The London Plane is an absolutely beautiful and chic restaurant. The second I walked in, I quickly fell in love with the atmosphere and the interior design. There are an array of flowers, baked goods, open kitchen, high ceiling, and lots of natural lights!

The London Plane 是一家非常適合拍照打卡的網美店,
當我一踏進店裡, 馬上被整個氛圍吸引
一整排的新鮮花束, 剛出爐的麵包,
開放式廚房, 挑高的空間, 以及充足的自然光

IMG_1512.JPG▲ naturally leavened toast $14
with ricotta, confit figs, summer squash & pine nuts

IMG_1495.JPG▲ Tuna melt tartine $16
albacore, provolone, picked peppers, celery & aioli

Food was good but way too overpriced for what I get. I have to admit that each dish was beautifully plated. They were both very flavorful, clean and simple.

食物方面表現都不錯, 只是份量不多,價位偏高
食物的擺盤呈現深得我心
兩份餐點的調味都很到位
吃起來很新鮮清爽

République is a hip and trendy restaurant with excellent lighting. This building used to be Charlie Chaplin’s old office in the late 1920s. When I dine in there, I feel like I am in a different country with European vibes all over. Loved it!

République是一家非常時尚的餐廳并充滿了自然光
這棟建築在1920年代曾是喜劇大師卓別林的辦公室
在裡面用餐, 讓我有種仿佛置身於歐洲的氛圍

Kimchi Fried Rice $16

beef short ribs, soft farm eggs, sesame seed, scallions

Flavorful kimchi fried rice with perfectly poached egg. It tasted delicious and definitely has a different kind of taste compare to a typical kimchi fried rice

我滿驚訝這裡有泡菜炒飯
這裡的泡菜炒飯上有兩顆水波蛋
吃之前先攪拌均勻,

吃起來和一般韓國餐廳的泡菜炒飯不一樣
口感比較濕滑, 但調味很到位

IMG_0648.JPG

Smoked Salmon Tartine $15

avocado, pickled Persian cucumbers, onions, capers, dill, lemon

This Smoked Salmon Tartine is well presented.  It was refreshing with all the veggies on top and the avocado spread holds everything together.  The smoked salmon was very thick, fresh and high quality.

Tartine是指在切片的歐式麺包或法棍上擺上配料
這裡的煙燻鮭魚Tartine擺設很美,

吃起來口感清爽
Tartine
最下面涂上酪梨泥

Brioche French Toast $12

Vermont maple syrup

The most fluffy French toast I have ever had!!! As soon as I put a little piece of french toast into my mouth it just melted right away, so yummy!!

這是我吃過最鬆軟的法式吐司了!

切一小塊法式吐司放入口中,
馬上就在嘴裡融化,
口感輕柔, 超級美味!!

Definitely worth splurging here!

這裡絕對值得一試!

【LA】Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches__#Irvine

IMG_0660.JPG

While I have always enjoyed the combination of chicken and waffle. The chicken and waffle at Bruxie brought it to another level. Their original fried chicken waffle sandwich is on the lighter side. The waffle is crispy, and the chicken is tender and juicy with the right amount of syrup added to it. The cabbage slaw is fresh and refreshing. It’s just so delicious! Do not forget to add fries+drink to your sandwich! Their strawberry lemonade was refreshing and a good compliment to the sandwich.

炸雞+鬆餅一直是我很喜歡的組合
Bruxie的炸雞鬆餅三明治讓我驚艷
它們的版本比較清爽
焦香酥脆的鬆餅, 多汁的炸雞,
再搭配上剛好的糖漿和新鮮高麗菜
超級美味!
記得升級為套餐, 就有方格薯條+飲料
推薦他們的草莓檸檬汁
非常的清爽, 很適合搭配三明治

Matt’s in the Market is a hidden gem located in the Pike Place Market. It is a place where you can find a gorgeous view of the Pike Place Market sign! I love to bring my friends from out of town here when they visit Seattle, and then I can start a tour of Pike Place after.

