Hahaha what a title?!
But yeah, my first breakfast in my first trip to Taiwan last week was really good. According to my friend, we were eating in one of The Michelin-star food stalls, Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆浆).
We went to Fu Hang Dou Jiang which was only a few steps away from my AirBnB lodging.
Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆浆) is just Across the Street
Upon seeing the queue, I was a bit hesitant to go. I didn’t check the exact location of the food stall but I suspected the location is not at the same floor from where the queue started. FYI, the queue started from the first floor of Hua Shan Market and covered two sides of the building and up the stairs. (I didn’t google about this place, it just happened that our lodging was located right across the street.)
I thought it could take us an hour or two to reach the seller. But it didn’t happen. We needed to queue only for less than 20 minutes to reach their food stall which was located in the food court on the second floor.
It was all so quick and I got nervous when I arrived in front of the stall because everything was in chinese, including the conversation. It all went too quick. Hahaha STUPID! Good thing the attendant understood our situation quickly and she responded in English with the options we could get from the food stall.
The first option she gave us was the drinks. There are three types of soy drinks — hot sweet soy milk, hot salted soy milk, or cold soy milk. We opted to get the two bowls of hot sweet soy milk.
The next options were the food. We were already a bit get used to it and less nervous hahaha. We just pointed out what we wanted because the food was just right in front of us. We picked one fried dough stick (you tiao), one sweet sesame flat bread, and one egg pancake. Those items cost us 150 NTD.
Is Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆浆) Worth Trying?
Was it worth trying? I can say yes. Although they have a long queue, it’s still worth trying. Not to exaggerate the taste of the fried dough stick, but it really was good. Even though it’s similar to what we have in Indonesia. I mean if you’re in Taipei, why don’t you try it? Especially if you stay nearby the place.
