Taiwan Trip 2014 - Day 6 - Taiwanese Traditional Breakfast Soy Milk at Fu Hang Dou Jiang 阜杭豆漿 at Huashan Market

Our last day in Taiwan, decided to head to the famous Fu Hang Dou Jiang 阜杭豆漿 at Huashan Market.

It was just one mrt stop away from taipei main station. Took the MRT to Shandao Temple and exit 5 to Huashan Market on the second floor.

Exit 5 has no lift or escalator, need to climb a number of stairs.

Once we exit out of Exit 5, we got a shock, there's along queue to almost to Exit 5,the time was around 8 am,if after 9 am, the queue could be even longer.

The queue was even in the market and on the stairs from first to second storey and took us about 1 hour to queue. We took turns to queue, brother in law and sis queue for the first half hour, while hubby and me browse around the area and then we queue the next half hour.

There's lot of sitting areas so dont worry about going up to "chope"/reserved seats first, it will derived those in the front queues of sitting places.

Once we reached the counter, the staffs were very fast in taking orders and calculating the cost of the breakfast. We got our breakfast in very quick time.

The breakfast were freshly made in the large kitchen and the buns were baked via the charcoal grill.

We had the hot soy milk.

Some yu tiao (the fried fritters- a bit too oily), buns, etc.

If you dislike queueing, there's another taiwanese breakfast eatery nearby called Yong He Dou Jiang with no queues.

After breakfast, we went to the market on the first storey, where they sold vegetables, meat, fruit, etc.

Spotted huge and beautiful looking wax apples. Been eating these wax apples during the night market during our trip, love it so much.

They were so costly, one box contained about twelve wax apples and sis bought 6 and I bought 6, 6 for NT500 but they were really juicy and sweet.

It really tasted so good, sweet and juicy.