Matt’s in the Market隱藏在派克市場的餐廳,
從餐廳內可以眺望到派克市場的招牌
當有朋友來西雅圖旅行,
我喜歡帶他們來這家餐廳
吃飽后從派克市場開始西雅圖之旅

▲Fishwich $19
Iceberg lettuce, mama lil’s pepper aioli, bacon shaved sweet onion on brioche. The Fishwich was yummy and not heavy at all! The toasted brioche bun was crispy outside and soft inside
魚漢堡的麵包是烤過得布里歐,
吃起來外酥內軟
雖然裡面加了很厚的培根
但整體起來并不覺得油膩

Amazon.com opened their first brick and mortar bookstore (Amazon Books) in Seattle, and I have been wanting to visit since I arrived in Seattle. Amazon Books is located in University Village.
Different from your regular book store, each book here has a reader’s review below it. Of course, all these customer reviews are actual reviews on Amazon.com.

這家餐廳叫做【 Saint Helens Cafe 】
【 Saint Helens Cafe 】位在University Village的東邊

After visiting Amazon Books, I came to the most “instagramable” restaurant in Seattle, and it is called “Saint Helens Cafe”. It’s in Montlake just east of University Village.

▲Salmon Tartine $15

烤過得麵包上鋪上法式酸奶油, 燻鮭魚, 酸洋蔥, 和菊苣
(抱歉我真的不太會將英文食材翻譯成中文)
吃起來很清新, 但稍顯過酸

Baked bread layered with creme fraiche, salmon lox, pickled shallots, and frisee on top. It was refreshing, but a bit too sour for me.

▲Saint Helens Burger $18

他們的的漢堡很多汁, 烤過得漢堡皮微焦微酥, 好好吃!

The burger was amazing, the Gebbers Farm grass fed ground beef patty was juicy, and the burger bun was a bit crispy, just the perfect combination.

說實話應該不少人跟我一樣,
因為康熙來了而想來試試看【 M One Cafe 】
就這樣被洗腦約了好友一起來試試看

To be honest, there must be quite a few people like me who wants to try “M One Cafe” due to the TV show “Kang Xi Lai Le”.
Because of this, I invited my good friends to come try it out with me.

▲【 M One Cafe 】的外觀很不像早午餐店
超級低調的黑色大門加上金屬的線條
走過不仔細看會以為是lounge bar

▲ M One Cafe doesn’t look like a brunch place from the outside.
It has a super low-profile black door with metal bars.
If you don’t look close enough, you would think it is a lounge bar instead.

黑松露的芳香配上大鮮菇,

▲ Black truffle and wild mushrooms spaghetti with cream sauce was very deliciously smelling.
The black truffle’s delicious aroma with large fresh mushroom made this dish creamy smooth with an attractive taste.

▲培根酪梨起司蛋捲 NT$340

▲Bacon cheese & Avocado Omelette NT$340

FullSizeRender

▲酪梨一向是我的早午餐首選
但這裡的酪梨份量好少, 讓我吃不出其清爽的油脂
蛋捲本身表現算是還可以

這裡的法式吐司口感偏乾,
我個人喜歡浸泡蛋奶久一點
口感較為濕潤的法式吐司

▲Avocado has always been my top choice when it comes to brunch.
However, they were really stingy with their avocado in this dish such that I could not taste the refreshing avocado at all.
The omelet itself was ok.

The French toast here is on the dry side.
I personally enjoy French toast that is moister due to being soaked in egg mixture for a longer period.

 

心得

因為被康熙來了洗腦而想來試試看【 M One Cafe 】
我點了很多人推薦的: 培根酪梨起司蛋捲
但用餐後的心得頗為失望
這裡的酪梨份量好少, 讓我吃不出其清爽的油脂
蛋捲本身表現算是還可以
隨餐的法式吐司口感偏乾,
我個人喜歡浸泡蛋奶久一點
口感較為濕潤的法式吐司

Verdict

Due to “Kang Xi Lai Le”, I wanted to give M One Cafe a try.
I ordered Bacon Cheese & Avocado Omelette that is highly recommended by many.
However, I was quite disappointed by the dining experience this time.
Here they gave so little avocado such that I could not taste its refreshing flavor.
The omelet itself is ok.
The French Toast that came with the dish is a bit dry.
I would have preferred a moister French Toast that was soaked in egg mixture for a longer period of time.

