Soya Bean Drink is the name of the game and is a traditional Taiwanese breakfast drink. It goes along with You Tiao or Shao Bing. There is a place where the queue is long and the Dou Jiang, You Tiao and Shao Bing are amazing. This is Fu Hang.
It’s located at the Shandao Temple Metro stop in Taipei, and the line, well, let’s say it is long!
Here’s our experience queuing. You look at it from a distance and you can see it on the street. It stretches on the street back past the entrance to the MRT station on the right.
It’s not that bad right? It’s only that queue on the street. So you get into queue and see.You turn the corner and then realize that there’s a bit more to go, about half a block, and then you turn into the entrance to the building.
And then you realize that it goes to the second floor!
At this point, you’ve been in queue for about 15 minutes.OK, let’s see. The queue snakes its way up the stairs. And another flight of stairs. And finally you’re in! But wait, more queue! And more queue, after you get around the corner. In the meantime, take a look in the kitchen. Finally, you get there after 30 minutes!
The menu is not that big, but you better study, because ordering goes quick and they push you along. Make up your mind! Not a lot of english, in fact, almost none. Order drinks first at the first station and then order your bread at the next station are what the red signs mean.
We order our Dou Jiang, or Soya Bean drink. You can have it hot or cold, eating here in a bowl, or taking it away in a paper cup. Tell them, you can’t really go back once it’s done. Then they push you to order at the next station.
You can get them by itself, which people like to dunk into the Dou Jiang, or just eat it by itself.
Or you can get it wrapped inside a Shao Bing, or baked bread. This Bing can be Thin or Thick. If you want thick, you get Hou Bing. Thin to me is better.Wrap it up and eat away! Dunk it, eat it, just go for it and forget about the carbos. Why not supersize it?
