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).

Quite tasteless if you ask me.

Dear all gurus

Any night markets worth visiting in Taipei?

I have been to the followings NM so wanna check any other NM worth visiting for my next trip:

- Shilin (briefly only, not to the basement)
- Danshui
- Shi Da
- Tong Hua (aka 临江街夜市)
- Raohe
- Hua Xi

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.

TIA!

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.

Tell me more please.

How about Gong Guam NM?

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.

I know but why got uncle asking for it?

I went to 阿宗面线 just now and there was a box asking you to donate your 发票。

Customers can participate in lucky draw, like big sweep. it is an incentive to for customers to insists the vendor to issue receipts. Receipts can help to ensure vendors do not try to evade tax.

If someone does not want the receipt, eg. tourists, can drop the receipt into the box. The winning will be donated to the charities.

Just like twosix said, receipt donation mean you donate your prize money to whichever charity
