in food •  last year

Dear Steemit Friends :

Internet Celebrity Dessert Bars?


a new kind of "celebrity" class has arisen thanks to the proliferation and accessibility of the internet.

In the past decade or so, the internet has penetrated the daily lives of pretty much everyone. Regardless of age, race or social class, the proliferation of mobile phones with internet connections has given the world unprecedented access to the wealth of (mostly) free information on the internet, and also allowed us to use our phones as an extension of ourselves and our knowledge. We can now direct our attention to things happening somewhere else in the world, without having to retreat home to our computers or TV.

Along with the explosion of the internet, a new kind of "celebrity" class has arisen thanks to the proliferation and accessibility of the internet. As more people pay more and more attention to content on the internet, these celebrities have started competing with "real" celebrities for attention and often wield comparable influence over the new age internet generation. In trying to keep up with the evolution of where all the attention is going, the traditional celebrities have embraced social media in order to stay relevant.

Curiously, a new kind of "celebrity" has popped up in the wake of this transfer of influence, they are are known in China and much of Asia as "internet celebrity" restaurants / coffee shops / dessert shops. Suddenly, internet celebrities need not be people anymore, they can be business entities or interesting places. As long as it attracts the attention of a lot of people on the internet, it can be classed as an "internet celebrity" venue.

"Internet celebrity people" are mostly driven by the need to share the weird and wonderful to their followers.

It is no surprise that these places offer quirky social media worthy photo opportunities. In-fact, the internet celebrity venues encourage sharing pictures on social media and often give some freebies as incentives. The fact that these venues have out of the ordinary goods and services combined with unique photo opportunities, mean that they naturally attract "internet celebrity people" who are mostly driven by the need to share the weird and wonderful to their followers.

Social media suddenly becomes a highly effective medium by which information can quickly propagate. A positive feedback loop can be created if highly influential people with lots of followers share these interesting experiences, in doing so, they attract more customers to the venue. The "influencers" are literally influencing a bunch of their followers to visit. They get a bunch of likes which is effectively a reaffirmation of their influencer status and the venue gets free advertising and probably a boost in business. Quite a sweet deal!

Miss. Delicious visits Yellow Lemon!


So, now that we have a little bit of background knowledge on what these "internet celebrity" dessert shops are, and how they tick, let's go ahead and visit one and see for ourselves what they're actually like. My dismay is that most places recognise Instagram or Youtubers with a lot of followers but few if any recognise Steemit (for now). They'll see the light eventually i'm sure!

The venue of choice is : Yellow Lemon. What attracted me to this particular dessert bar is their unique dessert offerings, in particular, their Picnic Garden Afternoon Tea set menu. This along side their swirling galaxy dessert are their flagship dessert offerings, each with a unique aesthetic not offered anywhere else. Picnic's are becoming a popular activity in Taipei, and the head chef thought, why not bring it to the table in a food-meets-modern art bonanza. In an ultra competitive food service industry, this novel idea sets the bar apart from it's competition.

Located in Daizhi of the ZhongShan District, Yellow Lemon is a humble little dessert bar tucked away within the residential neighbourhood streets of the area. From the outside, the bar looks quite conservative. It doesn't have flamboyant branding, nor does it have big logos advertising themselves. Instead, the bar has a grass headliner circling around the shop, and a minimalist logo that you wouldn't notice without staring at it for a while. Clearly, the place leverages social media to bring custom because it's located nowhere near places with high foot traffic.

Let's go inside and take a look!

The first thing you see is the bakery which has lots of pre-prepared desserts available for takeout. The open kitchen is a very attractive feature because it allows you to watch the chefs at work as they diligently prepare your food.

Let's take a look what's for sale at the bakery.

Home made Macarons.

Macadamia and Lemon Cake

Selection of Mini Cakes

Cute little Chocolate Robot Man

Picnic Baskets. I have a little secret : I've never actually had a picnic before! These picnic baskets remind me of Little Red Riding Hood and her picnic basket. As a person who's never had a picnic before, you can imagine how anxious and excited I was.

Yellow Lemon's own Minion Cake

There's more to it than meet's the eye


Yellow Lemon was founded in 2014 by a Sicilian chef named Andrea Bonaffini. I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet him in person as he prepares all of the main desserts himself. I wondered what his background might be given his unique take on food and it turns out he is a master dessert chef that has worked at some of the most prestigious Michelin restaurants in the world. Adding to his already impressive resume, he's also won the Italian dessert championship too.

