Red On Tree (Da’an, Taipei) | 在欉紅本鋪(台北大安)

2015-10-06 14.59.51

台北咖啡店「在欉紅本鋪」帶有很地道的歐美風格,你去倫敦或溫哥華遇到它不會感到突出。「在欉紅」專門製作和販賣精緻手工果醬,還提供果醬為主題的下午茶和點心,如自製斯康、優格配果醬。「在欉紅本鋪」最有名的點心就是他們自家果醬基底做的,做成完美花朵造型的手工義式冰淇淋跟雪酪。但不管這家店的包裝有多歐美化,他們還是忠於台灣根源—-他們所有的果醬和點心主要的是用本土食材料做的。

Local cafe Red On Tree wouldn’t be at all out of place in London or Vancouver. They specialize in artisanal jam, which they sell by the jar or serve with yogurt and housemade scones. But they’re most famous for their gourmet house-made gelatos and sorbets, which they make using their jams as a base and serve European-style, expertly paddled into a flower shape. But in spite of their Euro-American packaging, Red On Tree is faithful to its Taiwanese roots, featuring a menu that’s almost exclusively made up of local ingredients.      Continue reading

Jason’s Fruits Store (Songshan, Taipei) | 陳記百果園(台北松山)

2015-09-24 17

我開始寫這個部落格的原因,主要是因為我希望向國內外讀者推廣台灣產品和當地小型企業,所以我找到像雪王蜜朵麗O Rose等等強調台灣食材的店,覺得很開心! 當我發現松山區有一家台灣頂級水果專賣小店,「陳記百果園」,我特別期待去試試看。作為水果專家的「陳記百果園」,當然懂得怎樣把水果最好的一面顯示出來 — 就是把它做成冰淇淋喔!

One of the reasons I started this blog was to promote local products and small businesses to both Taiwanese and foreign audiences. I’m always pleased to find ice cream shops like Snow KingMidori and O Rose that emphasize Taiwanese products. I was especially excited to try Jason’s Fruits Store, a cute little shop in Songshan that specializes in Taiwanese fruits. Like any fruit experts, they know how to show their product in its best light — by making it into delicious, fresh ice cream!

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.
