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. The fact that I’m still thinking about this place months later says something about how good it was!  Continue reading

Yellow Lemon Dessert Bar (Xinyi, Taipei) | 黃檸檬甜點吧(台北信義)

2015-10-27 07.34.36

我不知道怎麼了,我今年春天準備冰淇淋店名單的時候完全錯過了「黃檸檬 」,只有在幾個禮拜前朋友提出一起去品嘗他們得過獎的義式霜淇淋以後才知道它的存在。我們本來要去位於大直捷運站附近的總店,但後來發現了信義區的新光三越就有分店,不用跑那麼遠,所以就去了信義分店了。

Somehow I missed Yellow Lemon when I was compiling my ice cream hit list earlier this year – I only heard of it when a friend suggested we go there to check out their award-winning soft-serve gelato a few weeks ago. We originally planned to go to the main location in Dazhi, but it turns out they have a branch at the Shinkong Mitsukoshi in Xinyi, so we went to that one instead. 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!)

Jung Yard Softee Soft-Serve Ice Cream (Da’an, Taipei) | 小涼院霜淇淋專門店(台北大安)

Jung Yard Soft-serve Taipei | 小涼院霜淇淋專門店台北

小涼院霜淇淋專門店是一家微小的店,專門製造精緻手工霜淇淋。本店能見度很低,沒有讀者特意向我推薦的話,我肯定沒有找到!

Jung Yard Softee is a tiny, low-profile shop specializing in handmade gourmet soft-serve. It’s so obscure that if a reader hadn’t recommended it to me, I’d never have found it!
