Is 阜杭豆漿 really that nice?

I like soya bean drink (with little / without sugar though) and only tried the 烧饼 in SG (the geylang branch).

The 烧饼+egg+you tiao together really nice eh? Like carbo + carbo to me (reads SINFUL leh).

- Danshui
- Shi Da
- Tong Hua (aka 临江街夜市)
- Raohe

Already been to Jiufen and Miao Kou too.

Will be going Ningxia for my next trip but i have 2 nights in Taipei, so wondering what to do.

I suggest you take a ride up to 文化大学。
Then book a nice spot for dinner.
It should be quite a good experience.

Gong Guan is good. It is made up of several streets. There is also a building with many stalls. A lot of people queue for those stalls, so I guess they are good.
