  A new shop, Kindori, specializing in fresh fruit ice-cream has opened up close to Tienshang Park. Though Kindori's exterior billboard is not much to look at and the store is a rookie ice-cream shop, its popularity more than makes up for it. Curious about just how good Kindori ice-cream is? Just take a look at their top-notch, Japanese ice-cream maker. It produces milk-based ice-cream for which customers choose fresh fruit to flavor with. The ice-cream is then placed on top of a sheet of crispy crepe which is made right before your eyes. Each bite is a burst of flavors and textures too amazing for words. All 20 types of fruits, combined with the vanilla ice-cream, are low in calories and wonderfully rejuvenating. The owner proclaims that “the customers come here for the products, not the name.” He was definitely not bluffing as the vanilla ice-cream is made from vanilla beans costing NT$20,000 to NT$30,000 a kilogram. The chocolate used here, Valrhona, hails from France. The fresh fruit is purchased locally. Who would have thought a Taiwan-based ice-cream shop would be so refreshing and of high-quality?
