第二天的台中依旧明艳动人,上午至中午平均气温都位于摄氏23-26度。如果你平时在马来西亚很喜欢两件式,这气候是允许你这么做的。记得昨天在7-11购买的悠游卡吗?在台中,只有你拥有悠游卡你都可以免费乘搭uBus!只要是于8公里以内的路程。看来荷包钱省下了,又有更多的固打购物了。


Day 2 in Taichung is enormously attractive and welcomed by big sun, but it was not a confounded one. Average temperature was between 23-26. If you are a double-layer person like me, you are welcome to have the combination here. Back to the itinerary, remember the 'touch n go' card that we bought from 7-11 the previous day? In Taichung, you could travel for free within 8km by the bus rapid transit (BRT) or the uBus.


Now we have more excuses to go for shopping since we saved up a lot! HA!








阳光明媚的早晨,我们来到了这家极具口碑的早餐店——‘肉蛋吐司’用餐。眼看着长龙以及客满的早餐店内,心想该不会变成brunch(早午餐混合)了吧?但其实不然,员工们的效率可不是盖的,异常的流畅和快。一家店面,为了应付如此庞大的顾客群,当然少不了的是有条不紊的‘系统’。外带的顾客可于还未进入店面前的一张小桌子领取点餐表,然后加入队伍;而内用的顾客可以在找到座位以后在餐桌上领取点餐表。点餐表的颜色也与外带的不同。小小心思,竟然是可以为了节省时间提高效率的最大动作,赞!


This is a morning that sun shone gaily, pushed us to come to this famous breakfast restaurant. Initially we were turned off by the long queue. If we were to wait in the line we might as well just have our brunch there. Pheww it was nothing like we thought. Despite the long line, this restaurant possessed high efficiency and rather systematic. Dine in and takeaway both have different kind of order form - you will need to get the form filled from the table outside while the order form for dine in was inside the restaurant, on the dining table. It might be a minor action, but what it eventually led to amazed us, which deserve a high compliment!




我们点了招牌沙拉吐司、葱油蛋饼、‘肉蛋’吐司和奶茶。尽管客满和长龙,食物还是极速被送上。吐司的面包都非常非常的松软但不至于软烂,配合着很扎实但不会太重口味的馅料,很有早餐饱又健康的感觉。葱油蛋饼是我个人最推荐的,味道极其开胃。薄薄的饼皮加上葱油香味以及带点咸味,和吐司的味道来个加减的平衡。


We ordered the signature salad toast, Chinese style omelette, signature pork & egg toast (as the name of the restaurant) and milk tea. Like I said, due to the high efficiency, the food was served in lightning speed. The toast itself was very light but not up to extreme and rich and plenty fillings were wrapped inside yet the taste was not heavy at all. Personally I'd strongly recommend the Chinese style omelette as this dish would whet your appetite with its slight saltiness to balance your overall breakfast as well.




等公车时来张街拍。

如上几段提到的,乘搭uBus公车于台中市8公里之内是不需付费的,但仍需于上车时感应悠游卡。台湾之旅第二天的中午我们来到了草悟道。沿着中港路一段乘搭uBus到SOGO广场再沿着道路直到你看到这青色的牌版,再跟着所指的路线前进就能抵达草悟道了。那草悟道是什么呢?


草悟道(Calligraphy Greenway)是台中市中心一整段大范围的绿园道。带状的都市绿园道,范围:国立自然科学博物馆前经国园道(含市民广场)、国立台湾美术馆到美术园道之间绿带,全长3.6公里


As mentioned on the above, you could travel free within 8km, but you would need to scan your You You card. We've gone to Calligraphy Greenway Taichung. Take bus along "Zhong Gang" Road Section 1 and stop along SOGO Mall. Follow the green board in the picture and you would reach at Calligraphy Greenway. Here's the introduction of Calligraphy Greenway:


"Worldwide featured external performance space of green, park, and road of tourism resource of Taichung carrying local characteristic cultures and transforming to international attractive tourist destination."








在草悟道走着走着,发现了这一家类似马来西亚咖啡厅(Cafe)风格的店,本以为也是咖啡厅但是看到人潮都走进店里,就随后进去探个究竟。原来是一家每天新鲜制作半熟乳酪蛋糕、冰淇淋的有趣店面。由于当天的太阳还蛮晒的,所以我们就点了乳酪+火龙果冰淇淋试试。但如果你有机会到这家店,还是必须点他们的招牌乳酪蛋糕试试。

We discovered this dessert cafe along the path. The renovation kind of resembles the style we have here in Malaysia. To our discovery, this cafe freshly bakes the cheesecake and ice-cream daily. We tried the cheese and dragon fruit flavoured ice-cream.

