My dear friends, today I will take you to the Bigtom American Ice Cream Cafe near the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall to enjoy delicious food and beautiful scenery.
Bigtom has opened several branches in Taiwan. Many large shopping centers, such as the 101 shopping mall, have their booths. The one I went to was a founding store opened in 2002, but this is my first visit.
Founded in 1945 in the United States, Bigtom’s business philosophy is to create product differentiation based on improving traditional food recipes, reduce sugar and fat, and make it healthier.
To ensure quality, all ice creams are made in Seattle and do not add any artificial flavors, pigments, emulsifiers, preservatives, etc. They are made entirely from natural ingredients and use special techniques to make ice cream contain less air so that it is more difficult to melt at the room temperature.
Although the address of Bigtom is on Renai Road, the gate is on Guangfu S. Road. When you come from the parking lot on the west side of the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, you can see it when you walk to the left. You can also take MRT to the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall Station. It takes only 5 to 10 minutes to walk along Guangfu South Road from exit 2. The traffic is very convenient.
Upon entering the gate, you can see the cute cows stand in the flowers and plants to welcome the visitors.
The rough pebbles with the simple wooden window frames and the red flowers on the windowsill immediately appears as if I am in an American country cottage. The emerald green of the courtyard makes Bigtom a hidden paradise in the city.
When I walk on the long wooden slope, I have a sense of anticipation because I feel that a new world may appear after I pass through the slope.
We sit in this semi-outdoor space, the warm sunshine sprinkle from outside of large pieces of glass. We can enjoy the embrace of nature, but also avoid annoying mosquitoes.
Inside the store, the warm yellow light gives people a comfortable and relaxed feeling, which is quite different from the outdoor atmosphere. The store is divided into several areas with a lot of places. There are different table and chair configurations in different areas. It’s all suitable whether you want to have a meal with lots of people or chat with your close friend.
The most exciting part of the meal is the ice cream, you can choose a single ball of ice cream, or fancy ice cream. There are also some pizza, sandwiches, baked and other staple food can be ordered.
I ordered a strawberry party waffle set, including a drink.
The waffle top with a ball of ice cream. The ice cream tastes very solid and dense, and it really can eat a good taste of real materials. The muffin’s mouthfeel is softer, and it’s fine when paired with ice cream. It’s too sweet with cream. The muffin’s mouthfeel is soft, and it’s fine when paired with ice cream although I prefer crispy waffle. It’s too sweet with whipped cream.
In the course of the drink, I chose black currant tea. The taste is ordinary, the aroma is not enough, and there is a bit of astringency. It seems that besides the ice cream, other drinks and dishes need to be improved!
The store also displays and sells some goods. These brightly colored cows look very beautiful!
When I left the side door, I found that there was another beautiful outdoor scenery here, including the 101 Building and the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall. Unfortunately, I still have other things to do, so I take a few photos in a hurry and can only reluctantly leave.
I secretly decided to come here again to enjoy this paradise next time.
If you visit Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall when you visit Taiwan, it’s a lovely place where you can take a rest and have some ice cream.