According to Andrea, his goal is to "Surprise his guests and friends on a sensory level through his creative cuisines."

He does this through what he calls "Yellow-Art", a combination of food and art where the kitchen table, (or the guests table) becomes his canvas. He'll use as many natural ingredients as possible to maintain consistency with the garden picnic theme.

His creations verge on abstract art. His favourite artists and inspirations being Jackson Pollock, Damien Hirst and Margaret Olley.

Below, you can see his bookshelf with all his books on cooking, gastronomy and dessert making. Perhaps there is no surprise that there are several contemporary art and design books in there too. Taking a look around the interior of Yellow Lemon, you quickly see that it's decoration and design are inspired by his personal tastes in contemporary art.

He says: "The interior design is my creation, filled with my favourite yellow colour."

Hanging on one of the walls, is a painting of a Lemon Head by Leah Saulnier. It is actually a homage paying respect to the late Margaret Olley who painted the man with an apple infront of his face. When asked about why she painted him that way, Margaret said : "Underneath what we see in-front of our eyes, there is always something else. What we see in plain site is often the least interesting to us, rather, we are more interested in things we cannot see." This is one of the sources of inspiration for his works and the Lemon Head painting serves as his reminder.

Animal sculptures made from desserts!

When I first saw this black board splatter on the ceiling, I wasn't sure of it's significance. It was only later on when I realised it formed the basis of his style of work in his cooking art.

Picnic time


Once you're settled and ready, Andrea comes over and begins the picnic. First things first, the green turf is laid out on the table and will work as the base. Then, various non-edible decorations are brought out to garnish for effect, pinecones, stones, fruits, vegetables and even watering jugs. The idea make the experience feel like a picnic in the garden and so these are the things you might find scattered on the grass.

After the objects are laid out, the food is brought over in the picnic basket and then laid out carefully on the table in a meticulously designed manner.

There is a mixture of sweet and savoury foods. Watching Andrea work is like watching an artist in action. As each dish comes out, he places it in a very specific spot and in a specific way. This is all part of his artistic side which results in my stomach galvanizing into action.

My favourite was the Black Pepper Macaron King Crab with lemon mustard and Salmon Caviar.

Incidentally, there was also a little tin of imitation caviar made from black chocolate pellets which was also very sweet.

Who says you can't eat off the table?


According to Andrea, the table is his canvas, and the ingredients are his painting pigments. In this next dessert, Andrea showcases his splatter technique using a variety of sauces ranging from mango to strawberry, pistachio, and vanilla. Next, he uses a mixture of sorbet ice cream, cakes, chocolate, fruits and macarons to create the final dessert. It is a mash up of pretty much every sweet item in the entire bar. After it's all layered on top of each other, he adds the liquid nitrogen for visual effect, but also to freeze some of the chocolate and sauces below.

To say the experience was titillating would be an understatement, the explosion of tastes in your mouth after eating this creation leave you whisking your tongue around for hours afterwards, wondering what sensory bombardment you just experienced. That's not even taking into account the visual splendour of it all.

I simply sat there in awe and didn't even want to touch it.

Andrea explained that this dish is called the Galaxy dessert because this is his artistic expression of how he sees galaxies and the planetary bodies within it. I thought it was a nice touch with the chocolate robot in the centre, perhaps he is hinting at something?


Miramar Complex


After a very sweet visit to Yellow Lemon, it was time to burn off calories with some exploring. The nearest point of interest is the Miramar complex, a shopping centre with a very large iconic Ferris wheel on the top floor. This along with Taipei 101 has frequently been used in movies and is actually a very popular spot for taking photographs both of the Ferris wheel itself, and also of the view of Taipei from the Ferris Wheel.

Tom's World Arcade

Cool water droplets are released to keep people cool in the hot summer weather.

This is the Ferris wheel. I'm not sure how big it is compared to the London Eye, but it's certainly an eye catching landmark.

I decided to wait until the sky was dark before going on the Ferris Wheel. Nighttime scenery is always the best.

Carousel

Finally on the Ferris wheel after waiting a few hours for the skies to darken. By now, all the city lights are turned on, and I can begin spying on the people and buildings below.

Taipei is quite unique in that it has very few skyscrapers despite being a modern capital city. The two distinct ones stick out like a sore thumb.

