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。
