Here’s what we ordered:
Hot Rice Milk 熱米漿
Wanted to try something new so we got the Hot Rice Milk. It was very rich and aromatic. Not too sweet. It had the fragrance of brown rice and was somewhat nutty.
Salty Soy Milk 鹹豆漿
I really liked the Salty Soy Milk; it reminded me of having porridge, but in a soy beancurd form. The soy fragrance was robust. The addition of dried shrimps, preserved radish, you tiao and spring onions gave it extra flavour and texture. Delicious!
Signature Thick Bread with Eggs and Donut Stick 厚蛋夾油條
This looked like a Chinese-style sandwich made with shao bing. When I picked it up, it felt really substantial. The thick shao bing had a slightly chewy texture with a crispy crust, and it had a sweet and salty flavour that was enjoyable on its own. The you tiao (donut stick) was crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and the soft egg omelette had a nice fragrance of spring onions. When I took a big bite of the sandwich, I was impressed by how well all the different textures and flavours worked together. If you love carbs, you’ll definitely enjoy this!
Sesame Flat Bread with Scrambled Eggs 薄餅夾蛋
The thin shao bing was completely different from the thick one as it was lighter and more flaky in texture. If you’re looking for something less dense, this would be a better choice than the thick bread.
Egg Roll with Donut Stick 蛋餅夾油條
The dan bing had a soft and springy texture, which provided a nice contrast with the crispy you tiao.
Fuhang Soy Milk offers great value for money considering the quality and freshness of their food and drink items. Overall, it is a must-visit food spot in Taipei. The lively and bustling atmosphere, along with the delicious and fresh food and drink offerings, efficient and friendly staff, and reasonable prices, make it an excellent choice. We highly recommend giving Fuhang Soy Milk a try for a taste of traditional Taiwanese breakfast!
