This popular shaved ice vendor in a small lane off of bustling ZhongXiao East Road keeps sugar junkies happy with overflowing bowls of shaved ice adorned with condensed milk and toppings like barley, red bean, passion fruit, gingko, almond, and pineapple. Part of the fun is mixing and matching toppings (a standard bowl comes with three) to create the best sundae possible. The space is pretty basic, but there are a few tables and some counter seating.
Taipei locals of all stripes, though the crowd leans younger, especially after school lets out in the afternoon.

WHY WE LIKE IT
This is seriously yummy shaved ice. Our personal favorite combo is green (mung) bean, barley, and tapioca.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
There’s always a wait, but the counter staff has an efficient assembly line to keep things moving.
GOOD TO KNOW
The menu is all in Chinese, but you can simply point to select your three toppings which are laid out in front of you, salad bar style. Dong Qu Fen Yuan also offers desserts like mung bean soup, sweet tofu pudding, and glutinous rice balls, but it’s really the shaved ice that’s worth coming for.
