A perfect way to end our Taipei holiday. We loved the food and the hospitality here. Definitely will be back!

Odd as it sounds, I find mine in bustling shops like this where the proprietors are all busy serving their customers, all the clockwork rhythms. Perhaps this is ikigai for them?

You can have it sweet or savoury. I came here for the savoury.

I see a lot of the customers ordering these with the youtiao stuffed between them. So like the western sandwich except the filling here is youtiao. There was no sauce or anything else added.

This time I hunted down this Xiyuan Qiao Xia Shaobing Youtiao shop. It’s a small shop with clear division of labour and specialisation. Amazed at how she expertly makes the youtiao
