Coffee Tree Roastery 咖啡馆 (Bloor West) - 自助旅行/美食博客,海外生活 Shirls 四海为家

World’s Best Carrot Cake?! (Coffee Tree Roastery 咖啡馆)

by shirls on May 6, 2009 · 8 comments in 吃在四海,吃在多伦多

我曾好几次在这里提到我对咖啡的迷恋。在墨尔本住在意大利区 (Lygon Street, Carlton),天天天感受到那种走在街上随意进入一家咖啡馆也会有好咖啡在手的幸福。

可是,多伦多的咖啡,尤其是那种连锁店的,我不敢恭敬。去连锁店纯粹为了免费上网。唯一庆幸的是,多伦多人慢慢了解到咖啡的‘真谛’,好的咖啡馆也开始增加。

去年Now Magazine (多伦多免费的另类新闻和娱乐消息报纸) 刊登了最齐全的多伦多市中优质咖啡馆列表。我啊,把这份列表视如宝贝,誓要尝尽城中好咖啡。

那天去High Park 赏樱花后,就去列表中介绍在Bloor West (明天才详细介绍这区)的Coffee Tree Roastery 咖啡馆。来到门前才发现原来Ed曾带我来过。印象中,我也很喜欢这里的咖啡。

我点了我的最爱 – Caffe Latte。那时恰好是午餐时间,所以我也点了 chicken empanada (上图)。

Now Magazine 说,如你问店里的员工他们咖啡的成分是什么,答案是: ‘two parts Mexican, one part Ethiopian, one part Guatemalan with three levels of roast.’ 厉害吧!我当然没去问同样的问题。不过,喝latte 时,轻叹:“哗! 好!香浓!”

Empanada 是源于西班牙的一种小吃,也盛行于南美洲。它好像没正式的中文翻译,有些网页称它为肉馅卷饼。有点像马拉西亚的curry puff。里面的馅可任你做成各式各样的。据Wikipedia, 西班牙的empanada较大个,圆形; 南美洲的则小型,半圆状。那我以上吃的,是西班牙的呢? 还是南美洲的?

好吃吗?好吃!配上给的salsa 更好吃。不过,我这个马来西亚人嘛,觉得不够味,还是喜欢curry puff ! 嘻嘻!

吃饱后,我看到很多人桌子上有个大大块的蛋糕。我好奇,去柜台看有什么糕点。柜台写着 ‘World’s Best Carrot Cake’ 。哇!是不是真的这么好吃?! 肚子其实已饱了,不过,还是馋嘴。点的时候,问小姐可以点个小块的吗。和蔼可亲的小姐说不可以。我吃不完的话,可以给我外卖盒带回家。

你说我有吃完吗?嘻嘻,不好意思,我还是吃完这么大块的!只是它的sugar icing (糖衣) 太甜,我怕肥,不敢吃光。糕点本身很棒。微微 的红萝卜味,适当的红萝卜丝加 walnut (胡桃) 和葡萄干,很有口感。最难得的是,湿度适中,不会干巴巴的。

High Park 赏樱花后,或跑步/骑脚踏车后,来这里喝杯咖啡,吃个‘全世界最好吃’的萝卜蛋糕,多快活的人生啊。
