A visit to this intriguing "rabbit's hole" offers some tasty treats. The two young men who run the place studied at Le Cordon Bleu and, being enthusiastic about French desserts, nothing makes them happier than seeing the satisfied looks on their customers' faces as they enjoy the treats they've made. Rabbits Hole's comfortable, cute-looking interior is another big draw, and a good environment for savoring the creative French desserts here. --By May, translated by Angel Pu
A. Crazy Cheeze (NT$120) features a crunchy caramel dessert topping that provides rich, lingering flavors. The owners boldly use blue cheese--a unique salty, slightly spicy flavor that leaves an appealingly smooth texture in your mouth. This is a time-consuming dessert to make and should not be missed.
B. For Rose Mousse with Raspberry, the owners use fresh edible red roses from Puli in Nantou county to produce the mousse. The thin top layer consists of raspberry jelly; between the mousse and the pastry at the bottom is a layer of handmade mashed taro; almonds and gooseberries are used for decoration. Two wings made of white chocolate finish off this sinfully-delicious treat.
