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

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

【Seattle】Slate Coffee Roasters __ #cafe #Seattle #DeconstructedLatte

Slate Coffee Roasters|Seattle

Address: 240 2nd Ave S #103, Seattle, WA 98104
Phone: (206) 445-7808
Hours: Mon-Fri 7am-6pm;
Sat 8am-6pm; Sun 9am-5pm


I came to Slate Coffee Roasters to try their “Deconstructed Latte”; you get 3 wine glasses: 1st glass contains the espresso shots, 2nd glass contains the steamed milk, finally, the 3rd glass is both of them mixed together. (I wish they have used the same glass to serve all 3 ). When they serve it, the barista first explained the origins and flavor profile of the coffee beans and the milk. For the drinks, you should start with the espresso, then move to the milk, and lastly sip the latte which features both ingredients combined. You could really taste the sweetness of the milk in the latte, and I personally fell in love with the milk they used. I asked them which brand they are using, and the friendly barista wrote down the two local dairy brand they are using: Pure Eire and Twin Brook.

【Seattle】Il Corvo __ Weekday Lunch only Italian spot for homemade pastas #Italian #Seattle

Il Corvo|Seattle

Address: 217 James St, Seattle, WA 98104
Phone: (206) 538-0999
Hours: Mon-Fri 11am-3pm

I’ve been hearing about Il Corvo Pasta for quite a while now, so I was excited that I finally got to try it out. When I got there the line was way out of the door. ( I guess this is a good sign that the food is awesome here)

好幾年前就聽說過Il Corvo Pasta, 終於有機會來試吃讓我很期待.  當我到的時候, 排隊的隊伍已經到門外了 (我猜這表示Il Corvo Pasta一定很好吃)


Il Corvo is only open Monday-Friday from 11am-3pm, so you better make time for it during lunch hour. Il Corvo makes things simple and easy since there are threes rotating pasta on the menu to choose from. This is amazing for someone like me who always had a hard time on deciding things 😛

Il Corvo Pasta只有開禮拜一到五的中午十一點到3點, 這裡每天提供的義大利麺口味不一樣. 我來的這天有三種口味可以選擇. 這樣精簡的Menu非常適合我這種有選擇障礙的人 😛


My friend and I shared: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, and House Made Focaccia. They are all amazing!

I love their House Made Focaccia. It’s crispy on the outside while pillowy and chewy on the inside. Dipping it in olive oil made it tasted even better.

For their pasta dishes, there was more pasta compared to the sauce. However, the chief seasoned the sauce perfectly, so it tasted savory, creamy, and flavorful! I enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients in the pasta.

我和我朋友一起分享: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, House Made Focaccia. 全部都很美味!

很推薦他們的佛卡夏,  外皮酥脆, 裡面卻依舊鬆軟,  剝一小塊下來沾橄欖油讓佛卡夏的香氣更為迷人.

他們的義大利麺, 醬料看起來不多. 但廚師調味卻恰到好處, 吃起來很夠味, 也能吃出食材的新鮮.

【Seattle】VIVO 53 __ Carbonara in Cheese wheel #Italian

VIVO 53|Seattle

Address: 504 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004
Phone: 425.274.9165
Hours: Mon-Thurs 11am-10pm
Fri 11am-11pm
Sat 10am-11pm
Sun 10am-10pm
Brunch Sat & Sun 10am-3pm

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.

影片中他們將$8 $100的義大利麺進行比較
作為起司控, 看完之後超想試試看!


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.

雞肉本身偏乾, 我喜歡比較濕潤的口感



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
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


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

【Seattle】Bellden Cafe __#cafe #bellevue #KouignAmann

Bellden Cafe|Bellevue

Address: 10527 Main St, Bellevue, WA 98004
Phone: (425) 698-1597
Hours: 7am to 7pm


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
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