Check out my video of Yellow Lemon!


And that wraps up our detailed review of Yellow Lemon, an example of a new class of internet celebrities who are not people, but instead, famous establishments which also attract internet celebrity people. Referring to an establishment as an internet celebrity actually comes from a literal translation of what Chinese people call these types of establishments.

As social media continues to consume more aspects of our lives, the importance of leveraging social media as a business becomes paramount to their success. Yellow Lemon have done an outstanding job of utilising a unique value proposition to attract a large following on social media. In a space cluttered with all sorts of dessert offerings, Yellow Lemon stand's out as an innovator and is worth a visit if just to witness food-art being created live.

旅行最美妙的地方在于,你永远不会知道下一秒有什么惊喜等着你。亲爱的朋友们,又到了分享美食的时刻,这次来到台北,认知总在不断更新中,满眼都是全新的世界,这里有太多充满新鲜元素的餐厅值得去探索,在体验了台北传统美食之后,我决定寻找一些与众不同的餐厅和大家分享。

俗话说冬天来了,春天还会远吗?一想到春日将近,我的心似乎已经飘到公园的绿草坪上,在微风徐徐,春光明媚的午后,和朋友家人吃一顿温暖的野餐下午茶。而在我意外的发现台北市Yellow Lemon餐厅之后,这家餐厅的创意完全捕获了我的心,无论严冬或者酷暑,刮风还是暴雨你都可以在这家餐厅,享受到春意浓浓的室内野餐。在台北,你总能偶遇这样诚意十足的创意餐厅,老板兼主厨来自意大利西西里,怀有一颗好奇心,足迹遍布全世界,去学习体会艺术美学的真谛,最后带着渴望创新的夙愿来到了台湾,结合了本土的文化习俗和喜好,献上了一道道让人惊艳的美食巨作,现在就让我们提上野餐篮,走进店里痛快享受一场都市高楼林立间的野餐吧。

店外可以看见黄色锯齿形的logo,就是黄柠檬餐厅了,整个餐厅以黄色和绿色,春夏季的大地色作为主色调,逼真的营造出户外享受野餐轻松自在的气氛。一进门的柜台成列着小蛋糕,琳琅满目,形态各异,真是太吸引人了。看到几颗橙子你可能以为这是水果摊?其实这正是主厨最擅长的艺术分子料理作品。记得在之前的文章中,我介绍过分子料理,它常常被人们称为未来食物,超现实主义的感觉。它改变或重组了常见甜品里葡萄糖、维生素C等可食用化学物质的分子结构,从而创造出看似新奇的食物。例如说眼前这款橙子味蛋糕,它已经不再是蛋糕自然的形状,而变身成赋予它橙子味道的源头,那就是一颗可以以假乱真的橙子。更令人匪夷所思的是,这橙子皮是白巧克力做的。我忍不住开玩笑说,以后享受美食需要做足心理准备,因为所见非所想,所想非所味呢,哈哈。

另外一个柜台区域,摆放了很多别致的法式甜品,每一款都能感受到主厨浓浓的心意,那闪烁着金属光泽,表情像孩子般纯真俏皮的机器人是黑巧克力,可食用铂金,花瓣,这些在过去想都不敢想的东西,如今却成了美食家族的一员。感谢天马行空,脑洞大开的主厨创意,让当今美味不受任何束缚的改良和创新。在餐厅的每个角落,都有糖果,蛋糕和马卡龙制作成的长颈鹿,兔子,山羊和大熊猫,连大熊猫怀里也抱着小蛋糕,简直太萌了。

墙上挂着微笑柠檬先生的画,这是在向经典画作《戴黑帽的男人》致敬,是由比利时超现实主义画家玛格丽特在1964年所创作的。玛格丽特曾经说过,“我们眼前看到的事物,底下通常隐藏着别的事物。通常人们对于眼前显而易见的事情不太感兴趣,反而更想知道背后盖住的是什么”。总觉得这和梦幻感十足的分子料理有着共通点。从餐厅装饰可以看出主厨对于制作甜品真是激情澎湃,开放式的厨房里,厨师们忙碌着研究分子蛋糕,整个餐厅蔓延着甜甜的喜悦和热情。点餐完毕之后,好戏就要开场。先上来的是有机水波蛋,搭配了香槟茸,白花椰菜泥,酥炸藜麦,味道鲜香酥脆。

