Although this is Chris' third time to Taiwan, this is the first time I brought him to to the most famous eatery in Yunghe City, King of the World Soybean Milk. Shame on me.
When the slogan on their cup says, "World reknowned for over 50 years King of the World Soybean Milk" they're not kidding. Whenever I meet a fellow Taiwanese oversea, and I say I'm from Yunghe, almost everyone's reaction is, "wow, lucky you to live close by to the best soybean milk in the world!"
Chris ordered a small, iced soybean milk and I ordered a bowl of savory soybean milk (鹹豆漿). Savory soybean milk is slightly salted, topped with green onion, crumbled fried bread stick (油條) and dried daikon (蘿蔔乾), it is hard to find a place that sells sovery soybean milk in the state,which is why I ordered them. Otherwise, sweetend soybean milk is still my preferrred choice. King of the World Soybean Milk's soybean milk is famous for made freshly everyday in store, you can tell, because each sip is filled with the that freshly grounded soybean aroma.
We also ordered the "baked bread with beef" (燒餅加肉), actually I wanted the "baked bread + fried dough + beef + pickle" (燒餅油條加肉加酸菜), but I misread the menu . The beef is well marinated, quite flavorful.
Chris also wanted pot stickers and shrimp dumplings, but there are plenty of other places in Taiwan more famous for those two items, so I'm not gonna bore you with something mediocre.
Our whole meal came out to NT$245 (~US$7), quite cheap
