Le Petit Baron Gelato (Zhongzheng, Taipei) | 小南蕨手工義式冰淇淋 (台北中正)

2015-06-23 16.42.18

位於台北市牯嶺街的小南蕨,是中正區的少數手工冰淇淋店之一。店面小小的,很容易錯過,我經過無數次才終於注意到它的存在。小南蕨總店在台南,去年開了台北分店,剛好上個禮拜歡慶了一週年! 老闆是特意去義大利學義大利冰淇淋的傳統作法。小南蕨每天所提供的口味最多只有12種,都很精緻,種類分為新鮮水果、濃郁牛奶、酒精口味以及限定特殊口味,店員說全部當中只有巧克力跟香草才是每天固定供應的,其他的口味輪流供應,每天的選擇不一樣。

Located on Guling Street in Taipei City, Le Petit Baron is one of the few handmade ice cream shops in Zhongzheng district. The storefront is tiny – I’ve passed by countless times and only recently noticed it was there. Le Petit Baron’s original location is in Tainan, and they only opened their Taipei location last year – they apparently celebrated their one year anniversary just last week! The owner went to Italy specifically to learn the art of traditional Italian-style gelato. Each day Le Petit Baron has up to 12 different gourmet gelatos to choose from, including refreshing fruit flavours, rich cream-based flavours, liqueur flavours, and limited-edition specialty flavours. According to the staff, the only fixed daily offerings are chocolate and vanilla – the others all vary daily.

Snow King (Zhongzheng, Taipei) | 雪王冰淇淋 (台北中正區)

更新! 我們最愛的雪王冰淇淋重新開店了,現在在原址二樓,已經開始營業了。新面貌,冰淇淋依然獨特美味!

Update! Our beloved Snow King has reopened – the location is the same, but the shop now operates out of the second floor. The look is new but the unique and delicious ice cream remains the same!

snow king ice cream taipei 雪王叭噗冰淇淋台北 成立於1947年的雪王冰淇淋,可能是台灣最有特色的冰淇淋專賣店之一。散發著濃濃懷念氣氛的店面,店內的老舊桌椅和店外的手畫牌子好像從來沒有變過,一直保持40年代的經典風格。我很喜歡雪王的簡單和復古,尤其喜歡他們超好吃的、有超獨特的冰淇淋!

Operating since 1947, the famous Snow King Ice Cream must be one of Taiwan’s most distinctive ice cream shops. The vintage storefront creates a nostalgic atmosphere, with plain metal tables, old wooden stools, and a hand-painted signboard that make you feel like the place hasn’t changed since the 40’s. It feels like a Taiwanese version of the classic American soda shop.
