台北圓山大飯店 August 16, 2016

三,四十年前,圓山飯店是臺灣旅館(臺灣人叫旅館’飯店’)的標杆,是一個具有代表性的建築物。我小的時候就覺得它高高在上,遙不可及,根本沒有錢住這種高級的飯店。

後來,臺灣變得富有了,觀光客也多了,許多高級飯店在台北各地如雨後春筍一般的蓋起來。一個比一個漂亮,一個比一個高級。圓山飯店雖然還是高高在上,可是它已經沒有以前金碧輝煌的外表了。

後來圓山飯店經過裝修,慢慢的恢復了以前的光彩。我們最近常常回臺灣可是從來沒有想過去住圓山飯店。這一次,我們異想天開決定試一試。

US government bought by money August 16, 2016

It is simply unconcievable that the US government at the highest level can be bought if you have money. Enough money that is; like billions.


This is corruption American style.

So what else are rich people doing to undermind the world peace? What else are rich people doing to benefit their pockets?

不好吃。實在不好吃。

今天早上我們發騷,在台北圓山飯店叫 Room Service。

非常準時。八點半沒超過一分鐘。不錯,值得稱讚。

叫的東西也沒有出錯:一客美國早餐-two eggs over easy, ham, fruit, pastries,coffee with milk(not cream,) an Omelet with green pepper, onion, mushroom and diced ham. I also ordered a side order of vegetables。

It came to 新臺幣$1,210。Not cheap.

Everything looked good, white tablecloth, silverware and chopsticks, salt and pepper.shskers and cream for coffee, except the.ham, the omelet, coffee, and pastries all tasted awful. I am sorry but there is simply no other way to describe it.

If you stay at the Grand Hotel, by all means enjoy your stay. But, don’t order what I ordered.

台北復興 SOGO Level B2

This is a new concept shop, for Taipei at least, by the world renownded chef Joel Robuchon.

The trendy dessert shop, less than 200 sq feet in size, is small compared to other eateries on the same floor of the SOGO department store at the intersection of 忠孝東路 and 復興南路 in Taipei.

We noticed the new shop right away when we came back to Taipei a couple of months ago and I couldn’t resist the temptation to try the beautiful hand-crafted, bite-size desserts.

We could only manage one piece because we just had a big meal from a restaurant near by. We quickly decided on the one we both liked, the Tarta au Citron, and asked the young girl to pack it up for us.

She carefully picked one from the case, put it in a paper box completed with a small piece of dry ice and told us not to leave it out for more than 20 minutes.

We quickly went back to our hotel which was about 10 minutes away, unpacked the box and started enjoy the dessert right away over a cup of coffee.


The rich citrus-flavored glaze looked so elegant and luscious that we almost didn’t want to eat it. Well, we couldn’t just let this $5 piece of art goes to waste either. 

In the end, the dessert tasted just as wonderful as it looked. We sure will try the others, Rubis looked especially good, once we feel less guilty about eating something we shouldn’t eat for fear of 三高。

21工坊手工涼麪 July 31, 2016

昨晚在圓山飯店吃自助餐吃到飽,把個肚子吃的撐死了。今早本來要叫 room service 過個乾癮,想想還是不要的好。在房裏把剩下來的水果和蛋糕吃了,喝了不要錢(甜的要死)的咖啡,解決了一頓飯。沒花錢也沒多少卡路里。中午可以出去吃個清淡的中飯,跟昨天晚上吃的稍微平均一下。

圓山飯店每二十分鍾有 shuttle bus 送旅館的客人去圓山捷運站。我們坐十二點的 shuttle bus去捷運站。同行的一共二,三十個人,把個不大的巴士擠的滿滿的。大概五分鐘後,就到了。

下了巴士往捷運站走,沒幾步路就看到這家麪店。門口有幾個人往裏面張望。我們被他的名字吸引住了:21工坊天然手工冷麵。21工坊我不知道什麽意思,不過天然我懂,手工我知道,冷麵夏天吃正正好。


冷麵味道可以,花生味道的。有點酸。梅子泡菜我不喜歡可是又說不上來為什麼。可能是酸過頭了,有點嗆。味增湯裏面有豆腐,包心菜和幾片蘿蔔。香腸倒是不錯:一點都不油,味道清淡,肉也沒有筋,沒有碎骨頭。最重要的是它完全沒有夜市香腸那種一面吃,一面滴油的情景。

及格了。下次太熱時可以再來。

前年五月此店中

塗鴉刨冰一般红

塗鴉不知何處去

刨冰依舊笑冬風

前幾天來西門町看熱鬧,走著走著就到這家冰果店。本打算進去吃一碗芒果冰,看看我們以前留下來的名字是不是還在牆上。沒想到接連兩個旅行團來到這裏,一下子就是三四十個人,把整個冰店擠的水洩不通。我們等了二十分鍾,等這些觀光客走了才進去。

沒想到,牆上的名字全都不見了。老闆把樓上的牆壁重新粉刷了一遍。以前的牆壁已經被客人寫的體無完膚,連一點空白的地方都找不到了。

我們5/5/2014在牆角寫的名字當然也不見了。夥計跟我們說老闆最近重新粉刷過的牆壁不能寫任何字,不過地下室的牆壁還是歡迎客人塗鴉,寫上個人的名字。
