Taipei Travelogue Part 6: Fu Hang Dou Jiang

IMG_0512I’m not sure if this eatery is on most tourists’ die-die-must-try-list, but it was on my friend’s list. So after we drop off our baggages at our hotel early in the morning, we took the train to get some local breakfast. We were warned of queues at this eatery, but we were not prepared for the queue that greeted us there. The queue snakes from the second level down the staircase along the sides of the building. That is crazy. Queuing for almost an hour at 8am, Taiwanese sure take their breakfast seriously.

The queuing system works like clockwork. All your orders have to be told at the beginning of the line and payment will be made at the end. The crew is quite particular with their way of serving their customers efficiently, so try not to change your orders at the end of the line.

IMG_0499Egg Pancakes: You’re not seeing double. This bears uncanny resemblance to our egg prata. The egg pancakes serve as a filling breakfast. Egg, dough and bits of spring onion fried together. The soft and greasy texture dough is complemented with the savoury taste of egg batter. Not a healthy choice but definitely delicious.
