Boite de bijou (Da’an, Taipei) | 珠寶盒法式點心坊(台北大安)

2015-09-07 14.06.09-1

如果我沒有看到Taipei Trends的文章台北前12名露天陽台餐廳,我大概永遠找不到珠寶盒法式點心坊。這家小珠寶隱藏在安和路夜生活區的小巷裡面,四周都是酒店和居酒屋。珠寶盒主要的是高級法式烘培坊,但除了美味傳統法式麵包、餅乾、鹹派、可頌等等烘培點心以外,還提供現煮咖啡、頂級茶飲及進口葡萄酒; 另外還有自家製作的法式冰淇淋與雪貝! 珠寶盒法式點心坊是早午餐和下午茶的熱門店。

If Boite de Bijou hadn’t been featured in a Taipei Trends roundup of Taipei’s best patios, I’d never have found it. This little treasure is well-hidden on a quiet alley in the trendy, nocturnal Anhe area of Da’an, surrounded by wine bars and izakaya. It’s primarily a luxury French bakery, but besides gorgeous traditional French breads, cookies, pastries and quiches, as well as a coffee bar, premium teas, and a well-curated little wine list, they also offer a small selection of house-made French-style ice cream and sorbet. It’s a popular place for brunch and afternoon tea.

There are only a few flavours available at one time. It seems they specialize in sorbet – there are seven sorbets and only one ice cream! That makes this one of the more vegan-friendly options for hand-made ice cream in Taipei!

內用跟外帶價位不一樣,外帶冰淇淋是盒裝的,$100/盒,內用為NT$80/單球,NT$150/雙球。好消息是,珠寶盒法式點心坊比很多類似高級店大方,店員很樂意讓客人先試吃冰淇淋! 我試吃了每一款口味,除了草莓雪貝以外,不知怎的忘記了試吃草莓,很可惜!

You can buy the ice cream  in takeout containers at NT $100/portion. If you order it to stay, it’s NT $80 for a single scoop and $150 for a double scoop. Good news – this very fancy place will gladly allow you to try before you buy! I ended up sampling everything except for the strawberry sorbet, which I somehow forgot about.

2015-09-07 16.13.30-1紫羅蘭莓果雪貝很天然,裡面還有很多果肉跟果皮,增強濃郁的莓果香味,還有紫羅蘭花帶來的微微花香,很好吃! 這是我第一次遇到紫羅蘭花,覺得蠻特別的。

Gilliflower and mixed berry sorbet – very rich, with lots of natural berry pulp and skin in it to boost the complex flavour. It also has a subtly spicy floral taste from the addition of Gilliflowers, which I’d never heard of before. Very special!

The lime vanilla sorbet is quite special – crisp and acidic, but balanced with the creamy sweetness of vanilla.

2015-09-07 16.14.19-1


This is a very typical mango-passionfruit sorbet, super dense and pure with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. The texture is quite smooth, but peppered with the robust, explosive crunch of passionfruit seeds, which I’m coming to think of as nature’s pop rocks.

2015-09-07 16.13.47-1


Their new seasonal special kiwi sorbet was quite complex – tart, sweet, and slightly astringent. Between the taste and the pale color, I’d guess the kiwis they used were slightly underripe. It’s still quite good, but I prefer the taste super-sweet, slightly overripe kiwis.

The Taiwan guava sorbet is an unusual beige colour, apparently because it’s made with a mixture of red and white guavas.

本店賣最好的冰品: 玫瑰荔枝覆盆莓雪貝。

The top seller: rose raspberry lychee sorbet.

2015-09-07 14.37.33-1


One scoop of rose raspberry lychee sorbet with one scoop guava sorbet, “dine-in” price NT $150.

First, the guava sorbet. The flavour is exceptionally natural and and subtle – not too sweet, but with almost no acidity, nothing getting in the way of the guava’s special musky, floral, earthy notes. You can tell that they use only natural guava and no artificial flavourings. The texture is deceptively creamy – you could almost convince someone it’s ice cream and not sorbet.

接下來是招牌玫瑰荔枝覆盆莓雪貝。最前面的味道就是很重的玫瑰味,然後覆盆莓的果味出現在後面,較淡的荔枝的味在幕後伴唱,輕輕的把果味和花味結合起來。它的口感超好,不會硬也不會太軟,沒有黏黏的感覺,可是它融化很快。我吃了第一口被濃烈的玫瑰味嚇到了,覺得有點太重,掩蓋了覆盆莓跟荔枝的味道,但我越吃越感覺到水果味,到了最後一口覺得覆盆莓味才是最重的。很多層次的味道,很特色的美食體驗! 跟我吃過的別店類似口味雪酪(比如8%、馬提亞、貝力岡)比起來,我比較喜歡珠寶盒的。

Next, the signature raspberry rose lychee sorbet. The first taste is all rose; the raspberry jumps in at the end. The lychee is like the backup singer, subtly bridging the gap between fruity and floral. It’s more sweet than sour. The texture is excellent – neither icy nor gooey, although it melts quite quickly. The first bite scared me a bit with its heavy rose flavour, but the more I ate the more I could taste the fruit.  By the end the raspberry tasted stronger to me than the rose did. A very interesting flavour experience! I liked this more than similar sorbets at 8%, Matias and Le Pelican.