IMG_7752.JPG

▲來【 URBAN SELECT 】最期待的就是雲朵QQ蛋
它的外形蓬鬆看起來真的很像雲朵
吃起來的口感很奇妙, 類似棉花糖
沒有什麼明顯的味道, 就是蛋的原味

▲ Coming to Urban Select, I was looking forward the most to the “Cloudy Egg”
Like its name, it does have a fluffy cloud like appearance.
It has an interesting taste, kind of like cotton candy.
It doesn’t have a distinct flavor as it only has the taste of an egg.

IMG_7753.JPG

▲”皇后的早餐”內容豐富,除了我期待的雲朵QQ蛋之外
還有照燒豬肉片, 生菜沙拉, 優格, 起司烤餅, 和法式吐司

起司烤餅其實就是Cheese Quesadilla,
在墨西哥餅皮中間加入起司後烘烤
起司烤餅外皮脆脆的, 咬起來很有嚼勁

“皇后的早餐”中我最喜歡自家製法國吐司
吸了滿滿蛋汁的法國吐司吃起來綿軟濕潤
中間卻仍保有一些彈性與口感
喜歡一口咬下的濃濃奶香味

▲ There was a good variety of food in the “Queen’s Breakfast”. Beside the “Cloudy Egg” that I was looking forward to,
It also has pork slices, lettuce salad, yogurt, cheese quesadilla, and French toast

Cheese Quesadilla is baked cheese filled Mexican tortilla. The tortilla is crispy and chewy on the outside.

In the “Queen’s Breakfast”, I enjoyed the house-made French Toast the most.
The French Toast is soaked with egg and was moist and soft.
On the inside of the French Toast though, it still retained some chewiness texture.
I love the flavorful and delicious milk flavor with each bite.

Verdict

I was attracted here first by “Cloudy Egg”
Here is both a restaurant and a store.
Besides providing meals, they also sell innovative goods and groceries.
The meals are on the expensive side, and there is a minimum requirement of one drink per person.
The “Cloudy Egg” came as part of the “Queen’s breakfast”.
Like its name, it has a fluffy cloud like appearance.
It has an interesting taste, kind of like cotton candy.
It doesn’t have a distinct flavor as it only has the taste of an egg.

▲👈 黑松露油蜂蜜脆薯  👉 雲林紅心炸地瓜.
這兩道配菜推薦搭配的蘸醬不一樣
脆薯搭配蒜味美乃滋, 地瓜則是辣美奶滋

脆薯單吃帶有淡淡的甜鹹味
薯條本身炸的很酥脆但又不會太油膩

炸地瓜的表現很棒
外皮酥脆卻保有地瓜的鬆軟綿密感
特別是搭配了辣美乃滋讓炸地瓜多了另一層滋味

▲👈  Black truffle oil honey fries  👉 Yunlin fried red yam
These 2 side dishes have a different recommended dipping sauce.
The french fries go with garlic mayo and the yam with spicy mayo.

The french fries without the sauce has a hint of sweet and salty taste.
The fries is crispy but not too heavy.

The fried yam is delicious.
The skin is crispy but the inside retained the yam’s soft and silky smooth texture.
Dipping it with the spicy mayo adds another layer of taste to the already flavorful yam.

油封鴨腿需要花很多功夫,
將鴨腿和馬鈴薯泥混合, 裹上粉後油炸
再搭配蒜味美乃滋和黑莓果醬
鴨腿洋芋餅外酥內軟綿, 單吃吃久了有些油膩
好在有搭配黑莓果醬, 酸甜的果醬中和油膩感

▲This is the first time seeing confit duck leg as a sandwich flavor at a brunch place.
Making a confit duck leg is quite time-consuming.
You first mix the duck leg with mashed potato, and the covered it with bread crumbs before frying it.
Then it goes along with garlic mayo and blackberry jam.
The confit duck leg potato cake is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. After a while, it does get kind of heavy.
Good thing there is sweet and sour blackberry jam to neutralize some of the oiliness.

