Double breakfast !
To tell the truth, I know nothing about Taiwanese foods before trip to Kaohsiung. I examined in advance on the books and websites and I found Taiwanese breakfast is attracting.
Taiwanese people drink soy milk in the morning.
Soy milk is popular drink in Japan, too. But we don’t drink so much, especially in the morning.
Most hotels prepare buffet for guests. But it’s differ from their traditional breakfast.
If we want to have Taiwanese traditional breakfast, we’d better go out of the hotel.
There’re so many restaurants that serve breakfast early in the morning.
Of course, if you don’t examine in advance, you can find breakfast spot here and there close to your hotel. If you can’t find anything, you can ask hotels staff about breakfast outside. They must know good spot.
When I visited Kaohsiung, I stayed in Jia’s Inn Liouhe Branch.
They prepare breakfast buffet, but it was very simple and there were few Taiwanese foods.
Fortunately, Jia’s Inn is very close to Xing Long Ju (興隆居) that is the most popular breakfast spot in Kaohsiung.
It was still 8 a.m., but there were lots of people ! (Left shop is popular, too !)
Xin Long Ju is close to City council station. It takes about 5 minutes walk. Also you can walk from Formosa Boulevard Station.
I know there’re many people in line in front of the shop from early in the morning.
Actually, when I got to there about 8 a.m., there were lots of people !
Though there were lots of people waiting, foods and drinks were served quickly on the tray, so I didn’t wait so long. Just about 10 minutes.
Soup buns are steamed in front of the shop and it smelled good. So much buns !
People who order soup buns follow left line and people who don’t order soup buns follow right line. Both FOR HERE and TO GO.
I followed left line to get soup bun.
Many Taiwanese people buy foods TO GO. So, there’re some vacant seats in the shop.Of couse, we have to share tables.
I ate in the shop.
There’re some seasonings between the kitchen and tables.Somehow I put sauce on the soup bun…maybe I was exausted in the order in Chinese…
But the soup bun (Tangbao, 湯包, 15 TWD) have much soup and so tasty.
If your hotel have breakfast, I recommend you take nutritious foods like salads and go out for second breakfast 😉
I ate in the shop. Somehow I put sauce on the soup bun… Maybe I was excited about the order in Chinese language…
But the bun have much soup and so tasty 🙂
Right is Cold soy milk (冷豆漿, 15 TWD). Also this shop adjust the amount of sugar. I ordered my soy milk with half amount of sugar.
Truthfully speaking, I had wanted to eat egg crep (蛋餅), but I couldn’t order well 🙁
