This is the best I can get in Ximengding.
I realized as I grow older, I am especially picky about food, not that I am a picky food eater, but the environment should tried its best to be cosy, look nice, great prices (doesn’t mean cheap, however good things come in good value), and anything that adds up to ‘good.’
我覺得越長大啊會越在意自己吃什麼, 不是我是挑食鬼, 而是“菜好, 氣氛好, 價格好” （價格也非便宜沒好貨, 或超貴才好貨）而是要值得, 可以為以上總結的餐廳與餐點是我的感官與味蕾在尋找的對象.
I love to hang out in Ximengding when I was in elementary and middle school. It’s the coolest thing to do after school! When you were a kid, getting anything into your stomach with pocket money is the best achievement a kid can do and to satisfied themselves. Well….it’s not anymore when you are an adult, here here!
西門町是小時候的回憶. 記得下課後或是假日去西門町逛街, 隔天或星期一跟同學講時是多麼炫耀的事啊 XD 那時候逛西門町, 只要口袋的錢夠溫飽肚子, 看到什麼就塞進嘴裡, 是當小學生時可花錢的一種成就感啊！
Here, I found a nice restaurant can chill with live music and books while eating.
今天要為大家介紹, 尋尋覓覓後發現的一個可以自己來或是與三五好朋友來享受輕音樂, 看書, 想用餐點的好地方.
There are live band in the evening, can check out the schedule before you come. Aisles of shelfs of books…..the books beside where I had my dinner were all traveling books (yay! my favourite!)
晚上會有live band 表演, 可以在來之前查詢今晚的節目表. 位置旁邊還有很多書架擺滿了書, 而我這一次跟朋友在旅遊書籍旁邊用餐, 且是歐洲旅遊書, 看得我們很開心！
Peek of menu. Didn’t get a shot of all pages. There were sandwiches, pasta, quesadilla, salads, and drinks. Prices are reasonable with +10% service.
下面是菜單, 沒有照全部. 餐點包含了三明治, 義大利麵類, 墨西哥餅, 沙拉, 飲料; 個人覺得價錢算可接受範圍, 除此之外還會再加10%服務費.
My pasta was good. It SMELLs good. The truffle oil smell kept on came swifting to my noses, however I can’t taste it, agh! The tomato sauce was nice too, since I am also a picky eater about tomato sauce when eating outside, this one has my approve (check!)
我點了松露蘑菇肉醬義大利麵, 味道超級香！！！！但是所謂的松露油似乎是聞得到但吃不到, 所以邊吃時, 感覺需要邊幻想自己吃了什麼. 肉醬也蠻好吃的, 因為我吃過很難吃的肉醬, 所以對於肉醬也挺挑的, 但他們家的好吃, 通過味蕾的考驗～
My friend’s pasta. Sorry, i forgot what she ordered, but i recalled it was red sauce with steak meat on top. To our surprise, there were great big chunks of meat and we can’t finish it up.
我朋友點的pasta, 但我忘了她點的pasta名稱. 很相似的都是紅醬, 但她的義大利面上面還有切塊的牛排. 吃到一半我朋友就說吃不下了, 是一份份量十足, 上面牛排切塊很多的一份pasta!
