Xanadu in Taichung – A Review of Evelyn


Athena Chen & Joanna Chiu

This time we would like to introduce a restaurant that has a pink signboard. We noticed this cute shop many times on our way home, but we really didn’t know anything about it. One recent rainy day, we wanted to find some place to relax, so we decided to go to this cute shop, “Evelyn.”

    Evelyn has two dining areas, indoors and outdoors. The outdoor area is composed of a fenced lawn. There are two tables and four chairs; it looks like a garden. When you go into Evelyn, you can sit at the bar or at a round table. The interior is painted bright pink, and they play light music, so the atmosphere is very relaxing.

    Evelyn provides light meals, drinks, and some snacks. You can order a la carte; however, if you want to upgrade your meal to a set meal, you need to add forty-nine NT dollars. A set meal includes egg or vegetable salad, and you can choose a medium drink. The price for an item a la carte is between eighty and one hundred and thirty dollars. Besides, they have free Wi-Fi, so you can bring your laptop and relax with a movie or work on your assignments.  


    After looking over the menu, Athena ordered the Complex Bricks set meal. Joanna ordered the Honey Toast set meal. First, the owner asked us what kind of salad we would like – vegetable or egg salad (made of egg and potato). Second, she brought us our drinks.



    While we were waiting for our meals, we chatted with the owner. We asked her why she opened this restaurant, and she said that she loves snacking on healthy food, so she opened the shop. After ten minutes, our main course was served. Complex Bricks is a cube toast hollowed out and then filled with smoked chicken and German sausage. Honey Toast has the same kind of toast, but it has fruit inside and two scoops of ice cream on top.



    The atmosphere in Evelyn is so relaxing that you won’t want to go home. Time flies, and we before we knew it, we had already been there for two hours! We think Evelyn is like Xanadu – a magical place far away from reality. Maybe one day when you are passing by, you will stop and join us!
