Back Again


Within ninety minutes of touching down at Taoyuan Airport, I was once again at Yong He Soymilk Magnate.

Savory soy milk

My mom’s warm savory soymilk with cut up pieces of yu tiao (fried dough stick) and scallions.  I prefer sweet soymilk, hot or cold, depending on the weather (which, on this trip, has ranged from cool high 50s to a sticky mid 80s).


Just some of our post-flight breakfast spread.  Each item cost between 15-50 NTD, so everything under $2US.

A closer look at the shredded radish omelette.


And a closer look at the fried dough-making process.  They do this outdoors for a large grab-and-go breakfast clientele.  Look at how small the dough sticks are before they puff up in the hot oil. IMG_7512IMG_7515

Note the extra-long cooking chopsticks and the prodigious amount of oil.


I’ll be posting more in the days to come on night markets, things in edible wrappers, and food on sticks.

    While you’re in Korea see if there is a “healthy” Gochujang. Low sodium, no MSG, no corn syrup.

    Oops. Looks as if you’re in Taiwan, not Korea.

    Love the photos of the frying dough.
