Taipei: Breakfast Foods


Soy milk (豆浆) is a staple in Taiwanese/Chinese breakfast foods and so incredibly good as the warmness (can also be cold) washes everything down; I always like mine sweet. The egg omelette on the turnip cake and oyster sauce (蛋并萝卜高) was a first for me, but I loved the combo.


Scallion pancakes (葱油饼) are delicious any time of the day, especially in the morning. What better way to start your day? Flaky. Chewy. Flavorful. Who knew flour + scallion = magic?


Waiting in line for my rice roll (饭团). The large wooden barrel was packed with sticky rice and of course, there were so many ingredients to choose from for the fillings.


Early morning in Taipei. I’m told that this street is normally packed if it weren’t the middle of winter. Known as “cram school street” or 补习街, this neighborhood is littered with tutoring centers and cram schools. I’m sure if I were visiting in the summer time, I would’ve waited at every breakfast stall.