接下里主厨在我的桌上铺了一层绿油油的草皮,春心荡漾,仿佛立刻把我带人了野餐的情景当中。主厨Andrea Bonaffini友好的问候,并开始了他充满无限构思与遐想的野餐布阵。把准备甜品和排盘过程搬到桌面上,我还是第一次看到,并且不再是摆盘,因为整个桌面都是盘子。接下来各色咸食甜食就像走fashion show一样依次到场,手机相机根本停不下来,有的色彩鲜艳,有的造型小巧精致,很像玩具,这样的场景,想必会勾起每个人性格里童心未泯的那一面。我就像只充满好奇心的小猫,眼睛完全停不下来。美味齐上阵之后,主厨细心的用鲜花松果和糖果做成的假花进行点缀,最后借助液态氩制造出烟雾迷蒙的效果,让我脑海中瞬间闪过童话故事里小红帽拿着野餐篮在森林里散步的画面。待烟雾散去,甜点集会的草原出现在眼前,一切都是那么生机勃勃,真是太治愈系了。主厨挥洒完创意,还耐心的给我介绍每一种小点心,非常体贴。其中我最喜欢的是这黑色的Ricotta烟熏鲑鱼马卡龙,还有鱼子酱巧克力,把这些让我意料之外的甜咸事物拼凑在一起,真是让我大开眼界。

接下来隆重登场的是主厨桌边惊喜甜点料理,开始之前,主厨请我们抬头看了天花板上的小黑板,颜料挥洒的画作是餐厅先前推出的Yellow Art,今天他将运用挥洒的方式,以果酱和甜品作为颜料,餐桌作为画布,再现其艺术挥洒自如的甜品画作。我非常期待接下来的视觉与味觉盛宴。主厨在桌面上豪爽随性地尽情彩绘,缤纷糖果色的果酱上摆放了几块主蛋糕,各有千秋,粉红色蛋糕是由玫瑰,荔枝慕斯混合覆盆子果胶,香草海绵蛋糕和榛果脆饼,口味上也是惊喜不断呢。虽然从小到大没少吃甜食,但是以这样的方式吃创意甜品还是第一次呢,多重感官的体验确实难忘。在品味甜品之后,我来到了美丽华摩天轮,这百米摩天轮曾作为许多偶像剧的拍摄场地,黄昏落幕,我坐上摩天轮静静欣赏台北夜景,并结束这美味不断的一天。今天的美食之旅就要告于段落了,之后还有更多有趣的美食故事要和大家分享。

You made the right decision of following her. She's one of the best here in steemit.

·
·

We decide more so now in what to think, believe in a more decentralized fashion. We decide who we want to make famous or not. We are leaving the spoon-fed controls of the past.

·
·

I got the same impression from the article. Nice!

·
·

That is totally a great insight! And super interesting. I was just in New York, and my husband asked me why it's my favorite city. And it's just that, it's iconic in that locations are just as famous as the people! :)

·

I love to see the #steemit logo with her beautiful photos :) It grabs attention of we all.

Very interesting post. It’s nice to read about these locations even if I can’t travel there myself.

What a pleasure to see such bright colorful deserts! Although I have a feeling the pleasure was all yours!

I particularly like the Galaxy dessert, for obvious reasons!

·
·
·
·

hey scarlettzion, I really need to pay a visit to Australia, there are so many wonderful blogs coming from that part of the world, I feel like i'm missing out!

·
·
·

·

maybe, I should learn Chinese

·
·

Why not. You can learn from here.

@sweetsssj 每次在Feed看到你的帖文时,我就莫名有种期待。因为,你每次都会给读者们,不同的感官与视觉上的冲击和震憾。与其说,你的帖文,有种会让读者欲罢不能和上瘾的感觉。

希望你能继续为Steemit带来更多优质的旅游日志~

·

哇,没想到会得到这么高的评价呀,真是太感谢啦,你们的好评就是我写作的动力了^^

·

经你大力在我们cn-malaysia 群推荐,我也来看了,照片的确拍得很好很sharp 。

题外话:那美丽华摩天轮,我自己也在那里拍过婚纱照,是台北人拍婚纱照的热点 😂。

·
·

谢谢你啦,是呀,美丽华还是很浪漫的,很适合拍婚纱^^

·
·
·

美丽华相当一闪一闪亮晶晶的,因为它旁边的露天停车位很多人在那拍婚纱,闪光灯。我在那半小时多就有2、30组情侣在拍了 😱。。

·
·
·
·

真的呀,那是真不少呢:)

