There’s a douhua shop named Beans Village (豆花荘) close to Ningxia night market (寧夏夜市). I always eat at the shop when I visit the night market and go nearby. Douhua cost from 40 TWD, so I visit there as if I buy drinks at the drink vending machine 🙂
They have started their business in 1965, but they were renovated in March 2016, so it’s still new.
They are located just close to Ningxia Night Market. It takes about 10 minutes walk from both Shuanglian station (雙連站) and Zhongshan station (中山站).
They are really crowded while the night market’s business hour. There’re tables and chairs on the 1F and 2F. There’re two lines for getting douhua. Right line is for “to go” and left line (inside the shop) is for “for here”.
If you want to eat inside the shop, you order and pay at the cashier and get your sweets on the tray. And then you have a seat anywhere you like.
Not only douhua but also toppings are made by them inside the shop.
This is on 2F. There are more seats than 1F.
This is the menu. From right, shaved ice, douhua (tofu pudding), and warm soup (winter limited). Douhua can be chosen from warm (winter-limited) and cold. Taro (芋頭), Black sesame pastes in rice-flour dumplings (黒心白玉) is 15 TWD, and another is 10 TWD each. They have menu having English and Japanese words with photo.
Yummy foods that I had
Douhua with peanuts (cold)
This is the No.1 douhua in this shop. Douhua with peanuts (花生豆花, 40 TWD). It’s cold one. The douhua was covered with shaved ice like sorbet and peanuts syrup. Cold douhua have ice. The staff said to me “Ice ?”. So, I said “yes, please”. Price is not change. This peanuts syrup was very sweet, and plenty of syrup was put on the douhua.
Douhua with taro ball (warm)
This is douhua with taro ball (芋圓豆花, 40 TWD). Warm one. Taro balls had springy texture ! This amber colored syrup was warm and sweet. It had mild tastes. Warm douhua was good, too.
Almond jelly shaved ice
Last, it’s not douhua. Almond jelly shaved ice (杏仁冰, 40 TWD). Because its name have “冰”, you might think it’s shaved ice, but its almond jelly. There’s much almond jelly and shaved ice cover on it.
The almond jelly wasn’t too sweet. It had refreshing tastes. Like jelly 🙂
After eating, you don’t have to return dishware. You need just you leave the shop with your all belongings 🙂
