A belated post from Chinese New Year in Hualien.
The fact that this shop is like 1/2 processing plant for the ice and 1/2 tables for customers definitely adds to the intrigue.
From left to right, top to bottom: grass jelly, mung bean, taro, pineapple, red bean, kidney beans.
We always tend to go with the same flavours, as they are so damn good. Above you can see a mix of the red bean and taro, and also the kidney bean and taro. The taro is an absolute MUST, but I would say if you prefer a more savoury taste then the kidney beans are for you. Sweet tooth? Red beans or pineapple.
It’s only $50/bowl, so it’s definitely not going to break the bank, and the train from Hualien Station to ShouFeng is quick and fun – win!
Opening Times: Monday – Sunday 10:30 – 16:00 (be aware of closures over Chinese New Year and other times on certain dates TBC by the place itself, but you’ll probably only find that on the door)
