Once you have something really delicious,you'll can't help ordering the same thing again next time,even if you know you should try something new.I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about.I was thinking about having the apple pie from Chilis this weekend.It took me such a long time to give way to myself.How so?Cuz there's the very first Vapiano opened in Taiwan yesterday!
Despite the Italian name and dishes,Vapiano is an international chain restaurant from Germany.I've heard a lot about it from some Swedish friends,which makes me have a great expectation for it.To my surprise,we didn't have to wait to get in when we arrived.I thought there would be tons of people,since it just opened.
My friend and I had "Bruschetta Trio" for appetizer,a "Insalata Nizza(Nice salad)",a "Tomatoes and Praws Spaghetti" and a "Rucola Ravioli."
The ravioli was really creamy.Being a huge fan of cheese,I'd strongly recommend it.As for the spaghetti,my friend and I both agree that it's a nice dish,yet a little bit strange.Blame the spaghetti she chose!She got the whole wheat flavor.It wasn't that bad,but just didn't go well with an "Italian"dish.I'd say that it suits Japanese cuisine better.
I spent a great afternoon with my friend there.The urban Italian decor is cozy and chic,and the yummy food just made it a nice place to catch up with friends.Aw!And it's interesting to order their food and drink with a chip card.Such an innovative way,huh?
I didn't try their desserts this time but maybe I'll try the rice pudding next time!We didn't have enough time for the round two,dessert time,so we just randomly went to a café to chill out a bit.
