Fruit Republic (Xinzhuang, New Taipei City) | 水果共和國 (新北市新莊區)

2016-01-01 15.56.19

既然我已經走訪了台北市多半獨立營業手工冰淇淋店,我不得不把我的冰淇淋雷達延伸到較遠的地方,發現更多尚未寫過的店! 幸好,新北市的冰淇淋店好像不少,而且日益增加。位於新莊區去年七月開幕的水果共和國,就是新北市最新開的店之一。

Now that I’ve visited most of the independent ice cream shops in Taipei City, I have to start expanding more into New Taipei City to find new shops to write about! Luckily, there seem to be a lot of them, with more popping up every day. Open since July 2015, Xinzhuang district’s Fruit Republic is one of the newest additions. Continue reading

Indigenous Ice Cream @ Taya Po Po Atayal Restaurant, Wulai |烏來老店泰雅婆婆的原住民冰淇淋 (烏來)

對我來說,台灣最棒的地方之一就是位於新北市的烏來。在這個人口才6000的小鎮,你可以脫離擁擠喧囂的都市環境、呼吸一下清新的空氣、欣賞蒼翠的山景、走走森林步道……

Wulai Township is one of my favourite places in Taiwan. This tiny village of 6,000 is a very special place where you can get away from the city, breathe clean air, enjoy a lush mountain landscape, hike in the woods… Continue reading

Juan Bing Wu Handmade Soft-Serve (Lehua Night Market, Yonghe, Taipei) | 捲冰屋手工霜淇淋 (樂華夜市,台北永和)

2015-07-27 08.45.17

我們所努力尋找的東西通常就在眼皮底下。我為了吃到台灣最美味的手工冰淇淋有穿過過整個城市去松山區,還跑新北市更偏僻的地區(比如石碇),甚至去探索其他城市(墾丁台南),但我所發現過的手工冰淇淋店當中最可愛的、最友善的、又最美味的之一,本來就隱身在我家對面的夜市裡: 捲冰屋手工霜淇淋! (永和區還有另外一家祕密的冰淇淋店: 充滿復古風格的古早味台式叭噗老店和美冰果室!)

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!)

Chen Ji Health Food (Shiding, New Taipei City) | 陳記養生恬點(新北市石碇)

I felt like escaping Taipei’s concrete jungle for a day, so my friend and I took the bus to Shiding to walk around, enjoy the scenery, and enjoy some of the tofu-based delicacies Shiding is famous for – especially the tofu ice cream!

想要離開混凝土叢林的一天,我和朋友搭車去石碇逛逛街看看風景,吃些石碇的著名豆腐料理,特別是他們的特殊豆腐冰淇淋!
