Author lilrabbit129 ( ago)
Best fried dough I've ever had ( though very limited exp obviously) was at a random street vendor, at midnight, in Xuzhou. Even the wife commented multiple times, at nice restaurants, that it'll be worse than that one vendor.

We had the dough, and some soup i have no idea the name of.

Ichiran Raman noodle they have it in New York City, New York, USA if you still want to eat it yourself or with someone else. You should go try that place to see if the that place is as great as when you went to japan to try it there.

You love Hot Oil dont you 😂

which restruant( in your opinion that you tried) has the worst food ever?

Author Snowberry Ca ( ago)
Mike, you are a Chinese, should know soup dumplings are from east China like Suzhou or Shanghai, not Taiwan; Fried dough and Soy milk is from North China, like Beijing or Tianjin, not Taiwan. There were many Chinese are from Shandong Province brought Chinese food culture to Taiwan. And the founder of YongHe DouJiang restaurant, Mr. Li, YunZeng is one of them! This is a tradition Chinese breakfast in Taiwan, but it's not a TRADITIONAL Taiwan food! Please change the topic and stop making people think u are ignorant and careless for your own culture.

Yes, egg pancake, rice ball, soy milk, and fried dough are in the Taiwanese breakfast cuisine, but it's not "traditional taiwanese". The way you're eating or being served is basically a "modern" northern taiwan breakfast brought from china after WWII. Thus a traditional chinese breakfast. A traditional taiwanese breakfast would be bawan, oyster vermicelli, wagui, gua bao, oyster omlette, fish/meat ball soup, mugwort dumpling etc., served not just with soymilk, but an option for rice milk, peanut milk, milk tea. Or, if it's fried dough, you would eat it with a crusty bread, and not put it in the soymilk. And you need to go eat in places where there are big hokkien and hakka communities in Taiwan, not just in a community influenced by the mainlanders. I know because I'm half minnan and hakka. My ancestors were from Taiwan since the 1600's.

I use soy milk because I'm allergic to animal milks, but the texture of the savoury hot soy milk nope, couldn't do it . It looked like curdled cow milk, don't think I could be convinced lol but the Chinese bread stick things look yum. .

oh I think meat dumplings, soy milk, rice burrito, Chinese fried dough, scallion + egg pancake are a typical Taiwanese breakfast. the only thing he forgot to order is the meat bun. they are all so delicious though!

Author Infired so I got jams ( ago)