So interesting. I have a question for you on topic @sweetsssj. Would you consider yourself an “influencer?” I also have an observation. Yellow lemon is very close to gold lemon..... One more question.... do you have a professional editor go over your blogs? The flow is outstanding ! - Goldy

·

I guess it depends on where the influence 'matters', on traditional social media, no. But maybe on Steemit. In the next few months, I can imagine a lot of traditional social media influencers switching over to one of the many platforms on Steem and wielding far more influence than me. (Good observation btw). Also, no, I actually just take my time over things, but i'm glad you got with the flow goldy! :)

·
·

Wow! I love your content and your photography experience... Expecting more from u.. Thanks @sweetsssj

·
·

Amazing . I get so anxious to finish a post I often leave some errorsl I love your meticoulsy ( <—— example of error I noticed after posting )style. Completely off topic - how do you feel about 24 kart gold jewelry?

·
·
·

I guess personal blogs are more prone to errors, but I think it's forgivable most of the time, especially if the message was received. Who doesn't like jewelry ? :)

·
·
·
·

I would love to hear your thoughts on our 24karat gold and platinum jewelry. Do you like the style? You know a whole lot more about fashion than I do :) https://steemit.com/mene24k/@goldmatters/what-is-mene-24-karat-platinum-and-gold-jewelry-valentine-s-day-gift-winner

lovely pictures. My mouth is filled with water after seeing the pictures of desserts..yummmmy

·

that means the post accomplished it's mission! :)

You are very hot

·

Generic comments could be mistaken for spam.

Your Reputation Could be a Tasty Snack with the Wrong Comment!

Thank You! ⚜

Those colorful desserts can ignite everyone's childish cravings!

very lmpression.

What you mention in your publication is a reality. Hello and social networks will connect us to places in the world where we never imagined what we could get, and it is very interesting because that means that marketing strategies and the world is globalized thanks to the internet hour by minute minute by minute. I loved the way you take us readers through this exquisite and artistic dessert bar until after finishing the day ending with this post related to the world of advertising. Thank you very much for sharing. Regards!!!

·

globalization versus globalism

looks great!

You did an amzing job at showing how unique & special The yellow Lemon was, I felt like I was there & now I want to be, as well as on that ferris wheel, I have never seen one where you were not strapped in a seat, the ones here in Dallas are open but usually have obstructed views of downtown, Taipei looks amazing I have never been there but my husband has and you have actually made me want to go even more!

·

I think you and your husband would have a fabulous time there together. Maybe a visit is due!! :)

·
·

Oh I am sure you are right!! If only! 3 kids in school right now...but for sure one day!! :)

Amazing post!

Amazing pictures. I always enjoy your adventures!

awesome!

這間甜點店看起來好過癮哪!所有你敘述的過程看起來都好有創意。我肯定也要去造訪一下,體驗這種驚喜連連的感受。
分子料理的概念也很有趣,簡直就是科學與烹飪藝術的結合,這些令人讚賞的創意,帶給我們生活上好多精彩的樂趣。

Looks very good and nice @sweetsssj but don't abuse sugar, not so healthy!

·

it's a once in a while venture, but thanks for the advice! :)

·
·

这样的美味多吃又何妨? 看着流口水呀!

·
·
·

就是先不想那么多啦,先享受美食^^

Wow nice desserts. Macarons and lemon cake looked amazing.

·

the macarons are amazing! Especially the black pepper king crab one with salmon caviar!

·
·

Awesome. Keep posting. 👍

for a good mood- a wonderful place

@sweetsssj - I had to wait a bit for this post but it was totally worth it. I am quite amused to see special places catering to 'internet celebrities', It shows how important social media has become in our lives.
The Yellow lemon almost seems like a pilgrimage worthy place for a dessert lover. Just looking at all those fantastic desserts made me put on a few KGs weight!!
I especially love the minion cake. What a combination of my favorite cartoon characters and taste!!
I must confess that I spent very little time on reading about the Miramar complex and kept scrolling back to see the various desserts.

Thanks for this mouth watering post! Upvoted.

