Osaka Must-Do: Chilling out at Riverside Coffee Shops in Kitahama 大阪北濱悠哉水岸咖啡

Kitahama seems to be an under-rated travel spot in Osaka. Riverside coffee shops with outdoor seating offer a fantastic view. This is a great place to get your coffee fix, enjoy brunch, or spend a lazy afternoon.

台灣旅遊資訊還算容易找到北濱的咖啡店,但以英文旅遊資訊來說,北濱真是被埋沒了,在北濱中之島河畔的咖啡館坐了一陣子,覺得這真是大阪必排行程!適合特別安排來喝咖啡聊是非、享受早午餐、或者悠哉浪費人生一個下午。

Wafels & Dinges: flaky paradise of Speculoos and Nutella 紐約比利時鬆餅餐車

It’s been six years since Wafels & Dinges was founded. I missed it every time I was in town──either their food trucks were nowhere near me or I was standing right in front of a waffle truck while being way too full to have even one bite. When I saw the Wafels & Dinges truck across the street from Lincoln Center right after we checked in, my eyes widened with sparkles just like when the Ice Age saber-toothed squirrel sees an acorn. What a lucky start of our trip!

Wafels and Dinges都開店六年了,每次在紐約都錯過,要嘛就是他們的餐車離我太遙遠,不然就是站在鬆餅車前面但飽到一口也吃不下。這次剛到旅館放下行李一出來就在林肯中心對街看到Wafels & Dinges餐車!簡直跟冰原歷險記的松鼠看到橡栗一樣!

Macarons from Gaby et Jules

A French patisserie opened in Squirrel Hill. They sell macarons and their chef used to work for Ladurée and Fauchon in France. I had to check it out.

松鼠丘新開了一家法式蛋糕店,賣馬卡龍,師傅以前在法國的Ladurée和Fauchon工作過,豈不是應該要去試試看。

Zurich Delicacies: Luxemburgerli and Chocolate

Luxemburgerli at Confiserie Sprüngli

出發前做功課決定有三樣東西一定要吃/喝到:Rivella, Luxembergerli, 和道地香腸馬鈴薯的瑞士菜。(Rivella遊湖之旅)

Three things made my must-eat list prior to the trip: Rivella, Luxemburgerli, and a meal of Swiss cuisine with some sausage and rösti. A third of the mission was accomplished on the Lake Zurich boat trip where I tried Rivella for the first time. Luckily the rest of my mission also worked out quite well.
