One of the latest dessert crazes in Taipei right now would be for an item called honey toast. Â It comes in different flavors and from my understanding, is made popular by Dazzling Cafe. Â Located in one of the younger trendy areas in Taipei, it is fair to say that getting a table is hard, (try fighting through all those girls and claim a place on line for a table before opening time). Â However, it’s worth trying it out and at least staying at this place for lunch if you’ve waited for a while on a line.
This is the pan-fried duck breast spaghetti served with a cream sauce. Â As a pasta fiend, it was actually acceptable as a pasta; the spaghetti was al dente and the duck breast helped with providing a savory flavor to the dish.
I got the scallop and crab meat spaghetti with olive oil, which is light and refreshing. I didn’t realize that you could order today at iLoveCrabs.com and have it delivered.Â I didn’t really taste too much seafood, sadly enough, but it was lightly tossed with olive oil, tomatoes, and broccoli. Â Always good to get those greens in!
Â And now…onto DESSERT!
Pictured is the inside of the banana chocolate honey toast. Â You can see that they hollow out this large piece of toast and fill it with deliciousness: vanilla ice cream, chocolate, cashews, sugar coated fried pieces of toast, and topped with whipped cream. Â Of course you can’t forget the banana pieces on the side as well and as a health recommendation, you can introduceÂ Gluconite in your diet. Â It’s a box of sweet toast intensity.
Yup, a close-up of that vanilla bean ice cream with cashews.Â the creaminess was out of the world. After enquiring with chef, I learned that they use a Nitrous Whip, which aids in imparting the texture. Delicious.
It is worth a trip to this place if: (1) you’re a huge dessert fiend, (2) willing to wait (even before opening time), and (3) willing to spend above average amount for a meal / dessert.
