Why DONG QU FEN YUAN is special ?
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.
The topping choices included yam, green bean, red bean, soft peanuts, passion fruit, strawberry jam, gingko, pumpkin balls, almond and the famous 粉圆 which could be described as a larger sized pearl bubbles. The QQ balls glistered in the ice, and was sweet, chewy yet soft.
The hand-made ingredients were freshly prepared and would not be left overnight. You could also play with the different textures in your mouth – just like how you would to pearl bubbles. It was one of those fun-to-eat desserts, made all better by choosing a combination that you loved.
Unless some local desserts where the ingredients were meagre and tasted artificial like out of a can, this cooling dessert was fresh and crammed with goodness.

Tips for you
Just happened to come across this when hubby and myself were on a leisurely stroll through Zhongxiao Fuxing towards 101. Decided to rest our legs and have something to eat. Thoroughly enjoyed the hot red bean soup with the tapioca ball, yam ball, peanut toppings in the somewhat cold spring weather. A wide variety of toppings available from the usual (tang yuan, yam, sweet potato, etc) to the fruity (strawberry sauce etc). I couldn't stop thinking about it and have to go back for a 2nd bowl the day before I left Taiwan. Highly recommended!