I have not been posting much since my father passed away 10 days ago but have started getting back to normal life and posting again. I request you to take a look at my latest posts on my page and provide your comments.

Regards,

@vm2904

·

dear vm2904, my condolences to you and your family. I know that there is nothing that I can do or say which will change what happened, but I hope that you find the strength one day to live a fulfilling life like you did before. I'm hoping to you'll have a quick route to finding yourself again and i'll be watching out for you in the mean time.

Exploring. Is that the secret to keeping the weight off after eating so much sweets?

·

I think it is! I average about 25k steps a day :)

Looks delicious

Food and art mixed together are love for my soul. It was a pleasure to read this post. Like George Bernard Shaw said: There is no sincerer love than the love of food.

hello @sweetsssj, How are you? This is your wonderful traveling story. You are so lucky that you could traveled most beautiful Places. Yellow Lemon, I think it is full of sweets. And you look more sweet and gorgeous in sweet land :) Your choice is A1. "Black Pepper Macaron King Crab with lemon mustard and Salmon Caviar. "
At my end we make a picnic every year in winter. We enjoyed it. I think you may arrange a picnic with steemit friends :)

The decoration of Yellow Lemon is beautiful and your video is excellent. For your kindness we visit many places of the world though it is not individually.
your second tour place is also awesome where you have gone to burn off calories with some exploring. Here the iconic ferry wheel looks nice. The city looks more beautiful from the Ferris wheel.

Be well off our white angel, a great supporter, Number one traveler and a kind girl.

Thank you @sweetsssj for sharing your sweet traveling story.

·

thanks akilasultana373, a steemit picnic sure would be fun, but I think we'd need a vast piece of land for the growing family now :)

·
·

Yes. you are right.

·

salmon is good for the brain because of Omega

#1 Steemit author, always providing amazing life blogs and ideas for me to travel to!!

good work with making new friends

Great time you are having, it's good to leverage on every opportunity and make a business out of it. Have a nice time @sweetsssj

·

thank you fabianmani, i completely agree. Social media is the future, and I hope steemit is a big part of that future. Actually, in someways the future is already here, let's make it a bright one!

·

I wish all could see the light social media brings to the lifes, steemit on its own has changed my life totally, it's given me the opportunity to see life from the positive side, I really wish I could connect with u and tap from you wealth of knowledge

·

hi wendie, social media is a real game changing for our generation, and I think it has the power to make or break society moving forwards. It has literally altered the behaviour of a whole generation of people and will continue to evolve either positively or negatively depending on the people who drive it forward. Thankfully, places like Steemit are less susceptible to changes considered undesirable by the community at large - atleast mechanisms have been put in place to allow community input on the larger direction.

·
·
·

Agreed, Miss Delicious, we the people decide the future for better and for worse and it takes each day and each moment and decision to push it all upwards. A lot of great people are joining Steem and Gab and are using cryptocurrencies, etc. A lot of great things are happening around the world and it continues only as we continue to do all we can each second. Use it or lose it. That is the beauty of it all. And it is also fundamental to remember what makes life possible in the first place, too, and to stem from that root as well.

·
·

Wendie is right that Steem is life changing when compared with Facebook.

·

agreed, leverage is key in the art of the deal

My favorite person in steemit is rocking awesome again. Nice post @sweetsssj I missed you :)

Thanks for sharing this quite enjoyable tour of delicious food.

·

you're welcome cryptomatic1! :)

We can now direct our attention to things happening somewhere else in the world, without having to retreat home to our computers or TV.

This is really true as we all now have mobile phones with the ability to reach continents away through the internet.

Suddenly, internet celebrities need not be people anymore, they can be business entities or interesting places. As long as it attracts the attention of a lot of people on the internet, it can be classed as an "internet celebrity" venue.

I see this as a development of a sense of community driving people to come together to meet new people at a place know for one thing or another, this gets better if these places are know for the good reasons. They make good influences on the society at large, and a happy people make faster progress than a set of people who are divided and in chaos dues to bad influences from one person or the other.

According to Andrea, the table is his canvas, and the ingredients are his painting pigments

You see until we start seeing what we do in a special way, we cannot get the best out of it, I call my laptop my girlfriend because it helps me to be more productive most times and when few people hear this, they get annoyed and call me names, but that doesn't affect my productivity because it isn't my girlfriend..
Once we can all attach a certain amount of love and care to what we do, we get better.