走走看看的,也觉得有些疲累了。赫然让我们发现一家贩卖珍珠奶茶的春水堂,当时不禁心想:怎么这家珍珠奶茶店和我们平日看的不一样,怎么就如此富丽堂皇?同行的伙伴就告诉我原来这家春水堂是世界珍珠奶茶的发源地。哇,发源地耶!怎可以不进去试试?反正走得双脚有些累了也该歇一歇。


我们点了招牌烤奶。说实话,我最不喜欢口感有点涩的奶茶。但这家果然名不虚传,奶茶的香味重而不腻、甜度适中而起还非常的顺口,唯独珍珠太小颗和软,有点粘牙。

似乎在台湾,加入一条长长的队伍来购买食物已经变成我在追求美食的道路上必经的过程。不过没关系,美食是值得等待的。为您推荐另一份路边摊美食,应该说是必点美食——超三代葱油饼!非常爽脆的外表就不说,这次我还选搭我最爱的酸菜成为厚厚扎实的内馅,现在在打字的我肚子都在咕咕狂叫,想到都垂涎三尺。让我惊喜的是,当你很富足的要下去的时候里面的荷包蛋还会在你嘴里爆浆,加上酸菜的脆脆声,一百分的路边美食!


随后,我们也在草悟道随意的逛逛。旅行就是如此的轻松自在 :)


It seems to be pretty normal to queue for food in Taiwan and it has become a norm. But good food is worth the wait. One of the street food that I'd like to highlight is fried pancake. With the stall name "beyond 3rd generation", I reckon they started their business from the era of their grandfather. The crispiness of the pancake is to be left unsaid (for sure!) but the fillings are the main attraction. And why would it get me so addicted? The pickled cabbage that was so well marinated and pickled, that, I can't even get it off my mind even now, as I am typing this! Also the moment when they egg yolk 'exploded' in your mouth, PERFECTION!









到了晚上,初秋的天气开始变冷了,这时候来锅热辣辣的麻辣锅最好不过。选择了享有美誉的麻辣火锅店——鼎王。这家可是据说小S当初也订不到座位的,就让我们更想跃跃欲试了。它们的麻辣锅是被店家推荐可以混着酸菜汤喝的,口感又达另一层次。而酱料呢也是分为两种;一种是配麻辣汤底料的(黑醋),另一种是酸菜汤底料的(腐乳汁)。


这一个较寒冷的夜晚就被这锅麻辣汤变得温暖了。


It got rather low in temperature when it came to night in Taiwan. The feeling of literally beseeching for a hot pot especially struck hard in this time. We had chosen Tripod King to have spicy hot pot. According to one of the Taiwan shows, the ever famous celebrity Xiao S couldn't even reserve a table due to the high flow. Hence, it made us wanted to try so much. We were recommended by the workers we could actually mix the spicy and non-spicy soup up and it created another new kind of taste. They also provided two types of sauce to complement the fowl and dishes.

而我们当天入住的民宿也是位于台中市的一条偏僻的巷子里,但其实不难找,是一家颇有独特风格的民宿,结合了台湾的热情、人情味的一家民宿。

The stay of our second day in Taiwan was located along a remote alley, but it was easy to get to. It was a unique guest house that we wholeheartedly felt it combined the great passion of Taiwanese and their warmth hospitality.

先说说环境,整个环境是异常的干净。可能你会觉得我在夸大其口,但我自身本来就很怕酒店的角落或者经常不被打扫的位置肮脏,又怕木板的地会显得老旧且有种潮湿的感觉,但酣旅BnB的很新颖干净。

虽然坐落于小巷子里,但是地点非常好找。酣旅BnB就位于新光三越广场的对面,2分钟的距离就到达公车捷运站,地点优又方便!

Mr Bryan亦是非常热情的房东。除了不陌生的对话,他还会介绍我们到台中的旅游景点,并为我们安排路线,显得细心。草悟道也是房东介绍我们去的。

The overall environment of the room was extremely outrageously clean and neat. You might think I am doing lips service but to feel it you may need to experience by yourself. I am the person who usually hates the fusty old wooden floorings that have dirty on the corner, or damp wooden, but what we had in HoneyBnB was the other way round.

In spite of its location in the remote alley, it was really convenient as located opposite the shopping mall Shinkong Mitsukoshi and a 2min walk to BRT station just added bonus to it.

The landlord Mr Bryan was also an excellent host who possessed enthusiasm. We talked like friends and he actually planned our itinerary in Taichung too. How attentive! Calligraphy Greenway was one of the spots he introduced us.