【 Sugar Pea 】是近期在台北Instagram上很熱門的餐廳
其白色時尚的玻璃屋用餐環境很夢幻浪漫
【 Sugar Pea 】的主廚是韓國人, 店內也有外國服務生
所以訂位的時候, 我是留下英文名
這裡的外國客人很多, 用餐的時候常會聽到旁邊客人用英文在聊天
加上環境很歐美, 讓我真的有置身國外的感覺

Recently, “Sugar Pea” has been a popular Taipei restaurant on Instagram.
It’s white and modern glass house and dining environment is dreamy and romantic.
The main chef of Sugar Pea is Korean. The restaurant also hires foreign workers as well.
Therefore, when I made a reservation, I left my English name.
There are loads of foreign customers here. I hear lots of English conversations around me.
Along with the European-American environment, I almost felt like I am currently overseas.

我很喜歡藝人李詠嫻, 最近看到她在instagram上打卡【 The Antipodean 】,
點進去看發現這家咖啡廳離公司不遠, 又很可愛有美麗的墻壁(我對美麗的墻壁完全沒有抵抗力).
讓我決定午休的時候來這裡踩點!

新西蘭和澳大利亞被稱為 Antipodes, 而 Antipodean 是形容詞 形容和澳洲、紐西蘭有關的人或事物。所以【 The Antipodean 】的logo才會是一隻白色的袋鼠.

I love the artist Li Yongxian, and she recently checked-in at “The Antipodean” on her Instagram.
When I took a closer look, I realize the cafe is not too far from my workplace, and it has cute and pretty walls  (I cannot resist pretty walls).
Therefore, I decided to check this place out during my lunch break.

The definition of Antipodes from Merriam-Webster is “the parts of the earth diametrically opposite”, and it is also often used to describe the New Zealand and Australia region. Therefore, “The Antipodean”‘s logo is a white kangaroo.

▲店側面的墻壁也太可愛了吧!!! 讓我忍不住瘋狂拍照.
The wall at the side of the store is sooooo cute!!! It made me take pictures after pictures.

IMG_0046

▲店門口的招牌寫著”Everybody should believe in something, I believe I’ll have another coffee”–完全寫出我的心聲, 忙碌的週一工作讓我相信我會需要再一杯咖啡☕️

The sign of the cafe has “Everybody should believe in something, I believe I’ll have another coffee”, this totally speaks to my heart. A busy Monday work make me believe I will need another coffee☕️

▲ 水瓶是用「antipodes氣泡礦泉水」的瓶子
“Antipodes still water” water bottle

  

▲【 The Antipodean 】的第一頁是可愛的彩色咖啡手繪, 每次看到這樣的手繪介紹我就會覺得這家店多了一份用心, 好感度馬上增加! 這樣手繪介紹每種咖啡的不同, 可以幫助對於咖啡不熟悉的客人來選擇.

The first page of the menu is a cute hand-painted drawing. Every time I see this kind of menu, I feel the store has put thoughts into even something simple like the menu, suddenly I feel good about the cafe already. This kind of hand-drawn pictures introduces the different type of coffee and can help customers who are not familiar with coffee in general.

▼ 奉上菜單, 這裡除了咖啡以外, 還有提供很多飲品選擇.
Here is the menu. Besides coffee, there are lots of other drinks to choose from.

▲早午餐只提供到下午兩點半, 帕里尼則是全天供應

Brunch is provided until 2:30pm, panini is provided all-day.

▲另外可以加點的部分 和 甜點
Extra things you can order and desserts

▲我好喜歡店裡的裝潢擺設, 隨處可見的綠意, 讓人覺得很清新自然. 幾乎每張桌子上都有可愛的小花盆當做裝飾 ?
I love the decoration here, you can see greenery everywhere. I feel very refreshed and in nature. Almost every table has a cute flower pot on it as decoration.?

▲蛋糕櫃底下也有綠色草地做點綴
The cake display case also has decorative green grass.

▲ 店內也有販賣咖啡豆
The cafe sells coffee beans as well.

▲ 咖啡首先上桌. 在等待我的”巴西莓碗”時, 外面桌位的客人剛好離開, 所以我們就跟店員說想換去戶外的座位.
Coffee came out first. While waiting for my ‘Acai Bowl”, the customers sitting in the outside seatings left, so we asked the waitress to switch to sitting outside.

▲戶外的座位剛好在店的Logo下方, 藍色的座椅搭配黑色的墻壁, 有種說不出的文青感

The table outside is located directly below the cafe’s logo. The blue furniture and the black wall has a undescrible modern feel to it.