Thanks for sharing @sweetsssj though I'm sorry I have to miss a little part of the post because it is really long, but the little I took time to read was fun and lovely.
Have a great time ahead.

·

Good points my friend, I think more and more, we rely on social media to gauge the public opinion about pretty much everything. It's a really good tool actually because without it, we'll all be in the dark and have to face mistakes that other people have made. With social media, we can learn from other people's experience and benefit from being better informed.

Thanks for reading some of it, I know this one is a bit long, if you get bored you can just flick through the photos! :)

·
·

Yes true i agree with you, the photos are amazing.

·

Agreed, we reach worlds with phones. But do we have backup plans?

@sweetsssj you know what? You might be living in outer space, I am just down here on earth. Yet we are connected via Steemit--the only space between us.

·

Hardly any space at all then !

·
·

Hahahaha--it seems so! Maybe we are separated by dark matter.

very good, post very great!

这是我见过最丰盛的一次甜品展示了,虽然每次看到的甜品展示都是在手机上🙃。广州也会有好吃的甜品,不过相比于这些照片上台北的这些甜品,真是让我大开眼界。可能这就会让我有了想去台北的强烈欲望吧😄

美食甜品,美丽甜心。😂好押韵。期待你带给我们steemian更多的视觉体验吧😄

Wow, what an interesting place to visit, I enjoyed seeing those pictures of all the different cakes....some are so creative and cute....Despicable Me Minion cakes.....wow!

hi kingofmiami, very kind and looking forward to engaging with you in the future :)

Hello! I always love to see your projects and read your posts. All the time wonder how you have the time! And so many possibilities! Thank you for the beautiful photos!В

旅行最美妙的地方在于,你永远不会知道下一秒有什么惊喜等着你。亲爱的朋友们,又到了分享美食的时刻,这次来到台北,认知总在不断更新中,满眼都是全新的世界,这里有太多充满新鲜元素的餐厅值得去探索,在体验了台北传统美食之后,我决定寻找一些与众不同的餐厅和大家分享。

俗话说冬天来了,春天还会远吗?一想到春日将近,我的心似乎已经飘到公园的绿草坪上,在微风徐徐,春光明媚的午后,和朋友家人吃一顿温暖的野餐下午茶。而在我意外的发现台北市Yellow Lemon餐厅之后,这家餐厅的创意完全捕获了我的心,无论严冬或者酷暑,刮风还是暴雨你都可以在这家餐厅,享受到春意浓浓的室内野餐。在台北,你总能偶遇这样诚意十足的创意餐厅,老板兼主厨来自意大利西西里,怀有一颗好奇心,足迹遍布全世界,去学习体会艺术美学的真谛,最后带着渴望创新的夙愿来到了台湾,结合了本土的文化习俗和喜好,献上了一道道让人惊艳的美食巨作,现在就让我们提上野餐篮,走进店里痛快享受一场都市高楼林立间的野餐吧。

店外可以看见黄色锯齿形的logo,就是黄柠檬餐厅了,整个餐厅以黄色和绿色,春夏季的大地色作为主色调,逼真的营造出户外享受野餐轻松自在的气氛。一进门的柜台成列着小蛋糕,琳琅满目,形态各异,真是太吸引人了。看到几颗橙子你可能以为这是水果摊?其实这正是主厨最擅长的艺术分子料理作品。记得在之前的文章中,我介绍过分子料理,它常常被人们称为未来食物,超现实主义的感觉。它改变或重组了常见甜品里葡萄糖、维生素C等可食用化学物质的分子结构,从而创造出看似新奇的食物。例如说眼前这款橙子味蛋糕,它已经不再是蛋糕自然的形状,而变身成赋予它橙子味道的源头,那就是一颗可以以假乱真的橙子。更令人匪夷所思的是,这橙子皮是白巧克力做的。我忍不住开玩笑说,以后享受美食需要做足心理准备,因为所见非所想,所想非所味呢,哈哈。

另外一个柜台区域,摆放了很多别致的法式甜品,每一款都能感受到主厨浓浓的心意,那闪烁着金属光泽,表情像孩子般纯真俏皮的机器人是黑巧克力,可食用铂金,花瓣,这些在过去想都不敢想的东西,如今却成了美食家族的一员。感谢天马行空,脑洞大开的主厨创意,让当今美味不受任何束缚的改良和创新。在餐厅的每个角落,都有糖果,蛋糕和马卡龙制作成的长颈鹿,兔子,山羊和大熊猫,连大熊猫怀里也抱着小蛋糕,简直太萌了。

