讓我覺得不值得這個價錢

Overall, it was an entertaining dining experience at Vivo 53. I would expect the food and the service to be better next time.

整體而言, Vivo53的用餐體驗很有趣
但我期待食物和服務可以再加強

Bellden Cafe is a brand new coffee shop located in Bellevue. With high ceilings, lots of natural lights, and some cute plants decorations, this cafe is definitely a place where you can take amazing Instagram photos. Staffs here were very friendly and attentive. It was such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

For pastries, I tried their Kouign Amann. It was my first time trying this dessert, and I loved it. I adored the caramelized exterior with croissant-liked filling on the inside. It’s sweet, flaky, and very buttery. I guess the only thing I didn’t quite enjoy was my latte,  I would have preferred a stronger tasting latte.

Bellden Cafe 是一家在Bellevue新開的咖啡廳
這裡很適合拍照打卡
挑高的天花板, 充足的自然光, 和隨處可見的可愛植物裝飾
店員都很友好, 讓人覺得很舒適溫馨
我點了Bellden Cafe Kouign Amann法國黃油酥餅
這是我第一次嘗試這款甜點,
我很愛那外層的焦糖口感,
但裡面卻有著可頌層層疊疊的香酥和鬆脆
一口咬下焦糖的甜香混合著奶油的乳香, 是甜蜜的味道
這裡讓我唯一不滿意的是我的拿鐵
我期待咖啡香氣更為濃郁的拿鐵
