This time in Taipei, I headed to Yangming Mountain to explore one of Taipei’s more popular cafe/restaurants, called VVG Hideaway. Online, this place has been described as “secret little white house nestled in the mountains” or “heaven-like dreamy secret hiding place”, which I found exaggerated to a point of being funny, but it is true that the photos look quite stunning. Though I was never a big fan of the food from VVG group, I was still willing to trek out there just to take a look at the space.

這次在台北,抽了一天上陽明山探了探當前人氣網紅店之一的 “好樣秘境 VVG Hideaway”。之前看到對這家店的描述,大多是 “坐落于山林間的秘密小白屋”,或著 “天堂般夢幻的白色秘境” 這類的。心裡想著這也太誇張了,不過看了照片後還是忍不住被吸引。雖然知道好樣集團出品的食物向來 “…”,不過爲了美麗的環境硬是要去踩個地雷 - 大概是這樣一個心態。

To get to VVG Hideaway by public transportation, you need to take the MRT to “Jiantan Station” and hop on Bus #303 to “Qinshanli #2 Stop”. Personally I find that quite troublesome – apparently some people waited for an hour because they missed the bus – but if you happen to have a lot of time, or are lucky enough like I was to have a friend drive you, then why not explore?

如果搭乘公共交通前往,得坐捷運至 “劍潭站” 再轉搭 “303號公車” 在 “菁山里二站” 下車。個人覺得這太麻煩了(聽說有人沒看好公車時間,等了一個小時的),不過如果你剛好很閒,或著和我一樣幸運的有朋友開車載上山的話,倒不妨去瞧瞧。

VVG Hideaway is indeed a beautiful place. I was (of course) first drawn to the dessert display, which had an enticing-looking carrot cake and an ultra tall chocolate cake filled with giant marshmallows.

踏入好樣秘境的空間內,果然美。首先被甜點台吸引了過去,玻璃罩下有個看起來很不錯的紅蘿蔔蛋糕,以及一個看起來甜死人不償命的巧克力棉花糖蛋糕。

We had the sofa seats, which face floor-to-ceiling windows with greeneries beyond. The plates are nice, and the boxes used as dining tables are cute as well.

朋友訂了沙發座,有大片的落地窗,看出去是陽明山的一片綠(以及偶而的路人)。盤子漂亮,用做餐桌的箱子也很有味道。

Right next door there is a gorgeous glasshouse, and I can imagine how charming it would be to visit on a sunny day. Perhaps that’s what inspired others to call VVG hideaway a “heaven-like dream place”…

隔壁有個通透的玻璃屋,整片玻璃的設計讓空間明亮、綠意映然,用來做間隔的白色布簾也只能說浪漫浪漫很浪漫。可以想象如果是天氣好的時候來訪,陽光撒進來的瞬間大概就是網友們描述的 “天堂般夢幻” 了(笑)。

The VVG group has a knack for making random things look good on display. Spend some time browsing around and you might find some things to take home with.

玻璃屋裡古董雜物堆疊有致,也是好樣集團的signature之一。花點時間在這裡逛逛,說不定會發現想要讓你帶回家的東西。

A lovely greenhouse.

綠油油的溫室。

And some very nice books.

雜貨還好,書倒是有不少讓我想帶回家的。

So, what can we actually eat at VVG Hideaway? Flipping through the menu, the prices are not cheap for Taipei standard, and upon trying a few dishes, I confirm that they are indeed not very tasty (no surprise here). Let’s just look at some photos and forget about the rest.

那麽,在好樣秘境究竟可以吃到什麽呢?翻看了下菜單,選擇並不多,價格以台北來說也不便宜,不過來了總得試試。味道和想象一樣不怎麽樣,就不多做評價了,看看照片吧。

Truffled fries (280 NTD).

松露薯條(280台幣)。

L1170448

Chicken salad (360 NTD), what a sad looking one.

雞肉蔬菜沙拉(360 台幣)。忍不住要說一下,這看起來實在很可憐,怎麽拍都不好看。

L1170457

Hazelnut cream chicken pasta (320 NTD).

榛果奶油雞肉意大利面(320台幣)。

L1170460

The only thing I quite enjoyed was the carrot cake – it wasn’t anything special, but it is indeed a tasty piece of carrot cake. I also heard pretty good things about the lemon pound cakes here, perhaps next time, if I come back.

最令我滿意的是紅蘿蔔蛋糕 - 雖然沒多特別,但的確是塊好吃的紅蘿蔔蛋糕,搭配的奶油芝士也很ok。聽說這裡的檸檬磅蛋糕也是不錯的。

Though there are tons of room for improvement in terms of food and service, VVG Hideaway is no doubt a gorgeous place, so if you have time to spare, come for coffee and cakes and photos. The good things is that they do take reservations (I recommend the sofa seats or the glass house), so at least you won’t travel all the way out there only to find it completely packed.

其實在網上還有看到對好樣秘境的評論是 “想受氣就來這裡吃”(笑)。個人覺得沒這麽糟 - 的確服務和食物都有很大(很大)進步的空間,但不得不說它是個美的地方,有空閒時間的話,可以來來喝杯咖啡吃塊蛋糕拍拍照。好處是這裡可以訂位(建議沙發座或著玻璃屋),不用擔心遠遠跑來結果沒有位子。
