VVG Bistro   好樣餐廳

Restaurant / Zhongxiao Dunhua, Taipei
餐廳 /台北忠孝敦化


Opening and running a restaurant in Taipei is one of the most popular and probably one of the most difficult business to maintain. The city moves at a different rhythm with new shops opening every week (and many closing too) and restaurants that keep operating for one or two years are considered already successful and well established.

So, when we heard that VVG was founded in 1999 and today, 19 years later , they still serving food, it could only mean that they have something really good to offer... And we were not wrong.


在台北經營一間餐廳應該是最多人選擇創業的一種方式,但同時應該也是最困難的一種,這個城市總是以不同的步調在改變,常常有很多新店開幕,但也有很多結束營業,在這樣的競爭環境下,如果一間餐廳營業時間超過一、兩年,可以視為經營得非常成功吧!

然而VVG好樣於1999年成立至今,已長達19年的時間,依然為饕客們帶來許多美味的餐點,這意味著VVG有許多秀色可餐的美味佳餚吧!然而經過這次親自造訪,事實證明沒有錯!


VVG is a group with different shops around Taipei and Taichung including restaurants, Book and stationery shops, art galleries, cafes and more. The name comes from the initials of “Very Very Good” and today we want to bring you into VVG Bistro, their French restaurant located in a little alley of Zhongxiao Dunhua.

VVG好樣集團旗下有不同類型的商店,遍及台北和台中,包括餐廳、咖啡廳、書店生活道具和藝文空間等等都是屬於VVG好樣系列,這次要和大家介紹位於東區小巷中歐式風格的好樣餐廳VVG Bistro!


VVG Bistro is one of this places you would like to enjoy every lunch with a beautiful terrace outside and a door-opening inside restaurant that will make you feel relax and out of the busy and noisy streets of Taipei city center. We could not miss to try their western style brunch there and discover more about this hidden gem.

想用早午餐作為一天早晨美好的開始,來VVG Bistro準沒錯!一走進來綠意盎然,外圍栽種了許多植物,充滿綠意,餐廳有小小庭院室外座,與室內用餐區相通,形成開放式的空間,在這邊用餐有一種身在世外桃源的錯覺,令人放鬆的環境,好像可以瞬間與繁忙喧囂的台北隔離,除了好好探究這麼舒適愜意的地方外,當然絕不可以錯過西式早午餐!


Something we have been missing for long time ago in Taipei is a real Mediterranean salad. Back in Europe and America, raw salad is almost in every meal, but apparently here in Taiwan eating raw lettuce is not a popular side-dish between locals. Also the balsamic dressing was so on point that triggered some of our memories back in home. It comes with a really nice potato soup cream.

道地的地中海沙拉我們已經想吃很久了,在歐洲和美國,每一餐幾乎都會有生菜沙拉,但很顯然地台灣不喜歡吃生菜的人佔大多數,儘管如此,沙拉配上義式油醋,並附上一碗馬鈴薯濃湯 ,彷彿勾起了家鄉的回憶。

 With the brunch we received a welcome drink made of dark malt with elder flower syrup that you can mix yourself.

這杯welcome drink是由黑麥和接骨木花所製成,隨附果糖依個人喜好添加。

We started in the Italian way with a big plate of shrimp and zucchini linguine pasta. 

第一道我們從”櫛瓜鮮蝦義大利麵”開始品嚐,麵條是細扁麵,一盤的份量很足夠,蝦子肥美,料很實在!

We also ordered the English brunch with 36-hours beef chuck stew, salad with cherry tomatoes and balsamic dressing, mixed mushrooms, pine nuts, duchess potatoes, ham and baked beans on bread and eggs omelette. They also bring some French bread to accompany the meal, so delicious!

我們還點了”英式早午餐”,有36小時慢燉牛肉(牛肩肉、Negroamaro紅酒、迷迭香)、松子雜蕈菇沙拉(義式油醋、香烤松子、時令菇類、綜合萵苣)、烤馬鈴薯餅(馬鈴薯、肉豆蔻)、火腿燉豆(白腰豆、金華火腿、好樣手工麵包)以及歐姆蛋,非常豐盛的一餐。


The highlight of the lunch came with the roasted thyme-mustard chicken, potatoes, caramelized onion, radish, orange and purple carrots , zucchini and edible flowers. If you think this looks good we can say that it tastes even better!

主餐重點菜色”香烤百里香芥末雞腿”(去骨雞腿、法式芥末、百里香以及季節蔬菜),如果光是看照片就令人覺得很好吃,我們可以肯定地說是真得很好吃!






They also have some daily baked desserts like this carrot cake with caramelized orange.

甜點推薦大家可以吃吃看紅蘿蔔蛋糕配上糖漬柳橙片,口感很紮實,有點像馬芬的感覺,也許因為紅蘿蔔的關係,吃起來並不會很甜膩,絕對是吃完一塊還想來第二塊的!

After the lunch, we felt so relaxed that we decided to spend a little bit more there, so we ordered a honey lemon & pomelo soda, a refreshing way to end our day in VVG Bistro.

享用完午餐後,我們在這稍坐片刻,並點了一杯蜜檸香柚蘇打,甜甜的香柚再淋上適量的檸檬原汁,可以自由調製一杯酸甜適中的蘇打飲料,在日漸炎熱的天氣下,喝上這杯感覺格外清新順口。



The outside terrace is directly connected with the area inside.

這是先前提到的綠意盎然的庭院室外座。




If you are planning to visit VVG Bistro keep your eyes open as they are a bit hidden. Also, if you have some extra time don´t forget to visit VVG Something just in front! A little bookstore with interesting products to discover.

VVG Bistro隱身於巷弄中,如果計劃要過來用餐的話,可能要留意一下唷!另外,用餐完也可以順道去VVG書店”好樣本事VVG Something”,就在餐廳對面而已喔!
