Smith & Hsu


I went to this place before and the gourmet food that brings me back again is their scone.Scone is a classic English dessert and it's easily seen everywhere.But I think it's hard to find a perfect combination,which involves a crispy surface,moderately moist inside,creamy clotted cream and fresh jelly.


It's around the end of my summer vacation,so it can't be better to catch up with friends.Karen,my cute high school friend,and I go to have a nice lunch."By convention,"the scone is a must-get,and we also have a Salad Niçoise and Sandwich with Smoked Chicken,Mango and Cream cheese.

This big box is really cool,containing different types of tea for testing smell.Then we both get Osmanthus Dong Ding Oolong Tea.








Beside the Devonshire clotted cream,you can also choose another jam to go with the scone,so I choose blackcurrant and Karen goes with honey.A bad scone would make you feel like you're eating a dough,but a good one would make you appreciate the smell of flour.Also,what captivates me is that there're two flavors of the scone,one is the original and the other is cranberry.

I just get lazy lately and I write fewer and fewer words.But I guess a picture is worths a thousand words,right?So please enjoy the visual tour with me!








Smith & Hsu

They have 5 stores around Taipei City.It's better to book a table in advance but there're only 2 available for reservation.Go check their website.
