PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
Traditional Taiwanese breakfast at its best. Local commuters stop by for quick breakfasts of fried dough sticks (you tiao), sweet or savory bowls of warm soy milk (dou jiang), dumplings, or scallion pancakes before rushing for the metro or bus. Prices are dirt cheap, and the neighborhood camaraderie is priceless. There are a handful of tables crowded along the open counter, but most just grab and go.

WHY WE LIKE IT
Can’t get better than this for a traditional Taiwanese breakfast. We usually order a fried dough stick and cup of the sweet soy milk (or occasionally the savory version−either way, it hits the spot).
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
More seating, please!
GOOD TO KNOW
You may see signs with the same name on them dotted around the city, but they're not necessarily part of the same YongHe DouJiang chain (competitors have used the same or similar names to capitalize on the popularity of the original). The other location we recommend is on RenAi Road, just around the corner from the Sun Yat-sen memorial. Takeout available.
