Honey Farm (Xinyi, Taipei) | 蜜堂(台北信義)

我第一次去信義區的新光三越A4美食街,我原本的目的是吃「黃檸檬」的奢華手工霜淇淋,居然發現旁邊就有一家賣手工霜淇淋的蜂蜜轉賣店「蜜堂」 — 讓這場冰淇淋之旅一舉兩得!後來開始忙得沒時間寫評論,但我過了這麼久還還在想念「蜜堂」綿密可口的霜淇淋,大概就能證明它有多好吃吧!

When I went to XinYi’s Shinkong Mitsukoshi A4 food court a while back,  it was to get a taste of some fancy soft-serve from Yellow Lemon. I ended up killing two birds with one stone when I stumbled across another shop on the same floor selling handmade soft-serve ice cream: Honey Farm. I went to try their ice cream shortly after, but didn’t get around to writing the review until now.

It’s true – the thing you search hardest for is often right under your nose. My quest for Taiwan’s best handmade ice cream has taken me to crosstown neighbourhoods like Songshan, remote parts of New Taipei City like Shiding, and even other cities (such as Kenting and Tainan). But one of the cutest, friendliest and tastiest handmade ice cream shops I’ve found so far has been hiding in the night market across the street from my house all along: Juan Bing Wu soft-serve ice cream. (Yonghe has another secret ice cream spot, too: the super funky, old-school Taiwanese-style He Mei Ice Treat House!)
