Learn TOEIC from The Dinners 從『樂子』學多益*

If you live in Taipei and have never been to one of the Diner‘s restaurants, you are missing outBIG TIME! The Diner has been a permanent fixture on my brunch list, and it’s one of the places I always highly recommend to friends for a scrumptious breakfast in the city. I especially like this branch, because it’s in a fairly quiet residential neighborhood, which makes it feel like you are having a breakfast at a loved ones’ house. 


1. miss out (phr.) 錯過
2. permanent (adj.) 永久的
3. fixture (n.) 固定的事物
4. scrumptious (a.) 美味的 = delicious
5. residential (a.) 居住的

reside (v.) 居住 <+in>


[NOTE] live也是動詞居住的意思,想到居民是不是因為是做這件事的人所以加-er在字尾形成liver呢? 但是liver是肝的的意思喔,就是器官的肝沒錯,所以居民請記得是resident (n.)



The Diner 樂子瑞安店 (Rui’An) offers plenty of seating in their two-story restaurant, but be warned that they are almost always filled to capacity on weekends, even when you get there super early. However, the service was top-shelf and speedy, as always.

Famous for their typical American breakfasts, you can get anything from classic eggs and bacon with hash browns, to Eggs Benedict, pancakes, omelets, French toast, cereals and many, many more. And that’s just the breakfast foods. The Diner boasts with an extensive menu, adding lunch and dinner options such as burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups, meatloaf, and an array ofappetizers and desserts, which you will never be sick of the same option here. On top of this, they also serve delicious drinks like smoothies, juices, coffees, teas, sodas, and THE BEST milkshakes you can find in Taipei! For the evening crowd, they have a wide selection of alcoholic beverages available, too.
