Yonghe Chinese Breakfast


It took several tries and four trips to Taipei before I finally got a seat in this super famous shack of a breakfast shop in the Ximen area just across East Dragon Hotel. In an earlier trip, I used to stay at Easy Stay Ximen just a few doors down and everyday there would be hordes of people lining-up for fried dough sticks, salty soya milk, traditional sandwiches and dumplings. With no English spoken, I was too timid to try. But today, there was no line (maybe coz it was close to 9 already) and there were vacant tables!


I also saw a picture menu and simly pointed to a chicken chop in a mantou bun! I grabbed a table by the sidewalk and settled-in which was just as well as people suddenly appeared and there was a line.


My freshly-made sandwich arrived piping hot. The mantou bun was pillow soft and the chicken chop tender.


Filling and cheap (NT60)! Good morning!

    If you can, download Google Translate. It allows you to take a photo of a menu and translates it for you! It’s been a game changer for the wife and me.
