Fu Hang Dou Jiang. As a foodieventurer, I really DID try. This was where I stood when I arrived at 9 am. 30minutes later, I was 3 persons ahead. I turned back and saw 30 people behind me.
We played tags. I sent my spy to check the queue up ahead. Full all the way to the second floor.
Now my math is terrible (only scored lower B for Add Math in highschool), if I were to persevere, I would need to persevere 3-4 hours!?
Growls. Growls. Growls. Tummy can’t wait! Next trip then, Fu Hang! I’ll see you at 5 am.
We left the ridiculous queue and just across the street, a humble looking shop serving similar breakfast and oh well, the place was also filled with patrons.
Breakfast here it is then!
This zero oil roti canai-like thing is another local breakfast delight, supposedly eaten along with soya bean. It was so-so for me but the warm soya bean was oooooh lah lah! Great for a cooling morning!
We ordered another, served in a bowl, for easier dipping. My skin “felt” smoother by the sips!
This…was by far, my favourite. My first time ever having a savoury tau too far rendition. It never crossed my mind at all that tau foo far can come in other versions besides being sweet.
With the sliced crispy yao char kueys, spring onions, lard and meat bits, drizzled over with some vinegar to curdle up the soy, the tau foo far pretty much tasted like porridge but softer, smoother and less guilty? (Carbs).
I LOVE IT. Gobble gobble gobble.
This was another peculiar combination, a local delight as well. Roti telur wrapped with yao char kueh. Pretty hard to eat in one mouthful, in the end, we spread them out and eat each thing separately. It is strange to see how popular roti canai is in Taiwan actually, just that the flavour varied a little, with some essence of Chinese cooking.
Total damage: RM15. Steal deal!
Day 2 in Taipei surely started pleasant indeed! (Minus the boring 30minute wait).
Next foodieventure, where to???
