You’ve just gotta try the 永和豆浆 (Yong He Soya Bean Milk) at the fringe of Ximending. If you’re not into soya bean, not all is lost. It serves absolutely lip smacking 饭团 (glutinous rice rolls), 蛋饼(egg crusted rolls) and mantou. My favourite is the cheese and bacon glutinous rice roll, which is, well, melted cheese and bacon AND sweet preserved vegetables (菜卜）AND pork floss AND omelette wrapped in sticky, satisfying glutinous rice. It’s a gorgeous burst of flavours, and makes a wonder-licious breakfast.
To get there, just walk down the walkway that leads to Watsons. You’ll see a row of food hawkers on the left and Watsons on the right. Keep walking until you’ve reached the end of the walkway, and make a left turn. And there you’d find that humble little stall selling extraordinary food.