墙上挂着微笑柠檬先生的画,这是在向经典画作《戴黑帽的男人》致敬,是由比利时超现实主义画家玛格丽特在1964年所创作的。玛格丽特曾经说过,“我们眼前看到的事物,底下通常隐藏着别的事物。通常人们对于眼前显而易见的事情不太感兴趣,反而更想知道背后盖住的是什么”。总觉得这和梦幻感十足的分子料理有着共通点。从餐厅装饰可以看出主厨对于制作甜品真是激情澎湃,开放式的厨房里,厨师们忙碌着研究分子蛋糕,整个餐厅蔓延着甜甜的喜悦和热情。点餐完毕之后,好戏就要开场。先上来的是有机水波蛋,搭配了香槟茸,白花椰菜泥,酥炸藜麦,味道鲜香酥脆。

接下里主厨在我的桌上铺了一层绿油油的草皮,春心荡漾,仿佛立刻把我带人了野餐的情景当中。主厨Andrea Bonaffini友好的问候,并开始了他充满无限构思与遐想的野餐布阵。把准备甜品和排盘过程搬到桌面上,我还是第一次看到,并且不再是摆盘,因为整个桌面都是盘子。接下来各色咸食甜食就像走fashion show一样依次到场,手机相机根本停不下来,有的色彩鲜艳,有的造型小巧精致,很像玩具,这样的场景,想必会勾起每个人性格里童心未泯的那一面。我就像只充满好奇心的小猫,眼睛完全停不下来。美味齐上阵之后,主厨细心的用鲜花松果和糖果做成的假花进行点缀,最后借助液态氩制造出烟雾迷蒙的效果,让我脑海中瞬间闪过童话故事里小红帽拿着野餐篮在森林里散步的画面。待烟雾散去,甜点集会的草原出现在眼前,一切都是那么生机勃勃,真是太治愈系了。主厨挥洒完创意,还耐心的给我介绍每一种小点心,非常体贴。其中我最喜欢的是这黑色的Ricotta烟熏鲑鱼马卡龙,还有鱼子酱巧克力,把这些让我意料之外的甜咸事物拼凑在一起,真是让我大开眼界。

接下来隆重登场的是主厨桌边惊喜甜点料理,开始之前,主厨请我们抬头看了天花板上的小黑板,颜料挥洒的画作是餐厅先前推出的Yellow Art,今天他将运用挥洒的方式,以果酱和甜品作为颜料,餐桌作为画布,再现其艺术挥洒自如的甜品画作。我非常期待接下来的视觉与味觉盛宴。主厨在桌面上豪爽随性地尽情彩绘,缤纷糖果色的果酱上摆放了几块主蛋糕,各有千秋,粉红色蛋糕是由玫瑰,荔枝慕斯混合覆盆子果胶,香草海绵蛋糕和榛果脆饼,口味上也是惊喜不断呢。虽然从小到大没少吃甜食,但是以这样的方式吃创意甜品还是第一次呢,多重感官的体验确实难忘。在品味甜品之后,我来到了美丽华摩天轮,这百米摩天轮曾作为许多偶像剧的拍摄场地,黄昏落幕,我坐上摩天轮静静欣赏台北夜景,并结束这美味不断的一天。今天的美食之旅就要告于段落了,之后还有更多有趣的美食故事要和大家分享。

So many sweets! Can't reject Macarons. Really like the macarons from Pierre Herme~ I guess you will love them too;)

·
·

yes, thanks you
You really good

The girl in this post are simply a queen.

This is just so captivating.. Never been to yellow lemon but i feel like am there right now.
Everything looks so perfect.. The macarons, lemon cakes,chocolates, those animal sculptures made from desserts, damn am salivating (sad!! I wanna be there).
Then its another world entirely, the bambi.. Tom's world, ferris wheel, carousel, i've lost words to describe everything.
I admire Andrea Bonaffini for this great vision and most especially the humbleness (He prepares the main desserts himslef). I love this caption #Table; his canvas.. Ingredients; his painting pigments#.
Finally thanks @sweetsssj for this..
#I_love_steemit#

Enlightening!!
