Taiwan Trip - A Morning at Longshan Temple

Our last day in Taiwan.

I asked the front desk where I could get a nice breakfast and he introduced a doujiang shop nearby. He particularly mention the xian dou jiang and the you tiao.

So we walked there.

The shop from across the road

The shop was full of people. We had no doubt that this was the perfect spot to have breakfast. We ordered quite a number of things.

Xian Dou Jian a.k.a salty soya milk. It is basically an unsweetened soya milk with vinegar, salty soy sauce, celery, and you tiao. It tastes like porridge. 
Egg Pancake with Floss Filling.
Dou Hua a.k.a Beancurd.
Mantou with Egg Filling. It's huge.
You Tiao and Soya Milk. The you tiao is soooo crispy.

This satisfying breakfast cost us NTD 179 (~SGD 7.5) and we were sooo full.

We continued our journey by MRT to Longshan Temple. This temple was built in 1738 by settlers from Fujian and it is a mixture of Buddhism and Taoist. Longshan Temple has undergone a few rounds of renovation after bombing by USA, after world war, after earthquake.

Quite a number of people prayed there and we were one of them. After that we continued our journey to our second last destination.
