I’m enjoying London and grad school a lot, but it’s always nice to be back in Taipei for a little bit. The day after I landed in Taipei, I paid a visit to my favorite coffee shop in Xinyi!
Whether you’re just a tourist or have been living in Taipei for a while, you’d know that Xinyi is one of the most commercial areas of Taipei. Known for its high end shopping and dining experiences, its easy to find the biggest commercial chains, but much harder to find unique and eccentric independent coffee shops that take coffee seriously.
不管你是來台北玩或是已經住在台北一段時間了, 大部分的人都知道信義區是台北最繁華和最商業化的地區。以高端的購物和用餐體驗聞名, 要在信義區找到來自各地的連鎖店是一件很簡單的事情。但是如果要找到認真對待咖啡的獨立咖啡廳, 那確實需要花點時間。The moment you enter the the shop, you’ll notice countless empty coffee bags from roasters all around the world — Intelligentsia from Chicago, Coffee Collective from Denmark, The Barn from Berlin, and many more of my favorite roasters. Not only does Vojago take their coffee seriously, the owner is definitely a coffee connoisseur him/herself.
你走進店裡的那一刻就會看到牆上掛了很多來自世界各地烘豆坊的袋子 — 芝加哥的Intelligentsia, 丹麥的 Coffee Collective, 柏林的 The Barn, 等等, 我很喜歡的咖啡廳。味旅不只專心提供每一位客人好喝的咖啡, 自己的老闆更是不折不扣的咖啡愛好者。Not only is it a nice space to work in and to spend some time with friends, Voyage knows its coffee well. The milk always balances really well with the espresso, where neither overpowers the other. For those who don’t love coffee, they have a good assortment of teas and cocoa as well!
味旅不只是環境好的一家咖啡廳, 他們家是真懂咖啡。每一杯拿鐵的比例都抓的剛剛好, 牛奶跟濃縮不只不會搶戲, 還融合的剛剛好, 對於喜歡拿鐵的人真是件可遇不可求的事情。如果你真的不喜歡喝咖啡的話, 味旅也有很厲害的熱巧克力跟各種好喝的茶!
I’ll leave you to try it out! Finally, here are some amazing desserts — if you have an incurable sweet tooth like me, I highly recommend the matcha chiffon and the lemon cheesecake!
結尾就附上兩個非常厲害的甜點吧! 跟我一樣無可救藥的愛甜點的人一定一定要點他們超級無敵鬆軟的抹茶戚風蛋糕跟甜而不膩的檸檬凍乳酪! 相信你們會喜歡的!