    

▲巴西莓碗 Acai Bowl NT380

店員一端上這碗 巴西莓碗, 就聽到我和同事的驚呼, 也太美了吧!!!!
這應該是我在台北看到最美的巴西莓碗了!
這一碗不僅外表美心也美, 哈哈哈哈, 我指的是很有營養!
裡面除了含有超強的抗氧化成分的巴西莓, 還含有新鮮草莓, 覆盆莓, 藍莓, 葡萄, 香蕉, 格蘭諾拉麥片, 杏仁, 枸杞, 芝麻, 松子, 蜂蜜, 杏仁奶.
雖然價錢不便宜, 一碗要價380, 但這些新鮮食材和超級健康的美味讓我甘心付這個價錢.

When the acai bowl came, you can hear me and my friend’s surprised shout, it was so beautiful!!!
This is the most beautiful acai bowl I have seen in Taipei.
Not only is it beautiful on the outside, it is beautiful on the inside as well. Hahaha. I mean very healthy!
Besides the powerful antioxidants in acai berry, they also have strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, grapes, banana, granola, almond, medlar, sesame seeds, pine nuts, honey, almond milk.
Even though the price wasn’t cheap at 380NT a bowl, the fresh ingredients and super healthy delicious taste made me gladly fork over my money.

▲皮可洛拿鐵 Piccolo Latte NT 110

這杯皮可洛拿鐵比起一般的拿鐵少了奶味, 但卻凸顯咖啡味更加濃郁, 喝起來很香醇. 雖然小杯, 但是一樣有美麗的拉花.

The Piccolo Latte is less creamy compared to your average latte, but it brings out the taste of the coffee, very flavorful and delicious-smelling. Even though it is a small cup, it still got a beautiful latte art.

心得:

【 The Antipodean 】位在捷運港墘站附近, 從一號出口步行約8分鐘就可到達. [出站後往7-11方向沿內湖路一段直走,至港墘路後左轉後繼續直走,經過兩個紅綠燈後的第一個巷子左轉即可抵達]. 這家店整體裝飾和擺設充滿綠意, 讓人覺得清爽自然很舒服! “巴西莓碗” 讓我驚艷! 這是我在台北見過最美, 也是最好吃的巴西莓碗! 雖然價錢不便宜, 一碗要價380, 但食材新鮮多樣, 而且都很健康. 咖啡表現也很棒. 我點的皮可洛拿鐵比起一般的拿鐵少了奶味, 但卻凸顯咖啡味更加濃郁, 喝起來很香醇. 店員服務非常貼心!! 因為他們先上了咖啡, 過一段時間後才上我的巴西莓碗, 上巴西莓碗的時候, 發現我咖啡都沒喝 (那時候拉花已經消泡了), 就問我是不是要一起拍照, 我點點頭, 店員就說那幫我重新做一杯, 超體貼! 也因為店員的貼心, 我才有了上面那張,美麗巴西莓碗配漂亮拉花的照片!【 The Antipodean 】我一定會來再訪!

Verdict:

“The Antipodean” is located near the Gangqian subway station. It is about a 8 minutes walk from exit 1. (When you exit through exit 1, walk toward 7-11 and walk along Neihu Road. When you reach Gangqian road, take a left and continue walking straight. When you pass 2 traffic lights, take a left at the first alley and you will find the cafe. Overall, the decoration is full of greenery. Made me feel very refreshed and comfortable. The acai bowl was stunning! It was the most beautiful and most delicious one I have had in Taipei. Even though the price isn’t cheap at 380 a bowl, but there is a large variety of fresh fruits, and very healthy. The coffee was great too. The Piccolo coffee had less cream than your average latte, but it brings out the flavor of the coffee and tasted delicious. The service was friendly and attentive here! When they first served the latte, it took them a while before serving the acai bowl. When they served the acai bowl, they noticed I didn’t drink the coffee yet (the latte art has faded). They asked me if I was waiting to take pictures together. When I nodded my head, they went ahead a remade the coffee for me! So nice of them! I was only able to take the pictures with the beautiful acai bowl and latte art above because of their attentive and caring waitress. I will be sure to come visit “The Antipodean” again!