為了滿足珠寶盒NT$200低消,我本來想要點一個巧克力可頌(NT$50)配我的雪貝,但我在準備點的時候剛好有人來買最後一個!!! ……好吧,我本來是專門為了吃冰淇淋來的,再來一球冰淇淋當雪貝後的甜點也是很不錯的午餐,不是嗎?

To meet Boite de bijoux’s $200 minimum dine-in purchase requirement, I originally intended to order their beautiful pain au chocolate (NT $50) to go with my sorbet, but someone snatched the last one just before I placed my order! Oh well – I came here for ice cream, so I might as well end my sorbet lunch with ice cream for dessert. That’s a good lunch, right?

一球焦糖鹽冰淇淋,內用,NT$80。吃了兩球雪貝,還是加上一個冰淇淋嘗試一下才對! 珠寶盒的焦糖鹽冰淇淋跟O Rose的特濃焦味奶油焦糖鹽冰淇淋完全不一樣,焦糖味比較淡但鹽味比較重,還加上了不少新鮮香草莢,事實上吃起來比較像「香草鹽冰淇淋」而不像「焦糖鹽冰淇淋」

Salted caramel ice cream, single scoop, “dine-in” price NT $80. After two scoops of sorbet, I figured it was only fair to give the ice cream a try. This is totally different from the bittersweet salted butter caramel at O Rose, which is the darkest, deepest, richest-tasting caramel I’ve ever had. The caramel at Boite de Bijoux is very light but very salty. Flavoured with a fair bit of fresh vanilla bean, this ice cream tastes more like salted vanilla than salted caramel, really.

口感偏軟,一上桌就馬上開始融化,我雖然吃了很快但結果還是最後幾口只好喝掉! 因為焦糖鹽冰淇淋平常又甜又膩,所以我很少吃,但這個冰淇淋比我想像的好吃很多,它甜是甜的,但鹽巴足以平衡糖分,而且不太油膩,鮮奶香比奶油香重,結果它吃起來蠻清爽的。

The texture is very soft. I had to eat it quickly, but I still ended up drinking the last few bites!  I rarely order salted caramel ice cream because it’s often too sweet and cloying, but I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. It is definitely on the sweet side, but it has plenty of salt to balance the sweetness, and it’s not super fatty. It’s more milky than creamy or buttery – surprisingly refreshing for such an intense little ice cream.

The shop is surprisingly large, with multiple small seating areas. They offer a wide variety of French-style confections, including local fruit jams…

2015-09-07 16.10.58-1


…fresh gourmet chocolates and bonbons…

2015-09-07 16.11.16-1


…homemade marshmallows…

2015-09-07 16.16.16-1


…and absolutely gorgeous little pastries, which seem to be the star of the show. 2015-09-07 16.16.55-1  總之,雖然珠寶盒法式點心坊明明不是冰淇淋專賣店,好吃的東西實在太多,但他們的美味雪貝跟冰淇淋還是不可錯過的!

Overall, even though Boite de Bijou is obviously a bakery and not an ice cream shop, and there’s a huge selection of temptations to choose from, their lovely sorbets and ice creams are not to be missed!

  1. Oh I didn’t realise your whole blog is about ice cream. Wow, that is awesome:)

    I will need to buy some stretchy pants hehe if I want to start trying these all out!

    Funnily enough I was just saying the other day to my friend I didn’t think there were too many ice cream places here. Guess I was wrong!

    Looking forward to reading all your posts!:)


    1. Hah, yeah, there are so many bloggers in Taiwan, I needed to find some kind of niche! There’s a lot of ice cream in Taiwan, but most of it is commercially produced – the independent shops are fairly rare, but they’re so unique that it’s really worth seeking them out. Why don’t we get our stretchy pants on and go for an ice cream sometime? It’d be nice to talk to a fellow Taiwan blogger!


      1. Yes! I was thinking it’d be nice to organise something- like a big blogger hangout to meet everyone. It could either be really fun or super awkward. At least everyone can write a blog another it either way haha:)

        It’s certainly a good niche! I think mine is “crazy girl just saying whatever is on her mind” 😉

        Oh that’d be so nice! I’d love to!
