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.

CLOSED 已關門 ~ VIVO Spanish Tapas (Da’an, Taipei) | VIVO光癮時尚餐飲 (台北大安)

2015-08-23 13.15.01

在台北吃到美味手工冰淇淋,不見得需要到處尋找藏於巷弄的、巴掌大的冰淇淋專賣小店,其實有許多餐廳另外販賣自製冰淇淋。「VIVO光癮時尚餐飲」就是其中一個。西班牙「tapas」料理概念餐廳的VIVO, 不僅提供精緻又地道的,巴塞隆納來的廚師做的西班牙料理--它還有很豐富的菜單(從早午餐到消夜都有,還有咖啡吧、進口葡萄酒)、設計獨特又想像的空間、寬敞的用餐區和舒適的露天座位等等;但對我來說最重要的是他們的自製手工義式冰淇淋與雪酪

To get great handmade ice cream in Taipei, you don’t necessarily have to go searching for obscure hole-in-the-wall shops that specialize exclusively in ice cream – many restaurants make ice cream as a side business. VIVO Spanish Tapas is one of these. A concept restaurant that offers a complete experience VIVO boasts authentic Spanish cuisine (the head chef is a native of Barcelona); an extensive menu that includes brunch, lunch, dinner and imported wines; artistic modern atmosphere with quirky art-deco design; indoor and outdoor seating; a full coffee bar; and, most importantly, an ice cream bar serving a selection of fresh house-made gelatos and sorbets!

La Maison De Glace (Xinyi, Taipei) | 駱師傅法式冰淇淋之家 (台北信義)

2015-08-18 22.57.30

當我第一次去 「駱師傅法式冰淇淋之家」,Google還沒聽到他們從師大搬到信義的消息,結果我走錯地方,空手回家! 但是受到獲獎冰淇淋師父做的精緻法式冰淇淋的誘惑,讓我不得不再次出門尋找,而這次成功了!

The first time I tried to find La Maison De Glace, I went home hungry – the shop had recently relocated to Xinyi after several years in the Shida night market area, and Google apparently hadn’t got the memo about the new location. But the promise of flavour-rich French-style ice cream made by an award-winning ice cream master compelled me to try again, and this time I found it!

Matias’ Gelato (Songshan, Taipei) | 馬提亞手工義式冰淇淋(台北松山)

2015-07-29 16.16.47

好像松山區開始變成我尋找冰淇淋的新地方。首先是轉轉吉拉朵,現在是馬提亞手工義式冰淇淋,同時,我的「冰淇淋必吃名單」越來越長了。但比較遠離市中心的松山區的美食不像忠孝復興/敦化那麼密集,松山區比較散開一點,要用功一點才找得到喔! 位於復興北路的馬提亞應該是其中最好找的一家。

It seems the Songshan area is turning into my second ice cream hunting ground. First it was Tenten Gelateria, and now Matias’ Gelato; meanwhile, the number of Songshan addresses on my ice cream hit list continues to grow. But Songshan isn’t the all-you-can-eat window shopping and food-gawking buffet that its neighbour Zhongxiao Fuxing/Dunhua is. Things are a little more spread-out here – you have to do a little work to find the goods! Hidden in plain view on Fuxing North Road, Matias is one of the easier shops to find. Continue reading

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.
