There are two Belle Époque cafe shop, we went to the new one- the 2nd cafe shop. The two cafe shops are just across the street, isn’t too hard to find.

有兩家美好年代,我們這一次是去新的一間-小美好。這兩間隔著一條街很好找。

Where occidental and oriental meet in the era. Belle Époque gives you a scoop of how far the bubble pearl tea phenomenon can go within food.
東方與西方的結合竟在美好時代,來到這兒會發現珍珠奶茶被淋漓盡致的發揮。

It was the best of time, when Enlightenment Period started, the technology revolution, Belle Époque, the time of peace, optimism, rejoice in the air, the dawn of the new beginning….until the War came.
那美好的時代,歐洲的啓蒙運動興起、科技時代來臨,社會一切安詳與和平,人民樂觀鼓舞的氣氛瀰漫在空中,是個新世紀的到來,一切充滿希望⋯⋯直到一次大戰前。

Spotted in Taipei East District where many petite clothes shops and unique restaurants are around.
在東區服飾店與美食的巷子中藏著一間帶你進入東西美食薈萃的咖啡店。

I’ve heard and saw many people talking about it, so here we are to try it out. But….first of all, one question to ask …..do you know where the bubble tea (aka Boba) you drink in downtown or Chinatown are from? You have 30 seconds to answer and the clock is ticking!
前一陣子聽很多人在討論這間咖啡店,當然要來嚐嚐看囉~ 首先,你知道風靡全球的中國城或是歐洲的珍珠奶茶是打哪兒來的嘛?

……..

Taiwan!!!!!

Yup! The originally bubble tea (aka Boba) is from Taiwan! Here is Taiwan when you order a bubble pearl tea (or any other tea) in a tea stand can specialized into
# 1 Choosing the amount of sugar you want–100%, 70%, 50%, 30%, 0%.
#2 How cold you want your drink–100%ice, 70%ice, 50%ice, 30%ice, 0%ice
(We Chinese think it’s not good to drink too much cold drinks especially girl as it’s not good for your body)
~珍珠奶茶來自台灣。 而台灣的茶飲店可以讓你客制您獨一無二的茶飲料噢!點了飲料之後,可以
#1 選糖量- 全糖、7分糖、半糖、少糖、無糖
#2 選冰量- 冰、7分冰、半冰、少冰、無冰
尤其女孩兒不要常吃冰,可是對身體不好噢~

Anyway what we have today is the ‘bubble tea pancake’!
Uh huh, you didn’t heard me wrong! The pancake is made out of black tea topping with bubble pearls. In between layers and on top of the pancake are milk foam, which I thought maybe greasy or very creamy, however it wasn’t that bad than I have in mind and was a great combination to the pancake. The pancake size is humongous as well, the size of a face.
今天我們點了招牌珍珠奶茶鬆餅~ 可沒聽錯是「珍珠奶茶」口味的。!由紅茶製成的紅茶鬆餅,搭配熱騰騰的珍珠,鬆餅與鬆餅之間及最上層是牛奶打成的奶泡,口感不會很油膩或甜膩,與紅茶鬆餅及珍珠的搭配剛剛好。鬆餅超大的跟人臉一樣大!

There was an Oreo kind of pancake as well which my friends and I didn’t order cos she said “you’ll just be eating gigantic size of OREO, since the pancake is made out of Oreo, so there’ll be not that much of a big surprise than this one.”
She does have a point here and what’s more it’ll be too much for 3 girls to eat two gigantic pancake. Suggestion for portion would be 1-2 pancakes for 3 people.
還有Oreo口味的鬆餅,但學妹一直笑說「不就是Oreo組成的!妳吃來吃去都還是Oreo, 只是變成軟綿綿Oreo口感鬆餅。」哈哈~也是啦~以及份量說實在蠻大的,所以我們3位女孩點了一份珍珠奶茶鬆餅,再各點一杯飲料。 建議三五好友來,3人點1-2份鬆餅差不多就夠了,不然會太飽。

Here’s my chocolate marshmallow.
這是我的暖暖棉花糖巧克力。

This cafe have limited consumption either a dish or a drink per person. Well…anyhow just add up the price of drink/dishes to the bill they want (I recalled it was 120NTD/ per person) and it’ll be just fine.
Sounds reasonable to me, I mean the cafe shop run business and yea, let them do their business. Well there is one coffee shop, I dare not recommend since I don’t like it that much cos they said ‘each person must order a drink besides the dishes” very absurd isn’t it!
這裡有低消,沒記錯了話是120NTD/人,只有所有人的消費有超過總額數字就好。其實也還好,畢竟出來開店的人就是來賺錢,總不能大家點一份鬆餅都喝水吧?我覺得這比另一家規定每人除了點一份餐點外還要點飲料好多了,實在不深得我心,所以暫不推薦了~

Wikipedia said: ” The Belle Époque or La Belle Époque was a period in French and Belgian history that is conventionally dated as starting in 1871 and ending when World War I began in 1914. Occurring during the era of the Third French Republic (beginning 1870), it was a period characterized by optimism, peace at home and in Europe, new technology and scientific discoveries. The peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition. The Belle Époque was named, in retrospect, when it began to be considered a “golden age” in contrast to the horrors of World War I.
USA Period: In the newly rich United States, emerging from the Panic of 1873, the comparable epoch was dubbed the Gilded Age.
United Kingdom Period: In the United Kingdom, the Belle Époque overlapped with the late Victorian era and the Edwardian era.
Germany Period: In Germany, the Belle Époque coincided with thereign of Kaiser Wilhelm II.
Russia Period: With the reigns of Alexander III and Nicholas II.

維基百科說:美好時代時期在法國與比利時歷史上,大約始於1871年到第一次世界大戰1914年之間,是法國政府第三共和期間,那一時期的法國充滿著希望、樂觀,而歐洲正處於啓蒙運動,科技革命時期,許多今日我們在用的日用品都是在那時候發明,而日漸成熟的。這一階段的社會和平讓巴黎生生不息,藝術薈萃達到巔峰,許多的文學、音樂、戲劇、視覺藝術都是在那時期奠定基礎與為世人所贊歎與認同。美好年代,此黃金時期之稱為與之後令世人恐懼的一次世界大戰時期做強烈對比而有此名。
美國的美好年代:新興、自由國度的美國的美好年代並肩著當時其1873年爆發的經濟恐慌與美國北部和西部的掏金熱潮,很多人從歐洲移民來這做勞工階級的工作,當時的美國正處經濟起飛的階段。
英國的美好年代:橫跨維多麗亞時代晚期與愛德華時代。
德國的美好年代:威廉國王二世時期
俄國的美好時代:沙皇亞歷山大三世與尼古拉斯二世時期
