(Scroll down for Chinese version/中文版向下看)

It’s been a while since we last visited Tainan. Tainan is the oldest city in Taiwan and known for its centuries-old fortresses

This year, in addition to reviving history and ancient times, we see an emerging atmosphere combining classic and modern, east and west.

中文/Chinese:

抵達久違的台南市,除了令人再度興起思古幽情之外,這次還有一股結合古典與現代、東方與西方的新興氛圍。

  • Covering some 9.5 hectares, the magnificent Chimei Museum’s European-style building is visible from afar. Founded by Xu Wenlong, Chimei Museum was originally a private museum in Taiwan and was donated to the Tainan Government in 2012. Chimei Museum’s new doors opened to the public on New Year’s Day in 2015; the new building is located in the second section of Wenhua Road.

Chinese/中文:

從遠處便能一眼望見許文龍創辦的奇美博物館新館。它原是台灣典藏最豐富的私人博物館,2012年捐給台南市政府。新館於2015年元旦啟用,是坐落在文華路二段,佔地9.5公頃、高聳宏偉、美輪美奐的西式圓頂城堡建築。

 

  • The museum has a collection of over 4,000 pieces of Western art, musical instruments, weapons, animal display, and fossils. The not-to-be-missed violin exhibition hall on the second floor is where the violin production materials, tools, and violin history are showcased. The founder once said: “This museum will always exist for the public.” We sense the satisfaction and surprises in the eyes of the visitors.

中文/ Chinese:

館裡蒐藏了西方各類藝術品、樂器、兵器、動物標本和化石等共四千多件。不虛此行的是我們參觀了坐落在二樓的小提琴展覽館,此處展示小提琴的製作材料、工具及小提琴發展史,蒐藏世界數量最多的各式小提琴。創辦人曾說:「這座博物館將永遠為大眾而存在。」我們看到參觀民眾眼裡的滿足與驚喜

 

  • The first floor seems busy. Besides lining up for tickets to the museum, many are waiting to get into Café Cremona, a restaurant/cafe located on the first floor of Chimei Museum.

Chinese/中文:

博物館的一樓人潮擁擠,除了各類團體等待購票入博物館參觀之外,尚有許多人擠進克里蒙納咖啡館(Café Cremona)。

  • Cremona is a city famous for its art town located in the north of Italy, southeast of Milan. I did my master’s in Milan, so I was intrigued. I had to try the food they served, or even feel the air.

Chinese/中文:

殘編的碩士學位是在義大利藝術之都米蘭取得,當我聽到「克里蒙納」時不禁感到親切無比,因為它就坐落在米蘭東南部。

  • As the name suggests, Café Cremona’s menu consists mostly of Italian cuisine.

The Café is mostly self-service. After self-seating, diners can order food at the counter. At Café Cremona, you won’t find Tainan traditional snacks such as coffin board, Danzai noodles, or potside sticker soup, but various Western-style food items, including Italian pizza, continental sandwiches, set menus, hot and cold drinks, etc.

Chinese/中文:

顧名思義,克里蒙納咖啡是一家義大利餐點為主的咖啡館。克里蒙納咖啡館採自助式,客人要自行找位入座,並臨櫃點餐、取餐。這裡供應的自然不是棺材板、擔仔麵、鼎邊銼等台南傳統小吃,而是各種西式餐飲,包含義式比薩、歐陸三明治、套餐、冷熱飲等。

 

We arrive at the restaurant at noon, during which time the cafe only serves items such as chef specials and pizzas. Sandwiches are served during afternoon tea. Chef’s specials can be ordered à la Carte or with a set. The set menu includes the main dish, dessert, and a drink. The main course includes beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian.

Chinese/中文:

我們約莫在中午進入餐館,此時段咖啡館僅供應「主廚特」餐和「比薩」等品項,下午茶才供應三明治餐點。主廚特餐可以選擇單點或套餐,套餐包含主餐、甜品和飲料,主菜則包含牛肉、雞肉、魚或素食等。

In Italy, an order of pizza (usually thin-crust) feeds one. The pizza here at Cafe Cremona comes with your choice of a Coke, Sprite, Lemon Black Tea or Fanta. Bring your own cup for an NT$10 discount, and beverage refills enjoy 50% discount. The “Ice” items here include ice cream, popsicles, and crushed- ice. Ice cream is 120 NT for a scoop and 200NT for 2. The “Chi Mei Popsicle” is made of natural fruit without additives; the popsicle sticks are a limited edition and exclusive to the museum, which can be used as a bookmark. It is quite creative.

Chinese/中文:

一般而言,義大利比薩因為皮薄,通常一個人可以吃完一個比薩。在這家咖啡館點比薩,會贈送一杯可樂、雪碧、檸檬紅茶或芬達汽水。自備環保杯點飲料還可折抵台幣10元,飲料續杯可享半價優惠。這裡的冰品包含冰淇淋、冰棒、霜淇淋及剉冰。冰淇淋一球120元,兩球優惠價是200元。冰品中「奇美冰棒」是用天然水果製成,無添加物,它的冰棍還是博物館限定版,可做書籤使用,其他地方買不到,頗具創意。

Café Cremona is our first stop after a long road trip journey from Taipei. As much as exhaustion and heat kill our appetite, we still can’t resist the word “truffle” when we see it on the menu, so we order a truffle mushroom pizza, pineapple passion fruit juice, an Americano coffee, and a sparkling water. The truffle mushroom pizza is loaded with a variety of wild mushrooms, baby tomatoes, basil, and enough cheese to get stringy. The flavors taste very natural and refreshing. The pineapple passion fruit juice also preserves its original fruit flavors and is refreshing as well. Sadly, the Italian specialty “affogato” seems like too much sugar for such a hot day, so we pass. Regret hits us immediately as we leave. After all, during my hard times in Milan, I always sought comfort from an “affogato.

Chinese/中文:

我們抵達台南首站便來到這裡,旅途勞累毫無胃口,但是還是抵不過「松露」二字的誘惑。於是我們選擇了松露野菇比薩鳳梨百香果汁美式咖啡氣泡水松露野菇比薩上覆各式各樣的野菇、小番茄、九層塔和足以牽絲的起司,原始原味,非常自然爽口,兩個人吃量剛好。果汁也保存水果原味,清涼解渴,我們沒有點義大利特色飲料阿芙佳朵(affogato),亦即義大利濃縮咖啡上覆上冰淇淋,因為天氣熱,阿芙佳朵顯得糖分過多,然而一走出咖啡館隨即後悔,畢竟殘編旅居米蘭的學思的日子裡,總少不了阿芙佳朵的安慰。我深信人類的記憶無論是喜是悲,總是牽扯著食物的滋味,食物讓我們能跨越時空拾起曾經擁有的悸動。
